Life has been full and busy of late. Monday I attended my Daughters of the American Revolution meeting at the downtown Portland Red Lion - our speaker's ancestor had been a passenger on the SS Sultana, a sternwheeler carrying Civil War survivors home after the war and the boilers blew up and it sank in the Mississippi river - the loss of life was worse than the Titanic! Learn more about it by clicking HERE. Then that evening I presided over the annual meeting of the Friends of Multnomah Falls - and was elected to my 3rd term as president. The photo below I just snapped - it's sunny right now! Love love.
Sunday was busy.. Dayle helped the kids load the U-Haul truck with the last of their things at their house to move to the lower level of his brother's home in Vancouver. I drove over once they'd got the truck there and hung out with them and we ordered pizza and watched the History channel together. I snapped some shots of the boys with my iPhone, so fuzzy photo alert. Gabriel was excited about starting some Taekwondo classes and donned his outfit to show me. :-) Michael is taking the classes too.Gabe and Hayden spent hours building these lego things.. they were quite proud of them.
I asked Caleb to hold up my holiday crochet afghan project up for me to photograph, but mainly I wanted a photo of him.. curly top. :-)
When I looked at the photo, I decided we needed another one.. with a smile.. :-) LOVE this kid. He's the baby of the family.
Yesterday my sisters and I met for lunch and then I led them over to my Mac store where I was asked to help my older sister pick out a new MacBook laptop as her original one finally got full and was complaining to her. I encouraged her to get one just like mine, with lots of room and power and a beautiful Retina display. And she did! She also got a Time Capsule as a wireless router and backup drive. She's going to love this!
Today, hubby and I are going to take it easy and perhaps go out for lunch. Time to breath. :-) I hope you're having a good week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
