Ripley's Aquarium - Gatlinburg, TN - Spring Break 2012

video

I took so many pictures on our visit to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg I decided to give them their own post.  Plus, to save time uploading photos and because I think doing stuff like this is fun, I made all the pictures into a musical video.

Here are the links to the other videos I made from the pictures of us rock-climbing/hiking and all the other vacation pictures.
For some reason Blogger won't let me upload the videos - possibly because I used copyrighted music. I have no clue. Oh well.

Go Soph Go

Sophie asked what all she got to do once she was 10.  Brian told her she now has to mow the grass.  HAHA  Well, Soph was on board - she was out there ready to mow.  Look at her go!

Sophie is 10 years old!!!!

My big girl is 10!!!!! Is that even possible?!?!

She recently got her YELLOW belt in TaeKwonDo so I made her some yellow belted cupcakes.



The other half of the batch were Popcorn Cupcakes.  It's not real popcorn its made with mini marshmallows and yellow food coloring and  stuck down with icing.  She picked these out because she is DYING for some popcorn - she can't eat it with her braces.








AWWW - they love each other sometimes! =)


Thanks Aunt Cindy!

Rock Star Lola

We took Lola's guitar to have a peg added so she can have a strap to help her hold it.  Which means she got to pick out a new guitar strap.  This is the one she chose.  She said it was very rock-n-roll.  The guy in the store had a hard time keeping a straight face, he said he had someone just like her in mind when he ordered that strap.  HAHA

Daddy's Work


The girls got to see where Daddy works. 
Lola loved the GIANT chair.
They were also excited to wear the glasses to see the production floor.

Dr. Seuss Day at Luce Elementary 2012

Very last minute costume idea - we didn't have time to make a fancy shmancy Seuss character costume so I convinced them to go as Dr Seuss himself.  I made them some ID badges with his picture so people would know who they were.  (It was also crazy sock day - I don't think Dr. Seuss wore pink leopard print socks with his suit. lol)

Sophie ended up winning the costume contest for the 3rd thru 5th graders.
