Happy Birthday, Brilyn!

Happy Birthday, Brilyn!
Can you believe this girl is 4?
We had a dolly and me
tea party for her on the 11th
and for some strange reason
those pictures have disappeared.
Totally vanished!
And they were so, so cute.
But - she will be having another
party this evening 
and another 
Dolly & Me Party
at the American Girl Store
in a few days,
so hopefully, we can get
more pictures. 
And I may have to have the 
girls dress up and bring their
dolls over, again, so
I can replace the pictures
I've lost. 

Anyway - I will try to post again
next week with pictures from
her American Girl Party!

We ran to Wichita Falls to meet
Heather and the girls at 
Chuck E Cheese's
to celebrate Grace's Birthday.
We had planned to have a family birthday
party this coming Sunday - but,
because Dustin had to work the Friday
after Thanksgiving and they ended
up staying home - they will be going
to visit their other grandparents
next weekend - so they can spend time
here and not on the road 
on Christmas!
But - Grandpa and I 
and Brilyn and Asher and Brandy
and Andrew were all able to
go to Chuck E Cheese.
So Grace had a nice little party!
(hopefully, they can celebrate again in Mo.)
And - she got something she has wanted
for a long, long time!
Look at the excitement on that face!

Happy Birthday, Weston!!!!!!

Can you believe this sweet
little boy is ONE!
 TODAY is his birthday,
but we celebrated Sunday!
His Daddy is working out
of town and couldn't be here
today - and will be working
next weekend, so he
got his gifts a little early.
I think he was happy about that!
Now - some grown ups in his life
might be getting a little more
exercise, helping him play with
his toys! He seems to need
a wagon ride!

Our Trick or Treaters!

I have been swamped
with work and am trying
to keep my new
blog up and running, so I
haven't been around much.
 But I did want to stop in
and share our little 
Trick or Treaters.
 Brilyn was Anna and Asher was Olaf.
I was the Fall Fest Photographer
for the local Farmer's Market
Fall Fest, and Brilyn and
Asher modeled for me.
These pictures were the 
Sample Images and they went
on the Fall Fest Flyers.

Three Kids At The Park!

One Friday when I was watching 
Weston, we invited 
Brilyn and Asher to join us

The BABY swing!
Brilyn sometimes, enjoys being
babied a bit, too!
After all, the boys can't get
ALL the attention!

An Amish Store and Restaurant

While my husband and I
were traveling to Hilldale, Ok
to take pictures of a high school football
game for CBS's Max Preps
I saw this sign.
We had left early and had time to
spare, so we stopped!
It was such a neat place!
 We didn't eat at the restaurant,
but we did take a look around and
we got a couple of things from the shop.
There were all kinds of jams and jellies.
 Honey and Bee Pollen
 Amish made tea towels and things.
 And a pie case full of delicious
looking pies!
I bought some fudge and it was delicious!
I also got a little book of 
Amish Home Remedies.
And while a lot of stuff was Amish made,
the store was probably more
Amish Inspired - than truly Amish.
The servers in the restaurant
wore English clothes
and there was no shortage of
