My good friend, Emily, and I took our kids to the Marion County Fair recently. Our main goal was to see the wiener dog races, since we both own Dachshunds. We had so much fun! This is Brynn, Blake, Avery, and Allie on a fire truck.Watching a magic show. It reminded me of one of Avery's regular prayers, "Thank you, Lord, that magic isn't real." She liked it, though! My angels in a police car - bit of a scary thought!Emily and I, both being very cheap people, refused to buy tickets for a ride. However, a very nice woman walked up to us and gave us just enough tickets for all the kids to have one ride! They picked the blue airplanes.Blake and Avery are such good friends! Emily and I are thinking we're going to have plenty of material if we ever have the need to put together a wedding slide show for the two of them! Boy, would I have some cute grandkids!Avery loves the smell of the petting zoo...Waiting for the wiener dog races to start.Get along, little doggies! This was really fun. Next year we'll bring Scooby and Raleigh.What a blessing to have such good friends!
I'm saved by grace, through faith in Christ. I've been married for 12 years and have two daughters. I am a stay-at-home mom and wouldn't have it any other way. The days are sometimes very hard and the work is absolutely exhausting, but the most rewarding thing I could think of to do. I truly feel that the investment of my most quality hours of the day put into my children will reap rewards for the rest their lives, and in turn, my own. I have so many other things I'm interested in and every once in a while I get to pursue them, but most of them are so trivial in comparison to loving the Lord and my family!
