Hello Monday!

Why is it that the weather always gets the best on SUNDAY night when everyone has to leave and go home? Seems like that always happens. Saturday it rained all day... booo! not good when you've trekked a few hours to your lake cabin to relax and play.. just to be crammed in the cabin all day not being able to go outside... thats what happened this weekend. my aunt & uncle had 16 people in their very small cabin... and my parents had a few and 2 dogs... WE opted to not even go over there.. and just stayed HOME. :) i live close enough to have that luxury. So the next best thing to playing outside is.. SHOPPING! right? Jessi, Sofia & I went to lunch and the mall for awhile. it was nice. :)

Yesterday we had the BEST time with my family. It was so fun. Almost everyone was there.. like a mini family reunion. The weather was GREAT. a bit windy but much nicer than Sat. We grilled and ate a lot... Ladderball tourneys.. and the guys had a 'Fishing Contest' with their Lakemaid Beer. Sally, Mom and the kids braved the lake and said it wasn't that cold. It was wonderful having Bill, Sally & Peder home and we welcomed Hanh for her first visit to the lake. I'm sure it was overwhelming with our crazy family who decided to throw her a birthday party. She was a trooper and SO SWEET. Can't wait to have my cousin marry this awesome girl.

Overall.. great weekend. Tons more stuff.. but it will have to wait for another day....
on to the creative stuff.

I decided to play along in a Scrapbooking Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers... Here is what I came up with for SALLY's great sketch. It was really fun and I'm hoping to do more challenges soon!

Also about 'small' cabins! A sister of mine has a small cabin on Norway and a df on George.... I had this quote made by Uppercase Living for their walls .... a small cabin is better than an empty castle!!!
