Chef Valentines

We usually aren't big fans of Valentine's Day due to the big commercialism of this "holiday" but with a prego mommy craving cookies who could resist a great excuse to make some treats! After the cookies cooled the little chefs enjoyed spreading pink and white frosting on the heart shaped cookies then dousing them with sprinkles and red colored sugar. The results were YUMMY and we shared them with family that night after pizza dinner. Happy Valentine's Day to all - We love you!

Ballet part Deux

Ballet II started three weeks ago and our little ballerina was so excited. We kept all of the handouts she received from Ballet I so she could practice. They are taped to the wall and she and little sis love to play ballerina by imitating the poses captured on the handouts. The latest move they are both practicing is an arabesque - which means you stand gracefully on one leg and raise the other behind you with toe pointed, then arms are placed either out to the side or in a circle in front of the body. The girls are getting so good at balancing! The videos capture the little ballerina in action. The class was working on some bar skills as well as some fancy sashaying across the dance floor. Enjoy!
