My goal for this year is to update more! I know I know, why set a goal that is just about impossible.... well I can at least try!

Ryleigh started the year with a bang, she went and visited for a day at Trinity's k-4 (prek) program. She loved it and asked if she could go there now, on the days she was not going to FirstLearning Center... haha.

She has decided she wants a Justin Bieber Birthday party. She went to Cake Art and told them "exactly" what to put on the cake.
I quote..
"I Love Justin Bieber" and "Ryleigh's Fourth Birthday Bash" :)
(what can I say.... shes my child! lol.) She also told them she wanted a little Justin Bieber boy on top. Hopefully they will live up to her expectations.

We had two "Ice" Days so our first week back to school in Wilco was a short one, we get MLK day on Monday, I can get used to these short weeks. :)

While we were at BoJos signing up for her birthday party we stayed to play for a little while and Ryleigh decided she wanted to do Gymnastics as well as dance. So since she has been asking randomly to do this we took the leap and registered her. She now goes to Gymnastics on Wed and Dance on Thurs. I will have ot post the pic from my phone later.

Here is a video of her swinging on the rope at BoJos. She has NEVER done this before and had always been scared. This day she did it four times before we made her leave! UHHH VIDEO WONT UPLOAD I WILL TRY AGAIN TONIGHT. Regardless its on phanfare. go take a look!

Playing Catchup!

What a busy month. Practice practice practice! We are living, sleeping and eating nutcracker right now I think! :) Halee had her birthday party and she tried to find a place JUST LIKE BOJOs!!!!

The month of November also means its time to see Santa and the pink pig! This was the ffirst year that Ryleigh did SPEAK to Santa! He even reminded her she needed to be sleeping in HER bed and not at the foot of mine..... yea still not happening..... Ryleigh enjoyed the pink pig the most however! She loves Priscilla! After the trip to Lenox and Phipps we rode to the American Girl store and Sarah got her hair done!

The next weekend was Ryleigh's pageant. She happened to see a girl trying on a pageant dress at Garden Gate when we ran in for some shoes and she decided she was going to do that too. She did a fantastic job, and looked so grown up! If they (they being the Pageant gods) did not move a five year old down to the three year old group, Ryleigh would have recieved a trophy. Her group was also the only one that did not have a second place... umm

this girl in blue was the five year old who won!

JB and I also went on a crusie over thanksgiving! We left out of Jacksonville and went to Key West and Nassau! THe weather was sooooo perfect. We laid around and did just about nothing the entire trip... and that made it WONDERFUL!WHAT FUN… the weather was perfect.


She did great in her Christmas program at school. They sang a few songs and had a dessert party. Momma and Jeff came down and surprised her by coming to watch and eat dessert.

Just being Ryleigh!

Practice practice practice and more practice. But boy! What a show! The nutcracker was fantabulous! Ryleigh is already asking when we are going to start back….. I however, am not ready!
Ryleigh and I at the Sunday show, I was a back stage worker.
This is what everyone felt like by the time the Sunday show came around!
Our beautiful Cherub!

Where I found her, she did this by her self in the dressing room while she was waiting for her call. everyone was EXAUSTED!

We have the fastest little angel anywhere!
