And I feel like my last post was very ill timed. I hope I didn't give the impression that I was mad. Really, I was thinking aloud (or in print) and didn't mean for that to coincide with a post-less week. I promise to be back with more craftiness to share (in fact I've got a number of things in the works).
Until then, here's a little of what we've been up to. My Kindergartner Hallie performed in her theater class play this weekend. She was a munchkin in a play where they combined music from TheWizard of Oz and Wicked. It was very cute, and she has been talking about it ever since. At the end of the play they had an "Academy Awards Ceremony" where they all get to take a bow and receive a trophy. This trophy made all the money I spent on this class totally worth it. This is Hallie's first trophy, and I don't believe a trophy has ever been more loved. The funny thing is that the trophy is basically a naked man, and after Hallie got it she couldn't stop saying, "Look at the butt on this guy." and then Dallas chimed in with a funny butt joke that only 2nd graders and mothers could love. This guy goes to the doctor and says, "Doctor, there is something wrong with my butt, I think I need a new one." The doctor says, "what seems to be the problem?" And the guy replies, "it has a crack in it." Sorry Mom! That might be the most crass thing I've ever put on my blog (which tells you a little bit about me) but I thought it was too funny, and had to document.
Before we left for the show I wanted to take some pictures of Hallie. Anyone who knows anything about this girl will appreciate these pictures. Hallie definitely likes to pose for the camera, and while taking pictures of her I'm usually saying, "be normal, stop posing, just let me get one normal picture." But really I love Hallie's personality and find the posing to be quite funny and very classic Hallie.
Then Dallas came out to join the party and I got a few good pictures of the two of them.
Before this happened.
And then we were done with the photo shoot.
