Flew home to Seattle today and look what was waiting for me on my front porch!!!!
I didn’t even have to enter a contest!!
Oh what a weekend! My nieces, Michelle and Melissa and I flew in from California to Washington on Thursday evening and from then on the fun never ended! My niece Michelle celebrated her 30th birthday and her gift master minded by her sister Melissa was to have an “Anne of Green Gables Girly Weekend” up in my neck of the woods!
When we arrived in Washingotn we decided that Laura and Katie, my nieces that live up here in Washington were going to spend the weekend at my house so that they could spend as much time as possible with Michelle and Melissa visting from California – slumber party!!
Here’s the weekend in a nutty shell:
Thursday evening – arrived from California, dinner and watched Miss Potter.
Friday – Girls slept in and enjoyed the morning reading and relaxing. Laura came by after working a half day and we then went to the Bellevue Botanical Gardens and Whole Foods to shop for our weekend! Met up with Katie, had some snacks and started our Anne of Green Gables Marathon. We watched the first DVD – about three hours – So much fun – My sweet nieces sleeping under my roof – PURE JOY!
Saturday – Ebelskivers for breakfast – DELICIOUS! My nephew Josh and my husband Steve joined us for breakfast and a walk and then the boys were sent away for the day so the girls could prepare for Afternoon Tea and the last four hours of the Anee of Green Gables DVD! We made chicken sandwiches, cucumber sandwiches, scones, cookies and had a delightful tea party! Katie was in charge of decorating the table. Each spot at the table was individually decorated – Katie you are awesome! Then came the Anne of Green Gables movie – OH SO WONDERFUL!
Sunday – we enjoyed breakfast with Josh, Dan and Steve joining the girls and then we went to the Japanese Garden in Seattle. We returned and had lunch together and enjoyed food, fun and fellowship. Our weekend was such a success, we decided it must become an annual event!
Open invitation to all my nieces – you are welcome any time! Come on up! May God richly bless each and everyone of you as I am blessed by each one of you! My heart is full of joy and love for each of you!
