Elmo's Got The Moves

So the other weekend my girls danced in their Dance Showcase. I was so proud of them getting up in front of over 300 people and doing two dances. What really surprised me was how confident they were, and how much they loved being on the stage. 

After threatening to cancel their dancing lessons prior to the showcase because they weren't practicing...I am thrilled it how much more excited they are about dancing. 

Their class dance was to an Elmo song. They wore the cutest Elmo pants...with his face on their bums. And cute red caps that I managed to pick up for $2. 

As a special treat for the kids at the following dance lesson, I made them all Elmo cupcakes. Admittedly not my tidiest work...but the kids loved them!

Happy Valentine's Day

Today we made cupcakes...banana and chocolate.

Holly wanted to make some cookies for her Kindy teachers, but we had so many aged bananas to use up, I thought cupcakes would be a better option.

We boxed each teacher an individual cupcake. And made up special labels for each box! Each label had "I'm Bananas About You" and a picture of a couple of monkeys with Holly's head superimposed on top.

Holly was pretty pleased with the results!
