Here are some pics from Olivia's 1st Day of Pre-school and Last Day (yesterday).
She has grown so much this year.

Pop Pop and Olivia on the 1st day, she was so nervous!

Olivia with her teachers that she will miss so dearly!

Thanks Woodside for an incredible year!
I was very overwhelmed last night. Dress rehearsal is a chance to get in your videotaping and pictures because you cannot do that at the actual recital.
Well 1st, the girls were at opposite ends of the stage so I could not get them both in the actual videotaping. My zoom was broken off the video camera and so I could not zoom in or out and it was slightly out of focus. So of course instead of enjoying my talented beautiful children I got stressed, flustered and upset. They truly were amazing.
My sister used my new camera to get some pictures but couldn't figure out the settings and so most pictures are blurry. BUT I'M OK today just a little upset still. I will share what I have and start trying to find others who got some better pictures. I am pretty sure my friend Paula got some good shots of my girls.

Here is before when we were waiting in line for pictures

The girls with their best friend Sophia

The girls after the certain opened

Worst of all you never call baby when you say you will
Can you tell Megan is on the phone, totally in character ;)

Olivia was checking her dance teacher and followed her lead to remember this part of the dance

Megan adding in a wave to us as she was taping....she is good at making us feel loved!

I will add the video I took soon. I am going to try and get my friend Paula's video too since her daughter was right next to Megan.

I forget sometimes that what I say sounds much different to the kids then what I intended.
This morning the girls were having a tug of war over the fold up laundry basket.
They beckoned me to come and make a choice on who should get the basket.
I said, "OK, which one of you is gonna be the bigger person and let go"
Olivia then said, "Mommy, you are the bigger person so tell Megan to let go"

This game is closed to those of you who know the actual song. Thanks!

Last year it was fun to have people guess what the heck Megan was singing!
Megan is going to sing some of her dance recital song for this year and you all have to guess what it is! No glitz and glamour this year as we do not have her costume yet. I will def. post pics when we try them on.
The winner will get a bottle of my new Port Wine Reduction Sauce.
Only 3 guesses a day so make them count!
I believe Bethany got the correct answer last year because of the hints! I will do that after 3 days if nobody gets it right.
I do not believe Megan has a future in singing!

ok, I tried twice so I will post both videos although they are both pretty hard.

Megan is doing so well with her site words. We have our house labeled with words and Velcro so you can remove them. I have been lax in going over them with her the past few months and she totally lost what she knew. Well the past 2 days (Monday and today) Megan has got them all down again, so well that she was whispering the answers to Olivia. Megan is SO visual that she can identify the word like an image. Olivia is polar opposite. Olivia is working on sounding out the words. It should be fun to have to teach reading in 2 totally different ways.

Megan made me so proud tonight! Tomorrow I promise to video!

I am going into business for myself. My husband Joe got a pay cut and it got my butt moving! I did apply to CVS but my experience at Merrill Lynch must have made me seem over qualified to be a cashier so I didn't get the job! I am really ok about that!

Now on to my business. It is "Port Charles"....it is a Port Wine reduction sauce which is a family recipe, thanks to my brilliant Father Charlie whom it is named after!
It can be used to marinate meat or used as a dipping sauce. It is kind of like an A-1 but with a much better flavor. It is addicting!!!!! I am going to start out just selling online and locally.

I started a web page through blogger but am not very good or creative so I am going to reach out to my friend Rebecca whom helped make this page so beautiful! I am sure she can whip something up that looks professional!

I will hopefully soon be sending some of my readers a FREE bottle to TRY and review on their blogs, to get our name out there.
