So, my family came down to celebrate Alexis' birthday and boy did we celebrate! She wanted to go to Down Home on the Farm. Chris and I were slightly nervous, b/c it's quite expensive with 15 people, but we knew it would work out!
The day began with going to Christmas in October at Church. Christina and I got several quick hours to ourselves, which was SO FUN...and needed! Mom and Dad took all 5 kids while Chris and Ethan delivered Scout bags for food drive in the morning. We all met up at Main Street in Broadway for the old car show and fall festival. This was an event not to miss. Chris left to study and would meet up with us later in the evening at the Farm. Everyone else ate hot dogs and doughnuts so rich even I could only eat 1 (now that's really saying something). They were GREAT! All the activities were free for kids. There were several boucy houses, 4-H animals to hold, old cars to love (particularly Ethan and my dad) and lots of crafts and music playing. We spent several hours there.

So, our Alexis turned 7 on the 17th of this month! I can't believe it! She's such a wonderful, smart, funny, loving, gentle, peacemaking sweetheart of a girl! WE LOVE YOU ALEXIS. She wanted a book, a drawing pad, beads to make necklaces, and new colored pencils. This was not too much to ask, I thought....so she got what she requested!!! Happy Birthday to our sweet girl!
She even lost her tooth!!!! What a day! The tooth fairy came and gave her an extra $1.00. She was thrilled!!!
Next on the list...Down Home on the Farm for Hunter; his classes 2nd fieldtrip! This was sure a great time! ;) It was fun to watch Hunter interact with all his little friends from school. Here are a few highlights from the event!
What's new over here....Well, let's see. Hunter loves to paint and draw. He's going to be Thomas the train for Halloween, so I got a template and we drew it on a box. Not finished yet, but he's going to be pretty cute, I think! Most Friday evenings, I watch 3 extra kids for exchange during the week (Hunter- babysitting) while I work. This makes for a little crazy, but ALOT of fun on our Fridays. The kids enjoy playing football, riding bikes around the neighborhood, eatting popcorn and sometimes having a little movie night. I enjoy having them here. With all the other 3, this particular night, we had 6 extra kids, on top of my 6. The boys were enjoying some football in the back yard. The girls were all out front playing jumprope, riding bikes and making a beautiful picture with sidewalk chalk! Fun, Fun, Fun, that's for sure, and I wouldn't have it any other way! ;)
