Where I have been???

Hi all! Wow, has it been a whirlwind month for the Vanderbergs!

Addie had her third homecoming, just one more to go until she's off to college! She looked amazing and of course had a wonderful time with all of her friends!
We went camping where a pasture of poison ivy attacked my leg. Can you believe that??? This is Vandy drying off from the poison ivy scrub. I, of course, wasn't that lucky. I scrubbed and scrubbed, but still I managed to get a pretty healthy dose of the nasty weed. And fooey on clorox, it burned and it still didn't go away for a week and a half.When we got back from our adventureous camping trip I threw a bachelorette party and our son got married the following weekend!

This is Justin, the son, and his new bride Marianna talking to his sister in Mali! It was a beautiful event and I have to say, Pumpkin Squash Lasagna at the Winds Cafe in Yellows Springs is to die for ... only the month of October, so get in there before the month is over! And below is a picture of me and Vandy all dressed up. Remember me mentioning the poison ivy, well it doesn't feel any better when you have to put on a pair of nylons with your fancy dress! Needless to say, by 10:00pm I had a run in my stockings! Soooooo ........ enough of that ...

Now we are preparing for the Fall Retreat! Yippeeeeeeee ..... Can you believe it is only a couple weeks away! Do you have all your projects ready? Remember just like in girl scouts .. be prepared! We will be having special trips to the store for great retreat savings! Katie and I are also teaching two mini classes, an earlybird and nightowl on Saturday .. guess who is teaching the earlybird!!! Also, we will be making Tim Holtz necklaces for only $5! Addie had me make them for each of her BFF's for Christmas this year and they are so fun and cute!

AND for all you digi people, we finally got Prima's digi stuff in and Michelle will be teaching those classes in the upcoming months! So look for them .... I'll post a sample or two here in the next couple days! Until then .. happy scrapping! ~ Allison
