Noah had a really hard time with all the attention that the girls got during the hair and make-up session...So I spiked his hair. Even though he doesn't like his hair spiked...LOL
Bethany has been with the studio for 6 years. This is not a mistake. Bethany took dance 3 years before Lynsey started.
Since the girls were getting trophies this year we bought Noah one too. Daddy bought Noah some candy, and a balloon.

1 red onion sliced
garlic (I use the already chopped in the fridge kind)
1 stick of butter
Honey glazed ham broth 3 large ladles (Chris had made a honey glazed ham that day)
1 large head of cabbage cored, and chopped into bite sized pieces
1 tablespoon of salt
2 tablespoons of sugar
In my large pressure cooker I melted the butter. I sauted the garlic, and onions. Then I put all the cabbage in the cooker. It filled the cooker. Then I put in the 3 ladles of Honey glazed ham broth, salt, and sugar. Then I stirred it all up really good. Then I put the pressure cooker lid on and brought it to full pressure, and cooked it for about 5 minutes.
I made this note to myself the last time I cooked it...LOL But last time I had a HUGE cabbage from the garden instead of a tiny cabbage from the store...LOL
Notes to self: We loved this stuff. We ate it for two nights. We could have used just alittle more the second night. Not to worry, I saved the broth, and I am going to cook another head of cabbage this way. I could have used any kind of broth, and I could have used less liquid at that. I'm still playing around with this. All I know is that it was sweet cabbage, and everyone ate it. In the end that's all that matters.

1.) On the night of prom Chris and I took Lynsey and her friend to dinner. I was finished getting ready, and decided to check in on what each of the kids were doing before we left. Noah was watching T.V. in the living room, Christopher was playing on the PS2 in his room, and Bethany was in her room with the door closed. So, I opened the door and Bethany was sitting on the floor with her barbies all spread out. When I looked at her she wiped her eyes really quick. I said 'Bethany what are you doing?' She said 'Playing with my barbies.' She looked so sad. I said 'What's a matter?'. She said 'Well this barbie (the one in her hand) just met these two barbies (they were each in their own cars) and they became friends. Then on the way home these two barbies were in a really bad car accident and this barbie is really sad because they were such good friends.' I said 'Oh Bethany that does sound really sad, but remember it's only pretend.' She said 'I know.' Then I smiled and shut the door.
2.) I rented the movie 'The Blind Side' I didn't ask anyone to watch it I just put it on and they all sort of just joined me. It was a really great movie, and it felt really great to know that we could all watch something and think it was really great and it wasn't really a kid movie, or a cartoon. Anyway, the next night Bethany comes to me and says 'Are you going to watch a movie tonight?' I said 'Yes' She said 'I hope it's not that movie the blind side that we watched last night'. I asked 'Why? Didn't you like it?' She said 'I've been thinking about that movie all day, I can't get it out of my head........(pause a few seconds) then she looks at me and says 'It really effected me.'

We took Lynsey and her friend Kelsea out to dinner before prom. We ate at the Coastal Kitchen at the marina on St. Simons Island. It was really nice. People kept stopping at our table to tell the girls how pretty they were.
