So tonight will be Emma's first visit from the Tooth Fairy. Needless to say, she is very excited!

I know many people send the file out for printing at their local Costco or Walgreens but I just printed it out on card stock at home and I thought it turned out perfectly. Now I just need to find a new frame to fit it and the perfect spot to display it in our home.
I love decorating for all holidays, so you can't beat this freebie! Take a look at their site if you aren't familiar with it already, I guarantee you will find some neat ideas you can do yourself.

Last weekend was another busy one. Saturday was Emma's Dance Showcase held at a local elementary school. This was the dance company's first chance to practice their competition dances in front of an audience. It was an all day event that concluded at 5:00 p.m. with a spaghetti dinner.
The picture above is a group picture of the entire Stepping Out dance company. Emma is in the front row, the fourth from the left.
I told Michael to brace himself for the girls' costumes since they are a little small! The Pre-Tater tap group is dancing to "Splish, Splash (I was taking a bath)" so they have the blue costume underneath and come out on stage wearing the towels over the top.
And here is the entire Pre-Tater tap group as they were getting ready to go out on stage. The girls did such a great job! They don't compete until May so I'm sure their number will look very sharp after a few more months of continued practice.
After the showcase, Emma, Michael and I enjoyed dining on the spaghetti together. It was rather nice having alone time with one child - very rare around here!
