Project 12..last one.. Made it :)

This is the second year that I participated in the Clickin Moms Project 12 with the “Fabulous group Four” ladies :). I am so proud of myself and our group for finishing this year! It has been a great challenge and fantastically headed up by Holly, thank you so much for your hard work!

The final theme was “put yourself in the picture” so I have a couple pix of me to share to round out the year!

The first image shows me working with the girls to make our New Year’s Eve masks and the second image shows me on New Year’s day waiting for my crazy husband to take his Polar Bear plunge into the ocean πŸ™‚

Pointe It!

Oldest has done ballet off and on for several years. She has also managed to do swimming, soccer, theater, choir, orchestra, piano, cheer, basketball, volleyball, and the list goes on!

For the past two years she has really focused in on ballet, however at her previous dance studio they told her she was to old to learn to dance on pointe…disheartened to say the least, she quit dancing to pursue other interests.

Since dancing on pointe as a ballerina has been a dream for her, she decided to try again, this time at a new studio. After dancing a foundation class for a year, this summer she is finally beginning pointe!

Oldest-pointe-shoes-2013To say she is excited would be an understatement, even Youngest wants to try the shoes out …for about 10 seconds! Let the painful pointe begin lol! πŸ˜€
