Dance Recital

Emmy and Paige (unfortunately not pictured....bad aunt)
were in their annual dance recital.
They were so good...and cute!
We had fun watching them and even more entertaining was Aurah pole dancing in the aisle.
I brought both the girls flowers to make them feel special.
They probably died the next day but hey?
It's the thought that counts right??

Preschool Graduation

Happy Day for these two cuties!
Aurah and Emmy had their preschool graduation.
And, it's actually Aurah's LAST preschool day before kindergarten next year!
They were so stinkin cute.
And funny.  Emmy was yawning.....and Aurah seemed more interested in her little boyfriend Carson.
I brought them mini Winchell sprinkled donuts.
And a sucker for Hadley of course.
So proud of these little girls.
And where in the heck does the time go???

My mom is better than your mom

Well, I know alot of you have great moms,
I think my mom is amazing, beautiful, and talented!
She has taught me how to serve others.
How to love unconditionally.
and the list goes on and on and on........
I am so lucky to have the parents and siblings I do.

Happy Mothers Day 2012

and a flashback from 1977 

Pinewood Derby

That time of year again!
Where Dave helps a little with the car
but Hayley basically builds the car.
and paints it.
but totally makes dane get involved.
So cute.
So, my parents and I went to go check it out!
Although Dane didn't win, he got some kind of award
and we had a blast watching all the other cars!
I love my family!

Brae Lizzie is here!

April 24, 2012
Brae Lizzie Christensen
8 pounds 3 ounces
she is a cutie pie.

I was SO honored and blessed that Drew and Heather allowed me to come in and watch this little miracle be born.  I've had the opportunity to see 6 births now! I am so thankful to them.  It is the most awesome thing and I love all these little babies so dang much!
So, thank you!!!
The delivery went pretty smooth I think.
Maybe Heather should clarify. :)
But once we got to see her beautiful face,,,,it was all worth it!
She didn't cry for the longest time and they were really worried about her.
There was a slight chance they were going to have to take her to NICU.
But, after tugging all over her and basically slapping the hell out of her ( i was going to kill that nurse)
she finally cried. 
and it's the sweetest little cry i have ever heard.
I love you sweet baby brae.

For those of you who know.....i like to celebrate my birthday for like a month.
This year was a little different. 
Schedules, previous committments, yada yada yada....
I only really got to celebrate twice.
But it was a great day!
And, yes.....so much of it revolved around food!
Especially my FAVORITE dessert.
Beignets from Grand Lux.
Until next year.
