Playing catch up Part 1

January has been a fun, busy month for our family. I can't believe I've barely posted this month, but then with how busy it has been it's really NOT surprising!!! Sheesh- did I even talk about Christmas yet? I'm sooo behind. I am tempted to just say "Go read my sister's blog. She's updated more than I have..." But I won't. I'll just give super short, Reader's Digest versions of everything... Lucky y'all...

Christmas was great. My sister and her family came down for the holiday which made my kiddos happy.

This pic is me with my AUTOGRAPHED bball-- signed by none other than DIRK Nowitzki. My sister-in-law, Lissette, works for the Maverick's dentist and got to meet Dirk last Sept. or Oct.. I was totally jealous that she was hanging out in an elevator with my fave Mav! Little did I know she had his sign a ball for me. I was so surprised and touched that she gave me such a sweet, exciting gift that I cried. You didn't see that comin', did you?

Livie started ballet and tap in December. Actually, she just started ballet, but she added tap this month. She smiles the ENTIRE class. She loves it!!!! I never thought I'd have a kid in dance, but she is in love with it. She liked gymnastics, but she talked non-stop about being a ballerina. I'm not sure where she gets it, but whatevs. Here's a couple pics. Of course she's MY daughter in that she's wearing the funky colored stuff... No boring black and pink for her!
