This and That

This past weekend was a very busy one. Some of us managed to get some things done though.
Mary-Kate spent a lot of time at the sewing machine and finished her skirt. She wore it to church on Sunday morning and she looked very pretty.
Friday she and I went to a scrapbooking workshop. It was a welcome time for us to be together just the two of us (relatively speaking). We got a lot of pages done for our scrapbooks, spent time with some good friends and ate a lot of chocolate. What more can a girl ask for.
Matthew managed to do some sewing too. We haven't figured out exactly what he is making. Poor Doug had to be the model. I guess it's all part and parcel of the father gig. Matthew also got most of a new coat done for himself.
More pictures of the ladies at the scrapbooking workshop. Two great days of time just to be creative.Mrs. Ellen and Grace working on their pages. Many thanks to Mrs. Ellen for arranging the whole get together. We gave her a bottle of wine as a thank you gift.

Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a covered dish supper at church. Attendance was great and the meal was exceptional.
Matthew and Nick vanLieshout got a chance to catch up on their news.

Anthony vanLieshout did some posing for me. What a ham that little guy is.
It was good to see both of the good doctors sitting and enjoying themselves for a change.
Mr. Collins in a rare moment when he is not picking on one of the kids. Poor little Luke looks like he is in need of a nap.
Becky and Kimberly enjoying themselves together. Becky gets prettier by the day.
The time together is too rare. Thanks to all who cooked and provided such a good time at the dinner. We should do that once a month.
