My McKinley Girl

I just love my sweet pea - McKinley. She is CONSTANTLY entertaining me. Don't know how many of you read my newsletter a couple months ago, but I've been listening to classical music more lately and McKinley hears it and makes up a story to go along with the music. She's constantly asking "what's happening mom?" and we will come up with elaborate stories about different people and things to go with the music.

So, here's a video of her making up a story to the music. Here's what (I think) she's saying: "They pushed it away! Ran Away... the snake! Helped them. The snake helped them...And then somebody comes...and then Dora comes! and says Swiper No Swiping! And then there was a mom... on the porch. They were sad...(something I can't understand) and then they're happy and they run away! And then the moster runned away!" (drama with Ireland)

2nd video: McKinley loves to dance. If I dance with her, she will often tell me that I'm doing it wrong and show me how to do it correctly. This morning Jason tried to join in a dance and she said "Dad - that is not a dance for boys!" So - here's my dancing queen:

P.S. Congrats to Luikin and Johnson - all around Gold and Silver medals! Awesome! (I still HATE the scoring, though)

Note from the last blog: So, first I want to say that I'm very sorry about your gratuation. I think things would have been different these days. I'm more independant and I would have taken a different car and stayed. Sorry.

About McKinley-- I didn't realize that she is such a drama queen (or is it Ireland?) I LOVE MY GRANDKIDS. Thanks for sharing them Heidi.
