...and here's a few family things to share with you since my last post...
for those of you who know tyler well, you would know about "Bunny".
Bunny was a gift when he was a newborn and since then, has become inseperable from tyler. wherever he goes, Bunny goes too...and apparently Bunny has taken a liking to reading
TWILIGHT with tyler!!!
...Jan, 20 was courtney's very first Band Concert from school. she plays the clarinet and it was great hearing her play in her full 'symphony' at school!! Great job to all her bandmates!

...jan. 21 was another fun night. i was asked by Concordia Village ( where my grandparents live ) to put together a performance in celebration of Robert Burns....
so i complied!
thank you to courtney, kailey and alex for all their beautiful dancing and willingness to come out and give a great show to a wonderful bunch of golden oldies!!
and thank you to kevin ( alex's brother ) for joining us in this performance and sharing his awesme talent on his bagpipes!! the show was a great sucess and enjoyed by everyone...

Gorgeous Layouts Kim! You have such a talent, both in the photography and in the layouts afterwards. Sigh. Love the photos of the kids as always. The girls looked beautiful dancing and I am glad that they could entertain some nice people that night.

OMG Kim, I so love the layouts! You are amazing. The reflections album turned out sooooo nice too!

What you did with that doodle paper is so awesome! WOW! What a difference, before and after!

You are so inspiring!

All of it was AWESOME.
Your mom looks so happy.
That black and white paper was cool after you colored in the lines....


P.S. Can't wait for next hall crop, hopefully I will be able to make that one.
