It's been a very busy and exciting weekend for me.

CKC was in Houston this week and I volunteered on Thursday night at the CK Bookstore Booth. Had fun and the time went by quickly. I got a $30 voucher and entrance into the vendor faire for Friday and Saturday so that was great for the budget.

I registered to take a CK Class called Peek Into My Week...great class, very cute mini book project. I will post pics when I get a chance.

I was planning on shopping at vendor fair Friday AM when a friend of mine asked if I wanted to work with SEI for the morning at their booth. I did that from 9 am - Noon, earned $30 and bought some great product for dirt cheap....another great thing that was easy on the budget.

Friday night I spent time with a few of my scrap friends. And enjoyed all my new scrap treasurers.

Saturday was my in-laws 50 th Anniversary and the whole family got dressed up and went out to eat at a very nice steak restaurant, "Brenners on the Bayou". The food was delicious and we all had a wonderful time.

My in-laws are so cute together and kissed each other after a little speech my father-in-law made about marrying my mother-in-law was the best thing he ever did. Awwwww !

Of course, our resident 6 year old (aka Bianca) found all of that to be TOO MUSHY and asked that they "cut that out at the table since people were trying to eat"! That was so FUNNY!!

Saturday night my Bianca spent the night and we scrapped until Midnight ! I finally had to make her go to bed .... that girl is a scrapping fool ! Wonder where she gets that from ? LOL

My oldest daughter who lives in Dallas came down for the anniversary party and brought my "granddog" with her. I may have mentioned he is a just under 200 lbs and is the sweetest thing ever !

Sunday we made a big brunch for everyone and stuffed ourselves with sour dough pancakes ! So Delicious !!

Later in the day "Aunt Crystal" and Bianca made homemade dog treats for their dogs.

Bianca picked out the cutter shapes...hearts, stars, angels, bats and a Cat Head......... who knew those were destined to be dog treat shapes ?

Winston closely watched the if he knew those treats were going to be for him !

Once they were baked and he got to sample them, the CAT HEAD appeared to be his favorite...go figure !!

I just love having the whole family back at home. This weekend was very special to all of us and we are grateful to have been able to all be together once again.

Was wondering what's been up -- knew you had rain on the first day of the bike race and wondered if your alone night at the hotel got invaded by your non-cycling husband! But the weather was fine the second day. Knew the scrapbooking convention was in as we went to the Library Book Sale in one of the massive rooms in the Convention center and think we looked down on you in there somewhere. Loved all the pics and the post. Sounds like you've had a great time of it.

I on the other hand, was writing papers...!

Love Love Love this post! I envy the time you must have had at CKC. I've never made homemade dog treats, would you mind emailing me the recipe?
