Back to Ballet 2011

And so it begins again! Ballet is back for the 2011-2012 school year. Thankfully we are not driving 500 miles for lessons this year! YEA!!! We managed to find lessons for ballet and piano right here in town. Its wonderful and the girls are already having a blast.

New do!

One night this week Little Bit fell asleep early so Miss Priss and I were able to spend some quality time together. We decided to try an experiment. Both girls love to have their hair braided, but they love to take it down after a while and see the crinkled curls even more. So, we thought we would try it out on Miss Priss's whole head this time and let her sleep in them overnight. It took a long time to complete the braids, but in the end I think she was quite satisfied with the results.

The morning after she had slept in the braids all night. She was so excited and ready to take them down!

Finally getting to take the braids down.

Little bit had to get in on the action too! She loves to help her big sister do anything!

The final product. Feeling her time was well spent having to sit and have her hair braided!

 From the side.

My favorite quote from the morning: "Momma, I look like Taylor Swift!"
Gotta love her!

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head....

This past weekend was certainly a rainy one! Since it has only rained oh maybe half an inch over the past month, we were pretty glad to see it! I knew the rain would be falling for a few days so I had the girls go play outside while they could Sunday morning before the rain moved in. As they were playing it started to rain. Instead of coming in, they wanted to continue playing outside IN THE RAIN. Of course I had to say yes! They know if its not lightning, mommy will probably say yes. 

So they gathered their umbrellas and preceded to get soaked! What a fun rainy day!


Little Bit's poor umbrella just wasn't holding up!
The decided to ditch the umbrellas and just get soaked! What better way to accomplish that than to jump in some puddles!

 She will probably have my head for this picture one day, but I couldn't help myself. Her face was just too funny!

I think they enjoyed their rainy Labor Day weekend! I know I sure did. Let it rain!
