My Snapshots

What have we been up to in the past month? Take a look and see:


I don't even know if I'm coming or going anymore, but this is the first chance I've had since March to catch my breath!

Ferrying Gv to rehearsals for two different shows proved to be utterly exhausting for all of us, but we managed to make some amazing memories through it all...


New dog, same desire to dress him up... 


Have you seen some of the over-the-top Pinterest parties out there? Gv got invited to one and had a blast -- this was Paris-themed and they had personal tents and pjs and slippers and berets and sleep masks and more! 


Her fabulous Oliver director did so much to turn the cast into a family -- this is her getup for Wacky Wednesday, where they raided the theater's costumes to create their outfits for the night!


I knew I'd be proud of her performance as the lead from this show, but I was still completely blown away! 


What tech week truly looks like. Rehearsals until 12:30am are no joke!


Her first time on a pony! We managed to survive birthday month in the middle of all those performances! Five celebrations to fit into it all! (Was everyone born in May, or just all the friends we know?!)


Memorial Day with friends -- and rainbows, so you know I was loving that!


Gv's been creating things out of wood for a couple years now, but G and I joined her for the first time and turned pens on the lathe!

And that wraps up April & May! I wonder what next month has in store for us...

Waaay back in the late 90s, one of my best friends and I worked our way through this workbook (several times!) and it was such a helpful tool that I worked through it with another close friend a few years later.

Because of that experience, I was really jazzed to take a look at this:

We didn't have a single children's book related to Lent (how many are actually out there in the world?), so we were excited when this one showed up on our doorstep:

My Snapshots

What have we been up to in the past month? Take a look and see:


This month flew by...


Knuckles officially became ours, and Gv's been all smiles ever since! 


We spent my big birthday at the concert of my favorite Cape Breton fiddler -- it was amazing! 


Gv showing off her dog-whisperer skills; she can put this little guy to sleep in just a minute!


 Our annual Easter family photo. Same dress (for me), different dog!

I wonder what next month has in store for us...
