Ella, Jacob, & Audrey's dance recital

I'm sure I've mentioned it a million times before, but I have a little girl who loves to dance. She has even recently taken her dancing to the next level and decided to become a choreographer. Here is a little piece she came up with and tried to teach to her brother and sister. This was take number 5. It fell apart a little in the middle, but they totally pulled it together at the end. Get ready to laugh. Cutest thing you've ever seen! Drum roll please...introducing, Ella, Jacob, and Audrey's first production:

End of the school year catch up

No one told me how absolutely insane the end of the school year gets once you have a school aged child who is also involved in activities. Not to mention, we have 3 birthdays in May (Ella, Andrew, and myself...myself being the most important, naturally...just kidding) and our anniversary is just a mere 2 days after my birthday.

You get it. It's busy. I don't know how we will manage once all 3 children are in school. I'm guessing we'll run on caffeine the entire month of May and sleep all of June.

Yeah right. Who am I kidding. The minute the pool opens, that's all I hear about all day.

Anyway, I fell out of the blogging world because frankly, I something had to give and I figured the 5 people who actually read this wouldn't really care anyway.

So here is last month summed up in pictures and bullet points. Because it's either that or nothing. Ooooh....and by the way, I'm on Instagram now and LOVING it! I'd love it if you followed me there. It's easier to keep up with our comings and goings...not that we are really that important to most of the world.

First, we celebrated Ella's 5th birthday! It was a "Little Mermaid theme". Not my choice obviously, but it's not really about me. Those fancy parties I used to plan down to every detail have now been replaced by "Disney party in a box." And you know what? I'm OK with that. Mostly...

We had pre-K graduation (insert sobbing, major ugly mommy cry for weeks over this. How can I now have a Kindergartner. Say it isn't so!!). This was the same night as Andrew's birthday. Needless to say, his party was more of a "here's your cake, now we got to jet out the door!"

This was followed by the end of the year dance recital. This year, she took a ballet/tap combo class, so her routine was tap. They danced to the song "Jump in the Line"...yes, the song from Beetle Juice. Super, super cute.

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the lake with some friends. Going to the lake is not exactly my favorite activity. It was something my parents made me do constantly growing up, so I've learned to tolerate it. However, it's definitely fun when you have grown up friends to chill with. Now beach...I LOVE.

A few days later was my birthday. My husband showered me with a few of my favorite things: peonies, a glass of Pinot Noir, crème brûlée, and 3 macarons. 

Two days later, was our ELEVENTH anniversary! I can't believe we've been together for 11 years, but in the same way, it feels like we have been together our entire lives. I wish I had a picture of us all jazzed up in nice clothes and ready to hit the town (we, for once, actually had a babysitter)...but, alas, I forgot. When we go to the beach soon, I'll make that happen. We need some updated pictures of us that are not wedding photos or me pregnant with child. HA!

Whew! And Mother's Day? That was pretty much a wash...just too much going on.

But, it's OK, because Andrew saved all those special days (Mother's Day, Birthday, Anniversary) to get me something I've been wanting for a long time...

I know. Welcome to the new millennium.  It's kind of changed my life. Yes...I've officially had a taste of the koolaide.

You can follow me on Instagram under sarahantweiler. Original, I know.

Hope you all have recovered from the end of the school year! Happy Summer!
