The Duet

We have an amazing grandpa who is also our piano teacher. He comes to the house, and teaches my girls. We're so lucky!! We're working on a duet for the big recital with cousins!

Happy Halloween

Today Rocked!!! I'm so tired I could die.
Boy surprised us with tickets to Thriller! It was SO COOL! Our seats were fantastic, and the dancing was just amazing!

#3 wasn't into the zombies at all. She was totally in tears when they were trying get her!
Trick or Treating was fun, and cold, and fun and cold! We had, a gypsie, the Red Queen, and a peacock, and a coldy Mom and dad!

We got to meet up with cousins, that makes everything more fun!

Sorting her loot!

We Believe

Today was cold and wet, so the girls made fairy houses. #3 in particular knows without question that she will have a best friend that is a fairy some day.

She prays for it, googles it (how to find a fairy friend), reads up on it, and lives for it.

She could barely go to bed tonight just knowing that in the morning there would be either a fairy in her house, or traces that they had been there.

Love my girls!

I love summer all too much. We got a zoo pass this year. Our zoo isn't as depressing as it used to be. I actually quite like the zoo. My kids got to go with their favorite ever people on the planet! #1 was at 5th grade camp. More on that later.

There were totally animals too, but who wants to see pictures of animals?


The Ekker Girls are dancers. We dance at this really amazing studio that I love!! We put on a full production ballet every year, and every year I love my studio more and more. This year, the ballet was Coppelia. I love the ballet, and I really love the music.

This little was a village girl. I didn't get photos of her dancing because she is in my class, so I was dancing at the same time that she was. Bummer, because she was oh-so-adorable.

Little #2 was a Story Teller. Act 1 dance 1. She started the whole show!

#3 was a Russian Doll, and a Baker at the wedding. She's getting so good. She's a full foot shorter than everyone else in her class. Oh well.
