Yay!! I just sent off my Blurb book of Carissa and Ben's wedding. It is not too fancy, but I would say it was easy to do and if I had had more patience I could have done it even nicer. I did basically no texting for the pictures, since I figured they were pretty self-explanatory, plus the book is just for myself and anyone else who comes here and might want to look at it. Try it! (I mean try one for yourself).
Time for a little blogging. Susie, I always enjoy your blogs and updates on Hunter! We have Boo here (white chih-pom) for the week since Steve and Sandra are in Billings on vacation. He's been a good puppy, doesn't seem lonesome - only a couple of brief times where he sat on the stairs and looked toward the door and whined.
We had a nice potluck here yesterday. I should have taken a picture of the food. Why don't we do them more often!?
We're getting rain here, but it looks like if it drops one degree we could be getting snow.
Even though he had seen Uncle Todd play before. Last night we sat at the end of the row near the exit and Hunter was able to visit with the section leader, who apparently asked him if he was going to be a hockey player when he grew up because when we got back in the car he said, "When I grow up, be hockey player." He wanted Uncle Steve to feed him the chicken nuggets right before we left. The pictures are a little blurry, but you get the idea. You couldn't use a flash in the arena.
Grandpa bought him a little stick at the souvenir booth. You can't see the stick in motion, but he is playing hockey on the way back to the car.
for taking some pictures so I could blog them. On Saturday I cleaned house and we went to Costco in Coeur d'Alene (Idaho has less sales tax than WA) and we had new tires put on the Sante Fe. Wow. Tires are EXPENSIVE. But necessary! Saturday night Hunter and I got to play so Susie could go with Jeff to the hockey game. Even though he was tired Grandma didn't make him go to bed (he wasn't cranky though)because we had so many things to do. Sunday dinner was here and I made lots of food hoping one of the friends that has lost her husband could come - she wasn't feeling well. Here are some pictures of Hunter making snowflakes. He was so thrilled with himself. You can see Grandpa and I are standing by ready to help at the least sign of distress. haha
Susie brought over my Market Spice Tea that she got for me in Seattle, so I thought we might as well have lunch together. Hunter and I got a little play time in before he had to go home and have a nap.
It's Monday morning - we had a pleasant, but relatively quiet weekend, ending up last night with supper at the Hot Rod Cafe with Kent and Carol Schluter. I had their feta salad with huckleberry dressing. Yum! And it's served with their garlic bread (unlimited). Dad had shrimp, which was on special last night.
I am working at finishing up a few undone projects in my sewing room so that when I come back from Sewing Expo I can dig into whatever inspirations I have found there.
We had a wonderful 4-5 days with Larry and Ginny. During that time we celebrated Larry's birthday with a party, cake and presents!! Larry and I did lots of reminescing over old times. On Saturday we helped Todd and Amy finish moving to their new apartment. We played the new "pencil" game, which got pretty feisty. We played a little mystery partner Rook, too. Here are a few pictures.
