Shopping, Scrapping and Starbucks
What a fun weekend! Mama came to see Rand & Me last Thursday afternoon and stayed until Sunday morning. We got to visit and do all sorts of fun stuff. I was wanting to attend a crop at my local scrapbook store but dreaded going alone the first time. Well of course, Mama came to escort me to the crop! It was so nice to crop with each other for 7 hours Friday night. She is super talented with her scrapbooking and teaches me so much. I often just give her my page and say "Here!" Nothing like a Mama, huh?! We had fun laughing at our inside jokes and observing the other ladies. We did miss Jules though. She is our fellow scrapper. Actually, we may have gotten kicked out for being so loud if she had been with us. Scrapping at Genia's with my girls is still my favorite place to scrap. Anyway, I love having a hobby that my mother and sister love as much as me.
We also shopped on Friday and Saturday. We even began the 2007 Christmas shopping season! We do like to spend money when we are together so maybe it is best we live in separate states! We enjoyed going to Starbucks and sipping each other's mocha's while engaging in good conversation. Anyway, it was nice to have Mama come to visit. I wish people visited us more often. I do think I am the hostess with the mostess (at least that is what Mama tells me!).
(Not the best picture of us. A little glare on the spectacles and we looked a little "worn" - but we captured the moment)
