Return and report

I got home this morning from OC, and spent the day catching up with the kids. We went to Costco and did some grocery shopping and enjoyed lunch together. I need to take some pictures of all the notes that Faith and Todd carefully wrote for me to "walk come" me home today... they were so sweet!

The show was a lot of work. It was the first show of the year, and a three day show to boot, so I am tired. I was so happy to see some of the ladies who come back every year for classes, and I even had some of my TA's return this year... it was so good to see all of you!

I also got to meet up with Lisa and Arlyn from Scrap Village. It is always fun to meet villagers! Lisa and I went out to dinner on Saturday and spent hours chatting... I loved meeting you, Lisa!

It isn't always easy to get good photos from a plane window. The time of day and my spot in the plane has to be just right or I get light-streaked shots through the window glass. I did get these two this morning as we were flying past the rising sun over the Pacific Ocean and then over the snow-dusted mountains between Southern California and Nevada on the way home.

I am leaving again on Wednesday to head to San Jose. I am really looking forward to seeing Katherine, and meeting up with friends and family in the area. I am demoing in the booth this weekend, so if you are at the show please stop by and say hi!

I happened to catch this shot of Matt today, and it is hard to get shots of him that I really like. Someday I want jsut one of him with a genuine smile, but at least this one is showing a bit of his personality!

Tomorrow Jack and I are going to go buy the wood and hardware to build the kids their loft beds. I am working on scanning and printing photos for an album I am making for Jessica before I leave for San Jose as well. The next couple of days are going to be busy, but it is good to be home!

sounds like OC was great - it must feel good to get through the 1st show of the year! you will have to post pictures when you and Jack get the beds completed - best of luck that the projects goes well. I wish I had your knack for putting together albums quickly! What I am sure will take you one day to complete would take me several! Take care and have fun in San Jose!
