Too much to post!

Wow, life is speeding right along and little time to write about it. So many cool things to post about. If you hang in with me you will get a glimpse of what has been going on.
2 weekends ago I headed to Strafford with Mindy, Sue, Kelly, Amber, Tammy and Fermina for the Go Scrapping retreat. It was so much fun and tiring to. I stayed up way to late for my own good. It was a great chance to catch up with my friends and also to get some scrapping done. I finished a mini Halloween album I have been working on that documents Halloween starting in 2001 until now. I love how it turned out and it is so cool to see how the kids of grown and changed. I also worked on a mini album of my mom's 60th birthday to give to her for mother's day. Thanks Karen for a great weekend. I have been dying to try using wax and I got to do so with Karen during her class. It definitely sparked my interest and last week I went to play at her studio to try so more. Here is the result - not a great picture. It was so much fun and I was inspired to do more. I have another piece in the works.

Last week soccer started - Andy is lucky to be coaching both of the girls teams. I totally love watching them play sports. Thanks Andy for being a great dad and coaching the girls - they won't forget it. It will mean more than you know!

This past weekend was the the girls dance recital for Carousel. The show this year was Alice in Wonderland. Mer danced on Friday night show as a Strawberry Tart and Avery on Sunday afternoon as a Jester (it would have been better if they were both in the same show!). This dance studio does an awesome job with the recital.

Look what happened to my baby on Friday. It made me cry - just another sign that she is getting bigger. She was so excited - the first one fell out at school and the second just minutes after we got home. The tooth fairy did arrive with double the dollars! I can't believe the going rate is $2.00 a tooth, so much for $0.25.

I am so excited to say that I had my first meals of local produce last week. Do you know what these are....

I was happy to see them for sale at Vincenzo's. A total reminder of my grandpa. He used to pick them every year and sell them to Zehr's. The kids loved them. That is cool. If you guessed fiddleheads you would be right!
I also had local asparagus.

It tastes so yummy. You forget how good the local stuff tastes. My local produce source - Bailey's Local Foods is starting up in a couple of weeks and I can't wait. Interested in 100 mile diet or Bailey's Local Foods contact me and I can give you some info!
