Boogie-Woogie Dance Camps

Dancing is clearly my thing, but my parents tend to think I need a change of pace. So, I'm taking a year off from dancing and trying my hand at gymnastics. Prior to making this drastic change, they let me have the pleasure of participating in two dance camps this summer....TWO!!


Totally in the zone. Ready for dance camp.
 
 






               Stretching and getting ready to shake, rattle and roll.

You wanna  know what made the dance camps even better??? One of my besties, Isabella (remember the camera shy, Audrey Hepburn??) attended both camps with me.....Good times.



#2 Dance Camp Video
Don't even ask what happened to those ponytails. It was a long day! LOL

I had a blast in both camps and I'm so grateful my parents are exposing me to new and exciting activities. Gymnastics, here I come!

Birthday Greetings to My First Love

This is me, and I'm on my way to my first official sleepover!
Staying the night with Grandma and 2GrandZ
(they declined a photo opt because they were in their jammies, really!)
 
 This is my Daddy and guess what, it's his Birthday!!!
I'm so excited to be spending the night with Grandma and 2GrandZ, but I'm also wondering, are they going to do anything fun without me?
 
 Here they are, on their way out the door, don't you think they look a little too happy to be leaving me? Shouldn't they be crying or something?
Oh wait, I'm not crying either, hmm guess that means we all need some time apart. . .LOL

Well, we're reunited and there's even some singing!!
So, glad my Daddy had a Happy Birthday!
Love you Daddy!

Halloween Fun!!!!

For the record, I am still backlogged on my summer post. Guess that's a drawback of having an awesome life full of activities and adventures.

However, I couldn't resist quickly sharing my Halloween pictures!!! I told Mommy and Daddy months ago that I wanted to be a Mommy Penguin. They thought at some point I'd change my mind, but it didn't happen!

Gotta admit, I wasn't the most cooperative when it came to solo photos so you'll have to enjoy me and my buddies!

Hanging with The Incredible Hulk.

Chatting with my Favorite Fireman

Mickey Mouse and Jake the Pirate are totally photo ready.

Audrey Hepburn was a little camera shy.

 
Once I got my face painted I was somewhat cooperative for this pic. 
 
  My girls didn't dress up! They did come and hang out so I guess I'll let them slide. Costume or not, they were still uber cute!!

        

Hanging with the best neighbors ever!!!!
I'm smiling like that because Mr. Don just gave me a great big handful of candy (yum), and Ms. MaryAnn gave me a bracelet. They spoil me!

 
I know, still not a solo shot, but at least you can get a good view of my costume, and my Daddy makes the picture even cuter.
 (clearly a Daddy's girl)

A Visit from Pop Pop


I'm getting my fair share of granddad visits this year, and loving every minute of it.

Pop Pop came all the way from ATL to visit me!
(ok maybe "us")
 
 

 
 After a few camera trade-offs someone was gracious enough to take a group pic of us!
Three Generations of Campbells!!!

Swimming Lessons

 
Summer fun continued with swimming lessons.  In preparation for swim class mommy braided my hair with beads for the first time. (teaching me early women don't play when it comes to water and their hair).
              
                               
 
Swimming Class was a blast!!  It was a family affair, Drew Drew, Lukie and Jacob were in the class also.
 
Jumping in the pool was the highlight of the class for me.

My swim classes were awesome! 

Daddy working with Jacob on his swimming techniques!

My Daddy, the best swimming instructor EVER!!! :-)

Spring Dance Recital

 If only my Chi-Town fam could have stayed a little longer. The weekend after they left was my Spring Dance Recital.

My girls and I performd "Cute As A Bug". I've learned so much in my first year of dance.  I believe, the one most important thing I've learned is, the show must go on!!  After viewing the video, wouldn't you agree?

Me and my Dance Girlfriends!





This is what Fabulous looks like!

My Family Reunion

 
 
Hey Fam! I need to apologize....every since I got my car I've been rather slow with the blog post. Sorry for the hiatus. I had the best summer EVER, and you don't have all the details!!!  Let me start with my peeps coming from Chicago to visit.

First to arrive was Granddaddy Willie. I hadn't see him since I was 1 year old!!! That's a loooooong time. The good thing is he remembered me and I remembered him so we were ready to pick right up.
 
 
Auntie Tamira and I wasted no time catching up. You see me chatting her up, right?! LOL  She gave my Mom a break on the hair thing. It was a bonding moment for us. 
 
My cousins and I couldn't wait to take my car for a spin!!

Family Day At the Zoo
 
 
The sisters Pretended to ride an elephant.
 

 
 Janay and I selected matching Doc McStuffins outfits for the zoo.
 
We had many outdoor adventures, but we also had playtime at the house. Jamari only wanted to go down the slide
 

 


                                                         It felt like there were kids everywhere, and I loved every minute of it.
The adults were having such a good time we flew under the radar on a few occasions. I mean, what other time would we get away with hanging out the sunroof!
 
During the visit, Janay watched Frozen for the first time, and she was totally captivated. She's loved it every since!




We had tons of fun and play time, but there was also work to be done. We didn't want to pass up a great photo opt! So, here we are all together, the Hudson grandkids. There's six of us now, I wonder how many will there be at the next family reunion.........




Well, that rounds up my family reunion!  I have many more adventures to share. I'll bring you up to speed in a more timely manner... hehehe





XOXO,
JOC

My New Car

I GOT A CAR FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!!
 
 I KNOW you're wondering why I'm just telling you this, to be honest, I was a little unsure of the thing.  I was fine taking pictures on it, but driving or riding in it . . was not happening.
 
Once I became more familiar with the car, I started doing test drives around the house. I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing prior to taking it to the streets.

My baby brother, Jacob, was my first passenger. He had a blast! He's too young to realize he should have been scared rolling with this inexperienced driver.

 When my cousin Janay came to visit, she took her baby brother, Jamari, for a ride. Another one, too young to know he should have been scared!
Ahhh, the innocence of youth.

Did you click on the link above and watch the video?? 
 
What does every parent tell a young driver getting their first car?
               "Don't let your friends drive this car". 

What does every young driver do when they get their first car?
             You guessed it . . . ..let their friends drive.

Parents also tell their kids:
  "don't have a whole bunch of kids in your car".

I wonder if that was the reasoning behind this two-seater purchase?   
 
I'll consider this a learning experience. Having a two-seater comes with drawbacks. . . I have at least 6 friends. I need a bigger car!!!
 
hmmmmmmmmm I wonder if they make Honda Pilots for kids.

The Garden Goddess

Well I'm at it again!  My teacher, Ms. Teddy, sent me a package of  seeds to plant. She told me to think of her as my beautiful flowers grow. She is such  a sweetie! Every child needs a Ms. Teddy in their life.




 
Daddy loaned me his tools! Check out the gloves...no calluses on these pretty hands!

 

Pour the seeds ....check
 
water the seeds.... check
Clearly, I'm a pro at gardening.
 
I hope this drought we're having in Texas doesn't affect the growth of my flowers!
