Too much going on

There is so much to share about what has happened in the last few weeks I will try and keep it short and to the point.
Gemma competed in the West Coast Dance Festival during the holidays and placed 2nd in the Novice - Modern Jazz section for Under 16's, so proud of her! She has worked so hard since the beginning of the year on her solo routine and improved so much. Well done Chicken!

Renae has been studying during the holidays ready for exams in 5 weeks time and also preparing for her first game of soccer which was yesterday - she played well and will only improve as weeks go by. Although perhaps we will remember the sunscreen next time, the weather was beautiful and warm which took it's toll on the players.

Renae's dress has arrived for the Year 12 Ball (16th May) and we have had our first fitting and will hopefully pick it up by next weekend.

Last weekend was a surprise 30th for our friend Luisa at another friends house (Cathy's) around the corner from home - the surprise part was a huge success - she had no idea!

The Girls!

The Boys!

Friday morning I went to Taylor's in the Swan Valley with Lis and Morganne for breakfast for an early birthday celebration and she gave me this lovely book which I am reading very slowly as I hope to make it last as long as I can - just beautiful.....Thanks Lis!

I went to Tomorrow's Memories on Friday night for their moonlight crop and they are celebrating their 5th Birthday during the month of May. Be sure to check out their blog or website and join in the festivities coming up! Lots of specials and prizes to be won.

Today is my 43rd Birthday and last night Steve cooked dinner (Minestrone Soup and Italian Meatballs and Fetuccine) and we had some friends around to celebrate.
This is what my gorgeous husband gave me......I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Swarovski "Sparkle" ring - girl's gotta have some bling once in a while!
These are what my gorgeous girls gave me for my Pandora bracelet - nearly full now, just a few more charms to go!

Steve is off to Albany for work today for the next 3 weeks (home on weekends though thank goodness), I'm going to miss him lots but I also have plenty to keep me busy!

There hasn't been alot of crafting around here lately with all the other stuff going on, but I'm hoping to get back into things this week as I have a few committments that have fallen behind schedule.
Oh and I hope to make an exciting announcement sometime this week too so stay tuned!!!! Something to do with a photoshoot by me that you could win.

Well I think that just about covers it. Until next time take care and enjoy your week.
