Ava's 1st Recital and Silly Bandz

Last weekend was Ava's first dance recital.
She did a great job:)

Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and thought, "So that's what I look like?"
35 is creeping up on me!

And on another note, I don't know what I think of the silly bandz.

My kids and the neighbor kids will literally spend all afternoon laying them all out and trading them. Let me say they are not fighting over them, so that has not been a problem. I personally think they are pretty cute...bright colors and endless shapes... they are sort of/in a way little tiny pieces of (plastic) art. Anyway, I can see why they are such a hit.

I also know many of our local schools have banned them because of the distractions. My kids beg for more every day, although I have stuck to my original plan of only buying each child one pack. This is the biggest fad I have seen in a long time!

What do you think of them?

Oh my gosh, Chrissie! Ava is DARLING! Did your heart just stop when she hit the stage? She looks adorable! And you look great! No worriesabout the number of your age, ok?
Those bracelets are a distraction in class ... but I personally think they're great ~ when I'm not trying to teach! HA!
Could you please tell me who designed your blog? I just love the header and the layout ... thanks!
Hugs to you all ...

First of all, you look fab. Not even 35, come on! I just love dance recitals. My girls don't dance but I did for 18 years and we go to all of their friends' recitals. I love recital season and Nutcracker. What fun!

Ava is such a cutie pie. LOve her outfit. And that smile will melt hearts one day. Sounds like I am lucky my granddaughter has not found Silly Bandz yet. This is the first I've heard of them.

She is so precious. What a little doll in her recital outfit. You look great!

I had not heard of silly bands until now.

Awww. Ava looks fantastic! And so does her mom : )
Watching my daughters dance is one of my greatest joys. Judging by the look on her face, I trust she enjoyed it and this will be the first of many?
I think the bands are great. I saw the news story about elem schools banning them. Sheesh. It's always something. When I saw the story I thought I need to run out and get some for my little neice!

Ava is so cute! She is going to love that picture when she is older. I know it's already been said, but you don't look 35. Take care.

Chrissie, you look fabulous and I hate silly bandz! My kids are obsessed with them and I have now started using them as weapons...disciplinary weapons! But, I must admit that I wish it was me who invented them....as annoying as they are!

My twin daughters (5 y.o) had their first recital last weekend, too! I'll have to get some photos up. As for Silly Bandz, my kids (twins + 4 y.o. son) love them too. I've actually been VERY impressed by how openly the children are sharing them with one another. My kids came home from school with wristfuls of them before we ever bought them a pack of their own. So I really liked how generous the children were with one another, and it was the only reason I bought some for my own kids ... on the condition that they gave some to the other children!
