2015 Blue Jeans Week 33

Our "re-entry" week after vacation was a little crazy.  Our "to-do" list was a mile long.  School starts in a week and a half, and we are trying to come to terms with that, but still have some summer days, so we are going to enjoy them.  Had lots to do this week and ended the week on a wonderful note with one of my best friend's daughter's wedding reception.  Crazy!  Take a look at our week. . .
Trying to adjust to life after vacation, we needed to do some puzzles to remind us of our great time in the mountains.  Fun family puzzle time on a Sunday afternoon!

One to-do item was get Mr J to the eye Dr.  He needs glasses, and he picked out this pair.  Looking good!  He will get them right before school starts.  

Miss E has been working on organizing different things this summer for a Young Women's Value Project for church.  This week she worked on our music CD collection.  

I got roped into making alterations to 70 high school band uniforms.  oh. my.  Lots of sewing and sequins going on around here!  First game is Sept 3, so wish me luck that I get them all done!!!
Miss O and Miss A went to a 3 day Band camp this week.  They had a ropes course.  These are my 2 girls 35 feet in the air on the Jacob's ladder.  Ahhh!  I could never do that.  I am so scared of heights.  Proud of them for doing it, though. It was hard work to get up there!

One more house project after we got the house painted.  We bought these big pots and painted them the color of the front door to help bring out that color.  Finally got them planted and in place tonight.  Love the way they look!

Friday and Saturday I baked for my friend's daughter's wedding reception.  We made over 350 mini cheesecakes and then I did these six pans of brownies.  Yummy!

After we got the house done, we have been working on the summer house.  Love how the girls crowd around Ben to help him with things.  They are good helpers!

And Saturday was the wedding reception.  Here is the beautiful bride with Miss A.  It was a beautiful evening.  Have known this girl since she was 3.  Crazy to see her married, but so happy for her!

Thanks for visiting!  I have recipes this week so come back Wednesday!  Life is getting back to "normal" whatever that means :)

  1. Looks like a really productive week! Love the new pots out front. That pop of color is perfect and truly does help tie the door in with the big picture. Mr J's new glasses look great. That reminds me that Justin needs a check-up. You are so wonderful at helping out with all the sewing and baking for others. I'm sure they all appreciate it and wouldn't know what to do without you. Great job! Such a beautiful bride and just love her flowers.
