Kayci's Talent Show Performance

Kayci recently performed in the Krause Elementary talent show with her friend, Kate. They did the "Hairspray" dance from their portion of the Junior Maifest coronation, and they did a great job!

Check it out:


#2 is so close to mastering #2...we're pretty stoked around here. :)

And just for fun, a flashback to last month's accomplishment:

Scenes from a Lunch

Yesterday was my sister, Celena's, 30th birthday, so my dad threw a surprise lunch for her at Fadi's - a Mediterranean restaurant in Houston. I'm pretty sure everyone had a good time, and I'm certain we all left very full. These are some photos I took at the lunch:

Happy birthday, Nina!

Weapin' Wizards!*

So this is where the story ended.  Let's go back to the beginning...
It was a lovely day at Antique Rose Emporium with Marsha and Grandma.  The kids were having a blast roaming around chasing lizards and just being kids. 

Then we noticed a bright green lizard on a statue next to where Grandma was sitting.  So,

Daddy caught it to give the kids a close-up look.  He's the best!

See here, kids, this is how you hold a lizard safely.

Kayci wants to hold it,

so of course, Noble wants to hold it, too.  

Wow, Bubby--great job!

What a nice lizard, laying there so nicely.

He lets Noble pet him.  

And Noble gets comfortable.

Maybe too comfortable.  It takes Noble a second to realize that the lizard has, in fact, clamped down on his finger.  Until Mommy gasps.  And then, all heck breaks loose.

*Disclaimer:  No Nobles were harmed in the making of the blog post.
