Before I left for the out of town hotel- followed closely by AZ, Curly took this video of Wilhelm shadowing me during my workout. He makes it look so easy. Actual names are spoken here. Too cute not to share.
Mini watched Curly's dance competition all day from home on the livestream. She's usually with us, so this was unchartered territory. She was technically babysitting for Wilhelm.

with her little charge.
She video chatted with us a few times throughout the day. Each time as we shared how the day was going and who was a standout dancer, Wilhelm's large head would suddenly appear RIDICULOUSLY close to the screen - inserted from the side, as if he was floating. Slightly creepy. I wish I'd taken a screen shot of it, because Curly and I were doubled over.
Wilhelm apparently dug out a toy laptop that no longer works and set it up next to Mini's laptop on the family room floor. Once when a dancer fell on stage, Wilhelm said in his robot tone: BYE-BYE, ALL DONE. Mini died.
Mini said most of the family huddled around her laptop and saw Curly's final round. This prompted the males of the family to send texts and question why she hadn't gotten more air-borne. Curly just rolled her eyes and explained that that's not the kind of dance for flying around the stage - more about footwork.

after he watched Curly dance.
Spelling isn't his thing.
Me: PLEASE STOP SENDING ME SCREENSHOTS OF ME HUNCHED OVER MY CAMERA, YOU FREAK. (Then I took a screen shot of Mini flipping me the bird).
I was super tired, but Curly was bouncing off the walls. I finally begged her to let me take off her wig, which is usually the first thing she wants to do. Too excited.
Once back home, Tank stopped at Nothing Bundt Cakes and brought Curly home a treat to congratulate her. Very sweet and unexpected from Sir-joke-a-lot.
Has anyone ever snapped photos of you when you weren't aware you were being photographed (ie the livestream photos Mini took of me)? I think it could be considered a form of cruel and unusual punishment.
Blogger was being difficult because I was trying to add so many photos to this post . . . so they are bringing up the rear.

We are CRAZY about it.

this screen shot from her home

half expected her to pop up
in the back of the room.
This is TOO-TALL Curly

who was also called up
as a world qualifier.
