Photo Post

Hi there,

I know it's been a while, and I apologize.  Life has been full of dentist appointments, chiropractor appointments, the Canadian National Dance Championships (CNDC), Tap Class, Piano lessons, and all the regular day to day things.  It's a busy time of year, but I really do love it.  I'm so glad I get to be around for all of it.  The girls did great at CNDC last weekend.  Eden's duo earned a High Silver, and third place.  Théa trio earned a Gold, and 1st place (they actually competed against each other, in the same category).  Théa  trio also earned 1st overall for their age category.  The Jazz Large Group routine earned a gold, and 1st place.  And, the Hip Hop Large Group routine earned a Silver, and 3rd place. We are so proud of all the girls for giving it their very best effort, supporting one another, and representing Kick It Dance Studio so well.  We are going to need some sort of cabinet to keep the all these trophies in if they continue to do so well.  You should see these things they're almost as big as the girls.  Here are some pix of the kiddos

These girls are troopers, alll in all we spent about 25 hours total at the Convention Center, with in a 3 day period. 

After the competition D thought it would be fun to take everyone to see...

Such a sweet, funny, family friendly movie.  The best line of the whole thing for me was: "you may not have had a nice beginning, but that doesn't have to determine who you become" or something to that effect.  It made me think about the protective love of our God.  If it weren't for His hedge of protection on my life, I truly don't believe that these words would ring rue for me.  If anything, I think the exact opposite would be my reality.  A world full of hurt, hate, and innumerable poor choices.  Praise the Lord for His loving-kindness. 

I've haven't done too much scrapping, but I did manage to get a couple of things done.  This one was for a sketch challenge by Jessy over at The Nook.
Taken on Winnipeg Beach last summer.  I plan on putting a little letter to her in the envelop.
In more Nook news.  The wonderful DT had a great idea for a Card Kit exchange.  Everyone who wants to take part must put together a few contents with which to make a card, or two, or three...  The sender must include certain items like patterned papers, and some mandetory add-ons, but can feel free to add as much as they'd like.  Here's the package  I put together for my lovely friend Danni. 

She received it last Thrusday, and said she loves it all.  Yeah me.  I can't wait to see what she creates with it, the girl is a card godess :)

I made a card of my own for our neighbours two down from us on the cul-de-sac.  They moved in on the weekend.  I plan to deliver some fresh baked muffins to them on Friday, I'll include this with the goodies.
Remember this?

That flower got so much attention over at the Nook.  The ever so talented  Ingrid liked it so much that she made one of her own to use on a project she showcased during the Zva Creative Blog hop.  How cool is that?!  And being the classy lady that she is she gave me credit for it all over the place just to be sure her readers (on the Nook forum, and on her own blog knew the idea came from someone else.  Sweet.  Made me feel good, and just thought I'd share.  

That's it for now.  I need to go and practice my Tap Routine, before fetching the girlies from school.  Only 2 more weeks until recital - eek.

Have a good one all.  Thanks for stopping by.

First of all, your girlies are adorable! I'm sure mine will look/act a lot like that in a couple of years. Second, awesome projects! Your neighbors will be thrilled with their welcome present. And how cool is Danni?! Awesome RAK! ;)
