Dance Recital 2008

Last Saturday was my 3rd dance recital since living here in Oklahoma.

To see last years and the year before click here and here.

Haven wanted to stay with me. Very similar to my first year when both Haven and Gibson stood up front with me. (Elam was there too since I was pregnant)
So, out of 3 dance recitals I've been pregnant twice! Not sure what that says about me, but any way.......

I had some girls I had danced with in April at a women's retreat come and dance. Two of them are going to teach for me in the Fall.


Haven had a verse to say before her SUPER HERO dance.

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Gibson and Haven both danced in the SUPERSTAR dance. Doesn't he look cool?! He was actually pretty sick and had some Tylenol just before.


We did a silly "Itsy Bitsy Spider" dance. Do you see the middle picture on the top row?!?!?! Look how high Gibson is Jumping and how pointed his toes are!


Gibson and Haven received special trophies for being second year students. (Not like they have a choice in the matter) :)


Our last dance was to the song "Cha Cha Slide." It's a party dance song played at weddings and other places. We've been playing it at home and Elam really likes it. I could tell he wanted to go dance, so I let him.


He pretty much stole the show!!! Andrew was videoing for me and you can tell on this one part that he is cracking up because the video camera is shaking!


Haven and I got flowers from Andrew and Gibson got a small balloon. The two cute girls are "special" friends of Gibson. (Truthfully, they both like Gibson and he likes them) Anna, the one in the yellow actually gave Gibson her phone number the other day. We think he likes Cambell more though!

such progress!!

Friday was the end of Elam's 4th week of Infant Swimming Resource. He has had amazing improvement.

Mrs. Brandi says he needs to finish this week and next week and then he will graduate.






He's been working on floating for a while. He HATES it, but is just now finally getting it.





You can tell by her face that she is surprised and impressed because he is finally floating on his own.
He isn't very still yet, but hopefully he will get there.


Now we work on him swimming and then floating and then swimming.
This way, if he falls in water he will swim and float till he finds a way out.



He looks like he is ready to go, but actually he really likes it there and wants to stay a play.

Our Wii family

Andrew has wanted a Wii since before Christmas. We had no idea how hard it would be to fine one. Our friends Sam and Amanda were nice enough to let us borrow theirs for the last month or so. We enjoyed playing it, but still wanted one of our own. Well, another good friend of ours knew we were looking for one and found some at Sams. (She's also a faithful reader) Hi Jana!
Anyway, we've had it for almost a week and one of the funnest things we have done is create our Mii characters.
Once Andrew finished our family he went on to do Grandma Littleton, Grani and Papa.

For those of you who know what us Littletons look like, see if you can figure out who is who.

If not, you can check out the video.



A picture of Grandma playing a Wii can be seen on Papa's blog right here.
Pictures of Papa and Grani can also be seen there, but here's a good one.
