Christmas Time is Almost Here

Christmas Eve was an eventful day.  First we went to church and saw "real" snow that was man made.  Gabby LOVED church, they played a lot of loud music and Gabby would dance and "sing" along, it was adorable!  Then, we went to Grandma and Papa's with Grandma and Grandpa and had a gumbo dinner while visiting with Chelli, Aaren, Nanny, and Aunt Ellen.  After eating, taking a nap and socializing and tasting yummy treats we gathered around the computer to educate Gabby on how Christmas is supposed to go! Her cousins, Cate, Reagan, and Molly Skyped and we watched them open their gifts!  It was a lot of fun watching the fun of opening gifts.  Gabby was very tired so after we finished watching the cousins in Japan celebrate Christmas we headed home to get ready for Santa.  We set out milk and cookies (which Gabby took a taste of) for Santa on his special plate and then went to sleep so Santa could come.

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  













Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:







I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).



Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
