Around Our House


Hello friends...popping in with a card to share for the current Reverse Confetti sketch.  This is my first time playing along with the sketch challenge.  This card was a made to order card for my niece, Madeleine.  She'll be 22 on Thursday.  Hard to believe she is already 22!  She's away for the semester interning in Columbus, so we won't see her on her actual birthday.

With the start of the new year, here's what's happening around our house:

  • Jonathon and Ryan have started show choir season. Their first competition is this weekend (I can't wait!)  Below are a few pictures from their preview show from Saturday.  Jonathon has changed so much from last year.  Love to see his confidence grow on stage.
  • Collin is playing basketball and loving his drum lessons. We've just increased him to an hour a week (from a 1/2 hour) lesson.  Here's a video from his lesson last week. He's a happy guy when he's playing!
  • Marcel is going with the flow. He's participating in wrestling this winter...and is ready to try out for the summer play (Peter Pan) at our local stage company...we have a few months before that and baseball start.

Life is good...We're running around getting everyone where they need to be!

  11. Where to start! You RC flowers are gorgeous and Madeline is going to love that card! Can't wait until you share some show choir videos this season. LOVE Colin's video of him playing my fav song these days--the little smirk on his face while he plays and the gum chewing--fantastic. That is some serious concentration!! Hope Marcel is having fun wrestling. You kids are busy--I love it!
