JUMP 2012

JUMP 2012  Abby went to her first dance convention this past weekend and what an experience it was!! Two days of competing and classes in Hip Hop, Ballet, Lyrical and Jazz. There were scholarships available so she and Addie were nervous! So many girls!!   This was the qualifier for New York as well.  Friday afternoon we got there at 2:30 and checked in.  The girls were given schedule booklets with their names on them (very cool lol) and a number they needed to wear the whole time they were in classes (for scholarship judging).  They had dance classes one after the other all afternoon. We did not get back to the hotel til 9:30 that night and had to be back at 6:30am as their first company dance was at 7:30am. They performed 4 dances and were awarded High Gold for each one.  They were amazing!!! Then classes from 3:00 til 8:00 with the scholarship award ceremony at 8:00. Talk about a jam packed two days!! Craziness!!  They had to learn a dance routine in every class in minutes and had the teacher watching them and writing down the numbers of the ones they felt deserved a scholarship. So stressful for them but they worked their little butts off!! They had classes with So You Think You Can Dance winner Melanie and Billy Bell and a few others.  We were on pins and needles at the Scholarship Awards!!  When they called Abby's name as a Contemporary Jazz & Lyrical scholarship winner she was over the moon!! (Tish and I were pretty happy too lol) Addie also won a scholarship for Contemporary Jazz & Lyrical, so their first dance convention couldn't have gone any better!!  We are so excited for New York in July!!

Thanksgiving







It's getting close to Thanksgiving and that brings about thoughts of all the things I am thankful for. I am so thankful that Tisha has made it through her surgery and is on the mend, we could not have asked for a better outcome and I know all your thoughts and prayers were the reason why. Thank you so much!! I am thankful for the health and happiness of all my children and grandchildren. I am thankful that my little Brenny has gone from not saying any words to not only saying all his words but telling me the letters and all the sounds as well lol. Good job Brenny Bren!! I am thankful for Kaden, my sweetheart boy, and Abby my princess pea. I am thankful for my children, who make me proud to know them every day and my husband whose hard work and support allows me to do what I love best, being a Mom & Grandma. I am thankful for my son-in-laws who are such good husbands and fathers! I am thankful for extended family and friends. Waiting for Tisha's surgery we received such love, concern and support and it made me realize just how lucky we are to have the family and friends we do. I am so thankful for them as well. Happy Thanksgiving!!
