Dance, Dance, Dance

I personally love the Dance Festival. Sweating your guts out while watching the dancing ability of an entire grade school, what could be more fun?
Gavin's kindergarten class danced to "Ballin' the Jack". He knew the whole dance and sang the song many times at home. When I went to get a picture of him, this is what I got:
First he put his two knees close up tight
Then he swayed 'em to the left and then he swayed 'em to the right
He stepped around the floor kinda nice and light
Then he twist around twist around with all of his might
He put his loving arms straight out in space
All with this grumpy look on his face.

Okay, I added that last line. I could not get this kid to smile, he looked so mad. Kind of reminded me of the birthday breakfast incident.

Owen's class rocked to "Hip to be Square".

Owen is in the bright orange shirt in the middle-ish of the picture.

Field Day is a whole other beast in itself. I just can't wait for next year when Gavin is in First Grade and he doesn't have to attend with a parent!

You can watch the dance festival videos and more on YouTube!

A Girl and Her Dog

Last summer Molly LOVED our dog. Here's proof.
He used to lay right by her, lick her hands and face, and she couldn't have cared less.
We are currently working through her learned fear (from her brothers) of Cockleburr. She would want to go in the back yard, but walking past the dog would stop her. She would say "Cockleburr's scary", then I would tell her he is not scary, he is nice. She would repeat that until we started toward him, then quickly jump and flinch while he lies on the grass looking at us with his one eye that works. Poor dog. Just this week she has decided he may not be so bad. She started feeding him grass and talking all sweet to him. Now, every second of the day she want to go see Cockleburr.

You can watch the videos of all this cuteness and more on YouTube!

Dear Josh,

Today I was going to write a great post all about the most fantastic dance festival and field day we have experienced thus far in our grade school lives. Since this was the first year both of your sons were involved, it was guaranteed to be spectacular. It makes my heart break you were not able to participate due to previous obligations (i.e. work), but thanks for bringing home the bacon. However, due to reasons unforeseen (you going to Price to bike ride) by myself (just kidding I totally knew), all I did today was take the kids to Burger King and read a book. There's always next week.
Love, Kellie
P.S. Thanks for your great comments that never fail to prove to me that your interested in what I have to say!

My Big Behind

Oh wait, I think I meant "I Am Behind Big Time".
This is going to be a super long post, and I know on some people's blogs that if they do a super long catchy up post, they say "I won't feel bad, you don't have to read the whole thing". Well this is not some people's blog. You do have to read the whole thing (and you will like it), because I will feel bad and there will be a test on it later.
Enjoy the following, in no particular order.

Mother's Day was fantastic! I received many handmade gifts with sweet hand written notes from my wonderful children. I love how excited they get about these presents! They also gave me some flowers that did get planted and look so nice. Josh gave me a wonderful new set of pans! How'd he know that's what I wanted? Maybe because I bought them and set them on the floor on his side of the bed. Maybe. I really needed them I promise. We have had the same pans since we got married and the teflon has almost all come off. I think this is why food slides right out of some of us.
My birthday was the day after Mother's Day (the 11th for those of you who want to write that down, since Mother's Day changes ever year) and I was seriously concerned about what Josh was giving me. All week he was asking me if I wanted to know what it was, but he didn't care if I liked it I was getting it anyway, but it all depended upon someone else supplying him with it first. You would be worried too, right? Well he COMPLETELY surprised me with a QuicKutz Silhouette! I am so excited, but I have to get it out of the box before he gets home today or he has threatened to take it back. I do know that his "supplier" is out of the country for a few days, so good luck!
The entire third grade participated in doing a Time Machine. They chose someone and do a written report and poster and then they dress up as that person and come out of the Time Machine and do an oral presentation. Owen's person was Meriwether Lewis. If you just asked yourself who in the "H" is that, you're not alone. Meriwether Lewis was co-commander on the expedition known as the Corps of Discovery. Still don't know? One half of Lewis and Clark. Remember them? How in the world Owen got stuck with this guy is still a mystery. However, I (I mean he) did a great job on his report and poster, and he did memorize and deliver his presentation out of the time machine with excellence!

On Monday (my birthday) Gavin decided he was ready to take the training wheels off of his bike. Last night he was cruising around the church parking lot. Josh was so proud, if you don't believe me, just check his current facebook status.

Now for the really fun stuff! If you've read this long, you will be rewarded.

Well Molly wants to go outside, so that's all folks! Oh wait, who watched Grey's Anatomy last night? Did you have a box of tissues by you? Holy Cow! I loved it soooo much, but don't want to wait all summer to find out what is going to happen. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! Check out Grey Matter, it's the writer's blog. BYE!!!

Sushi Anyone???

I was reading Seriously, So Blessed! and clicked on an ad on the side of the blog. That took me to the Krazy Coupon Lady, and as I was reading through her recent posts I found THIS ONE. I went to, entered my zip code and it brought up a few restaurants, one of them being Yapona Japanese Cuisine and Sushi Bar. Josh really like this place, so I added one $25 dollar gift certificate to my cart, entered the secret code (MOM), and it only cost me FIVE DOLLARS! Whose up for sushi?
