Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day!

What a month, I can hardly believe it is almost over! Let's have a re-cap!

The BIG event of this month was that my grandpa block turned 80! Wow, Eighty! This is my moms dad.....We had a surprise party for him at my mom and dads house........ Now keep in mind, My mom is one of FIVE children! We surprised him by having all of his kids here! As, if that wasn't a big enough surprise, we had more in store for him! I am one of 14 grandchildren between my grandpa's 5 children. All of us were here....Except for one. THEN between us 14 grandchildren, we now have 14 GREAT Grandchildren. WOW, is my grandpa blessed or what?!?

So, Friday was his actual birthday. As we always do, we had breakfast at skillets to celebrate! I was totally excited, as I knew my one aunt that visits more often than the others was already here, and my grandpa didn't know that yet! So, when he saw them walk in I think he was surprised but, not shocked! THEN my cousin Cody, which I haven't seen in years, and years was already in town,(actually had gotten in about 6 am) and he had breakfast with us as well, now that was a SURPRISE! So, we went on with the morning and we then decided we should let the rest of the family, that cruised into town all throughout the day see him Friday night instead of Saturday, so we went to my uncle's house, and had pizza and wings, and slowly everyone just started appearing, I think he was overwhelmed with excitement to have us all together at one time! I know I was!

So, Saturday was the BIG day! My mom had invited several people that he used to work with at the Estero Post Office, and others that he hadn't seen in awhile. It was so nice to see everyone, and the glow in my grandpa's eyes. It was the best day ever!

Sunday was the Jen Starr Event here at the shop, and as usual it was a blast! We had a great turnout, with several people who learned a ton of new inking techniques including myself! It was a great day!

This week, has been a busy month end, with lots of classes, and daily specials here at the shop! We are excited about the new arrivals coming in very soon!
