crazy busy weekend...

...ok...
i am hoping this is going to be post #2 of the day...i am going to be posting a scrapbooking announcement right away, so stay tuned...
this weekend was a very busy one with TWO dance Christmas concerts in TWO days for courtney and the girls!!
saturday was the Manitoba Highland Dancers' Association concert at st.james civic centre ( with a rehersal prior to it that same morning for yesterdays concert )
and then sunday was courtneys annual dance concert for her dance teachers school at the manitoba deaf centre...so it was a hectic weekend indeed!
but oh so enjoyable too....
the MHDA is making up a book for dancers over the past 20 years so this installed a large group photo to be taken yesterday at the concert ( for submission ) before we opened the doors...i took some for lynn on my nikon too, but here is one of the digital ones for a sneak peek for my dance mom friends!!

...and here's a few shots during the concert...
EXCELLENT performance you girls!!!
us moms sure do feel proud seeing you dance with your hearts up on that stage!!
