Trip to Dallas..... Lots of $$$$$

1 American Girl Doll...... $90.00

Smile on Grace's face after picking out her Samantha Doll....... Priceless

This was just our first stop on the trip. It took us forever to get there in the rain! The rain followed us all the way. I will add more in days to come. I am just pooped out! We had a great time in Dallas at the Great Wolf Lodge but all that fun takes it out of you.

Does anyone remember this? It takes me way back. My kids love the muppets and we were watching one of their kids channels and there was a little song from Banana Split. It got me thinking about the Muppet Show I was trying to remember this when I found it on you tube! They have everything out there!

Horsing around

Here are some pictures taken last week of Grace cantering on Baron. This was the first time for her to canter on any horse, she was so excited. She has been taking riding lessons for a couple of years and loves it.

Tag! You're It!

Annie at werehavingaball tagged me and I am going to try it. The instructions say to list 7 weird/random things about yourself. Here goes.

1) My fingers are double jointed. Actually not only mine are but my husband and all three of our children! I had never known anyone else like this and then I met my husband. Now we have added three more strange people to the world! lol
2) I love scary movies. I am not sure why I love them but I can't wait until October because they start showing them on TV. every year I watch the same ones, and when I new one comes out I get so excited. 
3) I have dreams about Tornados all the time! I haven't actually ever been in a tornado but I guess it is my idea of what it would be like. I have looked up what it means and dream books say that there is chaos in my life. I guess this is true!! I feel like I am always trying to juggle everything going on around me.

4) I never forget a face. My husband thinks it's crazy because I have actually been out and seen someone that I only met once and it could have been ten years ago and I will remember, also sometimes I have just seen a picture of someone and if I run into them I will know who they are from the picture even if it is a really old picture. On the other hand, I can't hardly ever remember phone numbers. Thank God for cell phones with phone books in them!!!
5) If there would be one food and drink I would have to choose to eat/drink for the rest of my life it would be Diet Coke and Tacos. Although I would have to throw in Chocolate..I would probably die without that!

6) I love knowing the name of a song and the singer/group. It is almost a game for my husband and I. We are huge music lovers. All kinds!! Everything from 50's to new music. If we hear a new song it is like a challenge for us to look it up and find out who sings it. Also, It will drive me crazy if I hear a song and can't figure out what the name of it is. I will get on the internet and type in all the key words trying to figure it out. I have actually been driving down the road and been writing lyrics down on a piece of paper and called Tom to find out what it was. Pretty Weird!!!

7) I am flat footed. It has been a problem I whole life. I have back problems and I had terrible leg aches as a child, I actually still get them sometimes. I don't like to walk very long because it makes my feet hurt really bad. If I could live somewhere that I never had to wear shoes I would. In the summer I live in flip flops because it's almost like not wearing shoes and in the winter I usually wear slip on shoes. I NEVER wear heals. On occasion I might wear those kitten heals but I even hate those. You probably won't ever catch me running a marathon.

So, who to tag?

I'll try these people:

Dawn @ Dawn's Place

Gina @  The Blackburn Bunch
DeeBee @ Rain or Shine
Dawn @ dawns diversions

Linnea @ neabear

Margo @ my5blessings

Go Eagles!

Last night my daughter cheered at the football game. It was a perfect night to be outside. It was very nostalgic for me because it was the same stadium where I went to football games. Time sure flys. It's hard to believe its been so many years. I am not saying how many years. hehehe She was so excited.
Grace and one of her good friends.
Go Team!

Halloween Is In The Air.

We went over to my mom's house for dinner tonight and when we came home the moon looked so spooky in the sky. My husband took this picture and I thought it looked pretty cool with the lights from our house. I had to share.

Flashback Friday

In honor of the Fair, I decide to share a picture of my Aunt and I when I was 15 years old.
I went to stay with her in California and we went to one of those Old Time Picture Booths.
While at the fair yesterday my friend Dawn and I pasted one and started talking about how we had taken pictures at one of those years ago. So, when I was looking for an old picture I found this and thought it would make for a good laugh.

It's not Fair!

Dawn beat me to the punch! She kidnapped my camera "I left it in her car", and posted her blog about our day at the fair first. She is such an overachiever!

Our first stop was for some yummy fair food. I can just feel my arteries clogging up right now!

Here is Dawn taking one of her pictures! Say Cheeeese...Fried Cheeeese!!!!

After we ate we took the kiddos over the the Petting Zoo! Ty ran from animal to animal! He was so excited! Camryn had to try to keep up, which isn't easy for anyone.

Here is Ty trying to communicate with the animals.

Next stop was to the Farm. He loved getting the eggs and riding on the tractor.

I can't believe they didn't fall asleep on the way home. They kept looking at each other and laughing. I think they had a great time. Such sweet memories.
