Sunday bike rides

Sadera & TJ getting the bikes ready for a FUN bike ride. Now none of us has ridden our bikes in over a year this should be good for sore muscles tomorrow!! Our goal was to work off all the food we ate at Redfish for lunch. Daddy John stayed home to sleep as he had to play for 6pm Mass.
Jenn showing her overwhelming enthusiasim for riding!

And of course me, they didn't think I could ride so there Kids! Sadera was so happy to wear her bike helmet NOT!! Kids had a good afternoon with their Uncle TJ. He even let them climb all over his jeep.

This is my ugly ugly ugly bottlecap doll. The only cute thing about her is her legs. The make n take was fun...but bottlecap dolls are not for me.

Sunday in review

Our first trade of our Altered Books was held today. Victoria hosted the meeting and 6 of us traded our books. These are the pics of my book before I handed it off to the next artist to complete pages in my book. At the end we will have 3 2-page layouts in our book by each memeber

Altered Artist Canvas Class

Colleen surprised us with a class at the Creative Quest in Glendale. From 10:30 to 4:30 we painted and altered art canvases and made two handmade albums to fit inside the book. This was a great class and oh so much fun with Colleen. By the way 70 + pounds since Oct 13th. You are doing great Colleen.

Bumps in the Road

This has been a very stressful last two days. Did you ever stop and think that life goes on and we all become very complacent with our routines, social and family lives? We take for granted alot of our family and friends. Well Thursday there was a big bump in the road for me, Not one of those annoying speed bumps but a big bump. My father was rushed to the hospital with what they thought was a heart attack. What a sudden heart stopping moment when my sister called. Long story short it turned out not to be his heart instead of a very badly infected gall bladder. He has had surgery and is doing much better than expected. A great eye opening lesson for me to appreciate and show that appreciation for family, friends and those that are close to us. Bumps in the road can happen at any time no matter how well we think we are prepared.

Devine Memories Grand Opening

Colleen and I made it over early to the Grand Opening of Devine Memories. Wow what a difference in the store not only in the physical decor but the staff and owners are so friendly. The whole atmosphere is one of welcoming, warm friendly. The floors are to die for, but then I'm partial to wood flooring. We got to meet Heidi Swapp. What fun. Great make and take.

Almost Friday

This has been a crazy, busy, chaotic week for only being 4 days long!! I can't believe how busy CGRMC is and how busy we are. It is good to have Dr Letarte back and today was a better day. Below are the pics for my family as requested and the pics of my latest class Altered Book Club with Beth, Colleen, Victoria, Linda. Class meets on the 15th and I have 2 more spreads to complete before I hand off my book to someone else. Guess what I will be doing this week-end??
