8 days?'s time to catch up!
we had our family come for cake and coffee in the evening last week for tyler's birthday. man, i still can't believe he's 6 years old already...MY BABY!!! everyone still bugs mike and i on occasion to have one more....YA RIGHT!! we are still planning on having a 'kid's party' for tyler and a few of his school pals and our friends and their kids, like we always do for the's just trying to get a date with no dancing events lately and his visitations that are hard to plan around!! soon though!

( yep, that's our little monkey!! )

...we got courtney's dance exam results last night from a week and a half ago...she got 'highly commended' on all her tests...the highest mark! ( i'm pretty sure that all her dance pals got the same marks! they're all so good! ) good work courtney!
AND....( mom's braggin' rights again....) courtney was chosen as 'swimmer of the month' by her swim coach last month! he gave her this new shiny silver manta swim cap and a sweet little write up in the manta newsletter!! so proud of her! i think only parents can relate to the earned need to share their kids' accomplishments with people....especially when they work so hard at their activities, they should be proud!!
Coach Peter says " we're number one" to courtney!!!'s my project i made at class last friday with Thelma as my guest teacher! i love how it turned out! i used pictures i took of my grandparents in Feb.2000, but they still look the same and their love is never outdated!! now i just have to decide when i want to give this to them??? maybe at easter?

...yesterday afternoon i finally sat down and stamped cute lil' envelopes to mail off receipts for the Gimli Getaway, Gone Scrappin event!! for those of you who met the date of the early bird registration you will find a $5 coupon to use in the store at the event as a little gift from me! everyone will receive an update letter for all the activities that will be going on there as well!

This is going to be so fun, I can't wait!

Looks like Tyler had a great Birthday!

I gave Grams her receipt and told her to put it in her Tote right away so she didn't forget it!
