I’ve missed some important highlights over the past three months. I’m playing catch up before we move on to the holidays!
Elaina’s sixth birthday! She was beyond excited to have her girlfriends help her celebrate. Her big gift was a new bike! She loves her wheels.
For a cute, easy and fun way to make cupcakes, fill colorful ice cream cones with cake batter and bake as usual! Too cute!
Anjelia’s fourth birthday! She was so thrilled with her big day!
Chocolate cake, of course! She loved decorating it with chocolate candies. YUM!!!
Lydia received the Way To Go award at school for being a good classmate and friend. She is such a good girl!
The kiddie wagon.
Our annual hayride was fun as always. Years ago we started out doing it in town on Halloween night. It was so fun going through town and throwing candy to all the trick or treaters. When Mom and Larry moved to the country we started doing it on a Saturday afternoon. Our friends Tom and Karen and Carl and Mary have joined us for years. The last couple of years my family has started joining in, too.
We decided to adorn our faces with matching freckles!
Carl and Mary
Mom and Dad D joined in the fun. Dad D look pretty relaxed!!!
James and Tom. Mom was not happy with me when she realized I didn’t get a single picture of Karen. I thought I got everyone. OOPS!
Mama kitty and her litter! We had a fun time on halloween. We traditionally start at Carl and Mary’s house. Carl always has very fun goodie bags made for the girls. We trick or treat our way to Aunt Joyce’s. She made adorable candy necklaces for the girls this year. Then we trick or treat our way back to Carl and Mary’s where we warm up before we head home.
I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for Abby at my home! Mary and I had a fun time planning it, with help from Karen, too! CONGRATULATIONS ABBY!!!
Oh my goodness! I almost forgot to mention the GARTH BROOKS concert!!! Yes, I was there on night number three!!!!!!! What an amazing thing to be a part of. He is so humble and generous!!! I’ve heard soooooo many stories this past week about amazing things he’s done. One night he found out it was a woman’s birthday and he signed his guitar and gave it to her during the concert!!!! A big thanks to Johnny and Shelly for sharing tickets with us!!! AMAZING!!!!
****We’ve also been enjoying our beautiful fireplace. It’s so fun to sit and warm myself in front of it each night. I can’t get the dishes or anything done in the evening. The fire calls me to it and makes me feel extremely relaxed and sleepy.
