Tessa's 2016 Spring Recital

Another year of dance comes to a close - it was a big year for Tess as she is getting more interested in dance and taking more classes at Carlsbad Performing Arts.  This is her 3rd year performing in this recital.  The academy enrolls kids from kindergarten to seniors in high school.  Every year they acknowledge the seniors showing pictures of their progression through dance over the years.... I can't help but realize how fast it will go by and we will be watching Tess up there as a senior doing her last recital.  I hope Tess continues and hope the academy will continue to be the excellent center it is.

Tess did three performances this year, Ballet - The Music Box Dancer (which was a song that I remember as a kid listening to with Dee Dee) Tap - Lips Are Movin' and Jazz - Dear Future Husband.
Here they are:






Finn's Big Hit T-Ball

Camp out at the new old house

The movers had to be pushed but we wanted to stay in the house.   So we brought down some mattresses and had a camp in.

Tessa's 8th Birthday

This year we decided to team up with her friend Aryana to have a joint birthday party. Aryana's birthday is on the 17th. Tess actually has two other good friends who are on the 15th with her (Mylie - from soccer and her "bff" Haley)

Here is some video from the night of her actual birthday - the neighbors (Ella, Evan and Ethan came over for some brownies). We had take-out PF Changs by request (Tess didn't want to eat at the restaurant - insisted on eating in)
Here is video from the joint party

Twas The Night Before Christmas

A little peek into the night before Christmas, 2015.

Finn's first Lego build

What is more impressive is that Finn was missing pieces so he had to find other pieces to improvise.
