Ready to Dance....


So Rhys had Dance photos yesterday at McMasters Studio...so many little dancers done up to the nines in beautiful costumes, tons of make-up and fake hair galore!
She loved the make-up and dressing up for photos but I am just not sure that I will ever be the "DANCE MOM" with garment bags, make-up cases and hair pieces.

Kate's Post on Budgets...a must read!

I loved Kate's post!!!! Check her out on my list of fav's to visit.

I just had a discussion with a friend about working part-time or staying at home...my response "not with the lifestyle we are used of living" and now I read Kate's post and feel like it could be done (with serious life changes).

Once I graduated school and started paying off loans I soon realized that I would be working for a long time (the joys of going to school in the USA when our dollar was worth 54 cents) but when it is paid off we could probably afford for me to work part-time.

I must admit that I do waste money! I love designer jeans and starbucks chai tea! both crazy expensive...but my new years resolution has been to take my lunch to work (a savings of $250 plus dollars a month)! I also buy my girls millions of things they don't need (especially whil shopping at Superstore)!!! I used to spend crazy amounts of scrapbook supplies and now have a stash the size of Michaels! All things I don't need, but like and want.

Just this week while shopping with Rhys I told her that she could pick one grocery treat (this was hard to do) she must have changed her mind a million times!!! "I want mini-eggs"..."I want cookies instead of mini eggs"..."I want ice-cream instead of cookies". This was hard, but I was so impressed when she said in the truck "maybe next time I will pick ice-cream". I think that too many times we give kids (and ourselves) everything we want instead of what we need.

The more I type the more I realze the things that could change.

What could you change to save a little money???


I really need to talk to Kate more about a budget!
She amazes me!!!! As do all families that can make it on one salary or have a wife work part-time!!

Disney Trip

We had an amazing time at Disney world.
Our favorite part was the lunch at Cinderella's Castle.
We were fortunate to have one of the last lunch reservations and therefor we were able to spend about 15 minutes with Cinderella when no other visitors were around.
Kenadi fell in love with "rella" as she called her and spent time talking to her, dancing with her, hugging her, and loving her. Cinderella was amazing with Kenadi and it was a moment I will never forget!
She also danced with the other little girls (my nieces) and taught them some princess etiquette. What an amazing time!

We also saw Snow White, Jasmine, Belle, Aurua and Prince Charming.

It was a wonderful lunch with great food and wonderful memories.





I have so many more photos to show you and send to blacks so that I can scrapbook my little heart out!
I promise to post more soon.

Happy New Year!!!
