Small Town Life

We had our annual Dove Festival last weekend.

It started with a Character Dress Up day and the Little Cheerleaders performing at the pep rally and football game.

Emma was a blue bird and Landon was a Scout.

Emma did so good performing at the pep rally and football game! She also got a pic with her cheerleader buddy.

It was so much fun! Then Saturday kicked off the festival. We had our Cub Scouts in the parade. 

The kids got to play at the festival and landon got to see a friend of his who has been in China with his parents doing missionary work.

Then Sunday was capped off with a Southern gospel band that sang at our church. They were awesome!

Had so much fun but I need a weekend to recoup from my weekend!!

Sunday Thoughts...

1) I like it MUCH better if I have nothing to do but church on Sunday. That way I get in my weekly nap and some football. 

2) seeing your husband happy to fulfill a dream, makes you happier than anything.

 3) Realizing you have to discipline yourself to keeping with a budget, is both humbling and freeing. Because knowledge is power to change your circumstances.

4) A surprise divine salted caramel truffle from your co-worker, will make your week.

5) Cowboys win!!!! Whoo-HOO!!!!

6) Sometimes doing dishes is overrated. Sleep is much better. 

7.  Fall colors for manicures make me happy, happy,  happy.

8) I will be one of those moms that will ALWAYS check on their kiddos when they sleep. 

9) Emma still wants me to sing the song "Baby Mine" before she goes to bed. It made me cry tonight to think one day she won't.

10) Half day Friday's to take kiddos to eye dr and do some shopping, is something to look forward to.

Gratitude will melt away fears you have. Turn to God and thank him for your blessings.
