15 years am I getting old

15 years ago today my high school graduation ceremony was held. I cannot believe that it has really been that long. Now if that don't make you feel old I don't know what does.

No more teachers, no more books

Well today was the last day of school and I am shocked at just how much it affected me. Madeline will no longer be attending this school, moving on up to the district's other elementary school. Lillian graduated from pre K. She will be gone all day next year as she starts kindergarten. Both kids gone all day long, now that will be a huge change for me. My babies are growing up.

making a list...checking it twice

Gonna take a trip to someplace nice.

I am in full pre packing mode now. Making lists of what we'll need, digging out the suitcases. Yes I know that I have time but I am one of those people who likes to be all packed a week before hand, no last minute packing frenzies here. I already got most of the items on hand, thank you Sam's Club.

I also got to think of something to get the girls teachers for their end of the year gifts. June 23 cannot come soon enough if you ask me. No more fighting to get the girls to bed early. Now that it is light out at their bed time they just don't want to go to bed. Can't blame them I was the same way.

Oh Oh Uh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Uh Oh, the right stuff

Yesterday was a blast, the girls dance recital in the early afternoon where they both did an awesome job, (see the previous posting for the youtube videos). People were coming up to me during intermission & after the recital telling me how well the girls did, How impressed they were with Madeline's ballet number, how well Lilly did for her first time. I am so very proud of them.

Then yesterday evening I went to the NKOTB concert with my friend Janet. Thanks to some drunk chicks that were sitting behind us trying to steal our seats when we got up to get a drink spilling beer on Janet and their piss poor attitude afterwards we got upgraded for the first row in the 300 far right section to 8th row center aisle seats!

Check out some pics if you are interested.

Recital rehersal videos

It is one of my favorite dancing days! The rehersal where I can take video and pics! Of course I had to share them with all of my family, friends, and the cyber world. 2009 is sure to be a year to remember with Lillian's first recital ever and Madeline's debut into the world of ballet. (She loves ballet.) I hope that you all enjoy these as much as I did. I cannot wait until the recital tomorrow. Lilly has already told us that she expects flowers afterwards, we can't disappoint her.

Lillian's debut in the dancing world.

Madeline's debut as a ballerina. I am so proudof her I think she did a amazing job.

It is party time

We had Lillian's 5th birtyday party this afternoon at the Rat's Place aka Chuck E Cheese's. Everyone had a blast and she got such wonderful gifts. Lots of summer clothes which she was totally thrilled about. Yes my 5 year old is a clothes horse and a shoe fanatic. People didn't believe me when I told them that she wanted clothes for her birthday, not many kids do. I can't believe that we spent four and half hours there. Even more surprised that we didn't have to buy extra tokens.

And a surprise hit of a gift was this...

Yes that is a box of Special K breakfast cereal. Lilly loves it and I told y sister as a "joke" she should buy a box and wrap it up for her. Well she did and Lilly loved it as you can see. She gave a squeal of glee and hugged the box. My silly Lilly.
