Well, spring is still attempting to spring out here, it's taking an awfully long time, and we are keeping ourselves busy. Work has not slowed down that much, but on the bright side, there is no news about the 300+ layoffs that were supposed to take place, nor are there any additional rumours of them.
We finally got to take our Vegas vacation at the end of April and the weather in Vegas was perfect--sunny and low 80's the whole time. We had a blast sleeping in, eating luxuriously and roaming from casino to casino. We also saw "Zumanity" which was quite interesting. At the end of the weekend, we ended up only being down around $200 from playing penny slot machines. One day I was lucky, then the next day JC was lucky, and so we rotated winning and losing.
Earlier in the month we took in some theatre in the forms of Evita (musical), Tang Concubines (a dance/martial arts sortof thingy), and Albert Herring (an opera in English). I also had one whole weekend where I did something scrapbooking related every day. That Friday night, some friends came over to scrap. On Saturday, I attended a scrapping convention which ROCKED. I saw some amazing new techniques, bought some cool new products, and won a cute gift basket of spring embellishments! Then on Sunday I went to my favourite store, Archiver's, to attend a card-making class.
Lastly, the weekend before we went to Vegas, we had a family gathering at our house to make invitations for Myko's wedding. While the gals worked feverishly in the scrapping room (formerly the dining room) making the invitations, JC amused the rest of the clan with a Partridge Family rendition of Rock Band:
In this picture, JC's on the drums, Mattie is singing and Michael (our nephew) is on the guitar. Kenna and Noel are watching.
In this picture, JC's still on the drums, Mattie is singing, and Kenna is on guitar. Michael and Noel are on the right, and Myko's friend Danette is watching on the left.
Here is another view where you can also see Myko hiding inbetween JC and Mattie.
