Light Show @ The Prominade

We have gone to see this light show at the mall the past few years since the mall opened and the kids just love it. Lanie took her camera to video record it. It is a little on the darker side since I didn't mess with the camera setting to lighten it up a bit but you get the idea... LOL

Fixed and Broke Again...

We took Lanie today to get her tooth fixed (they just glued her tooth back on) and while I am sure we will be broke from the bill we get LOL that is not what I meant! She came home and bit into a corndog and it broke off again. Nice, eh? She goes back on Thursday the 8th to get it fixed yet again.

here is the pic i took before it broke back off... compare the my last post (which ironically is how she looks again now LOL)

Missing ½ a Tooth...

you read it right! Lanie is only missing half a tooth.
And of course it had to be her top front Adult tooth =(
She was over Aunt Paula's house getting ready to make cookies. While Shelby was making the cookie dough Lanie was messing with her necklace (an elastic necklace with a large bead hanging on it) Well she pulled the necklace out and let it go to see it spring back and it chipped her tooth. They called right away to let me know what had happened and I sent louis to go pick her up.

I thought it looked bad but she wasn't complaining much. When I took her to the dentist today he noticed a pin sized nerve that was exposed. So he got that fixed up. He had to drill and then seal the hole but he did not fix the tooth yet. He wants to make sure it looks ok (and hope she doesn't need a root canal) in a week and then he will try to re-attach the broken part of the tooth.

So here is a pic of my cutie missing half a tooth =(

#1 pom routine: The pom/cheer squad is made up of 4-8th graders and they have only been practicing this routine for a little over a week (they just found out on Monday they would get to use it in the program) and it was their first time performing it in front of a crowd(ETA: not to mention the cheer coach taught them this with a dislocated knee). I think they did very well under the circumstances and I have to Laugh because Martie squeaks the letter L at the beginning. She was SO nervous! If you want to follow her She starts out in the middle of the front row. The cheer company refuses to pay the return shipping so we are just keeping these poms. The girls decided they looked ok to use so we are keeping them....

#2 Jazz band: Wes is the only trombone in the jazz band so he is easy to spot. He does very well IMO ;) no clue what song they are playing...

#3 2nd graders singing: Lanie is in the pink dress and her pink sparkly santa hat LOL my arms were getting tired by this point lol They sang an Itallian lullabye. I think it was called Dorme Dorme? no clue... I think she was doing good until she stopped singing I was LOL because she literally just stopped moving her mouth. Then she was blinking her eyes... I am thinking her allergies were messing with her but I am not sure.

#6 5th graders singing: They sang Winter wonderland and I thought it sounded great =) Right in front you see 3 people wearing the blue band shirts and Santa hats. Martie is the one in the middle. You can see the white on her B&W chucks (that she was NOT supposed to be wearing with her band uniform). I really love this song so I was happy to hear it this year.

#7 Concert Band: concert band is 6-8th graders. I was running out of time on the memory card so I started late and it sounds funny at first until you "catch up" and figure out what they are playing. They are doing a Christmas Medley and after the first few bars they sounds very good. =) I was SO sad, I accidentally deleted the song they played from the Nutcracker. I wanted to cry! it was THE best song of the night and they went out with a bang! My camera was running out of memory so I deleted the Choir (none of my kids are in the chior) and accidentally selected "ok" to delete the nutcracker song =(
