Ellie was in heaven staying with Papa Lee and Grandma Jolene and their 5 cats (they do have a big house). Her best buddy was Gunther–Papa made her promise not sneak Gunther in her bags when we were packing to head home.

This layout used Heather T’s new Alpha Stickers available at Mscraps.

Grandma Jolene also treated us to her famous buttermilk pancakes one morning. I was happy with them with a bit of butter and Caribou Cream Maple Syrup (my favorite!), but the girls needed a bit more fun.

Anna being the fashion-conscience teen that she is, was thrilled to learn while shopping in North Dakota, that she can finally fit into ladies sized shoes. This was a big milestone for her.

These last two used Heather’s new Happy Times.
