52 Weeks!

It's been so many years now since the 'Invasion'. There were eight of us that invaded their home. My three girls, Miranda, Mercedes and Marina, my best friend Marcie and her three girls Rebecca, Katie and Hannah. We all piled into my station wagon and took the five hour or so trip to La Jolla to spend some time with Marcie's parents.

The house was amazing. There was a beautiful room filled with a collection of spoons. There was a collection of clocks throughout the house. We counted them but there were so many ...

One of the evenings Marty brought out her button collection. It was crazy how many buttons there were. She had grocery bags full of sheets of buttons and other containers full of them.

They were both so welcoming to us. The trip was so much fun!

Marty let me pick some of the buttons to bring home with me. I was so thankful. Marty passed away several years later. When she passed on Marcie's Dad, Bart gave me these very special buttons. They are a treasure to me. A reminder of that wonderful trip we took so many years ago.
