We have just returned from 3 weeks with Boyd's family

and it feels WONDERFUL to sleep in our own bed.(Below)This is my little scrapbook album corner of the lake house.

I bought a great small portable HP photo printer to take with us.

I love, love, love it!!

I printed photos each day and put them on a scrapbook page.

Therefore... I came home with a completed album

and don't have to spend time working on it now.

Here are some of the pages. There are many more!

The flag was a great marker on the mailbox so we

knew which driveway to turn in when we arrived.

That great cup of morning coffee!
Tastes even better at the lake!

Boyd's mom and sister in the lake.

His brother Dana... aka: King Neptune

Boyd with his creepy webbed swimming gloves.

Boyd's family.

Shopping was a regular part of the day. I loved this little


We put together lots of jigsaw puzzles. There was always someone

sitting on the sun porch working on the current puzzle.

My niece Annie. She is adorable and fun. I really

enjoyed my time with her.

Boyd's sister Mary is a great cook just like the rest of the

family. We ate some terrific dinners together... some at

restaurants and some at the house.

That's all for now... the Packer game is on and I need to support our

team even without Brett Farve.


I'm anxious to read your blogs and see what's new with everyone.


Love you,
