Wow, it's been so long since I posted, it's hard to even know what to write! So I guess I'll just jump in with both feet again.

I've missed reading all of your blogs, but still haven't had time to catch up.

We were in Colorado for nearly 2 weeks. We got back on a Friday night, and I left the following Sunday to go help Jayme unpack from her move. She has a really nice house now, and it was fun to help her get things arranged and decorated. She has such good taste!!!

I returned home from there on Thursday and Saturday was my Grandson, Daniel's birthday celebration. I made him a spiderman cake (one of the best I've ever done--even if I do say so myself!) on Friday night--stayed up until 2 am decorating it! Saturday we were supposed to go to his brother's soccer game--but it was rained out. We all got together (including Jayme and family) Saturday afternoon for homemade pizza and then cake and ice cream. Then that evening we all went to see Veggie Tales Live--what a blast that was. It was so much fun to watch 3 year old Addy jump up and down and clap and dance. And she kept saying, "Nana, Larry Boy is SOOO BIG! He's even bigger than me!!" She was so funny!

Sunday was church and life group--good, very good.

Monday was just catch up day.

Then today we went to a children's home and started painting and redecorating a bedroom. We're doing it in purple, green and white. One wall is white and purple striped, one wall green, and 2 walls purple. The striped wall will also have vines and leaves stencilled on it. We hope to finish tomorrow or Thursday. We worked from 10:15 this morning until 5:00 this afternoon. Whew!!

So....what's new with all of you???

Oh, and in the midst of all of that, I have been working on a scrapbook for my husband's 70th birthday. It's a surprise so, I mostly work on it late at night. I think I've made about 50 pages in the last month or so. I'm having a big surprise birthday party for him over labor day--which is actually MY birthday--so hopefully he will really be surprised since his birthday isn't until the 16th. I managed to get all the kids and grandkids to come!!! What fun we'll have!! I even hired a photographer to come take family pictues.

Well, better sign off for now. Tomorrow will come early!! When I have more time, I'll try to write something profound!! But for now, it's just news!

God's richest blessings!
