I was just dreading this day...It was just so fun to have Kelley and Tegan here together! We had such a great visit and I really could not be happier for Tegan. He is so changed, so content and settled. We took some engagement pictures and they ordered for yours...Kelley is so excited to plan her wedding for 2010! Possibly June, she says! Tegan just kept saying, every chance he got, "See Mom, didn't I tell you this one is special...isn't she so cute?" He was right! Dave and I really enjoyed every minute! It was sad to see them go this morning. The flights home (3) were easy than the ones on the way here. The made it home to Grand Junction by 8:30 (our time) after starting out at 5 am. Long day for the two of them! I hope Kelley had fun and enjoyed meeting every one who loves Tegan!! Now I look forward to meeting Kelleys' family!

Check out Papa having some fun with Cayden! Sarah gives Uncle Tegan a big hug...she says he is still the BEST!!

Tegan and Kelley...ready for a Lesjak Family Road Rally!
Here we have Team 2, the ONLY team that actually went on a Road Rally! Team 1, along with Dave and I, headed right to the restaurant for some drinks and the Cavs game!! Sneaky!!
Everyone ended up at the BoneYard for dinner!! Our Dagmara was a little late but she made it through the ice storm!! Sadly...she missed this photo opt!

I did snap this lovely picture of her later in the evening!! We all had a really nice dinner then it was time to head home...or so Kelley thought! Tegan took Kelley to this pretty little spot to ask her to marry him!

Kelley and Tegan ... Back home and Celebrating! The ring is beautiful, as is the girl! We knew Tegan would choose someone just like Kelley! She is delightful! Kelley has a sharp sense of humor...perfect for this outgoing personality...and she makes Tegan so HAPPY!!

And just look at that ring... so stunning! Congratulations Kelley and Tegan!

HO HO HO...It just can't get any JOLLIER around here! Oh the things I do to amuse myself!! My TC Wilkinson is like a jolly little elf. Merry Christmas!!

To my friend Katy Laser...Thank you for reading and sending your comments!! Merry Christmas to you and your Mom & Dad!! Tell them I said Hello!

Dave and I are busy planning some fun activities for Tegan and Kelley's visit. A little Lesjak Road Rally is in the works. We plan on showing Kelley some sights from Tegan's past! We will make it tough enough that even his sisters and brother will have some trouble figuring it all out! Teams of 4...cameras involved...lots of puzzles...directions to follow...and... FUN!!!

Christmas Cookies!

So...everyone knows I do not bake much...that's an understatement!!! But...I decided it was time to step up to the Meme/Grandma plate and bake the sugar cookies just the way Gertie did with my girls! Sarah was excited to jump in and help!! First we baked for her REALLY BIG SHOW at Best Beginnings!!

Sarah was so proud to take the cookies to school on the show day!! She sang songs and then we all had some punch and cookies afterwards! Then we decided to bake again!! We made more Christmas Cookies and we made cookies that spelled... S a r a h and M o l l y!! Then Sarah got busy "painting" her name!!

We measured the sugar, the flour, the vanilla, and the baking powder... and, maybe, just maybe, I measured up to Grammie Gert!
