Buttercups, Baseball and Bloodtests

The girls have been very busy. Piano Recital, Swim Team, Last days of school with Field Day and other fun things and today was their Ballet Recital. They were beautiful "Buttercups" in Alice and Wonderland. It was a great show, Anderson was moderately quiet during the show - perhaps helped by the 10 laps Stan sent him on up and down the steep stairs at the recital hall. Whit was a little squeaky but no major fuss, he got lots of attention as usual! He is such a cutie. It has been an action packed last few weeks.

This video is from their dress rehearsal - I was able to get closer then than during the real thing.
It's sweet because both of the girls were in the same dance and right next to each other.

Here are their piano recitals. Lexi played a 7 page piece of music called a Sonatina. Both the girls got nerves this year at their recitals. But, they stuck with their music and it all was beautiful.

These are pictures of them playing some of their music on the pipe organ at the Church. They really enjoy doing that when Mr. Jay lets them.

Some of you know that we have been having some medical issues with Whit. They have taken so much of his blood I don't see how he can replenish it fast enough. He has been poked and prodded so much since he was born it has been really upsetting. Here are some pictures of a test where they injected him with RADIATION. In the end, the test didn't work. Two words for these pictures - Heart. Breaking. The guy held his head in this position for FIFTEEN minutes.

Moving on, here is my naked baby helping me cook! And here he is smiling at Lexi. He has super sweet smiles and he laughs in his sleep. We all love him so much it's just beyond words.

Anderson has started playing T-ball and he is loving. it. It has been soo hot during practices and games, but Stan has been helping out a lot with this activity, it's been very nice! Anderson is pretty good - he is catching the ball and throwing it where it needs to go. And he looves to whack it too!!

We are all so happy it's officially summer! Yay, my babies are HOME!
