Last night we went to our son's Spring Recital at school. It was so cute to watch all the kids sing their hearts out. I just love watching the kindergarteners. They are so animated. Well, on top of all the fun of watching them perform they had a raffle for some themed baskets. They had four different themes to pick from. I decided right off the bat that I was putting my tickets in for the princess basket & the other half in the chef basket. I told my hubby & daughter I was winning that princess basket...it would be mine! LOL Well lo & behold guess who won it...thats right ME ME ME! I was so excited when they called my name. Here is a pic of it & all the loot that was inside. Look at all that bling & a tiara to top it off. No complaints here. Hahaha Now if only I could predict my winning the HGTV Dream House on Sunday. *LOL* Well a girl can dream cant she??
Adding a few pics of the recital....love this age (10). Still growing into their ears & teeth. Gotta love em. ;)
Travis being goofy. Second one is Jim & I with Trav. It was a patriotic themed recital. :)
I have a ton of orders that I have to get done. Should be working all weekend to fill all of them. Everything is going good. I will check in tomorrow. I want to add a goodie from Carm. I just didn't want this post to be any longer than I already made it. Have a great friday night. *Ü*
