Krumping: an urban street dance form characterized by free, expressive, and highly energetic moves involving the arms, head, legs, chest and feet. It has become a major part of hip hop dance culture. Krumping is used frequently in dance battles. Dance "battling," a form of dance where competitors face-off in a direct competition, arm swings and chest movements known as Flares and Bucks being extremely common.

Who says white kids can't dance?

Ok, that was fun, but what is up with this weather?!? I can't take much more! It is June 24th and I am SO COLD! I need the sun! And flip flops! And my halter tops! Waaaaaa!

Father's Day and other Fun

We all woke up too late to make breakfast in bed for Rob (like I got for Mother's Day), so we took him to lunch after worship and spent the afternoon at the PX.

The kids each made a picture, and here's some of the other loot.
I made this art collage as a class project last week and blogged about how to make it here.

I had WAY TOO MUCH fun shopping for these!
Everyone know what they are? Well, just in case you don't, it's the symbol for the Rebel Alliance (from Star Wars of course). I bought them from this seller. There are so many fun Star Wars cuff links it was really hard to choose! I thought these were the best because they are Star Wars but they're still kind of sleek and kind of like a little secret!

So I broke out the sewing machine. *GASP!* I know. It's be AGES since I did anything crafty that didn't involve the computer. We got in this new pattern by Amy Butler at the shop and I couldn't resist!!

The yellow fabric is from the Basic Grey line. As is the purple fabric below. Anyone remember when I bought this fabric and said it was going to become a shirt? It was right before Christmas when Kara gave me the cute little purple earrings. Well, this fabric is now happy to be a dress and I wore my earrings with it today!
I made the dress first and it's a size too big. I'm going to have to do some adjustments. I did the shirt next and it fits much better. The photo editing is just for fun because the background was so busy.

The really funny part is that I remember sometime back in the 80's when my mom and I were shopping at Anthony's (that's a department store in Texas, not the Pizza place here) and tent shirts and stretch pants were all the rage! I was a little on the hefty side and some lady in the store said the tent shirts looked like maternity clothes and I would have plenty of time for that later! Now here I am in 2009 with my tent shirt and stretch pants! Life is funny. At least this one is a little classier than the knit one from the 80's!

School Project

Haven had to write a journal as if she was a girl on the "Oregon Trail." She went ALL OUT on this project. Complete with soaking the pages in coffee to "antique" them. She makes me so proud!
