When She Dresses Herself

This is the outfit Lauren chose to wear yesterday :) Luckily it was cold here so she couldn't go out with the shorts and the t shirt on. She appears to be very self expressive already:)

Ducks, Blopens, and Dogs

We have had a fun few days, yesterday we took Lauren to feed the ducks at a local park, then today she played with blopens for the first time, and she also shared fruit snacks and hugs with Jake. And just think, it's only Monday :)

How Did She Get This Big ?

A very wise friend known as the Dragon posted pictures of her precious girl with pumpkins over the last 3 years so when I started looking at Lauren's pictures with pumpkins I could not believe how fast she has grown and how much she continues to change and grow each day. Here's the last 3 years fall pictures. Enjoy.....

Fancy Socks And New Shiny Shoes

Sundays are very rushed for us so this week I asked Lauren to please go and pick her socks and shoes out so we could go to church and here's what she picked. " fancy socks and her new shiny shoes " She totally cracks me up :) and no picture of Lauren would be complete without her tongue sticking out or her being a silly girl :)

Annslee would have loved it :) They even had talking pumpkins telling the kids that God loves them.Of course there was a gift shop and we couldn't leave without pumpkin bread and pumpkin treats :)

Daddy's 40th Birthday !!!!

Steve turned 40 and to celebrate we had a surprise party for him last night. We had a great turnout and he was really happy. The church went in and got him a big ryobi tool set as a gift and he of course LOVED it. :) Lauren picked him out a shark puzzle as a gift, that's what she wanted to give him so that's what we bought. HA

Where Have We Been ?

At the fair...... Our church has a booth at the Cumming fair and our family has been working it every night since last Thursday and then all day on Saturday's & Sunday's. It ends this week but it hasn't been all work, Lauren has been riding rides, playing games and eating lots of fair foods.We have had a great response at the fair to our church, we are handing out pens, magnets and balloons and also having drawings for Kroger gift cards. since the fair started we have had 400 hits to our churches website so that's really neat. Here's a few pics of the last few days.

The Booth

The skybucket ride, she liked it but was happy to get off of it and so was I :)

The boats were more like it and they are on the ground :)
