What a weekend this has been.
Excitement plus.

1st off - did you notice my new look blog?
I was lucky enough to win a Blog makeover from Katrina Chambers
Katrina is one clever chick.
Thanks Katrina I love my new look.
Katrina also has another blog called A Very Fine House check it out.

The second exciting thing this weekend was the engagement of child #4 Michael and his gorgeous girlfriend Chantelle.

The happy couple

Chantelle thought Michael did a great job picking the ring
She loved it

Love this laughing photo of Chantelle
