Spring Cleaning & Wedding Favors

      And you're thinking....WHAT?  Well, that's what I'm up to this week.  Cleaning cabins everyday for 3-5 hours, then hanging out in the lodge, filling little tins with pastel M & M's and putting cute little stickers on the lid for John & Alicia's wedding on May 8th!!

      Both chores have to be done....and both will get done.  I have a wonderful friend from church helping me clean.  She keeps me on task and she's doing a great job.  I love walking into the cabin after we've cleaned it...everything sparkles and smells so fresh. 

      I also love working on the wedding favors.  I'm thinking of those 2 youngsters getting married in a week and looking forward to sharing that special day with them.  It will be such a special weekend with our whole family together.  And yes, there might be some tears from this Mom.  Weddings are an exciting time and an emotional time.  And we have to keep John on his feet!  When Max got married, John was 16, a groomsman, and fainted dead away during the ceremony!  Then, sister Jen saw it happen since she was a bridesmaid and got light-headed worrying about John and had to sit down....after we made sure everyone was okay, the ceremony continued and we laughed about it as the years went by.  So, we'll all be reminding John to stand tall and not lock his knees up there....or we'll be picking him up again!

      Here's a few photos of the favors....they're more exciting than clean cabins....and most of you have seen the cabins!  Check back for some great wedding photos when we get back from this very special wedding.

Congrats, John & Alicia!!!
