Dancing Beauties

Last week the kids took dance pictures.  Here is my beautiful ballerina:
 She loves dancing.  Since she got her costume she has asked me "when am I going to dance on the big stage?".  I thought she would be scared and not dance last year.  However, that was not the case.  She loved the stage and cannot wait to get back there!  Too funny!

Addie Lee and Kaylee:
 Sidenote Story:  A few weeks ago Kaylee was at my house after dancing and she pulled a bracelet out of her bag and said "Addie, I got this for you."  The bracelet says "Friends".  AL is so proud of that bracelet that she will not take it off, not even for a bath.  She tells everyone Kaylee gave it to her and it says "good friends"!  Kaylee's mama does not know where the bracelet came from, how Kaylee got the bracelet or how she knew what it said!  A mystery, but it makes both girls so happy!  They really are good friends.

Addie Lee, Kaylee, and Marrah Beth:

The boys also accompanied us to the pictures.  They were a little rowdy, but hey, they are boys!

Addie Lee not happy that I'm making her take this picture but Kimber was excited:

A quick snap of the boys.  One of the only times they were semi-still!

They were not still for long.  This is them peeking through Jessica's legs.  Not sure what they were doing besides distracting her from talking.  Thank goodness the pictures did not take long!

Eleven Grands

We had a real adventure yesterday....we attempted to take pictures of my grandparents and their 11 great grandchildren that range from 11 years of age to 1 year.  It was interesting to say the least.  

My grandparents have been married 60 years.  My grandmother will turn 79 this Sunday and Pappaw will be 80 in April.  They are a true testament to faith and love.  They are very God centered and have always gone to church.  My papaw told me a story one time.  He said he went to college for one day at LSU and decided he had enough and wanted to come back to my mammaw.  He doesn't talk much so to get that out of him was a lot.  My mammas still teaches piano three days a week and my pappaw has his cows he tends to every day.  They have four children, twelve grandchildren, and eleven great grandchildren.  We are a truly blessed family.  Here are some pics from yesterday:

You can see that Kaylee is crying.  First, she slammed her finger in the door and was then promised she could hold Camille (the baby in the picture) and she did not get to do that.  So she was upset.  Kimber was actually doing good at this point.  However, after Kaylee got a spanking he no longer wanted to cooperate. He only wanted to be with me!  It's hard to get 11 to cooperate at one time!
My mama is very creative and made these letters.  If you're wondering what it says it is "GREAT GRANDS".  You can see Kimber's cooperation at this point!
I actually thought this one was pretty cute.  And the kids LOVED climbing no the fence.  Not sure why Cade is hiding his eyes!
Here is another attempt at Great Grands.  Maybe it's just a word scramble!

Potty Training

Just an update on the potty training.  My little boy, or should I say big boy, is doing excellent.  The first day we were like 2 for 8 (or worse, I can't remember).  But since Monday, he has only had one tt accident and that was today.  So, I think he's doing great!  However, he has not learned about going number 2 in the potty.  Any suggestions are welcomed!  Every day he has gone in his undies.

On that same note, Addie Lee is a little upset that she cannot tt standing up!  She asked if she could go like that and I told her no.  She was most upset when Kimber was allowed to stand outside and do it!  She tried to do it too, but to no avail!  She also asked me if I could cheer for her when she goes to the potty!  I thought that was priceless!!

She also fell into the toilet for the first time!  We forgot to put the seat down and she had just woken up from her nap and she fell right into the her princess dress nonetheless!

Maybe that was TMI, but I figure you could have stopped reading at any point!
