I'm so grateful to have so many of the old pictures of my Mother and Father! This scrapbook page contains a picture of my Mother, Sally and her good friend, Irene McCarthy (who was later in her bridal party). It was taken on the day of my Uncle Marty's high school graduation. Don't they look like they're ready to stir up some serious trouble? Are they fighting over that handbag?
I've been wanting to get to Philadelphia to visit Patrick and his family, but something has always come up. My niece, Sarah, said she was driving to Phillie over Halloween weekend and I said that if nothing else came up that I would travel with her and Steven. But, I asked my nephew Patrick, to keep it a surprise from Jill!! What a surprise. I'm not sure that I've heard anyone scream that loud before. Steven did so well in the car - he had a rough time while we were there, but, he's only two! Here is one of the 2-page layouts that I created from that weekend! The kids are all so cute, I couldn't decide which pages to post.
Attending the NAFC conference in Portland, Oregon was a win-win for me! I'm going to get to see my lovely niece, Moe and this little sweetheart!!!! The city of Portland was delightful, I was pleased to learn that they were enjoying Indian summer while I was there. It was nice to catch up with old friends in the Feisanna world as well as make the acquaintance of some really fun new people. We enjoyed a great meal at Kell's Irish Pub and then toured around the city with Jeri and Pat before returning home.
