Audrey has become quite the little poser lately. I guess after nearly three years of the camera flashing constantly in her face, she has just decided to make the best of it!

Audrey and Hope both started taking ballet and tap dancing lessons at the beginning of September and they both love it! I have to admit, Hope seems to be showing a little more potential, she is so graceful and serene. Audrey on the other hand, reminds me more of a “bull in a china cabinet” to use a phrase from my grandma. The girls performed at area nursing homes to dance during Great Days of Service in our community. This was the first “performance” for both and they did so good, I was so proud! Can’t wait for the recital in May!
This year we took in two fairs- the Fannin County Fair and the Texas State Fair. So here are some pictures from both. Audrey loves to ride the fair rides. She is one adventurous little girl about things like that. She takes it as a personal insult that she is too small for some of the rides and will ride anything we’ll let her get on.
Audrey especially loved petting Elsie’s calf at the Bordon booth. While we were there, a lady came over to look at Elsie, who has horns, and the lady actually asked the Bordon representative if Elsie was a boy. The Bordon person said no, Elsie is always a girl and that is her calf next to her. The lady then commented that she thought that the Elsie cow was a boy because it had horns since boy cows have horns and girl cows don’t! Are you kidding me?!!! She could not have been from Texas….

We don’t get to spend nearly enough time with “Jeff’s side” of our family, but we always have fun when we do. We all got together for dinner for mine and Billy’s birthdays and the kids played in the park across the street afterwards. We also got to go to one of Trey’s football games, the first of many I hope. He did great!
It was so crowded and crazy I probably should have titled the post “First and Last Trip to Chuck E. Cheese!” Audrey loved it though, so we’ll go back I’m sure. Hope, Sunnie, Ben, and Mom went along for the fun, but it was way too chaotic for me to get many pictures.
Here are pictures from our trip to the Dallas Zoo last month. We had a lot of fun. It was an absolutely beautiful day in the middle of the week so we did not have to deal with a big crowd. Audrey had so much fun. She loved all the animals, but probably the giraffes most of all. She thought it was so funny how the giraffe had to spread his legs so far apart to bend down for a drink of water!

Audrey is a major daddy’s girl right now! She is all about her dad. She has decided that daddy is the most fun to play babies with and even locks me out of her room when they are playing babies! I asked her why she likes to play babies with daddy and she said because “it’s so much fun!” She just leads him through the house pushing strollers, carrying babies and diaper bags. It’s so cute. And daddy really looks like he is having fun too! When Audrey really wants something from him, she reverts back to calling him “da-da” so, so sweetly…and it works everytime. Such a smart girl!
