Let it snow!

Or not. I think we got more snow today than all 6 years in Atlanta. Oh well. Bring it on. The kids had fun. Glad I bought the snow pants a few weeks ago when they were on sale.
Snowman didn't make it too long, you can see how it cracked at the bottom. I am sure we will have plenty more opportunities.

Pumpkin Patch

A couple weeks ago when Linny was here, we went to Wheeler farm and got some pumpkins, hay ride and maze. I am not a huge Halloween fan, but I love the fall and we had a great time.

Brave Girls Camp

A while ago, my cousin who is super creative, amazing, arsty, etc.. posted on FB she and her sister were starting a Brave Girls Club. I thought it sounded wonderful, but since I lack a few creative genes, I called a sister to see if they would go, as I can't go alone to these kinds of things as I am way to shy for that. We turned it into a sister's weekend and four of us went down to Idaho this weekend and had an amazing time.

We ate some amazingly delicous food.
And did some fun and very meaningful crafts.

Awesome bird I made.
I thought we would be intimidated by all the other talented people there (designers, people who had their own product lines, etc) but it was no big deal and we learned a lot from the other girls in so many ways.

Its hard moving to a new city and having no friends and trying to find our new groove here, so it was so nice to get away from that stress and just have fun with my sisters and some truly amazing people.

It really is life changing fun for women and I had an amazing time. Let me know if you want to go and I will go back with you!

I have a serious lack of pictures. Hopefully I can get more from the group. I just can't even describe the details and everything they did to make it the PERFECT weekend. It really was amazing.


How I love Idaho. I always wish we lived on a farm. I wish we had chickens. We had to settle for feeding Uncle Marq's cows.

And as always, we love our Pompie and Donna! Wish we had more time. At least I got some of Aunt M's rasberry jam. Yum!

Independence/random park

Trying to back post before I forget.
While we were on the road, we passed this random old school park, but it did have this cool spaceship toy and was a nice break from the car.
They also had a nice child area at the visitor's center in Missouri.
