yesterday was a very exciting day for courtney and i...
i got to come along as a parent helper on her field trip with school to go to the Concert Hall and see / hear the WINNIPEG SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA perform MUSIC IN MOTION!!!
..one of the highlights, as you hear now ( is your music turned on? ) was a performance from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie!!
there were many different dance schools performing throughout the show as well...
Royal Winnipeg Ballet ( i have never seen LIVE ballet before ), different younger dance schools throughout winnipeg, an AIR DANCER ( wrapped in flowing 'ribbons' from the ceiling and air dancing - soooo cool! ) and a SPECTACULAR performance ( our total favourite, no doubt ) was when the WSO played "Lord of the Dance" and there was an Irish dance group dancing...
WOW....just in awe still from the whole thing!
I would definately go again any time and would highly recommend going yourself!
so it was a very pleasurable morning to attend the Symphony for our first time together!
( courtney and her music teacher who planned this event for the kids....THANK YOU SO MUCH!! )
this past saturday was an early birhtday party for my little God-daughter, taylor, and also the the girls' first time trying out 10pin bowling!! a fun afternoon!
HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY SWEET P!!!!!
( heeheehee...i'm serious about those beautiful pink cowboy boots Nikki...if you can't squeeze them on her...i will buy them from you for courtney!!! GIGGLE ...they're soooo dang cute! )
we went for a BBQ at my mom's and also celebrated my niece airiel's 17th birthday as well!
so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU TOO AIRIEL!! ( stop growing up so fast, will ya? )
AWWWW....love this one!!

...and last but not least...
i taught a sketches class monday night and thought i'd share the 3 layouts we based our sketches on. everyone picks their own color theme and papers, but the sketch itself is to be done the same as sampled. all basic supplies are provided for the class, and the embellishments as well. all you need to bring to sketch classes is your photots, adhesives, paper trimmer and a smile!
