The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

Dress Rehearsal & Mini Photo Shoot



Today was Layna's dress rehearsal for her very FIRST recital ever! (Which will take place tomorrow afternoon) It was so exciting that even Diego wanted to come along to watch. They did a quick run through of the dance. Her class which is 3-5 year old Ballet/Tap Combo was assigned a tap dance "All Shook Up". I am amazed at how well Alayna has done in these past 13 weeks of dance classes. She got right up on that stage and did her thing! Not even the slightest bit embarrassed. If you asked me 13 weeks ago if this was a possibility I wouldn't have shuddered to say "No Way!" But she's done it! She's totally proved me wrong and completely enjoys taking these classes!

So here's some pictures of her run-through: (They only did it once so not time to be technical with the photos... the lighting of course was horrible... so this is what I got.) Oh and Diego took video.







Afterwards they took all the girls backstage to do a class photo. And then anyone who wanted to buy individual shots could take pictures as well. I opted not to buy them and did my own mini photo shoot. Right outside the auditorium were some nice rocks with bushes. And I am talking like big rocks. So I had Alayna climb up and she started giving me pose after pose. Of course I helped her out some. A few minutes later the other moms started to come out and noticed me with my big camera shooting pictures of her on these rocks. One of them came over to me and said "Wow that's such a CUTE pose and what a great idea on these beautiful rocks!" So I took her all over the school and got a few shots in different locations.

Here they are:














(This was ALL her pose... don't ask me what she's doing...)
