……began with Sandie Girl picking me up at mom’s to begin our grand adventure. Off we Went to Oxnard with a stop first to see Melissa and Nicks home in Port Hueneme. It was a beautiful drive…..
I loved seeing my painting of Wisteria that Sandie and Jim commissioned as a wedding gift for Melissa and Nick.
Did I love this kitty cat more? You decide.
Kitty was just like Kita….loving to be rubbed and petted until you’re quite exhausted!
Now I have to tell you that this young couple is by far the most creative, talented and enterprising pair. Do yourself a favor and check out Melissa’s blog at www.houseattheharbor.com for so many wonderful ideas. I’ll be showing you a few. Best of all, Melissa tells you how to do everything so economically! Can you believe they made this wonderful treehouse bed for Jakey?
Not only did they make this amazing crib that will eventually convert into a full bed, Melissa painted the charming stencils in this wonderful nursery soon to be occupied by Noah.
O.K., if you have a photo that’s more precious than this I’d sure like to see it. Here’s Jacob A.K.A. Jakey showing me his Ninja Turtle outfit.
Foxy’s pretty cute too!
Sandie Girl wrapped the presents for Melissa in the cutest way. The baby shower party theme is Pooh Bear and sweet Diane Dennis supplied the Pooh paper!
The little sunflower says ‘Veggies from Rabbit’s Garden’!
Let’s hear it for the cupcakes. Sooooo good! I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!!!
We love presents…...
And cooking at the stove and playing in a big box and…….
Jakey soon commandeered the Pooh Bear I got for Noah…..
Let’s open that tower of fun…..
Here’s the wonderful blankie I already showed you when Sandie came over last week…..Wonder if I’ll have to remind her about mine.
Sandie Girl with Kate, our hostess…..
Hey, I thought we were leaving. Honestly, I have never seen so many toys….in both homes…. it was just like being in a toy shop and here it was hazardous for adults as there were toys literally everywhere!
Time for grown up toys…...
I’ll take this one…..
Sandie & I had stopped at the Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard…..
Always wonderful to see the ocean…..
Time for a little R&R poolside…..
A surprising number of boats docked nearby…...
It was too late to fulfill our mission to bring home strawberries…...
This was the second stand we tried…..all sold out (the next one was closed)!
But it was wonderful to see and smell the eucalyptus trees……..
So home we headed……thank you Sandie Girl for a perfect day!
