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!!

Wow! SEVEN daughters! I thought that I was busy! The skirts are adorable (if only I could sew...) and I could do without snails, but they don't gross me out nearly as much as my arch-enemy of all bugs: the CENTIPEDE! *shudder*

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I can't wait to read more of your's!

Cute, Can you believe that some people dislike the Dance Festival. I loved, loved it when the kids were in it. Loved the twilrly dresses, used to be the fuller, the better.

I hate ( I mean, dis-like) missing the dance festival. I wanted to be there but that evening had many other demands. Savannah and Sicily look so beautiful. Great job on the skirts. I too loved the dresses Mom made us for the dance festival. I bet Sicily was sooo cute hula hooping.

* we must have had the same mama ;)wink wink. "hate is a very strong word"
