Our First Annual Sisters Weekend was born because for the first

time in our lives, we found each of us in different cities and states. The first one was at my house in Georgia. I knew I had to come up with something creative to start our weekend because there has always been that who can out do the other.. it is usually Christine. We were younger, our mom always dressed us the same so I decided to get is matching PJ's just like when we were younger. Mom that one was for you. Then I headed in my scrap room to create a goody bag of sweets. This was something they could take home to remember our great weekend,

Our first day started off with a Quilt Festival for Christine. The beautiful quilts gave Gerri and I inspiration to do our own... but when I was told it required ironing, I quickly changed my mind. I will have to leave that to my older sisters. Sorry... We then headed to take some pictures by an old barn and the new barn with the no trespassing sign. Lucky we did not get shot at.

Our next stop was the famous Burt's Pumpkin Patch but on the way we decided to stop at the Apple Orchards since none of us ever saw them before. This is where we decided to get silly... first we took the usual posed pictures then I told Chris lets get some action shots and I began jumping in the air and Chris snapped away... soon we were laughing so hard we were peeing out pants. It felt good to just let out guards down and be kids again. You know I would love to show you these pictures but as funny as they were to look at, I would not post them for anyones pleasure. But I must say Casey got the biggest laugh of all. We then headed to the Pumkin Patch were my sisters were amazed at the size of the pumpkins. You don't get that in Florida.

We then headed to Charming Charlies that reminded me so much of my old favorite in Florida. Casey was spared this shopping trip to his delight... one trip to the store with Aunt Christine was enough for him. It was then home for dinner, drinks and more sister talk.

Day two started out with cold and rain but that did not stop us from spending the day at the Gold Rush Festival. Thought the weather was not good, we made the best of our last full day together. As the day came to a close, we relaxed by the fireplace. It was a great weekend and as I sit here and write this I am smiling from all the great memories and crying because I will miss my sisters very much. It has been a hard year being away from them for the first time in our lives but i am thankful that I know that I have two great sisters who will be there for me no matter what.

Today my sisters woke up to a freezing house of 58 degrees and were excited to get home to their families... or was it to leave my freezing house? Sorry girls. I was always the cold blooded one. I love you both and look forward to the next Sisters Weekend... Where to?
