Tasty Truffles & Pastry Chefs

The girls had their recital yesterday and they were both just cute as can be. Really want to bow out of Ballet for next year. But the recital is "how they get'cha!" They were precious.

Welcome to the CandyLand Express (theme for the ballet). I was able to record their Dress Rehearsal... Lexi is a little harder to see... :(

Meet the Pastry Chef's

Meet the "Tasty Truffles" LOOK MIDDLE BACK ROW

We are at a Classical Ballet place and for the younger girls they have the rehearsal and recital all in the same day. Anyway, in between, they play and hang out... Here they are with a friend from school. They had a good day playing and dancing....

#1 Lexi and the mean ants

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Lexi and one day she moved to a new house and they had lived there [Mom, how long have we lived here?] 2 years before there was like a million ants in her house so the Terminix guy came inside to take the ants away and Lexi kept on saying, yucky!

#2 The broken violin

Once upon a time there was a girl named Ainsley and her brother named Anderson [Lexi, we're leaving, let's go!] ....

[Anders] Pirate Ship, Treasure Chest, Eye Patch for me?
[Mom] Huh?
[Anders] What?
[Mom] Are you saying you want an eye patch? And it would be in a Treasure Chest?
[Anders] Yeah, on a Pirate Ship.

He woke up the other day....
[Anders] Pirate Ships are coming in the house.
[Mom] Did you have a dream?
[Anders] Yeah.
[Mom] Pirate's were coming in the house?
[Anders] No, Pirate Ships were coming in the house.

[Anders] Why don't I have a ship? Mommy, I want a big ship.
[Mom] Buddy, you have a big ship in the playroom.
[Anders] Oh yeah.

[Anders] Can I watch a Pirate Show? Are there any more Pirate shows?

[Anders] Mom, I'm going to hunt Pirates and Monsters.

[Anders] Mom, why don't I have a dubdope like a Pirate?
[Mom] You broke it.
[Anders] Oh yeah. Why don't I have another one?

[Anders] Mom, I like cannon balls. Why don't I have any?
