We had a Beta style going away party tonight for Kelly & Melissa. Kelly is moving to Olympia and Melissa is moving to Puyallup. They’ve both promised to come back once in a while – and we’ll hold them to it!
Alkie & Boo
Momma Connie & Melissa
Kamryn got to come enjoy the party too – she loved on Samson as usual! She likes to kiss him, have him kiss her, pet him, rub his belly, and brush his hair. :)
And ride him?! AH!
My Mom found these old Glamour Shot pictures of Melissa and I from about 1994 and Karlye thinks they’re SOOOOO funny! She has been posing “Glamour Shot” style ever since, so we had to have a photo shoot tonight after the party!
“Ok Karlye, you wierdo!”
Oops – Melissa, still Glamour Shots, not gangsta style!
Kate told me she had something in her car for me and it was this basket for my quilts! I have seen pictures online of quilts stored like this and I LOVE it! Karlye and I rolled mine up and they fit perfectly! I love love love it!
Everyone brought appetizers to share tonight, so I used the opportunity to try out some more recipes from Pinterest!
Jessica had this hot corn dip at her Pampered Chef party & I thought it was delish! It’s really easy to make and wows the crowd!

Thaw whipped topping and in a large salad bowl stir together whipped topping, yogurts, and pudding powder. Let this set up in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
