A PROUD MOMMY!

Good morning all! It has been CRAZY around here the last few days - both my kids had awards ceremonies, my son is trying out of a club basketball team so that three hours every night and we are installing electric line at the house for the garage - so lots of things going on and no time for my stamp room :-( I actually WILL have something to share later today or early tomorrow but right now I want to share pics of my daughter receiving her Principal's award for straight A's - whoohoo Kayla! This was her second report card since we moved to CA and she was always on the Principal's list in Florida. Well, she missed it by one point last time (she got an 89 in math) and was really upset so this made her totally excited! And of course, mommy and daddy were both at the awards ceremony to clap and cheer and embarrass her (so she says although she was smiling so it could not have been THAT bad - LOL!) So, here are a few pics of my little girl receiving her award. the first one shows Kayla receiving her award from her teachers with the principal on hand to also congratulate her. They are both awesome people and we are thrilled she is in such an awesome school! The lighting was not the greatest in there so I apologize for the poor lighting on them. Thanks for indulging a proud mom - I just can't help myself! As for Tyler, he won the citizenship award and made the honor roll but as it turned out, we did not get ANY pics because the note we received gave us the wrong time and it was over before we got there - I was NOT a happy mom! But, we are proud of both of our kids for doing so well and adapting to CA so quickly (much better than their mom, I might add!)
FACT#29
My favorite type of movie is a thriller. Not a horror, but a really good mystery thriller with lots of action. There have been some good ones lately and I am anxiously awaiting for a few more to come out - I actually enjoy the ones based on books I have read if they are done well - which the James Patterson series (Along Came a Spider, Kiss the Girls) was. I also like a good romantic comedy if it is not too cheesy. In fact, I am hoping to go see Fool's Gold tonight if all goes as planned!

I will be back later - enjoy your weekend!!!!
