Dance Review

The dance year has come to an end. This was Shelby's first year in dance, she did so good and loved every minute. She asks weekly when she gets to go back to dance. Sydney is getting better every year. We are so proud of both girls for danceing their hearts out!

So, I am a little late, Easter was 2 months ago and I am just getting these uploaded. I think this we was the year of the Easter Egg Hunts. The kids had 3! We went to Garland's on Saturday, it was cold but there wasn't snow on the ground like last year. Preston got the most eggs and candy. This was his last year in the "baby" section next year he gets to go to the big kids section. My kids are growing too fast.

Preston coloring Easter Eggs. We painted them this year instead of dyeing them. They turned out great.

The finished product!

LeAnn, Reba, & George Concert

In April Shaun and I went to the George & Reba Concert. This was the first time I had ever seen either one in concert. We thought we better go before ol'e George retires and stops doing concerts. It was great. Shaun had never eaten at PF Changs so we went there for dinner then walked over to the concert.

Miss LeAnn Womack opened, she was great, she is just a little thing only about 5'2'' and wore like 6" heels walking around signing. I don't know how she did it.

Next this wonderful lady came out and entertained us. I hope to go to her concert again next time she comes. Very entertaining. I like going to these older singers concerts because they actually sound the same in concert as they do on the radio and their cd's. Come concerts you go to and they don't even sound the same.
Melissa Pederman came out almost to the end of Reba's show and did a little comdey act with Reba. It was so funny, Shaun and I couldn't stop laughing. For those of you that don't know her she is a comedian that started on the "Reba" show with Reba, she was her ex-husband's wife. Melissa is also the host of the Singing Bee.

Then last but not least, this wonderful man came out. I do have to say he has aged a bit. But he is still pretty handsome. Sings just as good as ever. He did a lot of his older songs whichI liked.

We stayed at the Hilton down there so we didn't have to drive home late. I was glad because we didn't get out of the concert until midnight. When we got out it was pouring down rain. Good thing I put my umbrella in my purse as we walked out of the hotel room. It would have been a misreable walk to the hotel if we hadn't of had it.

I'm sitting here eating some fresh pineaple and loving it. Thanks to my handy pineapple wedger (cuts and cores it all at once), it makes eating fresh so much better, and a lot less easier. I think I will buy fresh pineapple more often. I read today somewhere in internet land that the way to know if a pineapple is fresh, is to pull the smallest leaf at the top of the pineapple, if it comes out then it is ready for cut'n.

This cute little picture of the pineapple girl makes me want to go to Hawaii, never been but would love to go someday. My hubby has no desire, anyone want to come with me??
