Lola is a little Singer!

Color me happy, my little baby girl is quite the entertainer. So many times throughout the day I’ll find her throwing her arms wide and up to the sky, while she sings long notes and spins in a circle (very Julie Andrew’s Sound of Music like).

Singing was such a huge part of my life as a child, I took lessons from the best voice coach Kathleen Taylor for several years. I joined every choir, every performance that I could, I performed in a Musical Event called “Music is My Life” at the Jubilee Auditorium when I was 8 and it was an amazing experience to be a part of. I still sing (under the radar), but I have learned that my nerves limit my performance ability, so I stick to singing in the shower or in my car now. I’ve always hoped that my children would love music, and enjoy singing particularly. Now it’s fun to see my baby girl so into the wild performance of song right before my eyes.

I hope to capture some video of Lola doing her singing thing to share, it’s just too cute for words! What’s next on the horizon??? Dance classes for baby girl, I can’t think of anything cuter than seeing her dance in a ballet class. These next few years are going to be FUN!!!!!

Dress, Haircuts and Ski Hills

IMG_1632 Yesterday Lola wore one of her new dresses from Christmas. Thanks to Nathan’s Mom for this fun vibrant dress, I love it and so does Lola. In fact the perfect headband to go with it was picked out by Lola herself, who reached into the basket and placed it happily on her head. That girls knows her fashion! I was like…”GO GIRL!!” Nothing like dressing to impress when you’re heading downtown, we were the HIT of the car service department yesterday.

IMG_1607 My handsome little men showing off their new hairdo’s! Man are these kids huge now or am I crazy?! I can’t believe my little boys are looking more and more like young men.

By the way, I’m really loving using my favorite apps on my iPhone right now - Instagram and Camera+ they are the best for capturing life’s everyday moments when I don’t have my DSLR along for the ride. Trying desperately to capture a shot of my Noah today, but the boy is a blur when it comes to pics right now. He’s always moving.

Dylan (Tavis) is out on the ski hill today, snowboarding with a group of friends – lucky teenager! I wish I had pictures of that.
