On June 6, six days before movers would descend on our flat to pack up our things and ship them to America, a small group of four-year old princesses came over to celebrate Hannah’s fourth birthday.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I’ll just go ahead and admit that I never remember St Patrick’s Day. The kids don’t do anything special at school, I don’t send them in green because they’re in uniforms (or at least Jayce is), and I don’t think to do special holiday things around the house like dye our various meals green. I know, pretty lame, right? But I forget year after year.
However, I DO have this wonderful video of Hannah and Hadley dancing with professional Irish dancers at an Irish Pub in Disney World. She absolutely adored this and killed it on the dance floor. Watch for around :40 when she does a double high kick and gets cheers from the other diners. Hadley was like, “Uh…I’ll just let Hannah do this one.”
I have watched this video over and over since this summer. It is so my girl, ready to dive into whatever it is, full force.
And it’s so cute that she can’t find her hips to put her hands on. Three year olds just kill me.
You must click through to see the video.
Hannah’s preschool sing along was this morning. I couldn’t find her at first because she was seated in the corner in the front and we were in the back. But a few people squished out of the way so that I could make my way to the side to see her, and what I discovered was a sad little girl.
Highlights include her doing her own thing throughout the warm up song and then bowing at the end, leading a line of girls to a dead end, twice, and not knowing where to go from there, and stopping to hug Jayce every time that she passed. But really, you have to see her in action.
The biggest difference that I can see between now and when she started ballet un January are her legs. They used to be shorter and chunkier at the top, and now they are long(er) and have slimmed out considerably. I don’t like it.
Once the class was over Jayce couldn’t resist running out onto the floor for a few spins himself.
Chris got the kids giggling about something and I was so glad I had my camera for one of my favorite pictures of them ever (below). I love these two monkeys.
Short and sweet, but really, if you’ve read this far down, just go back and watch the video.
