The Poetry of Music

Better late than never...

Allison's 4th grade winter concert was titled "The Poetry of Music". The 4th grade chorus sang many great songs, the choir chimes ensemble made beautiful music, and the advanced recorders performed as well. Allison was chosen as a soloist and she was brilliant! (You can thank Madison for not taking any pictures during Allison's performances.)

Oh yeah - here is the opening scene to "Alice In Wonderland, Jr." Just thought I'd throw that in there for fun!

Allison's spring concert is coming up in May! Check back for more pictures of Allison singing, playing the recorder, and performing with the choir chime ensemble.

Easter 2010

Easter was a treat again this year! The kids had a blast coloring eggs - and decorating them!

These are the creations from the "monsters" kit of egg decorating.

On Easter morning, the kids went searching through the yard for all of the eggs that the Easter Bunny hid. The EB was very generous this year with his eggs - 135 in total.

Baskets were filling quickly...

You had to have a sharp eye...

Kasey thought that the egg hunt was the best!

Allison agreed.

Lunch time brought family and friends for outdoor fun and games - and lots of eating!

The kids made Uncle Andy play hide and seek.

There was quoits being played as well. (I was victorious twice that day!)
Kris and Susan joined the fun - quoits, pool, pinball, bike rides, and kickball. Kenny and Renee were too busy in Vegas celebrating their recent engagement to join the fun. (Congratulations!)
Here is picture of everyone completely stuffed!

Thanks for all of the fun - and the great food, chocolate, candy, treats, and baked goods! We all gained 10 pounds that day!
