I love how it turned out…despite the small hiccup when  I fell off a chair while putting the fairy lights and had a minor concussion… but it’s all good now. 🙂 Oh…the things I do…

Dreamcatcher Party Design Board

I’m planning Chloe’s 11th birthday (yay!) and the theme she chose this year is “sleepover”. So I came up with dreamcatcher as an inspiration to design the invitation and decorate the house.

Shane’s First Travel Basketball Game

December 3rd, 2017 | Category: family, shane

Today was Shane’s first official game and it was the first game I got to watch him in action. Watching basketball is a whole different experience than soccer. It’s faster, exciting, and fun but also very nerve-wracking as these boys make full body contacts. Shane did very well. While he doesn’t really go after the ball very aggressively like other boys, he shoots really well. He scored two 3 pointers today.

1 min before the game was about to end, his coach sent him out to the court. Someone pass the ball to Shane and when he got the ball, an opponent teammate literally “trucked” him full force.  He fell. Hard. I heard people gasp as we all watched him go down. He got up and walked off to his bench and turned his face to the wall. I could tell he was crying. Oh. My. Goodness… Thankfully he was fine and nothing was broken but boy was that intense! So, how many more games does he have??

Here’s a video of him scoring:

Chloe sang at the Christmas tree lighting event at Borough Hall this afternoon. They sang beautifully. 🙂

She even got to get on the fire truck!
