Amazing 100th Birthday Party and more!





These are a few pictures from the party with the last one being the birthday "boy" of course! It was wonderful to see all of the family and friends that came out to celebrate with him. Everyone was invited to mass first which we went to though it was all in German, so no comprehension, but we were there. Nathan, of course, was all over and George spent half the time in the basement with him since when I'd try to take him, he'd just call for Daddy! Kyle was really good though!

We went over to a hall for lunch and it was a full house for sure. It's German hall, so they did some dishes that Opi really likes like rouladin and SpƤtzle. Lunch was good and we did a round of Happy Birthday with a big candle and some Black Forest Cake! A wonderful day of celebration!


This is my latest layout and it was done for a challenge where you had to include at least 3 pictures, a white title and the title had to have the word "new" in it!

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Scenic Route and Autumn Leaves. Rub-on is Making Memories. Scalloped Chipboard Circle is Creative Imaginations. Title lettering is Making Memories, Heidi Swapp, Doodlebug and American Crafts.

I'm VERY excited about the visitors we're getting tomorrow! My friends from Australia are here and coming over for a play and a visit and I can't wait to see them. I talked to Julie today and can't believe she's actually here already! Seems like we've been talking about it for ages and it seemed like it was so far in the future, but they arrived last night safe and sound!

Well, it's been a busy day around here! I got up with the boys and let George sleep in a little. I was lucky though because the boys didn't wake up until just after 7am and that NEVER happens in our house!! I ran out and did some shopping so that I could finish off the few things I needed to get and I did, so I'm very happy to be able to say that I'm finished! Came home and George went out to do some errands, I put Nathan down for what's turned out to be a long nap (yeah!) and I've been cleaning the house like a madwoman! There's still more to do as well, but I didn't want to be too noisy while Nathan is sleeping.

Since it's been a busy one, we're ordering pizza for dinner and I'm hoping to get the rest of the cleaning done and then maybe a little scrapping/card making or just some vegging in front of the TV!!

Have a great night!
Cheers,
Colleen
