Note how the girls and I all have Scary Liza Minelli as a Strong Resemblance...Life is a Cabaret, indeed! Love Leo and Tyra! Kata was disappointed she wasn't Ariel, the Little Mermaid.
Heeeeeere's...Ken! And the man who directed "Titanic"...one of the most predictable movies of all time...but I have to admit a love of the costumes and mostly jewelry in that flick!
Again, the Liza Thing...and Capt. Jack...and Susan Sarandon who is like a million years older than me...sigh...it's too close to Just Past My Birthday to cope well with the Age Thang. And, er, who are the rest of these babes?? Okay, Diane Lane...yes, yes, I know her...but the rest??
Three times...a Liza...and well, there's Drew...Bella, our Free Spirit!
Alex's pics kept coming up with some Really Wacky matches...this was the closest to uh, normal...my First Born...a dictatorial, movie producer, model, rapper...hmmm...for those of you who know him...it's not too far off!
Have fun doing your own Celebrity Collages...very addicting...I must say!
Another busy day. Alex's Hurricanes lost (not that we keep score 3-1) but they had fun and that's what counts in Under 8 Soccer. And Kata had her Recital Picture taken. She's a butterfly. Make sure you take the time out to look for some butterflies amongst the hurricane of activity! Oh, you knew that sentiment was going to be a stretch. Enjoy the sunshine!
All around the Limbo World...
Potato Sack races....
Cheating at Potato Sack Races?? See the foot sticking out??
Wishes do come true...especially when made on weeds
that are not on our lawn...
Alex crosses over to Bear.
Den 6. New Bear Cubs.
Proud Daddy and Proud Sissies.
Phew. What a day. We had Alex's Cub Scout end of year BBQ and ceremony at Galena Creek. Limbo, Potato Sack Races, Tug-O-War, hot dogs, burgers, watermelon and cookies. Truly a fun end of year rite of passage.
And then the rite. Our little Wolves became Bears and shed their yellow kerchiefs for light blue. Watching Alex walk over a literal bridge laden with symbolism made this Mama a little misty eyed. One week left. One week and then Summer Vacation. And as of July 9th (remember we're in that Year Round School Thang), Third Grade. Not a baby anymore. A little ol' bear cub. All I can say is "Go Bears!"
Everyone surprised me with my favorite *bucks scone and grande, non-fat latte for breakfast served with a huge amount of hugs, kisses and cards. For both occassions. My favorite present is the votive set Ken got me. When asked what are these things on the breakfast tray? He smiled sheepishly and said, "Hey, they were free if I bought 3 cards at Hallmark." Always thinking, that Mr. Riggsby. Actually, they're kind of cute. And will look perfect around the bubble bath I need to take while sipping the champagne I need to drink.
Thank you for all your well wishes. And Uncle Rick, thank you for stopping by on your way to Fallon. May you all have a Happy Moma day!
This is what we woke up to this morning...Incredible!...In the last shot above, you can't even see Mt. Rose because its covered with *snow* clouds...Normally, its towering over those homes in the foothills...Wow!
So we sit on Cinco de Mayo Eve (I *know* there's no such thing...I think?!) with snow all around.
Fortunately none of the white stuff stuck to the streets...but it does make for one interesting Spring Morn...
Hope your Spring has a lot more warmth in it and that your flowers are not as frost bitten as ours...poor little rosebuds...stay warm out there!
