I absolutely LOVE them! I didn't even realize she knew my birthday was coming up! She then snatched the bill and paid for my supper as well. Thanks so much Kara! You didn't have to do any of that, but I love the jewelry and the supper was delicious! After we ate we went for a walk on the path along the river. Unfortunately it was cut short due to the mosquitos! They were horrible!
When we arrived back home Emma enjoyed demonstrating her hula hooping abilities to Kara, as did Gage.
I took this video this morning of Emma outside doing her hula hoop. She's doing pretty good.
Gage is getting better. I laugh when I see him do it. He's not as fluent with his movements. :-) (He gets that from his mother AND father!) I've been trying to get video of Scott hula hooping but I have been unsuccessful.
Later on, when I was talking to my sister Kysa on the phone, I had to brag to her about getting to eat Chinese food, and also about my new jewelry. She was dying to see it, so I told her I would post them on my blog. I also told her about another set of jewelry that I bought from Kara about a year ago and she wanted to see those too.
You'll have to check out Kara's website KLG Designs to see other jewelry pieces that she makes. She is very talented, as you can see! She has a booth at Urban Harvest this year, and she will also have a booth at The Capital A'Fair this weekend on the capital grounds. Thanks so much Kara for the necklace and earrings. I LOVE THEM!
Other than my exciting evening, not too much happened today. The kids had swimming lessons at noon. Gage was so excited because he passed the level he was currently in! Emma hasn't been tested yet, so I'll be interested in seeing if she passes. Last time when she didn't pass she told me she didn't want to because she would have to do more stuff. UGH! That's kind of the point!
