Last week.....

Last week was a crazy, busy one. On Thursday, the Fort Worth Zoo came to the preschool. I decided to stay and take pictures. The children were hilarious! The up close and personal experience with the animals was so cool. The picture below is showing just how much Camille cared about me being there. Zilch!

This little penguin got within 1 foot of the children. He was cute.
This is Olivia in the middle of saying "touch it". She wanted to touch all the animals. I told her they would bite her. So she kept saying "bite you".

This is Presley. If you know her, you know that she loves to scream with excitement. She would squeal with delight at all the animals and actually reach out to try to touch them. It was adorable.

The picture below is when Olivia discovered I was there. She is plotting her escape from the line.

This is when she had no idea I was there.

One night, Brandon decided to put on one of Camille's sleep shirts that was given to her by my sister. MCS stands for Midland Christian School.

Last Monday was parents day at dance. Camille is doing ballet here. You may be wondering why she doesn't have ballet shoes on. Well, her recital is coming up and her class will not be wearing ballet shoes in the show since the will be Indian girls. Notice that every girl in her class is blonde headed and blue eyed. Funny.

Doing some tap. Heal, heal, heal....

Bar exercises.

Cheese for dance!

7 random things about me.

Ok, I am doing it. I was tagged by Andrea to tell 7 random facts about me.

1. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from ACU when I was nine months pregnant with Camille.

2. I love to clean my children's ears. I literally get goosebumps when I see a good piece of wax in their ears.

3. I played the harp for 7 years growing up. I own a small harp that is collecting dust in the corner of my bedroom. Don't ask me to play now, I would need to practice.

4. I am borderline psycho about Tornadoes. I was in 5 tornadoes in one day. I get so scared when there is a thunderstorm that I literally want to hide under the bed. I have nightmares about them all the time.

5. I still have daydreams that I am the President of the United States.

6. I was voted most flirtatious in high school. I was so embarrassed by it, that I totally quit flirting.

7. I am a pretty good water skier. I learned when I was like 5 years old. I like to do it once a year.

Andrea- I don't know seven people to tag that haven't already been tagged.

We have had a busy couple of weeks! Last Saturday we went to a great birthday party. Below are pictures of Camille bottle feeding a baby pig.

OOOOHHHH... What is happening here?

Is that Barbie as Mariposa or Camille Caroline Blake? Hmmm.....
That same day, Carter Holmes arrived a little early. I was so overwhelmed by his cuteness that I forgot to take pictures of him, but here is a pic of Shara and Presley. She is going to be a great big sister!!!

On Monday we went to the Grapevine Botanical Gardens. It was a nice little trip.

I was trying to be a photographer. Look at the little angel touching the flower poof.

The true silly side came out.

Olivia had to get a sniff in, I have to tell you that everytime she smells a flower, she acts like she is
sneezing. She says "Aaaaachoooo".

So sweet!

Sister Love.

These days I am having a little trouble getting a smile out of Camille. She is too busy trying to tell me something.

Trying to get all the kiddos to pose.

O Olivia! Don't pick the flowers! Camille told her that if she acted bad Mr. Keller will kick her out of Keller. Be careful Olivia. (Even though we were in Grapevine.)
