Locks of Love

Morgan decided she wanted to donate her hair again. She had well over 10 inches cut off Tuesday. Here are before and after pictures! I'm so proud of her.

Dancin' Queen

After coming home from school early on Friday with a fever, I was worried that Morgan would be sick and not be able to dance at her recital. Luckily, a little motrin, some quiet time and a good night's sleep had her all ready to go.

This was taken onstage (without my flash, I really need to get a tripod!), so it's a bit blurry. They danced to "A Perfect Day" from the movie 27 Dresses.

I took this before we left yesterday afternoon, in the garden. This was her tap costume. They danced to "Swing on a Star." I think these costumes showed up the best on stage. She's such a ham :)

Mamma Mia!

Here we go again ;)

Morgan's first costume is for jazz. They are dancing to Mamma Mia, the version by the A-Teens. I can't believe how much older she looks...Where did my baby go?

Equipment Managers

The boys felt the need to check out the safety of Morgan's equipment, from inside the bag.

Starting Pitcher (again!)

Getting a sense of deja vu? Morgan was picked again to be starting pitcher this year. I'm very very proud of her. Unfortunately, she was also the first girl to strike out. She definitely won't be the last!

We got a new kitty last week. "Buddy" showed up in our backyard on Wednesday night. We were out and when we came home, he came running over and practically leaped into Dan's arms. He was purring and rubbing against us and tried to follow us in. Of course, we fed him...Got up on Thursday morning and he was still there and crying like mad to be let in. I got anxious about him being outside because we live on a REALLY busy street.

I tucked him away in my bedroom on Thursday, and he spent the day there. We brought him to the vet to see if he had a micro chip...I called several vets and the humane societies to see if anyone had reported a missing cat matching his description and no one had...I called the neighbors to make sure he wasn't any of theirs...I posted on Craigslist and another website...No responses...

So, Dan took him to the vet on Friday afternoon to get him tested for kitty leukemia and kitty HIV. He was clean, so we let him into the "general population" with the other two. So far, Meezer seems to be doing best with him. Alley doesn't like him, but Alley doesn't like anyone, so that's just typical Alley behavior.

I keep reminding Morgan that his owners may still show up, but she's already attached, and really, so are Dan and I. He's incredibly friendly, and he's very well taken care of, so I know he's someone's pet.

Dan named him "Buddy" but every time I say his name, I sing this...

I really like Goliath, or even Bubba, but Buddy is driving me crazy! I can't stop singing that stupid commercial!

Here's the boy.

Brownies go Scrapbooking

We took our Brownie troop to A Time for Memories yesterday to earn their Scrapbooking Try-it. Some of the girls were a little bored, i.e., the ones who's moms scrapbook, but I think they had a good time when all was said and done. Here's my little monkey working on her page (after a good crying jag because the woman running the "class" made an example of her by saying "that's how you DON'T use adhesive..." Oy, I could have clocked her!).

Everyone LOVES Girl Scout Cookies!

The Prince of the house got a new Kitty Condo from all the empty girl scout cookie boxes. He's one happy happy boy!

Hippie Day, Man

The students voted and Hippie Day won for Spirit Day. Do you think they knew what they were voting for?
