Successful Retreat

Well, all is good on the scrapbooking front! We made it through our retreat without a scratch! I got all but one of the pages done for our wedding album and just have to added the pages to the album. I took a few pic's while there.
Here is Marla and Heather

Staci & Sandy

Here is H hamming it up wearing Sandy's glasses

And finally, me! I'm holding up my prize for winning the "name the teenager" contest. We all brought a pic of ourselves when we were a teenager and Sheri (the hostess) numbered them and layed them all out for us to guess. I guessed the most and won a paper pack! Like I need more paper! But it was great!

Scrapbooking Retreat

Getting ready for the big weekend! Our scrapbooking retreat at the Crossroads B&B in Lindale. We have always had fun at these retreats and this weekend should be no different! Lots of food, fun (Scrap Crap Poker), and lots of scrapbooking! Here it is a mere 3 years later and I'm going to work on our wedding scrapbook. I started our Honeymoon book and still haven't finished but I intend to focus this weekend on just the wedding....lots of pink and black paper, ribbon, and embellishments. I guess I can finish our honeymoon book at the next crop weekend....November 15th!!!! Next I want to start my "Book about Me!" Because who can tell my story better than me? I also want to do a heritage book for my Mom and one for my Dad. Maybe I can finish those by next Mothers & Fathers day! I think if I am able to finish them before then I will give them early! I have lots of pictures, I just need to organize them and figure out who is in each picture. Daddy has lots of pictures for WWII that have soldiers in them he knows but I have no clue as to who they are??? Well, I've got to finish gathering things up and pack my clothes...oh yeah, we mostly wear PJ's!!!

Lake Conroe

We had a good weekend at Lake Conroe. Nice and peaceful. Except....When we go there and found out our "brand new room", Studio accommodations was more like an efficiency apartment. Really, more like a hotel room with a reallllllyyy dinky kitchen! And, no cable because of Ike. First thing we did was complain. They promised that they would check on Saturday morning to get us into something else but, they were booked!!! There wasn't a grill so all the food I brought to cook for dinner was, let's eat breakfast! That'll work! WRONG! I started the oven to bake biscuits and started frying up bacon and guess what? The smoke alarm (IN THE KITCHEN NO LESS) went off. I flew to the phone and called again...this time had to leave a message! Billy managed to yank the beeping blanker off the wall and stop it. I was fit to be tied! Then, we settled down to eat our dinner and watch our DVD's that we got for free since there was no cable. Watched Larry & Something with Adam know, the one where they act like a gay couple? It was OK...Then was kept up off and on all night because the folks in the next room watched television until 3AM. It all ended well because we got the kind of room we expected and had a grill and didn't have to listen to the neighbors television and got to watch television and even got to watch all the Texas vs OU game!! Hook 'em!!!!

We found the DoodleBug Train in Montgomery Heritage Park!!! I never even knew she worked for the railroad! That dog was full of secret! And we rode the wagon with Mollie and Willie as the pullers!

Here are a few of the sights we saw along the way!

We went to a nursery that I wish was here!
