Show and Tell Monday ~~Aloha

Hi,,, well, I have been very busy this last week. Besides my job, I had a petsitting job all week that I had to stay overnight. My boss has had jury duty and is on a long trial, I am her personal assistant and this week I have had to do a whole lot of assisting. LOL. She had been planning this Luau-pig roast for some time now. So I helped take care of some details and need to drive into Phoenix everyday after court to pick her up and bring her home. I am still packing, cleaning and sorting also. The point of all of this "do ya feel sorry for me yet?" LOL I didnt make one single thing this week. So ya all get to see family photos from the Luau. I hope I dont bore you silly. Thanks for stopping by.

The first picture is my oldest daughter Valerie and my son in law Adam, and the handsome little guy is Jace my grandson. The second picture is my youngest daughter April and her boyfriend, a pretty great guy, and the little dude is Mikey my other grandson. The third picture is Jeff. He isnt too happy about having his picture taken, but hey he is kinda cute. And the last photo is my boss and dear friend Kay and the luau pig. All of the guests sitting at my table decided he need a name, so this is Alphie. I couldnt bear to eat him though. I mostly like fruits and vegtables. I will tell you one thing, it was 108 and I felt as cooked as poor Alphie.

I hope you all have a great day. I cannot wait to get my new studio up and running. I have some great new plans and cant wait to share them. I will be stopping by my friends of Make Mine PInks blogs today and I am looking forward to seeing whats new. Until next time.

Hi Gail,
Please don't feel blog is all about family and grandsons and not one thing about work....there are just simply not enough hours in the day. Your family is wonderful....and the pig....well, I must tell you, I would have eaten Alphie!!

Hi Gail, I think it's wonderful to see that beyond our work we have beautiful families. Yours is just lovely! I have to say, I would not have eaten Alphie either! I stay clear of meat. Looking at him reminds me of the baby piggies I saw for sale this weekend. My DH looked at them and said yummy. I just can't do it! LOL. Have a great week and thanks for sharing.

Looks like everyone had a fantastic time at the Luau. I know that you are glad to finally have it behind you though. Here's to a much quieter week.

Hi Gail

Wow Gail you have been so busy and yet you handle everything with such grace and kindness! I'd be going nuts trying to move, being away from home, driving all over, and helping organize a luau! Your family is awesome, and your boyfriend is very handsome! That luau looks like a lot of fun! The heat would have drained me, and I'm not sure I wound have had any of Alfie, esp. after naming him, but I sure would have had some of all the rest of the goodies!

Hope this week is more sane for you and you get lots done for the move. XOXO

Hi Gail,

No way I would have even been able to take a picture! I left a restaurant one time when my husband ordered fish, and they brought the whole fish! I walked home! But the other pics~fun!

Hey cuteness,
It's called show and tell Monday and I enjoy the tells just as much as the shows! Your family, boyfriend and boss look so nice. I'm with you though about Alphie. I couldn't eat him either.

Hope this week you can relax for at least 5 minutes every day.
