Good Thursday Morning to you again my friends. This week has passed much like the last one except for my Portland trip. Oh, what a wonderful time we had. Jenny took lots of pictures and I'll have her help me download them on the computer tonight so I can show you some of them. We talked all the way to Portland and all the way home! The shower was great. The ladies decorated in an airplane theme. There were white plastic tablecloths with runways added down the middle with yellow tape. Plastic airplanes were waiting for take off! Hundreds of paper airplanes were strung along the ceiling with puffy tissue paper clouds amongst them. The baby's name will be, (is), Piper, after the plane her daddy learned to fly in. What fun we had. We each made a page or two for her first alphabet book. Printed at the bottom was, "The letter ____ is for. Each of us was given a letter. I had "G" for Grandma and Mandy had "M" for Mommy. Then we drew a picture representing the letter. They will be bound into book form for her.
We also printed our wishes for the baby on a sheet of paper with "Piper" on it and an airplane in the background. Those were also given to Mandy to give to Piper some day. We're getting so excited. Her due date is four weeks from today! I can't wait to hold my little granddaughter in my arms. I talk to her when I'm with Mandy, so I hope she recognizes my voice when she's born. :-)
I got home about 4:30 on Saturday and we were at the lake by 6:00. That was even stopping at Applebee's to eat dinner! Hubby was packed and ready to go. He has "lake fever" as bad as I do! I just came home this morning for Bible Study and then it will be back to the lake tomorrow. Our best friends, Neal and Jenny, (my traveling partner) are planning to bring their camper up Friday and Saturday nights. Yeah!!
This first picture is of Mt. Hood as we drive down Interstate 84 on Friday. Look at that blue sky. Quite unusal for my trips to Portland which usually include lots of rain.
Take care and I'll see you again next week! Please leave comments if you can so I know you're there.
