Tamon won FIRST PLACE!!!!

In Pole Vaulting at the Keefer VS Brabham meet last night! I was soooo excited for him! Below are the photos of him clearing the pole...the ones I got anyway!!!
This first one was of him clearing it at 6 feet. That is high That is like jumping or the top of a tall man's head! LOL...Oh...and for reference...the POLE is at 6 you see how much clearance he has between him and the pole????

This next one is at 7 foot. I didn't get the 6.5 photo....but that's ok. Tamon had come to me and said..."I hope I get 2nd place again." **He has gotten 2nd consistantly at all of his track meets thus far**. I just looked at him...stunned. He is shooting for 2nd???!!
I told him..."Why not go for first, Tamon. You are REALLY good, son. If you get 2nd that is great...but go for first, kid"
He smiled, and said..."Thanks, Mom. I will." And off he went to jump the 7 foot pole. Here are the results. =) Happy Mom...right??? WELLLLLLLLLL....

This last one is at SEVEN AND A HALF FEET!!!! Look at that form and his grace! I love this! As they say in basketball..."Nothin' but net". This was a gorgeous jump!

Well, he has cleared 8 foot before, but tonight, he was exhausted. He had just placed 3rd in discus throw, and ran a LOOOOOOOONG way to make it to jump in time. He was tired and just couldn't quite clear the 8 foot bar without knocking it he won first with a 7.5 clear jump. I am Proud. =)

I am so happy and so proud for my son, that I am in the mood to give something away!! Leave me a comment here on this post, and I will put your name into a random draw for some scrappy goodness from me. Become a follower and you get your name into the drawing TWO more times!!! I will draw on Thursday APRIL 1st> Yes, that is April Fools Day....But I promise..I am not fooling you!! =) Let's just say...Thickers and Primas will be involved!

Simply Obsessed March Reveal!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be joining Simply Obsessed as an official Member of the AMAZING Design Team! Today is my very first reveal with the MAGNIFICENT March kit, "Lucky Me", featuring Little Yellow Bicycle...and WOW~WOW~WOW! This kit ROCKED my WORLD! It is SOOOOOO versatile and will cover a wide variety of topics...not just St. Patty's day!

In this layout " ..LUCKY...", I focused on the blue and green colors to create a baby layout. I did use that little crocheted clover that comes in the kit...isn't it just stinkin' adorable! I used a punch to make the tiny white flowers and my cricut to make the vines.

In "BLISS", I did a punched blue bonnet that I pieced together. I have been wanting to do this for a long time...and this kit finally gave me the inspiration! I used white and blue cardstock for the petals and inked the top with green to create the off colored top of the blue bonnet. I used my cricut for the leaves. For the butterfly, I trimmed and heated one of the clear shamrocks to get it to look like the butterfly...I then used dimensional paints to create the black body and outline the wings.

And last is a traditional "Good Luck" card.

Thank you all for looking! This kit is FANTASTIC...and there are soooooo many things that you can do with it!
