Twinkle Toes

Sunday, Sydney asked me to come in to her room and she was going to do a show for me. She asked me to sit in her "baby" recliner, which I squeezed in to. She then did a ballet performance for me on the "stage" - her bed! Here are a few pics:

She is taking ballet, tap, and hip-hop now! She'll have her spring recital in early June. We just found out that she has a solo during the hiphop dance!!!! Let's just say she doesn't take after her dad in the dancing department! It has been great for her, I like to watch her do the hip hop the best but I am pretty sure that she likes ballet the best.
Well we found out about a month ago that Casey will be going to Germany for work for the month of June. I thought about going for a few days but we decided we'll just have to go when we will both be able to enjoy it for a lengthy stay - Sorry to my girlfriends Lyndsey and Melissa who live there. So everyone be thinking about me attempting to be a single parent for that month!!

Funny Photo Of The Week:

This is Sampson, our younger dog. This is exactly what he does most of the time that he is awake. Sorry, I do not like Sampson. He is VERY needy and has to be with someone at all times. He won't even go the the bathroom outside by himself. He has to go get Roxy, my sweet girl, to go with him. The worst part about it all is that I am allergic to Sampson, but not to Roxy (they are both boxers though, vet says that this is normal). Because he is so needy, he stands next to my legs and rubs up against me all the time, which then makes me break out in all these very itchy bumps. This also means I cannot love on him very good either, so there is no emotional connection. Casey and Sydney make up for me though. Recently, Syd had trouble sleeping through the night, and Sampson too. They usually wake me up at least one time a piece during the night. I had a BRILLIANT idea, why not kill two birds with one stone and see if Samps can sleep with Sydney!! What do ya know, it has been a week and I haven't been awoken one time!! I am against the animals on the furniture and esp the beds, but I will do alot for my sleep, this is a good sacrifice!!

This is our new dental office!! I have been with this practice for 8 years almost. We have grown so much. When I first started there was just 4 of us and our office was a 1100 square foot converted old house in the not so good part of town. Now there are 13 of us and we are in a 6000 square foot BEAUTIFUL office!! I am very proud of it. We have 11 ops, flat screens above all dental chairs, a waterwall in the reception area.......need I say more!!!

My First Post!!!

Well I am going to try this blogging thing. I try to keep up with Kacy and Cassie's blogs and would love to try to do this. I need a tutorial though!!
I guess I need to update everyone about recent events before I add new ones:

Our Trip To DisneyWorld March 4-11, 2009

This is Sydney at the airport. She had way too much downtime on airplanes, so now she was getting into trouble. I thought I would take pictures of her to keep her out of trouble. This is her modeling:

Casey wasn't exactly thrilled to go to Disney, well not like me.... So, I thought I would surprise him on our anniversary with Atlanta Braves/New York Yankees spring training tickets at Disneyworld. He did get a little more excited.

Then we we're off to the Magic Kingdom. P.S. Sydney didn't know that we we're going to Disneyworld. She noticed all of the Mickey Mouse decor but never put two and two together. I thought she would realize where we were when we drove through the Magic Kingdom Archway, but NO!! We got on the trolley to take us to the monorail. She noticed the bushes cut like Mickey and Minnie but still didn't realize. We had to show her this castle that was off in the distance accross the lake and ask her what the was..... She then jumped up and down!! She was SO happy!!

Sydney's favorite ride at DW was the teacups.

I believe we rode them like 5 times!! The mouse
in the center teapot that peeks out of the lid
made her laugh EVERY time we rode it!!
We were very blessed to get to go to Disney!! We had meals with all the characters. Our favorite character meal was the BBQ with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip, and Dale. It was great, they let the kids go wild and dance with the characters. Believe me it was probably the worst character job at WDW, b/c those little devils went crazy. It is a disney characters nightmare i am sure. It probably pays the best though!!!


Sydney had the chance to dress up like a princess while at disney. She chose Cinderella, her favorite princess. A fairy godmother in training did Syd's hair, makeup and nails. She loved it, and wouldn't you know she didn't cry or scream one time while she had her hair done, unlike when I do it!!! After her princess makeover, we had dinner with the mice and the fairy godmother in Cindy's castle, every little girls dream!!! She got to meet Cinderella - she was STARSTRUCK!!!! Here are a few pics:

Well I will try to post at least one day a week. Next time will be more current stuff!!!
Love, Angela
