This is the first year that I bought Easter dresses for the girls, they have been made or given to me by other people, but I was on my own this year.
For some reason it is hard to get Megan to smile in pictures all the time.
Megan was quick but grandpa was quicker.

I tried to take a single picture of Alyssa but she ran away crying so I just got Megan.
Here is a project I did, they are just plastic eggs covered with none other than cross stitching thread, I really liked how they turned out.

Dance Recital!!

After three months of practicing the day is finally here!! The first class that I tried to sign alyssa up for filled up within a few hours but the older class of 5-7 year olds had openings so I lied on the form and said her birthday was december 28 because she needed to be 5 by January 3 and she didn't turn 5 till january 11, but I'm really glad it worked out this way because she would have been the oldest in the younger class and the older class was a full hour so she got to dance more. Anyway, there will definatly be more dance classes to come but the first is always special.
If you want to see videos go to
And to see Megan dance go to

Practicing in front of our apartment

Of course Megan had to do it too!
Two super stars!!

She stood up there waving for the first few minutes until the music started and then it was all business from there.

She prefored two dances with a costume change inbetween, and she even let me do her hair which is a battle just to get it brushed.
