Well, here it is almost 11:00 Tuesday morning and I "may" finally be getting the chance to post.  Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Week-end.  It was a long (but went fast) productive, enjoyable week-end over here.  Let me see if I can catch this up quickly.

My mom left around 2:00 on Friday afternoon for my sisters and truthfully I was tired, and hot.  We have had several days now of hot and humid weather and I am not going to lie, I am DEFINITELY getting a little sick of it all.  Soo, Friday night we had a nice cool Taco salad and didn't do much of anything at all.  Sat. morning we chatted and caught up (hubby and I are treasuring this time even more than ever now) and made our plans.  It was my middle son John's 36th birthday and we were to have our annual Class family beach day that day as well.  We have done this 4 years in a row now so guess we can call it our new tradition, haha.  It works out well as John's birthday always seems to fall somewhere near in the Labor Day week-end.  We all met down at Huntington Beach and brought our dinners and had a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL time enjoying the sun, the water, and the company.  My 3 sons don't get a lot of chances to be all be together anymore with where we all live from each other, so these days are even more treasured now.  Their children all get along soo well and truthfully it really adds to the pleasure for all of us.  When my kids were growing up we were at the beach sooo often it was almost as if we lived there.  Needless to say, it is DEFINITELY a favorite spot for us all.  My boys rarely get together (if ever) that it doesn't end up eventually in some type of a wrestling match, haha.  Dad is usually in on the action as well.  I happened to catch the wrestling match on film, however getting these three guys to "pose" together took A LOT of coaxing from me, but they eventually did it for me...

The kids had a wonderful time as always.  I could watch them all run around down there for hours.  The water LOOKED beautiful, but there were a lot of rip tides which made it difficult to swim much, but they all gave it their best shot.

We headed for home around 7 pm, tired but happy.  On Sunday we went down to San Diego as usual for church and lunch at James and Larissa's.   We left around 2 and caught a movie on our way home.  It was a good day too.   On Monday we decided to spend the day working around the house.  Guess that's how we celebrate Labor Day, haha.  We actually got A LOT done including putting up all of my Fall decor, deep cleaning the leather couches in the family room, grocery shopping for the week, AND working out on the front porch.  My flowers and plants were really needing a good going over.  It was a good feeling to get this all done.  While my hubby BBQ'D some steaks, I ran over and picked my mom up.   This morning we got up and ran over to get some blood work done for her, and here we are.  Time goes soo fast anymore.  There is lots to do this week, so I will be a busy gal again.  Hope you all have a wonderful week.....



  1. What a nice weekend I love the shots of the beach. At least it was cool there right? I am tired of this heat too, today was unbearable.
    You have 3 very nice looking sons.
    I am glad you got so much accomplished on Labor Day. I always think it is good to get started on the Fall projects that weekend and it sounds like you did.
    I hope you have a wonderful week it is always nice getting caught up with you.

  2. Hi Debbie, I love your new header!!!! Your home looks so much like fall; I'm hoping your weather cooperates soon. Your pics of the beach made me miss that part of Ca. I've finished the quilt but can't post a photo until I give it to my girl. Hope you have a wonderful evening my dear friend.
    Love, Noreen

  3. So glad you had this time with your family. Time with family always makes us feel better. Love the great pics. A good looking family for sure! Blessings for a good rest of the week!
