Has it really been that long?

Surely it is a sign of growing old when you don't post to your blog for this long - and it seems like it was just last week!  It's been a busy few months and I've not spent much time here.  Too bad there isn't an award for the most neglected blog.  To get back into the swing of things, I'l try to get caught up on some of the creative things that have been happening around the cabin.

My mom's birthday as well as Mother's day are both in May.  She's one of those moms that has everything and it is impossible to get her something that she either doesn't already have or that won't add to the endless items already sitting around her house.  So, the girls in the family got together and planned an outing for all of us.  We made a date for May 29th and met at her home.  The only bad thing was that we had a few that got sick (they don't even live together) and a couple that we knew couldn't go beforehand.  But we ended up with a group that turned out to be just the right size and we had a blast.

The way we invited Mom to the gathering was with an explosion box.  When she opened it on Mother's Day, it only contained the invitation rolled up and secured in the center of the box.  After we had our outing, we collected pictures from everyone (we all seemed to have taken the same pictures) and I put it all together for her.  We gave it to her just a few weeks ago.  It turned out pretty well and now mom can remember the fun we all had together.

Thanks for stopping by, and no, the big bad wolf didn't stop by the cabin.  All is still well in the lil cabin in the woods.  Blessings to you all!
