Dayne the Series

 Dayne is continuing her quest to have her picture taken with dummies.... I guess we could call her an artist and this is her medium!

The Boy at Bat

Again. The only people that will care are my folks. But please enjoy!


It's the same dance as before. It's a little glary at the beginning. We love the Baby Dayne and her dancing!

Check out this great new poster I am having printed. It was a free download but I then sent it to Costco to have printed. They had it a handful of color options. And I can't find where I got it from.... I'll work on it.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Things about Baseball and Crewe:
1.  Crewe is playing for the Texas Rangers.
2. He was drafted to play in the Minors.
3. We have been to a MILLION games already. And have a million more. (The season started in Feb and his last game is in June) But loving it!! Dayne is a fantastic cheerleader.
4. He has great Coaches and has truly been learning how to play baseball.  Every game he is getting better.
5. Crewe said to me to the other night, " Mom the best parts are being the pitcher or the catcher." I replied, "Crewe you are great at playing second base. You rock!" 
" Mom, just because I play that position doesn't mean I am good at it."

We disagree buddy. Take us Out to the Ball Game....

She Came. She Danced.

 The big night happened. We had Dayne's dance recital this past weekend. She did such a good job. Dayne kept saying, "I'm so excited. This is going to be AWESOME!" Dayne and her BFF, Bella, were so happy to be in costume, wearing makeup and preparing in for the night in the dressing rooms. When the curtains came up and she hit the stage.... she danced her heart out. No smiles but an earnest face as she worked on her routine. We are so proud of her!! Good Job, Goose!

 The Star is done for the night. She is beat and can perform no more.

The Roses were from one her biggest fans, her Brother.

Mother's Day

 Brace Yourself. I got a Bike for Mother's Day. I have not been on a bike ride in almost 20 years. At least. I never have loved the whole bike thing. Which is sad because my husband LOVES being on a bike. My kids are split on the whole thing. So I decided that we needed to work on a becoming a "Bike Family". Whalla......

*Not Great pictures but a cute one of dayne and then a cute one of Crewe. *  All the same I am happy to be celebrating Mother's Day with my cute kids that made me a Mother. Best. Thing. Ever!

PS Happy Mother's Day to my Mom. And to AJ. Love you both!!

Off He Goes

 Crewe is going on a field trip today. I am missing him. He has been so excited for the field trip. They are going into the city to the California Academy of Sciences. They have an albino alligator, big excitement for First Graders.

When I packed his lunch I also included these cute lunch notes that my sister-in-law, Kelli, made for me for my birthday. I liked getting to have a little note to send with my boy today!!!

Girls Weekends

 I only took 3 pictures from this past weekend. Which sucks, because I had the best time and I wish I had more photos from a GREAT weekend.  We went to Utah this year and it was cold. But the food was so mixed ( we ate Buffalo chicken pizza and went to a French bakery) and delicious ( Moochies for the BEST potato salad in the WORLD). The company was Divine! ( I love getting to pepper my sister-in-laws about the daily details of their lives and their kids). The shopping was good, no black sandals that I looking for but a funky piece of art and a new little clock.

Thanks Mom and Dad! And thanks Rich for taking good care of the kiddos all weekend!

Dayne the dancer

I put these videos on the blog so my parents could see dayne dancing. I was pulling them off and my mom protested. These are from her rehearsals today. The big night, in costume is Saturday.
