 Because of the theme I painted a bunch of old cassettes her favorite color.  The cardboard that I sprayed them on looked so neat I just had to take a picture.
One finished project, the invitations!!  The inside cover has all the needed info for the party.
Gettin ready to rock 80's style!

Oh yes I did!

Proof that I went on the Northern Lights Ropes Course, when we were in WI last summer.

Not something I would normally do, but that's what you do when on vacation.

I didn't make it to the third story the second was good enough for me.

I did it!

And I don't ever have to do it again.

For the last three years Bre has participated in the AVID program.  Tonight they had an open house, the kids read poetry, did skits, a pay if forward promotion, a commercial they wrote, and so on and so on.  I loved Bres poem.


I am... an AVID student.

My friends call me ...crazy..
I keep... my secrets to myself.
I remember...nothing.

I shout...only when I'm really mad.
I am...myself.

I hear...the world go by.
I taste...all the food I can eat.
I think...about school and my friends.

I class.
I am...loving this poem so far.

I succeed.
I will...reach my goals.
I can...try to multitask.
I be tough and strong.

I sing...with all the voices of the mountain.
I am...hilarious.

I dream...of the future.
I'm afraid...of losing my friends.
I say I'm sorry...all the time.
I love...those I'm close to.

I declare for the world to hear... I will be successful, just watch me.
I am... Bre

First Ice Fishing Trip and Walleye

Over Christmas break Alex went on her first ice fishing trip.  This is her with her first Walleye, from her very first time out on the ice.  Thanks Papa, Mike, Uncle Tom, Rob, Chad and twins, Alex had a great time fishing with all of you!

Not an ordinary 1st date.

Bre had her first date!  Bre and Arion went to see Mr. Peabody and Sherman Friday night.  It was not a private date or a quiet date.  I picked the kids up from the school dance and took them to the theater.  There they were joined by myself, Alex, Mike, Matt, Arion's Mom and Dad and little Brother.  I got great enjoyment when Arions Dad started taking pictures, I love it!

From the Heart.

I just love making gifts for others.  I made the white skate Christmas decoration for my Sister Sara.

This red one for my Mom.

Lots of play food for the Bug. (pancakes, bacon, eggs, steak, grapes, radishes, eggplant, ham, doughnuts, pop tarts, toast and jelly)

I made Miss Bug a Best Buddy, that lives in a little lunch box.

Alex was able to make a mouse Best Buddy for herself.

My Mom started a cook book for Sara and I.  What a great idea, now we can learn to make some of our favorite foods.

My dear friend Amy made me this, she knows me too well.
