Update Here

Thought it was time to do an update for everyone. The holidays are approaching and as always a lot going on. We are getting very excited that my Mom will be finally moving down after 5yrs of not living down here with us. It is said because she is being laid-off from her job, but we will have our family all together! Sorry Quinn and Bella no more airport trips.

Twins: They have been doing good. They are loving their dance classes tremendously, having fun and participating without Mommy in the room. They are currently learning a little holiday dance to show parents the last week of classes before break. Of course I'll videotape and post! Nanny will be able to watch them every week when she is down here and I know they will like that. Quinn has a major attitude that has to be adjusted, or should I say temper! We never want to clean, help pick up, eat and just throw tantrums. I know it's the terrible 3s, but come on! We are slowly getting better, time-outs are happening more often. Bella is little miss bossy! She doesn't like it when she is asking Jay something and I answer for him she says, "Mommy I was talking to Daddy!." OK! When Quinn is bad she is little miss goody-2-shoes. They are both growing fast, as I just cleaned out their closets and drawers and they have like no clothes! Anything 3T is still big but 2T is too small! I do have to say even with their attitudes lately they are very SMART!! They are going to do great in school.

Brinlee: She is progressing so fast! She wants to do everything the twins are doing. She is picking up very fast, even though she can't talk. We are trying to teach her some sign language to help with the understanding of what she wants. She does babble a ton now, and last night she really was saying Mama A LOT!! Her new things she likes to do is play in the toilets, the dogs water bowl and eating crayons! So bathroom doors are now Always shut and trying to keep the crayons out of her mouth, I'm sure we'll see some interesting poopies. She plays well with the twins, and Bella loves to play with her. I am wondering how she will do when the twins go to school next year?

As for Jay and I pretty much the same old stuff. I am teaching now 6 days a week, and trying to get Christmas events/choreography done while also trying to organize and find music for recitals already. I am glad I have this next week off but probably won't get much done...I hope to do the Christmas decorations, clean up the house, bake some cookies for our studio open house, make some bows, and have fun when my mother comes into town at the end of the week! Then come December a lot of Christmas shows with the studios, parades, and wonderful family vacation I'm looking forward to in Dec because Adam and Judy are coming into town too!! Then right before Christmas I'm going in for foot surgery on December 22nd! What a Christmas gift for myself huh? I have to get my bunion fixed, it's been hurting constantly now, and better to get it done before the end of the year. So a long 3mo recovery, with the first 2 weeks doing nothing. Hope that goes well! I will try to keep you updated too.
Jay will be busy with the next week of doing LightHouse installs. Yea for Christmas time! This is our favorite time. He has about the same amount of clients as last year, we are hoping that within the next few years the business will grow.

Be sure to watch HGTV the day after Thanksgiving for a special from Disney. We went to the cast preview of Spectacle of Dancing lights and HGTV was there filming! We might get on we don't know. You won't be able to miss the girls with their BOWS!! At the preview too we got to meet David Bromstad from Color Splash! He is so nice, I wish he could come do a room in my house PLEASE?

I think that is it for now, I will be updating the theme of our blog of course to Christmas soon, yea for a new look and some new slide shows soon too. Sorry for the long post, had to update you on a ton of things.
