Blue Mosaic Monday ~ Celebration!


Things have been busy around our home in Washington State. We had 18 people near and dear to us over for a celebration on the 4th. Dear barbecued Tri-tip for sandwiches and we had some great veggie sides. Cookies and Cheesecake for dessert. The center photo in the collage is of our daughter Katie. The lovely ladies in the bottom photo are Jamie, Laura (our DIL), Lucy, Katie and Bridget. Jamie, Lucy and Bridget are sisters.

On Sunday morning I drove Dear to the airport and we’ll be apart for about 4 weeks. Boohoo!Β  On Sunday afternoon we picked up my niece Debbee from the airport for a 3 day visit. This coming Sunday I’m helping my daughter with a Bridal shower at our home. We hope our vision for decorating the gazebo for the shower comes together…

Thanks for stopping by. To see more Mosaics visit Mary at Little Red House. To see more Blue visit Smiling Sally.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  5. Hi Ellen, looks like a fun 4th party! Bridal showers are fun. 4 weeks will just go by fast especially when your hands are full. Have a great week.
    P.S. We arrived early so there was not much people. We were able to take a lot of photos.

  6. Hello Ellen B.,

    Four weeks!! That stinks!!!! I don’t know if I’d survive four weeks without my hubby. I will keep you in prayer ;-). It looks like another great celebration at your place…could I be one of your sisters for just one holiday…LOL!!!

    So, I have an award for you on my blog. I don’t know if you’re tired of receiving awards, but this one is real special and you don’t have to post about it either…just accept it PLEASE!!!

    I hope you have a great wedding shower and I can’t wait to see the pics.

  9. Hi Ellen! My daughter is named Katie, too. She’s away for ten days at a student conference and I’m really missing her. Don’t know what I’ll do when she goes away to college. 😦 Looks like you had a really nice 4th of July. Thanks for sharing your fun at Mosaic Monday. πŸ™‚
