Catching Up

Hi all!  Long time no talk huh?  Things have been non-stop busy around here so I had to take a break from card making & blogging.  You know, I don't like to hurry (hence the blog name) or be rushed, so something had to give.  I promise to get back to posting cards soon.

I recently returned from Hawaii.  I made a quick trip there for my grandfather's funeral.  It was certainly bittersweet.  The best part was spending precious time with all my extended family that I have not seen in years.  It's too bad that it usually takes a funeral for families to really gather around and spend quality time together.  I did manage to grab a quick breakfast with Nadine on my last morning there, but I forgot to get a picture of us together.

Once my plane landed back here I hit the ground running with the work and the girls' activities.  This weekend my oldest daughter had a show choir competition in Ohio so I got to meet up with Lynn, her husband and adorable son Collin.


Her son Ryan is also in a middle school show choir.  It was great to see him perform.  Their group was amazing!  Their show was my favorite performance of the day.  Here are Ryan and my daughter at the end of the day.  After I took this photo, my daughter's friends kept asking her who that cute boy was and how she knew him:)


Here's a group shot of our show choir.  They did such a great job this weekend -- Grand Champions!

I've definitely missed you posting, but now I see why! You've been very busy! How neat that you got to see Lynn and her son :) I love the comment your daughter's friends made about the "cute boy." I'm sure his friends were saying the same thing about your daughter...she's gorgeous! And you're right it is sad that it takes a funeral to get family together, I'm sorry for your loss :(

Your daughter is just a gorgeous girl.....so grown up. I think one of the great joys of this hobby is finally meeting up with some of my blog friends....I had the chance to meet Lynn too and she's a sweetheart!
