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!

A gorgeous card. I love the flowers juxtaposed on the graphic design of the hearts & stripes. Beautiful!

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!

I did see this when you posted it, Lynn, but have been all over the place here! I LOVE THIS!!! Those flowers, the striped dp, the composition are all fabulous. And speaking of fabulous...your boys are about the most handsome and talented young men ever. Don't know how you keep your buttons from bursting with pride! I sure wish I could see them irl!! Have a great week sweet friend. Bev
