........ that makes us even busier than December these days, concerts and end of year breakups etc etc.
Yes well November is a pretty full on and exciting time for us and very busy for our youngest Gabriella who will be featured in two concerts, the first starting with her School's Centenary celebrations- 100 years of Rangeville!!!! My mother attended this school too from years 1935 -1944 and yep though mum is still alive, in good health and only lives an hour away unfortunately will not attend, still we will have a lovely day just the same. It will be nice to get an inlook as to how things were when the school started out. It boasts number of around 800+ studends these days - a very busy and proud school.
On November the 7th they will have their school celebrations in the form of a fair etc and than at night there will be a gala performance at the Emphire where Gabriella will be singing in the special choir. The kids are all dressing up in old era clothes and I can't wait to take the photos naturally!!!!
The Following weekend Gabriella will also be performing in her 1st ballet concert - A Christmas Carol again at the Emphire. The costumes are gorgeous and I had a input towards them by making 8 beaded tiaras- quite a feat when I'm not a beader (and no I'm not taking it up as my new craft either LOL!) but the girls alll have them now and are pleased with my efforts - phew!!! Here is a few shots of these darling projects !!!! Like a lot of things they look better in real life.
Now because I'm trying to stay ahead of life's game re: scrapbooking before the insanity scheduls of December kicks in I've done my work for Piggy Tales and 3M ready for the start of November. A few more additions for my grandkids baby albums- Alexis and Logan's and a couple for our family yearly albums.
I stamped on the chipboard lettering title- LULU, to give them some extra interest!

and a card for our cousin from hubby's side of the family- Raymond's 50th

So Yeah that's my bit for the start of November and I suppose that means there is only 55 days till christmas-Yakes!!!! and guess who has barely made a mark on it as yet, hasn't helped that we've had the toughest year financially ever, thankfully Brett has work again but by gee the catch up game isn't nice hey, still we're all plugging on! I'm looking to having some sort of Christmas celebration with our family in our home this year.
Take care, love and God Bless
