caught up in all these lights and cameras

I was playing around with a new lens, and my little ragamuffins were sweet enough to pose for me.

rollin' on 20

So, David and I just celebrated our 20-year dating anniversary in January. I was looking for our old high school pictures, and I came across this note I wrote to one of our best friends. Thank goodness she encouraged me to ask him to the dance, because he said yes and then asked me to be his girlfriend the next day. 
He had no idea that I had the note, so it was a fun surprise when he came home on our anniversary and I told him there was a note for him on the fridge. 

Happy anniversary, my love.

pyramid scheme

We bought this German pyramid for Daddy last Christmas, and I made sure to get some pics this year. Yes, he's always wanted one because of Christmas Vacation.

Ah, my little actress. She wasn't wanting to participate with pictures, so I asked her to look at it like she's amazed...haha. This kid. I think Winston actually was a little amazed.

"Dance me, Daddy!"

We have this cute book from Big Daddy and Bebe called "Dance me, Daddy!" So it was very cute when Birdie's school held its first-ever daddy/daughter dance this past weekend and these two did get to dance together. They were both so excited and had a blast.
Birdie wants to re-do the pictures because this one doesn't show how fluffy her dress is.

sugar plum fairies

I forgot to post about our Nutracker adventure this year. It's one of Birdie's Christmas gifts, and she's decided she wants to keep the tradition going. Since it was our second time, Birdie leaned over and whispered to me, "This is all making sense now."

Miss Kristal and cutie pie Kate went with us this year. The girls had a blast.

We were lucky enough to get a special backstage tour after the show. It was so beautiful! I'm still kicking myself over not bringing my good camera, but here are a few phone pics.

Here's Birdie raising and lowering the backdrops.
