Behind the Scenes

I am so far behind on the blog that I cannot go so far back because it would take me too long to catch up. Therefore, I thought I would include some behind the scenes photos from the day before the wedding. Here is Julia, jet-lag and all, doing something different-dancing around the yard. While we were setting up tents, chairs, flowers, etc. she spent many a minute twirling and finding dangerous places to climb and jump from.
Jordan was so lucky as to be one of the guys to haul, mow, move and in general do all that we asked him to do.
The fearless photographer faced with the monumental task of taking the family photo. His biggest job was to be considered the "boss". Not an easy task with certain very bossy family members.
Trying to get the children and dogs to cooperate and stay clean at the same time.
The bride and groom to-be. Jordan is picking bugs off Maren and me in a constant state of hyperventilation.
After the picture taking we still had this to deal with. Check out Hayley's pix on Facebook for the finished product.
What a crazy and fun day. We were all together for a really short time but in my opinion the behind the scenes day was the best.

Up and Going Again

I decided that maybe I would like to get going again on my blog. Although, I am doing it all backwards, but I will get the hang of it again soon. Above is Grandma's bday gift. A Topiary arrangement that I thought looked particularly good on her table.

This is a picture of the pumpkin topiarys that I made for the front porch. I still need a wreath and some mums, but that is the next post.

Just realized that I am doing my posts backwards. The above picture is the apartment door wreath.
Yesterday was "Crafty Saturday" up on the "Ridge". Enthused by the fall like weather that we are having after a 90 dgree Thursday I decided to make some fall accesories for the back door and the apartment door. This picture above is the back door.
