Ballet Class

Monica and Grace have been doing Ballet this year at the TriCities Academy of Ballet. They LOVE ballet. Enjoy these pictures of them having fun at class.

Grace:









And Here is Monica. By the way, she is in the Nutcracker Ballet performance this year as a fairy. The Show is tonight-through this weekend! I think Ballet is monicas favorite thing to do, even though she looks serious in these pictures. She works really hard and her skills are improving every week!

Things to come, Emily


Just think Emily in a few days this will all be yours. This is what we came home to tonight with our babysitter. Emily has agreed to take on Liam and Grace for a week. They didn't break her last time, but this time they're coming back bigger and brattier. Just kidding, I'm sure they will be little angels.

Canned Grape Juice

Fair FUN with Ashleigh!!!!

My sister Ashleigh and I have a tradition of going to the fair in Tri-cities, WA. Its our one day to spend as much money as we want on greasy food and to act like goofy teenagers again. Last year Ashleigh was pregnant and couldn't make it so I had been looking forward to this for 2 years. We always have a dare that we have to do and this year we got them on video. Those are at the end of this post. Now On to the FAIR!!!!

The freaky cow girl lady. Her hand was so big and warm.


Ashleigh curled my hair this fun way before we left. It looked kinda cool.

.

We went to look at the pigs. We got in the pin and the pig was biting Ashleighs leg! We couldn't stop laughing, we were trying to be brave and although you cant tell, we was pretty scared.

NICE PIGGY....


This year the Truman Family entered in lots of stuff this year. Here I am showing off my blue ribbon for a scrap book page I did..fun fun fun!


Mmmmm.... Funnel cakes. This was both of our favorites.


Look who we ran into. Jordan and his good friend Justin. These two were our toys this year. We had so much fun playing with them. Whenever we got bored we just looked for them and somehow found something fun to do.

Ashleigh went on the trampolinie thing - and said it very fun! Check out Ashs Matrix pose..lol!

Silly faces
OK, this time just smile. (ahhh.. that Justin!!! He made us laugh so much.)
Then onto the concert. Clint Black. A country singer.
We ran into my aunt, my uncle, my gramdma and all the other weirdos that we are related to. It was lots of fun.

We grooved big time at the concert. One lady kept glaring at us because she thought we were being rude.... but COME ON!!!


After the concert we got bored and couldn't find the dream tellers so we decided to go spy on Jordan and his friends. Here I am walking all "sneaky like".

We spotted him. We had to be velly velly sneaky.


He was totally flirting with this girl. It was fun to watch him. Yes we are creepy.
Then they spotted us. Here he is with Justin and Mackenzie.

This kid is hilarious!!


By the way, we got sham wows!!! (Or shall we say SCAM wows)

and yes we LOVED them (that night anyways)!!

When we headed out to our car to go home this is the scene we fell upon in the parking lot. They were surrounded by sheriffs on horses. It was Jordan and Justin! At first I thought they were in some sort of trouble, but I guess Justin just left his lights on and needed his battery charged.


The next morning Jordan comes home with a henna tattoo. This is like a week before his mission. He is such a dork! I think they last for at least a few weeks. This is such a Jordan thing to do though.


THE DARES:Our Tradition of Stupidity- - but its hilarious! We all dare each other to do something hard. Enjoy.

We dared Jordan to kiss the girl he was flirting with earlier. Here is a picture of it. It wasnt just a peck either. Poor girl! Just look at the expression on her face.



Justins Dare was to dig through the garbage cans and look for bottle tops. This one may have been my fav.

We tried to find a hideous girl for Jordan and this was the best we could find. His dare was to go up to her and flirt with her. His was pretty lame, we should have had him do something else because he was MORE than willing.
video

My dare was to ask for a free bracelet for rides. This was kinda scary for me..but I did it!
video

Mackenzie is big into drama and acting. So we thought long and hard on this one. I wish I would have gotten a better video of this because it was hilarious!!! He had to trip in front of this "hot" girl.
video
Ashleighs dare was to ask the stage people if I could see Clint Black (This was after the performance and the stage hands were cleaning up). The creep was totally hitting on Ashleigh. Gross!!
video

We had so much fun if you cant tell. Love you ASH!!! Until next year.....

Summertime- Mann Clan has arrived!

This summer has been so much fun. I have missed out on lots of great picture taking opportunities because my camera broke! Last weekend we went camping with Jake & Angela and this week the Mann troup has arrived. Kids are everywhere. 8 Children, 4 Adults and one dog= a BUSY house!!! Its been really fun. Next week The Ashbys will be coming along with my little brother Jordan (who is going on a mission to Las Vegas in a few weeks!) . We will be going to the fair then too..cant wait!!!!!!

Here are some of the pictures thus far of our many adventures this week. On Saturday: Yard Sales!!!! Tiffany showed Micah how to do his first real "bartering." Yard Sales are an art ya know..she had Micah offer the lady .50 cents for some relaxtion balls. He didnt want to do it..he was scared, but eventually Tiffany helped him out and he got them for .50 !




The next morning I woke up to some little singing mini Jonas brothers.. Trevor and Liam . We should call the band "Under-Jammers."

We then went to visit Grandpa Billy in the nursing home. Here are some pictures of that visit. Tiffany sang while Kyle played the guitar. It. Was. AWESOME!. I really miss hearing Tiffany sing..I dont think there is anything more beautiful than her voice and I have forgotten that.

video

Grandpa loved it! Vivian came in to hear the tunes too.

And then the next day the kids decided to take a bath with these cool tub crayons and they had a blast -- a messy messy blast. Here is what that looked like:

More to come this week...stay tuned!
