DANCE FESTIVAL & TIERED SKIRTS
Last week our elementary school had their 57th Annual Dance Festival!
This has been a neat tradition in our families for a few generations. I loved dancing in the festival! One reason, my mother always made us a new dress (full skirt to twirl and all with!) the other, being a girl, I loved to DANCE!!
That being said, here are some skirts that I made Savannah & Sicily for this years dance festival - all Full & Twirly!!
Here, Scottland (wearing her skirt) & Sophie (just loving to be held!) are posing for a picture!
SNAILS - ANYONE?
I don't like the word 'Hate', yet when it come to SNAILS - I dis-like them very, very, very (did I say VERY) Much!! Which is very close to hate!
So, my kids get a kick out of showing them to me.
Just yesterday, they come running in the house so excited to show me a neat treasure, when to my great dismay, Sicily says 'Mom, look at the cute, tiny baby Snail'! I look down and freak out, because my BABY, little Sophie (she's 18 mo.) is holding a Blasted Snail!! Upon closer examination it was just the shell, but still a slimy creature housed that shell! In all their excitement about how cute the tiny things are, I am constantly telling them 'Take them out of the house, clear across the road, far, far away!!' !
You see, many moons ago, I used to weed someones flower bed, in which, a bunch of SNAILS were hidden. Sneaky little villians! So, long story short, I don't like the Crunch & Slime of them!
And wouldn't you know it, today the kids were watching the tv show- Between the Lions (on KUED, it teaches the kids to read, cool show!) and they had a feature about SNAILS! Pure coincidence? I don't think so, someone upstairs has a sense of humor and is getting some laughs using me!! That's okay, I have one too - Just keep the real Snails away from ME Please!!
