Your mommy made your daddy a cake and your grandmas came over to help him celebrate. Birthdays are fun! After we ate the wonderful dinner your mommy made we allContinue reading “Daddy’s Birthday”
Dear Sebastian… Early in the month of November we went all the way to California to see your Great Grandparents, your Aunt Cathy, Uncle Clem, Uncle Don, and Cousins… Charles, Elizabeth, and Dave. We flew all the way there so we could all have a party for your Great Grandpa Don who turned 80. LivingContinue reading “Clowns and Hats and California”
Wow… I’m tired. We arrived back home at 11:00 PM last night after spending much of the last five days back in Oregon. What a time we had… I’m sitting here looking back on it all and I’m overwhelmed with a feeling of love, laughter, and community. We have a big life there. So manyContinue reading “Whirlwind”
I Want The Serrated Knife, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Terri cut up the bird. She did a fine job. I do have to say my honey assisted by forking. It’s an important job… forking. Shouldn’t ever be underestimated.

Prepping The Bird, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Lisa cooked a mean turkey. It was delicious. I say two thumbs up for the briney goodness.

The Cake, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Pat and Steve were in charge of the cake. Maggie chose an ice cream cake and Pat chose the candles. Too funny.
Stick To Your Ribs, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We got back from camping on August 23 which just happens to be our friend Maggie’s birthday.

Celebrating The Fourth, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The Fourth, Saturday, we worked outside at our place, again, and then headed in to Sandy’s to hang with some friends and celebrate the fourth in style.

Appetizer Anyone?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went over to Maggie’s place last Sunday, the 21st, for a little get together with some friends.

Dinner, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Stan, my friend, who also happens to be my boss, makes a mean prime rib. This thing was good. It was so good we both ate some even though we’d already had dinner at Mom and Don’s. Damn…. that’s good.
Jello Shot Christmas Tree, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Thought I’d post a few shots from the Christmas/Holiday dinners we attended on Saturday.

ThisContinue reading “Jello Shot Christmas Tree”

The Napkin, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The theme this week’s photo hunt is party. I took this one of my brother in law, who’s a bit camera shy, at a party at my mom’s place at the end of last summer. My brother in law, Tim, showed me his napkin when I went to takeContinue reading “Photo Hunt – Party”
