Larry worked all weekend, but we still managed to fit in some fun. We were able to go to dinner and movie with the Zozzes on Friday and had dinner with friends and dessert with the Zozzes later in the weekend too. Since Larry worked on Saturday and Sunday I had plenty of time to put together these shower invitations for my friend Rachel's shower. I'm pretty happy with the way the invitations turned out, but not too happy with the way these pictures turned out. Anyway, here are the pictures.

Envelope inside:They were fun, but I'm gald that I'm done with them, and I'm sure Larry's ready for me to clean up my huge mess. Spending so much time at Donny and Jessica's has inspired Larry and I to do a little more work on our house. I can't believe how much work they've put into their house this last month, and it looks so good. We're going to try to patch the paint in the guestroom where a border was in hopes that we don't have to repaint, hang some of the pictures that we still have sitting around, and organize the basement (the task that I'm dreading the most!).
It seems like fall gives me the inspiration to set more goals and get organized. I know most people feel that way in January, but even though I'm out of school, the beginning of the school year always seems like the start of a new year to me (I'm sure that's partially due to the fact that Larry's residency falls into the same school-year schedule).
The happiest news of the weekend is that Keri found a couple to stay with Grandpa Ford. He is being released from rehabilitation and nursing this month, but he's not ready to live on his own and we knew the home healthcare that we have arranged would not be enough support for him. Luckily Keri found a young couple (and one that she actually knows well, which is a relief to us all) that will setup their home in Grandpa Ford's basement and help him a few hours everyday in between school and work schedules. Hopefully it will be beneficial to all of them. We feel so lucky to have everything worked out!
