FOUND: long lost blogger...

that's right, I'm back...did ya miss me? Were you popping in for updates only to see the same thing over and over for the last 3 weeks? Sorry about that people...I have a very good reason for being MIA...one of my duties as the Director for hockey is to organize the home tournament. This took way more time and effort than I ever thought it would and what bit of a life I had before the planning stages soon disappeared and my life was consumed by phone calls, trips to the city, emails, schedules and conflicts and on and on. It all went into one weekend...this past one and all I can say is... phewf I'm glad it's over!! Overall it was a pretty successful event and Reilly's "A" team won all three round robin games as well as the final! It was a very exciting weekend of hockey but an exhausting one as well. I pretty much went to the arena Friday night and stayed there till Sunday night. Anyway, it's over and will look great on my resume...lol!!
Here is the best pic I could get of my hockey man all dressed up heading to the rink (he was doing a pretty good job of hiding himself behind his sticks and his bag...lol) I think he looks so handsome in his pink shirt and tie...how about you?



had the camera out taking random shots and self portraits...didn't know till I downloaded them to the laptop that Gavin was giving me bunny ears...little bugger...lol

Brian and Carsyn...bonding...lol

bunny ears must have been the theme for the day as Gavin gave them to Zack too

and last but not least...I'm finally sharing some scrappy goodness with you all. Most of these layouts were completed before the tournament planning began and this week I am getting back into a schedule where I have time to do more so here ya go...have a peek










I will be making my rounds to see what you've all been up too...but until then, remember "a day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplin
