Wonderful Fall Weekend

I have been so excited and I admit more than a little nervous about this coming weekend.  I’d been wanting to host an open house forever so I finally bit the bullet. It was long over due.  Anyway, I got a few nudges from Facebook friends and I knew it was now or never.  I think everyone had a ball.  I know we certainly did. October 17, 2014 We started this weekend on friday night when we had some very special guests at our house for dinner.  You know how we live close by the Abbey of Regina Laudis, actually smack dab in the middle of it?  Well my husband is very good friends with a lot of the people there and ever since we moved into our home we have been trying to get together with them for a house blessing.  Well 2 years have passed but we finally…

SwissStock 2014

In case you are wondering what a SwissStock is, well simply put, it is a gathering of all the Greater Swiss Mountain dogs and their families that are related in some way to our two Swissy’s, Dutch and Hauser.  A kind of family reunion. SwissStock came about last year after we hosted a small gathering at our house for Dutch and his siblings. You can read all about that reunion here if you’d like. One of the “Moms”(Marjie) called me and asked if we would be interested in hosting another Swissy event this time for ALL of the Aegis Swiss Mountain dogs and their families.  It would be for an entire weekend with everyone camping out in our big field, staying in the Bunkhouse, bunking in the big barn or even sleeping in their cars. A Swissy Woodstock, a weekend of peace, love and Swissy’s!  Welcome to Camp Swissy!  We set…

Our first visit at The Bethlehem Bunkhouse!

The Bethlehem Bunkhouse opened it’s door this weekend. Come on in and stay awhile. We had our very first guests come Friday night for a romantic get-away weekend.  I was feeling very excited because this was a women I had met from Facebook and we became good friends through the world of blogging.  If you have some time please go pay Bridget a visit here to read her wonderful stories and too funny adventures.  Give her a hug for me, ok? I wanted everything to be perfect for her and her husband Eric. I wanted them to feel at home. Does that look like a chicken to you? We had a major snowstorm the day before they came. Then more snow the next morning. Even more snow while they were here.  We got a whole lotta snow! All the way up to our dining room windows! I was afraid they…
