August Birthday Celebrations

We began with a double celebration for Mark & Scott's birthdays as they are 10 days apart

 Dani found these t-shirts on the web & thought them perfect for Scott & Deidre for their present living situation!
 LiLi had made a birthday card for Uncle Scott
 This kid always designs something appropriate
 She was little "Suzie Homemaker" that day serving drinks & food.  Here she is fixing the birthday cake
 She had color coded the candles that they each had to blow out

 A week later we headed up into the hills to do the birthday thing again.  Seeing Scott's was that "special" number Deidre decided to have a last minute party for him with her family
 In the background is the ground clearing for the new house

 There were dogs everywhere.....8 in total

 The chickens have grown & were enjoying some outside time

A new home in the hills

Scott & Deidre sold the house on Scotch Bush & bought a beautiful lot in Pattersonville which is west of Schenectady.  It has all the amenities, water, septic, power, even cable but no house!  They plan to build one but.........
 .......this will be their home for the next few months

 The gazebo has a ceiling fan & tv so acts as another room as long as it's warm out.
 This is the beautiful view they have
 The dogs love it

 There's this huge pole barn for extra storage

 Complete with washer & dryer & extra refrigerator
 He has his equipment all ready to go
 Of course they have chickens already
 The kind with pantaloons!
 Doggy heaven
 They plan to build the house back in the woods to the right of the pole barn.  That will give them a beautiful view of the hills

Meghan's Shower

Meghan will be getting married in September & the shower was held a couple of weeks ago.  LiLi will be the flower girl & as she put it so eloquently to me "Nana I am not just the flower girl I'm also the pianist"  She will be playing the piano & has been working for months with Popster on the piece she is playing

As in everything she does she took her role in the shower very seriously  My granddaughters sharing an inside joke

  This was LiLi's gift which she designed & made herself (can you stand it๐Ÿ˜)  Matching ice cream bowls with their names inside

 She was making the hat out of the bows & ribbons

 A beautiful creation

 With her Mama

Love Val๐Ÿ’œ
