Most of us arrived sometime on Thursday. We met up at Starbuck's - Barb brought us all sunflowers!
There's Virginia, Linda B, Barb, Marcy, Janet, Linda W, Lin, Sheila, and Kathy.
Most of us took classes Friday and Saturday and stood in line for make and takes when we weren't in classes. Barb had arranged dinners for us on Friday and Saturday nights. Here's some pictures from Friday night:
top row, Linda B, Janet, Marcy, Lin, Linda W, Ava, and Sheila. Sitting, Kathy, Nancy, Judy, Virginia and Barb. Virginia is holding her famous Hero Arts sign, which she carries with her when she knows she'll be meeting up with one of us; we all write her a little note on the back as we meet her.
This is a group of Hero Hosti (what the Hero Hostesses call themselves): Marcy, Lin, Linda, and Judy standing, and Kathy, Nancy, Virginia, and Barb sitting. Now here's a candid taken after our Saturday night dinner:
Same suspects, but Jennifer joined us that night - she is on the top row, 3rd from the left.
Here is our support group: my hubby, Denny, Sheila's daughter Bess, Judy's daughter Kathy, and Dr. John, Virginia's hubby. Dr. John dubbed them the HAHADA: Hero Arts Husbands and Daughters Anonymous!! They acted as our paparazzi.....
Isn't this a sweet shot of Virginia and Dr. John? And here's one of me and Janet......we spent most of the day together on Saturday doing make and takes. She is a sweetheart - so glad we had that time to get to know one another better!
And just one more, a picture of just 5 of us, who have become friends through our common Hosti experience: Marcy, me, Nancy, Barb, and Virginia.
And, as if all of that wasn't exciting enough, Denny and I got word on Friday afternoon of the birth of our 3rd grandchild, little Owen!! We were over the moon!
And I'll leave you with this beautiful shot of his brother and sister meeting him for the first time:
We are so very blessed!
