A week (or more) in review!!

I know, I know, I've been a bad blogger! Busy times here at Korthuis Manor!

I'm just going to give you a basic run through.

We had Emily's last Orchestra concert as a middle schooler - next year high school! She looked so grown up and, that girl can play a mean violin :-)!

Kathi's birthday was Thursday and I crashed her coffee party with her sister (my friend) Tami - I must admit, it was at Starbucks, and I felt like a traitor, and was afraid alarms would go off when I went through the doors - but I made it in!

Friday night we had a surprise dinner for Kathi. Jeff's sweet sister Janice (with a name like that, how could she not be delightful? :-) was up visiting and she joined us. It was a beautiful night with appetizers on the patio, dinner inside, and then back to the patio for Coffee Creme Brulee' on the patio, until way too late. What is it about sitting around outside visiting - it's so wonderful and time flies, and people just seem to stay longer - I love it!

Jim, our neighbor came over and brought a few of their puppies for a visit. As you can see the birthday girl was enamoured!On Saturday, Kathi, Marla and I headed to Lynnwood for an overnighter, shopping trip. I didn't take any pictures - bad blogger! But we had a delightful time! Shopping, dinner at PF Changs, rented a movie in our room,(a true-blue chick flick) and crawled into bed and watched it! We had a great time!

On to another busy week, but I promise I'll be better about updates here on the blog. This Sunday Randy is in the Ski to Sea race and we have the party here afterwards, and then next weekend is Brandon's Grad. party - think we'll get our yard in by then ?!?!!? Not a chance - but we're (as in mostly Randy) are working hard to get as much done as possible.

Lots of lingering on our patio too. There is just something about being outside.

Now, we just need some consistent weather.

You have been busy, no wonder our paths have not crossed in a while. Part of that is my fault we are pretty busy over here too. Good luck this weekend with the race and it sounds like the weather will be nice for it.
