Catching up

First Post in a over two weeks and a lot has gone on. To start with right before Chelle went home to MN, we had a visit from Stella and John (aka. Muffin) as they had a full day layover in LA before continuing their return to Australia. Chelle picked them up from LAX and brought them to our place. They went for a walk around the canals of Naples and when I returned from work we all went to Parkers Lighthouse on the waterfront for dinner.

Then Chelle went home to MN to visit family and attend her college reunion. I'll hand the keyboard over to her to describe her trip.

Gram Shaffer came down to surprise me - She's quite a Rock Star for nearly 87 years old!!!! Too bad she isn't nearly as photogenic as one....heehee!

Sweet Auntie Laurie brought Grammy down with her so we could have some cuddles and catch up time too. It sure is cool how much family we can cram into just a few days~ way to go Shaffer/Patterson Clan!!!

Baby Ty is walking like a champ! I barely made it in time to sneak him kisses before his 1st birthday. Sure do love you little guy!

And here is another little one - Connor turned 1 year on Oct. 10th. We thought he could be a fourth gen. Oct. 11th baby (My Gram Patterson, Katie's mom, Doris, my little bro, Eric are all the 11th) but Connor has a day all to himself! So glad I could be there to celebrate it with them. It is still really hard for me to believe that Kate, who was "my baby" now has her own baby - and he's ONE!!!! Must mean that my Auntie Dode is getting old :) ps - Happy Birthday to you too sweet Auntie!!! XXOO

This past weekend we went to Autin to celebrate our two year anniversary with Jono and Jayme. It was WONDERFUL~ Dear friends, great weather, super food and lots of love always make for a good time! we did our part to "keep Austin weird" as those "hook 'em horns" cowboys say 'round those parts!

We even got to see our old house mate Luke who moved to Austin two years ago. Luke is doing extremely well pursuing his music career and seems very happy! He even showed off his new addition - the Lady Cheren.

All in all, a fabulous time this past couple of weeks reuniting with friends and family and most certainly a wonderful two years together as husband and wife. So many wonderful more to come!~ Stay tuned....
