80 in 08!!!


So sorry that I haven't posted in awhile but I've been busy with my mom's 80th birthday bash. EVERYTHING was orange ( her fave color) and everyone dressed with a touch of orange.
The best part was all of the friends and family that came from as far as New York and Arizona!
We had a program which consisted of my cousins doing an African dance honoring the matriarch which all of the women joined in, a poem reading from all of the granddaughters, a stand up comedy routine from my niece from New York who is hilarious, and ending with my mom's first dance with all of her grandsons, great grandsons, her brother and son in laws.
My immediate family was all present which was really touching for my mom because a couple of my brothers have been MIA for a few years so we manage to snap a few family pics before they disappeared agin in to the sunset The first pic is of our immediate family and all 7 siblings(I'm 3rd from the right).

Just like the old days!





I puled an all nighter with my dear friend Teresa and we created these Bo Bunny Family Albums.(mine is on the left) It was so-o-o much fun. We laughed, sang, and got caught up on the latest 'news' and before we knew it ,it was 6:00 AM!!!!
The close up is the one that Teresa made!...pretty awesome for a first time scrapper!
Take a look at how my scrap room looked before I cleaned it up this afternoon!!

Neckties for the little Men


I made some orange neckties(see pic) for the little men to wear to Grandma's birthday party.They are the exact style of the one worn here. They are reversible with faded denim on the reverse so all they have to wear is jeans and a shirt.I just think they are so cute!!!

I love Fall!



It's been awhile since I blogged but things are crazy busy around here as we plan for my mom's 80th birthday and with that extra busyness comes increased pain in my spine, but this too shall pass.
We had a great weekend, first at a wedding where our oldest grandson was a ring bearer for the second time and the next day was a family portrait at the inlaws. Although it was hectic, the weather was amazing and it's always great to be surrounded by family and friends!!!
