It's a Party in the USA (yes I am referencing a Miley Cyrus song, so what?)

It seems like lately even after a long day of school, soccer and ballet the kids still have the energy for a pre-bedtime Funny Nose dance party. The other night the kids really sweetened the deal by coming out of their rooms dressed up and ready to shake it:

Then Joe took it to another level by breaking out leftover glow sticks, turning out all the lights and putting on a techno mix. Yep, the kids and I were glowsticking. It was a rave Funny Nose style.

And speaking of dance, I have to tell you about the epic fail that was the decision to let Jadyn take hip/hop on top of her other activities. WAY TOO MUCH! Every week she has shown a steady decline in her ability to make it through 2 hours of dance on Thursdays culminating last week when she forgot her stuffed animal cat that she wanted to do the lullaby dance with at ballet. Cue 2 hours of whining, crying, disrupting the class, me taking her out of the studio for a stern talking to, thinking I had gotten through to her and then lather, rinse, repeat. Let's just say now that September is over, no more hip/hop for now.

At least no official hip/hop class. Because the impromptu dance parties are here to stay.

Yay for dance parties! And now you know what she can handle and won't have to what if it.

CUTE! My boys love to do dance parties, too, but they don't have half of J&J's swagger.

We do dance parties in the kitchen whenever the kids request them. Michael likes to sing the song "Dynomite". Jake and Jadyn look like they are having a great time!

Adorable pic! I know Jake probably would not like to hear this, but they really look like they could be twins there :)
