A Post Completely Devoted To Kelsi, Nobody But Sweet Kelsi

I'm a dancer wannabe. You know that Wannabe song by The Offspring, Pretty Fly For A White Guy?




Yeah, that's me, except I'm not a dude and I'm not a wannabe gangsta, I'm a wannabe dance'a! But pretty much the same thing right?

Since my dancing days have come and gone, I've decided to live vicariously through my niece, Kelsi. You know, like most moms who have never reached their dreams so they make their daughters achieve their goals of becoming a ballerina or pianist or professional shin kicker?




Yep, that's really a sport.

So I'm going to live my dream through Kels.

Kelsi is on her High school's drill team and she had her end-of-year dance show last week so of course I had to go! I love drill team competitions and apparently so does Brolan! He was loving the dancing and the music, it was so dang cute! Of course he was loving me more though, what baby doesn't?




I wish I was able to get some pictures of Kelsi dancing because she is amazing and I have to say she is the best dancer on her team. And I'm not just saying that because she is my niece, she is an awesome dancer and I know an awesome dancer when I see an awesome dancer and Kelsi is definitely an awesome dancer.

And guess what? She was voted to be the Captain of her drill team next year! The captain has the role of the President and Drill Mistress so it's a really big deal.




See? I told you she was awesome!!

So the tradition at these end-of-year drill team shows is to have all the dancers come out in their prom gowns, escorted by their fathers while the announcer reads a few thoughts about that dancer. So all the dancers were coming out with their fathers, some with their mothers, and when it was Kelsi's turn, she was escorted by...




Look closer at the girl in the beautiful turquoise dress...




It's Mr. Brolan Lee!


Isn't he the cutest escort ever? Sure, a little more drooly than the others but still the cutest! Kels wanted to surprise everyone and had him all decked out in this little suit with a darling bow tie and everything! She was the envy of all the girls.




Isn't my niece gorgeous? Yep, I'm a proud Auntie!


All these pics were taken with my phone so I apologize for the bad quality, but look at Bro and his cute little bow tie!




That's what I've decided his nickname should be, Bro. What d'ya think?

But this post isn't about Brolan, this post is about Kelsi!





I said Kelsi dammit!

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

Brolan is a little cutie patutie!

Congrats to Kelsi for being elected captain for next year. And I believe you when you say she is an awesome dancer!

WhisperingWriter said...

Your niece is gorgeous and Brolan is just too cute in that tux.

I also wish I could dance. Alas, I cannot and when I try people point and laugh. Ahh well.

Rebecca Jo said...

I can just hear the whole place - I'm sure it broke out in a collection of "AAAHHHH's" when she came out with little Bro as her escort!

Both Bro & Kelsei are just precious! Girlie looks super cute in that dress! And the captain? Holy cow - she needs to talk to her aunt about some dance moves! Maybe she can get you in some how next year for a cameo! I'd even wear the team Mascot outfit to get out & dance!!! Get your dance groove on!!

have you ever seen that funniest home video where the brother is doing the dance moves on the side lines??? That's totally you!!!!

Kathy B! said...

You've sure got some fabulous genes running around in Pooba land! The whole lot of you are gorgeous!!!

And clearly you got the dancing genes, too! We missed those as well... sigh.

Great pictures!

I love this post!

You know, "Drill Mistress" was my nickname in high school, but for completely different reasons.

Dari said...

How great for your neice, she is a beauty! I was a drill mistress when I was in high school and I totally wish I were still in my old dancing days sometimes...

I think Bro is a great nick name and man, is he cute!!!

Lee said...

That's so cool! I love that tradition, with the dads and prom dresses.
And Brolan looks freaking adorable. I want to hold him.
And smell his head.

No, no. Not smell his head.
But that's what my family members do. They like how babies smell.
No wonder I'm messed up.

Megan said...

Hahaha! How fun is THAT? Kelsi is gorgeous! Brolan is adorable!!

Tammy Howard said...

re: Lee - I want to smell his head

I want to smell his head, too. Is that creepy?

Gaw-geous family ya got there! Congrsts to the niece!

Jo said...

Ok first, he's adorable in that outfit.
Second, she is beautiful and yay for captain!!!
Finally, shin kicking is a sport?! I might be an althete afterall!

Debbi said...

Is it too stalkerish of me to want to ALSO live vicariously through Kelsi!?

SO cute. Bro is cute too.

Grand Pooba said...

Just so you all know,

his head smells wonderful!

And anyone can live vicariously through Kelsi, the more the merrier!

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Kelsi is beautiful - and I love her dress color. Lil' Bro is rockin the tux, girl.

What a fab Auntie you are! Did you tell them you need a special day that's just for Aunties?

Kitten said...

Your little nephew is so handsome in that tux! I'll bet the whole gym let out a collective "AWW!" when they walked down the center of the floor!

Hernandez Family said...

If I'm not mistaken weren't you the drill mistress in high school?

Carebear said...

Oh my goodness, Brolan, er, I mean Kelsi, looks so cute!!!

passionsandsoapboxes.com said...

Hurray for Kelsi. Being the mom of girls who were on the drill, cheer, flag teams I know what an honor that is and how hard she worked. Woo Hoo!

Justine said...

OMG, if Brolan isn't the cutest little boy ever, I just don't know who is! Love his name too! And wow, Kelsi is a real beauty. Too bad you didn't video her dancing!

Justine :o )

Justine said...

Okay, was just quickly skimming through some of your previous posts. You are my kinda gal. I love your writing style (maybe 'cause it's kinda like mine?) and sense of humor. So, I'm your newest follower!

Justine :o )

Mocha Dad said...

Every girls' crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man. The little dude is pretty fly.

Marissa said...

Kelly you're far too modest. I don't think dancing talent like I remember you having just disappears!!

3 Bay B Chicks said...

WTF? WTF? I am finally resuming commenting and I discover that you are not only going to Vegas this weekend (without me), but you are also coming to California!?!

Where is California are you going, Pooba, because I want to be there.

Does that make me sound like a stalker? Hmmm...that's OK. I accept who I really am.

Super cute pics, BTW. Talent must run in the family.

Your Niece is genius to have him as an escort. She's prob gonna be real president someday.

Kelsi looks absolutely beautiful. And that had to have been the cutest escort ever!

Congratulations to Kelsi! What a wonderful and adorable choice for her escort. Bro is so cute, he just makes you want to hug and squeeze and kiss him!

So Kelsi is awesome huh? Somehow I'm not convinced. You need to give her a few more props next time, lol.
