My Little Grass Shack

Happy Mother's Day! I hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday honoring the mothers in their life.

We had a fun-filled weekend at our house.

On Saturday, Mimi and Papa drove in from St. Louis to see Mary Catherine perform in her End-of-Year ballet recital. The theme was "Dancing Our Way Across the USA". Mary performed in three different numbers. She absolutely loves ballet and it showed this weekend!

Today, we enjoyed Mass and a lovely brunch out.  (This allowed for me to treat my mom to a delicious breakfast and lunch even though I wasn't home at all on Friday or Saturday to properly entertain.  If I had been thinking far enough in advance I would have prepared pineapple upside down cake for our little hula baby!)

I hope you enjoy the music and pictures...two of the songs on the PlayList (Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Little Grass Shack) are the actual numbers she performed to...I couldn't find Way Down in New Orleans from the Disney Princess and the Frog soundtrack.


  1. I love dance recital days! Enjoy!

  2. She is growing into such a little lady! Precious. Love the pic of Ben.
    Sounds like you has a great Mother's Day.

    My last day is the 26th so anytime after that for dinner would be great. Just give me a call and we'll work out the details.


  3. Isaw this sweet picture in Melinda's side bar and had to stop by to tell you...awwww...what an absolute cutie pie she is!

  4. Dance is so much fun. Glad you had a wonderful mothers day.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
