The Karate Kid

Last Saturday Hayden tested for his brown belt in karate. He has been taking lessons since he was 4 years old. I love how they teach the kids "stranger danger" and to kick, scream and run away just in case they ever find themselves in a bad situation. He has done very well over these last 4 years and now at 8 1/2 received his brown belt. Its a long road to his black belt, at least another 1 1/2 years, but he loves it and it has given his self confidence, balance, staminia and something to strive for. Congrats to our grandson on his achievements.

Here he is now at 8 1/2 with his brown belt.

April cards 2011

April is a very busy month and it seems there are a ton of birthdays and anniversaries. Here are some of the cards I have been busy with this month.

Saturday, April 2, 2011


I have not posted lately because a nastly little virus bug got my computer and printer and killed then both. After the funeral, I had to get the new ones set up and that seemed to take forever. Think all is well again. So, with that said...on to the winter of 2011 will do this all as one post to try to catch up.
Then Snuggles, our 9 year old minature poodle had to have surgery for a torn ligament in his leg and we are still nursing him back to health.
