I finally have a camera!!! Praise the Lord, I finally have a camera. I started with two pictures of the kitchen I just finished painting. . .and when I say “I” I really mean Mom. Thank God for Mom and her ability to show up at a moment’s notice and paint a kitchen. . .or a bedroom. . .or three bedrooms. . .and refuse my money and buy me lunch. I love you Mom and thanks again.
Okay, so two pictures of the kitchen and my newly charged battery and I’m off to go get my early Christmas present (hair colored and cut) with everything from diaper bag essentials to tap shoes for Emma’s dance class tonight. I have everything but the children because Mom’s finishing up the kitchen while Ellie sleeps and is picking Emma up from school and then bringing Dust and the girls to meet me at Shaynah’s Scissorhands Salon.
Leotard, check. Skirt, check. Pantyhose, check. Dance bag with tap and ballet shoes, check, check, check. Diaper bag for Ellie, check. Camera, check. I have everything, I just need the other Tows that complete the Case de Tow.
My hair looks awesome, we pick up diapers from Wal-Mart, we still have $16.95 in the bank (Praise the Lord, it’s pay day tomorrow), we are totally ready for Emma’s dance class which is the last class until after Christmas and we get to watch her. Dustin hasn’t ever seen Emma dance, so tonight he will see how productive his $38 is.
Needless to say, Emma was adorable and made the cutest faces while she danced. She was half a step ahead of everyone because she was proving to us that she knew the steps first. We’re going through a competitive phase and with Dustin and I (the most competitive people I know) having offspring, let’s just say this phase is going to last awhile.
As I start to take pictures of my little ballerina, my camera beeps at me. “No memory space on internal memory,” it said. Leotard, skirt, pantyhose, dance bag with tap and ballet shoes, diaper bag, etc. I remembered my brand new, just out of the box camera, but not the memory stick. I was able to take four pictures of Emma and a short video. Normally you would be going through 20 photos of Emma preforming demi-plies, arabesques and pas de bourrees, but alas, no.
I’m putting the memory stick in as we speak, so fear not. Come Monday morning, there will be more than enough photos of Casa de Tow’s Christmas Decorating 2008. Have a great weekend!
Emma’s best friend Keeley just to her right and Emma pretending to be a flower or something delicate in nature. . .hey, I played contact sports growing up, I still don’t know the meaning of delicate or how to be it.
I love this picture. My goofy tap dancer right before she tears a hole in pantyhose no. 4 (we’ve gone through now four pairs in less than two months). This tap dancing can get pretty brutal.
