Dance Saturday

Wow, last night was fantabulous!!!! I went to the Prom at CHOC with my friend Kelly, and we met up with Katie and Daniel. It was oriental themed. It was decorated so much,  it was hard to recognize a place I go to every week.  We danced, ate, and played black jack. It was super fun. The four of us probably looked like idiots dancing alone to the Chicken Dance. But it was way fun. I cant wait until next year.  After the prom, Kelly and I went to the cast party for my sisters' dance show.  

Megan in center

Shannon on the far end.  She is usually the smallest in her classes.

Megan and Shannon had two very good dance shows yesterday also.  We have more photos that we will post sometime this week.  The girls did very well, and it is so nice to see their efforts of the year on stage. (Even if I am watching it from the wings!)

After so much time and effort getting this show together, we are ready for a vacation!  We are leaving for Florida in the morning and we'll be gone until the 14th of July.  We are visiting my sister, Jenny, there and my other sister, Tracy from Oregon will also be there, so it will be fun to see everyone at once.  The girls are looking forward to spending time with their cousins.  I am taking my laptop, so we be updating from there.  Kelly of course, is looking forward to two weeks with no doctor appts, labs, or treatments.  It is a break that will be good for her.

Hi Kelly - you look beautiful! It brought tears to my eyes. That is a great dress! I was so happy to see pictures of Megan and Shannon - as the shortest always at the end (or the very beginning of a line) I could appreciate the comment about where Shannon was standing/dancing :)

I hope you have a wonderful vacation and visit in Florida with your family. We have had some very hot and humid weather on the East Coast and I hope that gets better before you arrive.

Dear Kelly,

You looked fabulous! Your sisters looked great in their tutus, too!

Have a wonderful trip to Florida. There's a musical performance at the Mahwah Library. We may be able to go, if I get enough work done today. If so, we'll see your Aunt Denise.

Take care,

Hi Kelly and Family,
As I'm writing this, you are on your way to Florida, or maybe you guys are already there!!! In either case, I hope the ENTIRE Laude family has the BEST time visiting with family! And Kelly, you really did look fantastic in your Prom dress! It sounded like a very fun evening! And I'm sure Megan and Shannon did a WONDERFUL job dancing their dances at the recital. Sounds like you all had a fun and busy weekend. Enjoy being surrounded by those who love you!

Hey, This is the DJ from the CHOC Oncology Prom. I am glad to hear you had fun. That's the 7th year I have done the Prom with CHOC, and as a former cancer patient myself it is good to see everybody getting a chance to go out and have fun. Make sure you go again next year!
