so much time and so little to post - Strike that - Reverse

Well i feel like so much has happened and i haven't posted any of it. There are so many untaken pictures of jamie i wish i had... like her yellow overalls she found at Value Village and just had to buy, she wore them to exams today and then didn't keep them on long enough for me to catch a picture (i'm sure she'll wear them again). But she did have her GRADE 9 GRAD!!! i heard she looked hot and i was sad that i had to work late and i didnt get to see it in the flesh.. but there are a few pictures. i can't believe JJ is off to highschool next year!

The other night J-bird made some sushi for her Performing Arts class with Mom and Jenelles help. Thanks to Aunty Wilma for the great idea. These sushi are great even for those who don't like it, made from rice krispies, swedish fish and fruit roll-up. Mmm!


For one other Jamie picture i did get.. i gave her a caramilk the other day, and what did she find inside? A GOLDEN TICKET!! and we even sang a little bit of the song from the movie (the old one.. where they can't sing so well) it was a good time.
(the ticket says something like 'WILLY WONKA'S GOLDEN TICKET. CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE FOUND A GOLDEN TICKET. PLEASE COME TO MY FACTORY ON THE 1ST of DECEMBER. LOVE WILLY WONKA')


Sunday and Saturday night i got to go to the girls voice recitals. Those things always are good for a laugh.. with the kids who you would never recommend to try out for American/Canadian Idol, but have actually made progress since last recital and the whle element of musical theatre always hits a soft spot in my heart. i was of course pleasantly surprised with how my talent my sisters do have. i will post some clips of them singing.. GOOD JOB GIRLS!

This guy was one of my favorite things about the recital.. partly because he sat with this same face ( i believe he is truly in awe of the performers) the whole time. Just imagine that he was tip of the iceberg of all the entertainment.

This video is of Jamies friend Zander dressed up as a woman singing "welcome to the 60s" from hairspray. It was really good and funny, but i think i like the girls dancing the best ;)

Jamie looks gorgeous, she looks great in that dress! And ask you Dad...was that "Mr. Grant"....? okay, I know it wasn't but... I'm sure the talent was probably jaw dropping but I bet the guy was congested and could only breath with his mouth open, I've been there before...not pretty...
