Winter Piano Recital

Today Kyler and Danika had a piano recital. Kyler has been taking lessons for a year and a half and Danika for just about 6 months. They love going to class and I am impressed with how much they are learning!!! Look at how cute my piano players look!Check out Danika, age 4, playing the baby grand on stage in front of at least 60 people.....

And Kyler who is just way too cool for all the pictures.....

Danika was just in love with her recital dress. And I found some flowers to match the one on her dress and made a barret for her hair. It was pretty cute!

Proud mommy and daddy with their piano players....

We are off to dinner to celebrate!

Valenintes Snow

I am a little behind on my blogging. It was a crazy busy week with school, kids, mops, bible study, etc. And next week will be even busier as Scott starts his RN training and will be working all days. Plus, I start my classroom observations next week and the kids have several appointments! Busy Busy!!!

I am so glad that we had the opportunity to take a mini vacation to Flagstaff over Presidents Day weekend. Scott had 5 days off in a row and Kyler had 3 days off from school. I figured we w=ouldn't have this kind of opportunity until school is out and Scott is done with training over the summer. So this time was special for sure. And the kids had the best time sledding, having snow ball fights, going out to dinner, and staying the night in a nice hotel. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip...

My Valentine

It was so much fun to have an entire day to ourselves to celebrate Valentine's Day!

We went and did some shopping together. Scott was thrilled when we went to Costco and I was excited to hit Carters and the mall!!! Then we went to Black Angus for steak, shrimp and wine for dinner. Finally, we went and saw the movie Dear John. We went to a movie after dark! I can't remember the last time we got to do that!!! I love my sweet husband and so enjoyed spending time with him!

Happy Vaelntine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to my sweet husband. I am so lucky to be his Valentine every day of the year!!!

We got to spend an entire day together with no kids yesterday. We had lunch with a friend, went shopping, a nice dinner, and a movie. It was great! And then today we took the kids up to Flagstaff for some sledding and snowball fights. I have lots of pics, but I forgot to pack my camera cord! So pics are coming soon!

More of my photography class homework....

When my instructor announced this weeks homework assignment, I was really bummed! We were told to take landscape pictures. I know I am the odd one in my class, but I hate taking landscape photos! I like people in my pictures!!!! For the assignment we are required to take 36 different pictures of the same subject. I think it is so much harder to make a moutain or a tree look 36 different ways! Much easier to just move a kid around in different positions and have different facial expressions! So I was challenged this week. But I think my final product is pretty cool!!! Here are my favorites....Can decide if I like it better in black and white or color....

I took these at Villago park. Hope the teacher likes them when I go to class today!

Photography Class Homework

I am taking a photography class at the community college. It is a little too easy for me, but I am still having a good time. And I am going to have a photo in an art show at the college in a couple of weeks!

I got Danika to be my first model for a homework assignment. She was so good!
