Twinkle toes and new apparel.

Ok, first of all, Chick started dance classes!  I'm definitely more excited than she is.  One of those "living-vicariously-though-your-children" sort of things.  One of those "I'm-destined-to-be-a-stage-mom" things.  Anyhow, it's ballet for 3.5 - 5 year olds.  As in pre-pre-ballet.  But it's so cute, and she did a great job at her first class.

After Dance class the kids and I went up to visit my sister, who had a friend that was liquidating all of her MASSIVE supply of kids clothes.  I got so many cute things!  I tried to not look at the kids' current sizes, but I did get some things for them to wear now.  But it's mostly grow into stuff.  Seriously, I think I completely outfitted Moose from 2t-4t (I already had up to 2t).  And Chick is set for probably the next 2 years.  I got about 5 garbage bags full.  Plus some baby food and diapers for Moose.  A winter coat for each child, as well as a rain coat for each.  Tap shoes, leotards, 18 pairs of shoes & as many pairs of jammies.  Thank you Becky!

Here are the girls in some of their new finery.  Chick is wearing a new sweater, skirt, and tights.  Monkey is wearing a new dress and socks.

And I came home to find that HH had worked on some projects.  What a great day!
