My canvas, however, is such a natural dancer that I feel it would be a waste of God-given talent to withhold her from dance lessons any longer. I am going to look into ballet lessons for Tori and Julia after Christmas. While I'm going to start with ballet, it probably isn't Julia's natural tendency. Several times, while working on her hair, I have had the pleasure of watching Angelina Ballerina. In my favorite episode, Angelina is entering a dance competition and her competitor is a hip-hop dancing mouse. While the classical music plays, and Angelina dances, Julia sits very still. However, when the hip-hop music starts, for the opponent mouse, Julia is virtually incapable of sitting still - her hips keep perfect beat with the music while I hold on to her hair!
On a totally different note, sometimes I am so, so thankful I don't get my way in life! When we were designing this house, JD insisted in installing two dishwashers and two washers and dryers. Having recently returned from my two trips to Liberia, I balked that it was over the top and completely unnecessary. I obviously didn't fight long and hard, because I have double ovens, dishwashers, washers and dryers and I am so, so thankful!
Here's the dishes waiting their turn this morning is spite of both dishwashers being full. It's still crazy to me after growing up in a small family!
Have a blessed "Monday before Christmas."
