Christmas Layaway

It's looking like more of a possibility this year than not.

Sissy is in dance class. There is a Winter recital coming up where the girls are to wear a long sleeved white leotard, a white skirt and white tights. They can wear their regular shoes - I always buy black shoes (we have 3 different pair: tap, ballet and modern, or jazz as it's been known in the past.) Her class is only doing one ballet and one modern routine for Winter.

I've already collected everything we need for that.

However, the Spring/Summer recital is a HUGE deal. There will be custom ordered costumes, 3 routines and Lord only knows what kind (color) shoes. The three costumes are $225.00.

I talked to the Evil Twin about it and he said, "I don't care." And that is Evil Twin speak for "Buy the damn costumes."

Normally, I'd be hedging about this, but Sissy LOVES the stage, she loves the performance. She's a 2nd child who has received so many "hand me down" toys and assorted other things, I think we can indulge her one fun activity. :::As an aside, I personally think she is the cutest in the class::: ;-)

It's no secret that I have a crap ton of work to do today, so I'm outta here. Y'all hooligans have a great Thursday!



  1. I'm betting she looks cute in those outfits. Really what is money for if not to spend on the kids?

  2. My you've got him well trained. Have you been exchanging notes with my missus?

    I'm agog. Is the telly fixed?

  3. my friend has 2 daughters in Dance and im always amazed at how much money he needs to shell out for those costumes that they wear one time and then forget about...

  4. Ron - Really! She deserves to look even cuter than she is...It's all for the kids. :-)

    Mag - The Evil Twin is a good husband and I like to spend his money. Yes, the telly is fixed - they replaced our old model DVR box.

    Slyde - I'm so cheap, I may have to buy a sewing machine and make them myself. LOL.

  5. Well, it sounds like a good use of $225 to me. But then I haven't cut my hair in 6 months because every time I go to spend the money I buy sarah a cute outfit instead.

  6. Natalie has a recital in June. Her costume was 65 and I wanted to cry.
