Just Busy

Can't we all relate to the fact that life is JUST BUSY right now? And with the holidays just around the corner, there is no slowing down in sight. I had a friend ask me what we were getting the kids for Christmas. Really, we have hardly thought about Christmas and are just taking it one day at a time. So instead of worrying about the future, I'll share with you some of what we've been up to! These photos are once again out of order, but you can enjoy them just the same.

We took the kids to the state fair again this year and they had lots of fun. The weather was perfect and Daddy won them some stuffed animals, which I am totally ready to get rid of. Please let me know if I have any takers...please:). The 4-H section at the fair had some great agriculture lessons so that was fun to partake in. Plus we were able to meet Elsie, the Borden cow. It was a fun trip!

At the fair and ready to ride some rides!
Happiness is!!
One of our babysitters, Miss Maya, came to deliver a "happy" for LG and J on Friday. She also happens to be one of my running partners. She is a senior at RHS and runs cross country/track. Maya is such a great role model for teenagers today. So sweet of her to come by and the kiddos love her!
I thought it'd be a great idea to have a girls' day yesterday to get some errands ran for Jake's upcoming birthday party. Well, this was about the only time she was happy during the trip. LG is not a fan of shopping!
At some friend's house last night, I caught Jake camped out by their dog. Matt knows it's only a matter of time before we get Jake his own, but certainly not this year.
Out of order.....again at the fair.

Digging up vegetables that grow in the ground at the 4-H exhibit. 1 out of 2 looking at the camera ain't bad! :)

And this is a pretty typical look at our life in pictures. One will always be upset about something! Jake was telling me that he was trying his best to smile and LG thought she would add her touch of personality to the picture.
That's all folks!

I need one of those Tech mini flags. Do they sell those at the Tech Bookstore? Russell would love it.:) Your flowers look pretty, too!
