Dance Picture Day!

Today was picture day at Maggie’s Dance class. She’s dressed in her outfit for the recital that is on Saturday.

Maggie’s in the 1st row, 2nd from the right.

Happy National Ballerina Day!

What? It’s Ground Hog Day?? Not in my family 🙂

For as long as I can remember, it’s been National Ballerina Day… 2/2 (tutu). You can imagine the celebrations on 2/2/02!

An example of an email from my Dad in 2001:

This is an automated response from your father.

Although most of the masses think today is “Ground Hog” day, we in the O’Daniel clan have been aware for years that this is really

“National Ballerina Day”

Those of us “in the know” can hardly contain our enthusiasm each year with the approach of 02/02.  Break out the noise makers and the rum punch.  Let your hair down and Twist Again with Chubby Checker!  Today is TuTu!

Those of you truly dedicated to the perpetuation of this sacred holiday should ALREADY be planning for next years MILLENNIUM Celebration.  Yes.. it only happens once every 1000 years.  You guessed it… TuTuTu!  Get ready NOW!  Don’t miss the opportunity of a lifetime… we will only see it once  02/02/02.  Or in the newest jargon  02.02.02!

Tu dot Tu dot Tu !!!!!!!

It’s coming……………….

Be Ready!

I can’t wait for 2/2/22

Friday’s Fotos: All Dressed Up

The kids received a package from Granny Frani this week. Burke couldn’t wait to wear his new clothes! (Thank you Granny Frani!!)


All of the girls at Maggie’s dance class received their costumes for the big recital (that’s in June!). You should have seen the extra bounces in all of their steps that day! LOL


(Now, to keep her out of it until the recital!)

Thursday Theater – OMG

Goddess hosts Thursday Theater. Wanna join in? Go add your name to the list!

This week’s theme is OMG: Anything that made you say, “OMG, I have to get this on video.”  Whether unbearable cuteness, ungodly messes, a clever new trick, or something that just screams “document me!”

Yep. I got that. We pulled out some things from the dress-up box on Monday… and even Logan wanted in on the fun.

Burke (and Daddy) sing the “Logan and Burke” song…while Logan (dressed in a tutu he refused to let me take off of him) beatboxes in the background.


And just so you get the whole picture, here are a few still shots.
