Yao Ming

All 7 feet 6 inches of Yao Ming came to town this weekend just to watch Colleen dance at the Timberwolves game. He came out early from half time to watch her dance. He’s the tallest dude in the NBA – his knees are taller than most of the girls on the dance team. Here Colleen and Yao are…

You Can Danz did the half-time show. It was the best half-time show I’ve seen all year! Before the game we got Crunch’s autograph (the mascot), and a poster of the Timberwolves dancers that several of them autographed (woo woo), and petted real sharks, and got balloon animals…attendance is way down so they really go out of their way to make it fun for the kids.

Megan had her (oral) surgery today. The actual procedure took 2 hours, but we were there from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. – everything went fine. Megan did great. Final tally was 6 caps plus another 7 cavities filled. We are still in shock that this happened, especially since we brush her teeth every day and the other two kids had no troubles at all in this area. You learn many times as a parent not to judge other parents because soon enough you will be in a seemingly absurd situation that others may not understand. We’re glad this is behind us now :). Here’s the before picture of her pearly whites.

And here’s an after picture of the mad grillz now in Megan’s mouth:


I’m already back from my annual trip to Vail. I had another great year out there. Thank you to Beth’s p’s for coming up and helping while I was gone!!! We really needed their help – thank you!!! Day 1, I wore sunglasses all day. Day 2, it was foggy, snowy, and even rainy throughout the day. Day 3, we woke up to 8 inches of new powder and had a blast all morning. It was a beautiful day of spring skiing. That’s what it is all about. Here I am at the bottom of Sweet N Sour, I believe. Look at that beautiful trail of perfect S’s behind me…keep looking…closer…

    I love that picture of Colleen dancing for Yao Ming. That’s great that he was out there watching.
    Love Megan’s new grillz… can you imagine?
    Glad to hear you had fun in Vail… that picture looks like you superimposed yourself in it… going uphill. I’m not convinced that’s you.

    I tried to comment last week with my laptop but got an error message & it wouldn’t go out.

    That was really nice of Yao Ming to come out early just to watch Colleen dance. Too bad he doesn’t look realy happy. Maybe because he was lonely. I wish we could have been there to join him. Colleen always looks so nice and in step.

    We’re glad Megan’s dental work went well. Good thing you caught it early enough for them to get everything fixed up. I bet her pretty smile is even nicer than before. Not sure I like the grillz, especially the wording – hope you at least got a good deal on them…

    Glad you had a nice time in Vail and really nice of Beth’s parents to come up and help out while you were away. I tried on the laptop and on this computer and can’t enlarge the skiing picture. I agree with Katherine’s assessment and can’t tell if the dark area to the right is a shadow or a ski???

    Cell phone picture – it’s the best I can do. Shadow or a ski – common – mine are so close together they look like I’m only use one ski anyway. I was making beautiful s’s all day long in fresh powder – that’s all you need to remember!

    Sorry for mistaking your shadow for a ski. I was finally able to enlarge the photo and can see clearly the dark area to the right is a shadow.

    The enlarged photo only seems to show one ski – as you say, your skis must be so close together it only looks like one ski..?..maybe the snow bunny in front is hiding the other ski.
