I totally went all out on the cake and the celebration this year. Don't ask me why, I'm not sure. In hind-sight it may not have been the best idea as we ended up starting to come down with swine flu a couple of days before their party...along with being sick with the stomach flu and colds, ALL in the month of October! Whew, we made it through, though and had a great time celebrating the life of my two eldest along with this new season, FALL! We weren't going to let a few hardships stand in the way of our enjoyment. We stuck it to those hardships and sicknesses and came out more content, more dependent on our Heavenly Father because of them.
Memaws and aunties, know just how to make a b-day memorable. We love them so much! Plus, they are quite the riot, don't you think?
Ate buttered popcorn and enjoyed treat bags with glee!
Coutryman farms is a GREAT place to be!
We had potato sack races, three legged races and jumped in the leaves...
and for participating in the fun, picked a lolly from the lollipop tree!
mhm, Mhm, MHM!
It was a beautiful fall day, sunny and crisp! Their friends joined in the fun and they all had a blast. So thankful for who these girls are becoming... they are beautiful souls with hearts that are soft.
Praying for them, thankful for them today and always.
Happy birthday my dear daughters.
I love you.

What on earth kind of cookie do you think this could be?
I have to say, this little girl has been rolling right on through some 'firsts' this week!
In my defense, all I can say, is that, 'NO!' is what instinctively comes out my mouth when a plate full of food is being pulled off of the table onto our laps.
Sadly, nay, because after all that stirring, mixing and baking...let me not get into the details, but suffice to say that the birdies, the ants and the squirrelies even shied away from this baked concoction! My imaginative kiddos had a blast making it but next time may I remind myself not to put the baking soda out... uhmm, yeah. They added a bit much and made it UN-eat-able... but again, they had a blast making it all on their own with their own sweet little hands and being able to imagine and set into motion a recipe all their own...so they didn't mind so much that we couldn't eat them!
