Peanut Butter Balls

This is such an easy recipe but they are so very good. I tried them at a bake sale and loved them so I researched how to make them, if you like peanut butter then you'll love these too. They aren't pretty but they are tasty !!

On Saturday we took Lauren to Disney On Ice, it was a wonderful show. She loved it. It's a great lead in to Disney World which we are taking her to for the first time on December 26th. Can't wait.

Halloween 2011

Lauren decided to go as a light up princess this year for Halloween, I have a feeling this will be the last year we get to do princess type stuff as she is about to turn 7 and is already talking about stuff her friends were this year. No matter how hard you try to keep them little babies they just grow up on ya. :) She carved her pumpkin this year as a first, she has always painted pumpkins but not this year, she wanted to carve one. We did Trunk or Treat at church and also went to the mall to trick or treat so she is loaded with candy.

Fall Fun

Lauren didn't get a Fall break but we have been trying to have fun on Saturdays since the weather is so nice right now. Today we went to Country Fest which is a small town festival that had train rides, face painting, food, and shopping. It was just the perfect size for me and Lauren to do alone since Steve had a meeting all day.

Career Day

Today is Career Day at Lauren's school and she has decided that she wants to be a Fashion Designer when she grows up so she made a little book of designs and wore a bright outfit and hat with a fabric tape measure around her neck, she was so excited this morning to go to school and show off her creations.

A Special Gift

Someone from our church approached Steve with a bag yesterday and told him to take it to Lauren that it was a special gift that she had found for her, so tonight after dinner we let Lauren open it. She had gotten her 2 full Chinese tea sets both with dragons on them, Lauren was so excited when she saw them, they are both so delicate and beautiful. What a nice surprise and a special gift indeed.

We currently have 4 Hummingbirds that come and eat out of our bird feeder and they fight over it, the latest thing for us to do is watch it all take place. Lauren and I love to sit and watch these cool little birds come and drink and then take off real fast. Nature has some cool little animals in it for sure.

Flint RiverQuarium

Since today is Labor Day and everyone in our house is off of work and out of school we decided to take a day trip to Albany, GA to the riverquarium. It was very small but a really cool place,we all had a great time there. The city of Albany has these neat painted turtles all over the place that made me think of Nashville and the painted guitars.

Ocmulgee Indian Mounds

We decided to visit a local historical landmark today in Macon. It was an awesome place, full of history and information. We plan to go back once it's a little cooler and walk the trails on the river, it was so beautiful there but just too hot.

The earth lodge where politicians and religious leaders would meet, the floor is 1000 years old, notice the bird shape for the ceremonial rituals ?
