this weekend...

vegetable kabobs :] Amanda, Kody and I made supper for Mother's Day :] We had bbq steaks, vegetable kabobs, cheesy potatoes, caeser salad and for desert, apple crisp! Mom was very pleased and it was a fun family meal :] And I got to see my Grandma and Grandpa Lemonlaw! Before I left for Missouri, my Grandpa suffered a pretty severe stroke, and we were all really scared and worried. But i was SO impressed with how much he's strengthened and you could hardly tell! Plus, he was funnier than ever! kennedy and olivia :] Kennedy and Olivia were loving making their own jewelry with these pop beads this weekend :) they're twins! ; Lola and Tom each ran away once! This seems to be their favorite thing lately, and they've gotten really good at getting out (at the cabin AND at home!). It's funny at the cabin, it's scary at home (b/c of traffic). momma made cinnimon buns :] And Momma baked Cinnamon Buns! They were gone by Monday afternoon when we all went home ;) In Other News: - Keith and I are working on a Freckled Nest Shop update for later this week. We've BOTH been making new things, I can't wait to show you! - I'm teaching my Summer Love Workshop at Aquabooks tomorrow, you can still sign up here :] - My friend Autumn got the BIGGEST COOLEST GIFT EVER from her church! I'm SOOOOO happy for her, watch this video and prepare to cry in amazement and happiness! - I saw this picture today, and I miss Gigi...ooooooooh Gigi :] - Back to my studio, I have lots of awesome Custom Albums to finish over the next 2 months :)
