Photos and a Funny Tag!

Just had to share this first shot of Kennedy in her princess outfit - brushing her hair! :)

Last Sunday we went to a little festival in town at the Mahaffie Farmstead. They were having Wild West re enactments and lots of olde time performances and crafts. We thought Kennedy would LOVE the Wild West Show - and she did! UNTIL they started shooting fake guns and using whips! The loud noises FREAKED her out. As you can see below - she is in Daddy's arms.So we just visited the rest of the farm! She loved all the animals of course! Even kissed a humongous cow!!!!There were some men playing fiddles and singing under a tree. Kennedy loved the music and danced and danced and danced!!!

Forgot to thank Kory for naming me a Rockin' Girl Blogger!!! Hehehe!! Thanks girl!!!

Scrappin' again!

So...we have kept busy this week at always!

Today we watched cousins Logan and Elijah. Below Daddy read to Kennedy and Logan...
and then here they are 15 minutes later!!!! Too cute!Tonight we went to the park for a nightime picnic! The photos did NOT turn out at all, but I still wanted to share!Also this week, we had our high risk OB appt. We got some excellent shots of the lil bugger at the sonogram! Our scanner has died, but I hope to share the photos soon! The baby is 100% healthy and growing right on target! I will be visiting another specialist soon.

And I finally am scrapping again!!! The card below is a hybrid card. I used Amy Teet's grunge kit for it!

The next 2 were made with the kit from More than Scrapbooking! Love me some My Mind's Eye!


Living for the Weekends!

It is so true that I feel I am living for the weekends lately! I love my job but I love family time more!!!!

Gotta share some photos of what we have been up to!
An 85th birthday bash for Dusty!

A typical face Kennedy gives us when she doesn't like what we have asked her to do. Her grouchy face!!!

Today we went to Autumnfest in Edwardsville. We met Grandpa Lou and cousins Logan & Elijah!

While there both Kennedy and Logan painted pumpkins!!!! They both really enjoyed it!!

Kennedy's finished pumpkin!And I am finally scrapping again!!! I was asked by a fabulous group of gals to join a blog group. We are called Scrap Faith. We are from all different religions and want to inspire others to scrap about their faith (or lack there of!). Our first challenge dropped today and below is my layout. Head on over to our blog and join in the fun!!



We have been soooo busy lately! I just wanted to share some photos of what we have been up to recently!

For Labor Day we visited Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead - one of Kennedy's favorite places! I just loved this photo of her! I know it isn't in great focus, but I still love it!

This last weekend was Old Settler's Day in our town. It is a 3 day long festival with lots of fun stuff to do and yummy things to eat! We volunteered to walk in the parade with our wonderful church. Jeff handed out water to spectators. I pulled Kennedy in the wagon. I really thought she would love it and get into waving at people. Nope. She didn't ever realize she was in a parade! She spent the ENTIRE time using her wipes to clean! She cleaned her entire body, her shoes, the wagon and everything in the wagon! Goofy girl!

Of course all great kid events have carnival rides! And Kennedy is fearless so she wanted to do them all! She rode a bunch and didn't want to leave!

Riding the fishy!!

Going down the HUGE slide with Daddy!

Riding a zebra on the carousel!
The alligator roller coaster - I think it was her favorite!
I loved this shot of the ferris wheel. And yes - she rode this one with Daddy too!

That's all for now! I will be back on again with more photos!!! :)
