Saturday was Mackinley's first soccer game.
He put his body on the line more than once and got trampled at one point and I thought he was never going to get back on the field, but he did. He did a bit of shirt-pulling which Michael admits as being his fault...apparently that's the only was he can catch him when they're playing in the back yard!! Having said that, there was a chronic shirt-puller in the other team, so Mackinley wasn't alone.
We were so proud of him - I think we have a midfielder or centre back on our hands.
It was also Xavier's 4th Birthday.
What a gorgeous, animated boy!!! He just had the BEST time with his cousins (it was a "cousin only" party - that's enough) and unwrapping the presents, of course!! It was nice to relax with family and see the cousins grow closer and enjoy each other's company more and more.
We managed another group photo, but naturally Rainer didn't co-operate....we nearly had it. Maybe next year!
Used up my MME kit from Scrapbook Divas. A puzzle challenge from their Cyber Crop (didn't win - boohoo), and an altered box for Varna. Really happy with the way they both turned out. I've noticed when I'm meeting a deadline I leave the chipboard alphas raw....scribbles look okay!!
Forgot to add that AEIOU raised $25,000 from the Trivia Night. That will help a couple of kids through that can't afford it. They have a few more fundraisers this year that are really popular. Don't forget if you're reading this and you'd like to know more or donate, contact AEIOU. Kelly and I will no doubt go to Sing for Kids which is always a hoot!!!
Multi-tasking at the moment....123 challenge layout in progress; Michael came home from Sydney last night and has just got home from the Soccer Club's Committee Meeting!! No matter - more time alone for scrapping!! YAY!
