***Goodnews: My sister Mary and her fiance have discussed their potential move to Kiev, Ukraine and after much thought have told NATO that they can't take the job! I would've really missed her. We all would have, although I know we'd still talk often. I'm glad to have them on the same continent!

...and the cute lil girl in turquoise third from the right, once the video starts playing (when it's "still" she's the 2nd from the right).
A few beautiful rhubarb stalks!
We went to a birthday party this weekend. There was a report of "missing" candy...here is one of the detectives that helped solve the case: Lasagna for dinner!
I sliced up zucchini and layered it in there....

I'm going to print a thumbnail of this photo...
...to put on this ATC I made yesterday. It's the first time she's had curlers in her hair. I think she's so cute. Unfortunately, her hair is so straight (and beautiful, but the teacher wants them to have curly hair for the recital)....that it didn't last long at all. Andrea brought over her hot-curling iron but that didn't last either (we added mousse and hairspray, too).
P.S. An ATC is an "artist trading card." Usually 2.5 x 3.5" the same size of a playing card (as in a deck of cards) that folks started decorating and trading just for fun. I have joined a few swaps, but really love to make them for myself. A mini work of art, doesn't take much time & I add it to my sleeve of cards (7gypsies manufactures a holder, or put them in a small box....or you can get a baseball card sleeve to go in a binder, if you like)!

A happy mother!
My little ninjas with their sensei. Usually either Rob or I take the girls to karate, but thankfully we both went on Saturday. We weren't sure about the day of their promotion, but turned out to be a perfect day!

It's our parish feast day! We celebrated St. George today and his life is really fascinating. It bothers me that some call his battle against the dragon a legend. In school, why was I taught evolution? Why did my science teachers explain the Big Bang? Do they all assume we already know how God made the earth? Unfortunately, I think many people don't hear or read the Bible, which is really the oldest book! Yes, facts are great, and I have to rely on faith for many things, but this definitely seems more logical to me!Juliana, Hannah and Olivia busy creating together. We played outside a lot this weekend. Jumped on the trampoline lots and lots!Rob and our girls posing for me...we had a fun time trying to fly our kites, it was very windy, but the wind wasn't constant (that's what you get for living in the suburbs, too many houses in the way).

I got some neat recipe cards...
My sister, Mary, is moving to Kiev, Ukraine (her fiance just got a job there) later this year! Part of me is jealous, she's a world traveller, I wish I could do the same, but having young children, my husband is very protective...of them and me, too.Practicing on stage....ballet recitals are in two weeks!
Joscie, my scrapping friend from Hawaii, is featured here: http://www.makingmemories.typepad.com/ I love the page she designed! She's awesome and inspiring. Congratulations, Joscie!
