New family album

The poor neglected LoveShack hasn't gotten much attention lately, I haven't really been in the mood and haven't had a ton of time either. I started this mini album over a month ago and I've thought about going out to the Shack to work on it many times but never did. Today the boys went fishing in the late afternoon and I was home alone with nothing to do so I headed out to "maybe" work on some scrapping. I had everything pulled out already so I got to work and completed the album in about 3 hours. Sweet! Then I cleaned up and went into the house and saw is was 7:30!! Time flies in the LoveShack. Enjoy!

Rachel and Sean's first house

Rachel and her boyfriend Sean moved into their first house together this weekend. It a funky little place in Bremerton, close to both of their jobs. We hauled all of Rachel's stuff up their this morning and helped them gets things set up and put away. Rachel took me downstairs and showed me the basement, holy cow, it's like something from a bad horror movie. Check out the massive rat trap!! It's an old house right in town in a really busy street, not necessarily the perfect house- but it's perfect for them for a first place. They were both really excited and happy and grateful for all of the help we gave them. Jim made a run for lunch and we had a classic first place meal, sitting on the floor while we were waiting for the couches to get there. I'm really going to miss having my baby here in town, she;s so far away now, but I fully support her decision to move away and start her new life. Sean is a great guy that loves Rachel a lot, he treats her good and is a good "fit" for our family too. Love you both!

Morgan's Prom 2011

Here are a few pictures of Morgan all dressed up for her Prom tonight. We are so proud of her accomplishments this year- she has been accepted to the University of Washington in Seattle and starts in the fall. She received a large grant and is busy turning in scholarship applications to help pay for the rest. This will be here final high school dance and she is going with one of her best friends. I'm so glad she brought her dress over so we could take these pictures!! She's lovely. Love the last picture- Jim convinced her to sit like a "saloon girl" and she totally went for it.

Fishing 2010

Jim took all of the kids fishing at one point or another on opening day and as you can see, it was a beautiful weekend for fishing. In the morning he took Morgan, Cameron and Mike and they met up with Jeff and Cody Schoening, unfortunately there are no pictures of them or Mike! Later in the day he took Morgan and I out, once the sun came out. I'm a fair weather fisherman so I wont go unless there is guaranteed sunshine. Check out the picture of Cameron, he looks a little like the uni bomber! Ashleigh even got into the fishing action and on that trip out Jim caught his biggest fish so far, it was over 6 lbs and was definitely a keeper.
