I Heart Hands

The theme at I Heart Faces this week is extremities or anything but a face. The first picture that popped into my head was this one I took of my daughters hand on her first birthday as she ate her cupcake, I love the chubby little fingers wrapped around the cupcake, completely coated with frosting and sprinkles.

Day of Dance

Today we went to the convention center for the Day of Dance it was a lot of fun, would have been more fun had the girls not been so grumpy, they didn't want to let Tung and I do any of the dances we wanted to do, Payton was a pouty grumpy mess, we think they both were just over tired, we forced them to nap when we got home, but what we did do was fun.

Payton took this picture of us learning the Lady Raiders (arena football cheerleaders) dance

Entertaining herself while we learn the dance

Everyone loved Payton's shoes, since February is heart month everyone was wearing red

with Miss Virginia International and Miss Preteen Virginia International, Reagan was fascinated with them which is why she is looking at the girl and her crown, not me

This was the highlight for Payton and Reagan, the Lady Raider cheerleaders, and they even let them each hold a pom pom.

Tung attempting to do the balance stick, they use it in therapy on shoulders, it was pretty hard, a photographer took my picture doing it hopefully I don't end up on the web somewhere!

Daddy loves Obama

Today at school Payton talked about Presidents' Day and did a worksheet that had George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama on it.  Payton told her teacher Ms. Anne that her Daddy loved Obama.  When Tung asked her why she told Ms. Anne that she said because he's always watching shows on TV with Obama on them. She's so observant and I know she's seen him on the news, finance shows and she even noticed I was watching him a few weeks ago during the Super Bowl when they interviewed him and asked who he thought would win the game.  We asked her if she wanted to be President and she said "no, only boys are presidents" We told her that she probably didn't want to be President anyway, you're supposed to encourage your children to be whatever they want to be, but we just can't lie to her and tell her being President would be a great job!
