I Treasure Your Friendship

Good morning!  I'm popping in with more pictures from our weekend and a card for the current Retro Sketches challenge.  This is an all Verve card today....using two different stamps sets and the sweet little scallop frame die.  I'm in need of the cheery colors as it has been freezing here!  I thought this card was perfect for my post today!  I could most certainly send it to Sara who is featured in the pictures below.
 
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Sara, Andrew and their girls, Michal and Erin came to stay with us this past weekend.  Sara and I first met when we went to PaperTrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire.  We instantly hit it off over dinner and when we had some free time before heading back to the evening events.   Since then, Sara, Andrew, Pat and I have gotten together twice.  Once for a show choir competition where both Ryan and Michal were competing and the second time last summer when Sara and Andrew came for a visit.  So...this year when Sara and I were comparing show choir schedules we saw that both kids were competing this weekend.  We were thrilled to have them all come stay with us and for all of our kids to meet each other.


The kids took no time at all getting to know each other.  Marcel (the child that doesn't have a shy bone in his body) quickly (within 5 minutes) asked the girls if they wanted to play Wii.  So down to the basement they went to get busy playing!  And about an hour later, Ryan suggested a game of Apples to Apples.   Needless to say, we had fun all weekend long.   Marcel fell in love with Andrew and Sara and wasn't interested in going to Collin's basketball game instead he stayed at the show choir competition with them.  Up top he's showing off his gangnam style dance moves!

My brother, Neal, sister-in-law, Cindy and niece, Elizabeth, came to the competition to cheer us along too.  All and all a great weekend!  We're looking forward to getting together again soon!
And how could I resist not including this picture of Ryan...if you haven't been over to Virginia's blog...you have to stop by and see her!  Her Ryan badges crack me up and I'm so pleased that he approves of my Project Life pages :)!
