Bon soir!

Favorite thing I watched this week

AM had her very first dance recital this week. She did great, and had so much fun. The performance was at the high school on the stage, which is huge. Additionally, there were probably 300 people in the audience (not exaggerating!). Quite a big debut for a 3 1/2 year old!

In her seat, getting ready for the performance...

Here's a good shot of her on the stage (thanks to my mother-in-law!). Their flags say "Bon Soir." It was a French theme, and her group was the opening act, so they were properly greeting everyone with a "good evening."

And taking a bow...

And if you need to see the entire performance (don't worry, it's only about 2.5 minutes!)...

On a completely different note...

I saw Bridesmaids last weekend, and it is hilarious. When Entertainment Weekly gives a movie (a comedy, at that) an A, it has to be good. I laughed out loud, and will watch it again. The airplane scenes alone are worth the ticket price. Kristen Wiig is our new...Tina Fey? Lucille Ball? Oh, whatever, she's just funny.

Otto is 1!

Favorite things I saw this week

Baby Otto is 1! He had a family birthday dinner last week. He loved his cake and his new Cozy Coupe. The video shows how he has figured out how to honk the horn...not in the traditional way.

Also this week, AM had her Mother's Day performance at school. They sang 5 songs (with hand motions!), "read" music, did the Hokey Pokey in Spanish, and did the Chicken Dance. It was quite a production! Hopefully it will get her warmed up for the dance recital next week.
