I'm so behind and my OCD won't let me blog out of order! I have half a mind to just scrap these missed months posts but I don't want to forget these little moments so I'll try to blow through these to get to the meaty stuff.
Alyssa's grad party
Remember in mays post the madness that was my desk? That was the creation of little Missy's graduation gift of a years worth of photos and mementos her mama cleverly snuck away. I was glad to provide my artistic abilities.
Ms. Lindsay did an amazing job with our china themed party. She choose the book Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. The details in the book were so intricate you could picture everything. It was so emotional and raw, incredible page turner, I had to get the second book because I had to know what was going to happen next!
As always we do what we do best eat, talk, kiss babies, eat, talk and eat some more!
The entire month of May my sister and her hubby were touring Europe. (Yes jealous!)
We had them over for Sunday dinner, I made my first ham and tried my hand at grandma's potato salad. I did pretty darn good too. My lovely sister brought me these delightful goodies, soap from Paris, bowls from Italy bracelets from Spain. All in my favorite color, aqua! It looked so pretty like this I left it to display in my book shelf.
Yearly I put on a craft day which has affectionately become known as CYBO (craft your brains out) for 10 delirious hours of crafting food and games. I normally to do it at a local high school in a big room but my connection retired so we were on the hunt for a new location. Only problem is we were so used to the nice accommodations and being free is a big plus! Another change this year was that I now have a house to host in, so I took the challenge of fitting 15 crafters between 3 rooms.
I think these girls look pretty happy.
