the anatomy of a cartwheel

thank you Vickie for these action shots!

Oh to be a fly on the wall..........

On Thursday night the girls participated in their very first Gala at Leading Edge Gymnastics.  This set of snapshots was taken from across the gym while the girls were waiting to take their place on the floor as the next act. I can only imagine what they must have been talking about........ *please ignore the random family behind them.  Not sure who they are or why they were over in the coaches area*

this one is my favorite

They have yet to divulge their secret conversation, but that's OK because I crack up every time I look at these pictures.  I'll post pics of the actual performance very soon.

Awesome Bell, thanks

Yesterday morning Bella came to my room and woke me up early to tell me:

"time travels are just not fair."

Ok, I agree, I suppose............?

Also, Bella thinks we should name our new baby Duchess Ivanna Partay.  I wonder if there will ever come a day when that girl doesn't surprise me with what comes out of her mouth?

Keep your receipts........

That's what the ultrasound tech told me at my scan since I was only 16 weeks, but it looks like we might be adding a little girl to our family!  I'll have another scan in about a month, which will be more in depth and hopefully we'll be able to see for sure!  If this does turn out to be the baby girl the kids have been hoping for, her name will be Abigail Leighla. Abbie for short.  Whatever this baby turns to be, we know they'll be cool- the tech got a picture of the baby giving us a thumbs up!

I suppose he's right

Isaac said to me, "if our family was a movie, witches, pirates, and lions that talk would come to our house.  Squirrels are OK though."

And there you have it.
