Really Random Thursday, 8/29/13

Hi, Randomeers! Okay, so normally I would have said, "What? It's already the last Thursday of the month??" But this week, I'm saying, "What? It's already Thursday??" So unprepared.

We had a family reunion over the weekend. Some cousins have been missionaries in India and were home for a couple of months, so we combined getting together to visit with them, along with celebrating my parents 65th anniversary.

It was fun. Family members came from Washington, Texas, Arizona, Indiana, New Mexico, and probably some places I have forgotten.

Christa did the centerpieces: peaches and daisies. So pretty--and then you got to eat the centerpiece afterwards. Win-win.

Mark was the MC. He had also had a helper.

Who doesn't like to try this?
My brother was here from Texas.
After the weekend, I got sidetracked with my sewing room. Mark made this awesome design wall.
 Then it was time to start organizing. Wait until you see the pictures next week!
Random signs:
Charlotte put this on the bedroom door when she and her brothers spent the night a couple of weeks ago. She wanted to read in peace. I'm leaving it up--it makes me happy

This was on the screen during the sermon on Sunday:
This is always true

I found these when cleaning a drawer.

There is a reason I bought two packages. I don't have to explain that, do I?

Just because he is so cute...
  Your turn.

What a fun door sign... and it sounds like the family reunion was a big hit (and the cake, and the peaches, yum!). Where did you find those labels? I love them!

Such fun getting together with the family! I see a peace sign on the wall in your sewing room. Is that made with fabric? I'd love to see a picture of it.

Looks like a fun weekend! And I LOVE when my kids make signs like that too. It just makes me smile to see how their minds work. :)

Congrats to your parents. My grandparents had 60 years this summer and we had a family reunion as well.

A huge congrats to your parents- what a huge milestone! In a world where marriage seems so temporary these days it sure is nice to hear of a couple who has weathered over 6 decades together!

Wow your parents are an inspiration!! We will celebrating our 10th in a month, and that feels like a long time and just yesterday all at the same time already!!!

Lovely random post. (You're getting quite a lot of Randomeers!) Congrats to your parents, and fun to see your brother, too.

Can hardly wait until I see the finished room. Then I'll be shamed and get to work on mine. . . if I'm not grading!
