The day after Thanksgiving we put up and trimmed the tree. Okay, so Bob put up the fake tree, the neighbor girls, Wil and Rane put on the ornaments. Next, I rearranged the ornaments (way hard) and put the bows on. It was an all day experience. I'm thinking that it is time I do something different next year as this is the 5th year in a row that I've used the same bows. I'm cheap. Love having the tree up!!!
Well I selected 11 photos for my collage but "collage maker" needed 12 photos. That is the reason my collage begins and ends with "The Statue". Top Row L. to R. This statue was at Little Italy's in San Antonio. Because I was surrounded by immature people (certainly not me) this statue became a conversation piece. We found this lost lady in the elevator and felt sorry for her, so we had to take her to our room with us. We stayed at the historical Menger Hotel in San Antonio. Allison and Aunt Linda at the Riverwalk. Middle Row L. to R. Katherine and Matt exiting the Temple. Back in Austin for the reception. Kat and Matt dancing. Harm and Bregje got stuck taking us to the airport! They were so helpful to Janice! Bottom Row L. to R. The oldest dance hall in Texas. Janice handing out pedicures the night before the wedding. The bride before leaving for the Temple. Needless to say we had a wonderful time with family and friends. I am so thankful that Allison and I were able to share in this great weekend with the Gee family!!!!
Fun in Austin, Texas! Attending Katherine's bridal shower was awesome! Around 50 guests attended, put on by my sister's friend. The food was great and it was just so much fun watching Katherine enjoy every minute of her special day! I'm so lucky that I fly for free!
It's hard to believe that on August 5th Wil turned 6 years old. His dad took him to the Great Wolf Lodge for his special day. We celebrated at home with a family dinner which he chose hot dogs and corn on the cob to eat. We made Italian sodas which were very yummy! It was great to celebrate with cousins, the neighbor girls and Wil was happy that Grandma Nichols was well enough to come.
Allison and I had a great week with the grand kids at Ft. Stevens State Park. The kids each earned their "Junior Ranger Badges". The weather was great! The high light of our trip was that finally all three of them were off the training wheels, so that made our bike rides much more enjoyable!
Hooray! Today was the last day of school for me. As you can see I need to update my blog. I will be working on that next week. Looking forward to camping, sleeping in, playing outside and enjoying all the warm weather we will have (hopefully). Happy summer everyone!!
