Busy Weekend!

Hello All!

Well we are officially into FALL! We have been having wonderful weather here, so I am trying to soak up every last bit of those rays.

This last weekend we were a busy little family. We had a wedding to attend on Friday evening. It was one of Larry's cousin's wedding. The wedding itself was in Cathlamet and the reception was held at the Monticello Hotel. Very lovely wedding and fun reception. Once again Allyson danced our pants off! Once the dancing started she literally did not leave the dance floor! Grandma TuTu took a tour of duty (THANK YOU!) She was so cute out there!

The next day we headed up to Seattle for the Huskies game. We took Allyson to Uncle Steve and Aunt Bethie's house and they watched her while we went to the game and had a DATE night! We hardly ever get those, so we are SO THANKFUL to Bethie, Steve and Kiddo's for helping us out! We took our camper up and spent the night in there drive way. The next morning Beth cooked a wonderful breakfast and we got to talk scrappin and the boys watched a little Football. We had a great weekend - Thanks again Johnson Family!

My Favorite!

This is a layout that I am working on in regards to Allyson's favorite toy at the moment. She is in love with the See n Say. It is the farmer addition. She will say the animal sound and sign the animal as well if she knows the sign for it. It is so cute. She insists on taking it everywhere!
OK, I am off to balance the checkbook. We are meeting Grandma TuTu up at Papa and Dede's house tonight for dinner!

Cookie Time!

I can't believe summer is almost gone! I do love summer but there is something about fall that I love like no other season. I think it comes from my days in Wisconsin. The trees all lost there leaves there and I would spend hours raking the leave to create a big pile to jump into. I think the fact that it is the gateway to all the holidays is another reason I love fall so much. Before we know it we will be dressing up in coustume and exchanging christmas wishes!

So one of my favorite fall time activities is making cookies. This year Allyson was very hands on! She enjoyed the activity very much. We still need to frost, we have to do these things in stages now! OK, have a great weekend!

Bobby's Wedding

Last weekend we attended the wedding of my brother Justin's bestfriend Bobby. I was in Portland at Grey Gables. I had never heard of this place before and as we were driving there I was a bit curious as to what this place was going to look like considering the location we were in. I was this historic home tucked off I a busy Portland street. The wedding was outside in a beautiful setting. Twinkle lights everywhere and the path to the alter was sprinkled with red roses. The Bridal party and Bride had to cross over a little bridge to get to the Alter.

Just a beautiful wedding all around. It was so great to see Justin & Kelsey again. It had been over a year since I saw Justin last. (We got to see Kelsey over Christmas) I do believe that Allyson gave Justin a run for his money though!!! Sorry about the Laptop?!
I almost forgot to mention, I finally found someone that can out dance me! My daughter. She LOVED it I could not keep her off the dance floor! Larry had to take a shift! OK off to get Allyson to Preschool and then enjoy a few hours "Bug Free"

1st Bus Ride!

Can you believe it! Here my little Baby Bug is off for her first School Bus Ride! She LOVED it! She has been talking about the School Bus since last year and everytime we left school last year she wanted to get on the bus. Now she will have that chance every Monday morning. Of course I had to be there to be witness to the first trip. She was so cute when she got seated I could see she had a big smile on her face and she was wiggling around in her seat looking at the other kids. It was great! OK, she is napping and I am going to go get a little scrap time in before she wakes up! Have a good day!
