Anniversary Getaway

Happy 12th Anniversary to US!

Bill and I had an amazing weekend celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary.  We went back to where we were married and it couldn't have been more perfect!  We were married on at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood.  Bill's friend owns a great cabin at Government Camp, so we went for the entire weekend of "US TIME".

This is where I sat and read my book!  It was heaven!

I took this picture from the couch in the living room!  
It was a beautiful weekend.  Sometime, you just need a couple of days to reconnect and love on each other.  I love you Bill.  You are an amazing husband and father!  I feel lucky everyday to be your wife!  Here's too many more happy years together!

Prom 2011

Jalen and Courtney's Prom 2011

The girls had their prom last weekend and what a night it was!  
Jalen and Courtney looked absolutely amazing!  
The hair, the makeup, the dress, the nails, the shoes, the eyelashes, the earrings, the dates, the flowers, the limo....all of it, was beautiful.

We are so thrilled that the girls had a wonderful time at their senior prom!  They had a great dinner at the Oswego Grill and then headed downtown to the Left Bank Annex for the Prom!  I can't believe that this year is wrapping up.  Graduation is right around the corner.  Life is good!  I am so blessed!

Slappy Cakes


Slappy Cakes is a an amazing little restaurant in SE Portland.  We went there awhile back to celebrate our Mom's birthdays.  Be prepared to stand in line for a couple of hours, but it is worth the wait!! 

You get to order the flavor of pancake batter that you want.  Then you get to choose all the mix-ins.  Sweet or Savory!  What a fun experience...we will be back!
