home sweet home...
it's been a while since i had some free time to blog so this is gonna be a 'catch up' put the tea on and have a sit!!!
since i last posted, there's been so much going on and it's been impossible to sit and blog never mind trying to accomplish anything else that i wanted to do...
i've been having fun planning and drooling over my kits i ordered and received from COLLEEN in georgia! i love the stuff she puts together and she's got herself some great designers to help her sell her products...if you haven't already checked out her website, go and have a look!
many thanks again colleen...i can't wait to play with it all! and must check out her site for her july kit, she said there's gonna be some jenni bowlin stuff in that one!!
THE KIDS have been keeping us busy with all their school and preschool activities happening lately! i was the 'helper' at tyler's preschool on the 18th and had a fun day with the kids again! tyler LOVES being the 'star of the day' when it's my turn to be the helper! if i was 5 i'm sure i'd enjoy it too! last week i volunteered again on another field trip for courtney's class to the bowling alley! it was the grade three's wind up with their little reading buddies from kindergarten so the big kids took the little guys bowling! fun and noisy morning! and then last thursday mike, my mom, the kids and i headed out for a road trip dance competition for courtney is saskatoon, sk...i love going there with her for dance and a fun time shopping and lots of swimming in the hotel POOLS! one of my favorite little scrapbook stores is located there called JUST SCRAP IT. my mom and i had a hayday in there...
to our surprise when we arrived at the competition there was a bus full of dancers from alberta so the competition was real tuff! she danced in an "11 & under" category, but i think she was the only "& under" one in that class...she seemed so little up there with all those big girls! anyway, she danced very well, especially with dancing 3 never competed before dances to boot! she won a 1st, a 2nd, and a 4th in her dances she did and finished 3rd overall in her class!!! we are very proud of her and all her hard work ( man, i was a nervous wreck at this one for some reason ) but now i'm glad we're home safe and sound and back at our normal routine, whatever that may be....HA!!!
here's some pictures of our little trip...
stopping to stretch out legs, and of course a little photo opp off the highway...
look out comes tyler!
(by the end of the day, he was going down the same time as courtney, head first on his tummy and diving off the slide...little daredevil!)

she wanted mike to throw her...honest!! just look at the huge giggle on her face!

our beautiful little girl

...ahem...and our cute little sailor!!
these were taken after the competition outside in her SAILOR'S HORNPIPE costume!
i did a little photo shoot of her in it for a chipboard album i am making for her, but i can't show you all the pic''ll have to see the album when it's all done!!

SOOO SERIOUS!!!! ( the look of concentration!)

Hey Kim! What a great idea! Please reserve one for me to look at on Firday at class! I'm not 100% sure yet so if you have someone that wants to buy it, go ahead but otherwise I will take a look-see on Friday, see you then, can't wait!
