Kids, Butterflies, and Cute Stuff

The kiddos were playing in the backyard the other day, and discovered a bunch of beautiful butterflies.
They caught a couple, and here’s one of the beauties on Kerry’s finger.

The kids’ friend, Ethan was over at our house recently, and the 3 kids piled into the old recliner! As usual, Sarah’s like the mother hen, and she’s got a little boy on either side! 🙂

Science Museum w/ Friends

The other day, we went back to the Science museum and spent a little more time. This time, the kids and I went w/ my friend Suzanne and her son Ethan.   Below are just a few of the pics I got. {The others haven’t been processed yet. (Yes, I did say “processed”…I know…how “archaic” is that, huh?! =-) ) }

Gracie’s 4th B-day

I’m getting these posted about a month late! The kids really enjoyed doing this for Gracie. It was all so cute! 🙂 So sweet of our neighbor Keon to come by w/ a gift also! 🙂

It’s All About The Princess

“Kid’s Play…It’s all about the Princess!!” =-)

Our neighbor Keon came over to play w/ the kids. They have such a great time playing together, just using their imaginations. (I’m thinking Sarah came up w/ this idea, but the boys played along! 😉 )

These dudes are serious about protecting the princess!! =-)

Keon looks cool in this photo, huh?! Just look at that focus! 🙂

Ooh, Kerry looks kinda mean, huh?! He’s very serious…and tough, of course!

A-h-h…Sarah, the princess. Yep, she’s lovin’ it!! 🙂

This quiz says…

…”I’m a Thanksgiving!” I guess I can live with that…As long as you don’t call me “Turkey!” ;-) I found this fun little quiz over at Gina’s. When I took it, I got the same results:

You Are Thanksgiving
You are a bit of a homebody who enjoys being in the company of people you love. It doesn’t take a lot to make you happy. You’re enjoying life as it is. You have many blessings in your life, and you are grateful for each one. You believe that life is about what you *do* have. You feel like you have enough of the good stuff. What makes you celebrate: Family, friends, and the changing of the seasons. At holiday get togethers, you do best as: The host of the party On a holiday, you’re the one most likely to: Spend so much energy preparing that it’s a full time job

A Game of Tag, Anyone?

I’ve been sick the past couple of days, but I think I’ll take a break from being pitiful. -D

Jolene (my blogging buddy) tagged me over the weekend. Since I enjoy a quick game of tag, here goes:

____________________________________

Here are six unspectacular things about me:

1. Fall is my favorite season. The crisp air and changing leaves often bring a smile to my face and a special warmth to my heart.

2. My favorite colors are 4 of the primary colors…red, blue, purple, and green. (These are pretty much what I wear.)

3. Even though I suppose I know better, on occasion I’ve been known to say “y’all” and “ain’t.” (Well, I probably say them more than occasionally. I’m o.k. with it though…I am from the south, you know. ;-) )

4. I like to participate in many forms of art…singing, writing, photography, etc. I love the thought of capturing something beautiful to share with others.

5. The sight of a furry, baby animal still brings a smile to my face and makes me say, “A-w-w…” I just can’t seem to help myself!

6. Nowadays, I choose comfort over appearance when it comes to clothing. If it’s not comfortable, I’m probably not going to wear it. (Yep, plain t-shirts, blue jeans, and sneakers…every day but Sunday.)
