Some pictures from our evening at RAZZLES with family!
The girls wanted to get together with everyone and since I had to work all day yesterday and Lude's out of town, there's just no way I could cook something up....but, who doesn't have fun at RAZZLES???

Happy visit

Yesterday the girls arrived for visits home.

Lude went to Lansing to bring Jess home from her last show of this tour.  And, at the same time, Kathleen is on her way to Columbus to surprise Leah & Mike for Lanah's birthday!  After the party, she's driving here for a few days! 

It's been very hard to work in a visit to Chicago and I miss them.  We've had some staffing changes at work and the flexibility to get that Friday/Saturday off to squeeze in a visit is difficult.  I am going for a visit at the end of July, but I'm super excited to see her, them.  Louisa is on her way to Tennessee with her youth group on a Mission Trip.  I know she is very much missing a visit home, but soon.....

Lude left today for another week in NY, so even though I have to work,
the girls and I will do some happy damage!

I went to E. J. Thomas Hall on Tuesday to see Jessica's show with friends Donna, Patty and Pat!
Can't think of a better group of girls to go with!!
It was hard for Lude to stay home and miss the fun, but he rather wanted us to have our girl night experience, which we really did!
It was just as funny as the other times and even more so since we could understand even better.
We had dinner before, but headed right home after the meet 'n greet while Jess went out with her high school forensics and acting mentor, John Mercer and his wife, Ruth.
It was nice to see my brother and his wife there and got a surprise when I learned my cousin and Aunt and Uncle were there.  They didn't tell me!  
It was nice to see Jessica's friends there including Mike.

Happy Father's Day to my Daddy!
Everyday, I feel your love and see it in your twinkling eyes!

 To my husband and fabulous father of two and now, three, 
Happy Father's Day.
And, as well, to the other father in our girls' life, Jon Hallas
Happy Day to you as well! 

I've been experimenting with digital scrapbooking and having a good time.....thought I'd use one of my pages today!

While the cat's away, the mice go shopping!

Went out to Aurora to look for some bargains for our fall trip!

Then, I went down to Canton to attend a retirement meeting!

Thinking about it......better get all my shopping done first!
