Weekend Highlights

Uh, Natalie....I thought you said you were going to do a step-by-step on the one yellow card?!?...Well, instead this is what I did this weekend. I promise that the step-by-step is coming soon! Thanks for being patient and thanks for letting me share my wonderful family fun times with you. They are quite priceless to me!

Various AHS soccer team alumni played the current team in a fun game on Friday night. They had alumni from as far back as 1994. My niece Julie graduated in 2003. The weather was outstanding. Here's my sweet Julie on the field. Her legs are about 8 feet long it seems...LOL...and she's so athletic. The score was 1 to 0 in favor of the current team. Oh well...still a fun time!

Kevin just laughed because as soon as Julie would get closer to us Mom and I would whip out our cameras. I just said "Beware of scrapbookers!" LOL I took about four times as many pics as needed, because you just never know when you'll get the perfect shot. Now I have several to choose from and can easily delete the rest. Kevin asked "What would we have done if the camera was never invented?" I just shudder to imagine. LOL

Oh and the socks....they were the only striped ones on the alumni team so it was easy to find her on the field. Cute!

The sky was breathtaking. What a wonderful day for a soccer game!

You could even see the outline of the moon in the sunlit sky. Kinda neat, huh? Well, it is to me as I find a lot in life and nature to be intriguing. I am always in awe every day about something.

After the game we headed to dinner at Jake's. It's the best restaurant in town! Then, I went home to get Macy and we visited at my parents' house with Julie and Josh. They spent the night and enjoyed dad's yummy breakfast, went to the farmers' market and visited with other family and friends. Such a nice weekend for them! I've now seen them two weekends in a row! I feel so spoiled! :)

Ok, fast forward to Saturday morning. I received a call from my sweet friend Tammy. We caught up and talked about when we'd scrapbook together again. I then headed to the local farmers' market and got these goodies. Can you believe that those gorgeous green peppers were only 5 for $1? What a steal! Of course, I had to get some Amish pickles, fresh corn and a few sweets. The raspberry treat is long gone as I type this. We've also already sampled the homemade iced cookies. Oh my sweet tooth gets me in trouble all the time.

We also hauled the old entertainment center to a friend's daughter's apartment. I was so glad to get it out of the basement and to share it with someone. Mom and Dad had shared it with us years ago when we first moved into our house. It's still in excellent shape and will have a happy new home. Kevin just headed to see his friend Kent. Macy and I have the house to ourselves so I think I'll do some laundry and other misc. here and I hope to end up at my craft table. OH, yeah I gotta go print some pics for a crop I'm attending Friday. So much to do and the whole rest of the day to enjoy doing it. Ahhhhhhhhh.....I love Saturdays!

Hope your weekend is full of blessings, too!
