Boys will be boys...


Andy and Ashley attended a wedding yesterday…

With an outdoor reception…

It rained all weekend!

I offered to keep Locklan, but they said that he had a great suit and new rain boots to wear.



Last night, Andy sent me these photos…

Looking at the top photo and seeing that Andy is just as muddy,
I'd say that the apple didn't fall far from that tree!
Like Andy texted me:
Mud=Fun!

Prom Night!

I'm back from my trip...more about that later,

But first, I have something to show you...

Mr.K's grandson, Nick, went to the prom last night...

Nick usually dresses like any high school junior...
very casually...

But last night, wow!

Wanna see?

Here's Nick and his lovely date, Lauren!


And for good measure,

Here's Nick and his big sis, Larissa, who will be a junior at Slippery Rock University this fall!




~sigh~

Realizing that I met Nick and Larissa's mom when she was seven years old makes me feel...

Ancient!

Dog Days...

I'm up early this morning, getting ready to go on a road trip,
I'm heading up north to spend time with Mark's relatives...

Back on Monday, I promise...

But before I go, I thought you might like to see my latest project:


One day soon, all 24 dogs and one cat will be assembled into a quilt...

Here comes the bride!

Saturday was such a great day,
we went to the wedding of my nephew,
Kyle and his beautiful bride, Marissa!


Don't they look happy?
I can hardly believe that Kyle is all grown up,
married and ready to start a new life with his life partner.

It seems like only yesterday his mom, Mark's sister Donna,
walked up to me and handed me a rose.

She explained that it wasn't just any rose,
but a very special rose for aunts-to-be.

I remember bursting into tears...
this was a long awaited, much anticipated announcement!


The ceremony was wonderful,
The reception was such fun!

 
Everyone danced, even Kyle's 94 year old grandmother,
who uses a wheel chair, got out there and did the Chicken Dance!

It was so cute...they stopped on the way down the aisle for just one more kiss!

But before the wedding...
Tony posted this photo on facebook...

With the comment that after watching YouTube videos, he thought he had it all figured out...

Hmmmmm...I do remember Mark putting on a tie and tying it,
then loosening the knot, slipping it off and putting it on Tony...

Fortunately, he and Mindy somehow (almost) got it figured out...


I guess you could say they tied the knot too?

Andy and Ashley weren't able to go to the wedding...

So here is my obligatory Locklan/Dad photo...


See you next time?

Don't!

You should never leave containers filled with bird seed on your patio overnight...

Look what I can do!

Locklan is now 14 months old, getting bigger, faster, smarter and more fun by the day. 

He jabbers constantly. Last week he began saying, "Hi, Shirley!"

He' been reaching for the door knobs for a while but wasn't quite tall enough-until this morning when he figured this out: 



Time for a mani-pedi!

On Monday, I lead Winnie, Tony's basset hound, into my car...
 
 
I lied to her.  I told her we were going on a great adventure!
 
Truth is, we were on our way to Beth's Pooch Parlor to get her nails trimmed.
 
Winnie HATES to have that done...
 
I felt so guilty, after we left Beth's
(no photos of that...Winnie was not the most gracious client)
 
We  headed right for...
 
 
Cheeseburger land!
 
 
She wolfed down her burger but did graciously allow me
 to remove the pickles before I gave it to her...
 
Was I forgiven?
 
No!
 
But when her Daddy came later, she allowed him to comfort her...

I know it's been too long...

But as you can see...
 
 
We're busy!
 
Catch up with you soon, I promise!
