a singer and a ballet dancer

In the last few days since I have not posted, alot has happened to post about. Saturday morning we had a dress rehearsal for the preschool choir who would sing in church on Sunday morning. Here Addie is singing....or is she doing the chicken dance?

... after practice we had a pizza party...

...and after pizza we gathered in the hallway to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and blow out the candles on His cake. The kids all wanted to know how old He was???

As you can see, Addie is tired of me taking her picture.

Nick and Anna at church the next morning.

She really looks enthused. We didn't get good pictures. Still trying to figure out the settings on my camera. We did get a good video though. The kids did a great job. It was really cute to watch!
After church Anna and I went to see the Nutcracker at Converse. My little sister,Emma, is one of the "cherubs" and we go every year to watch her. Anna tells me she wants to be in the Nutcracker one day. Does she actually realize she has to take ballet? She really does love it. Me, not so much. I go for Emma and Anna's entertainment. I am just not a fan of ballet. Anyway, here are some pictures:

We usually finish off by picking out an $8 Nutcracker on sale for $16 which usually gets broken within the day. And sure enough, it broke when we got it home. I just can't get her to understand that it is for display and that it will not actually crack nuts!! Some superglue should do the trick. All joking aside, I really look forward to this because its just Anna and me time!!

I'm not a ballet fan either, but I bet Ella Kate would love it!! I'll have to take her one year. Addie's chicken dance is cute! :)

Hey girl,
I love your blog and am so glad you are keeping up with it. Your girls are too beautiful and I can't decide which one looks more like you or Nick. I need your address. I sent a Christmas card and it came back to me today. Email me at ajbyars@gmail.com
