Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful, dedicated Moms out there. It's hard work, and you all deserve a big "thank you" today, so you know you are appreciated. I was treated to a little sleeping in, breakfast in bed, and some lovely gifts: some chocolate from a local chocolatier, flowers from a local independent florist, and a belly dancing set! The set had a CD, cymbals, and a book. I had mentioned a while ago that I wanted to go try it with a friend. It looks like such fun.... anyway, Miss Elsie, who is totally Nutcracker obessesed and LOVES Arabian Coffee couldn't wait to try out those finger cymbals. So I got her all dressed up to match the book, and she treated us to an hour long performance and then posed for a few pictures.

She takes it very seriously. I love it that she wants to wear the costumes and accessories. We have a good time dressing up and having dance parties.
Tonight, they are all cooking dinner for me... noodles of some kind!

She is just tooo cute! Tell her the lady that made that yarn you bought lived in the Middle East, and her kids were born there!

I love Arabic art, dance, food...all of it...I miss living there. I think it's cool...and you can tell her from an "expert" she holds her arms JUST RIGHT!

She is adorable! Can't wait to see the pictures of you in the costume showing us the moves you've learned. Are those photos coming soon?
