Sunday Stuff

Hello friends and happy Sunday! This past week has been really busy so I haven't much time to enter any challenges or do many crafty projects. I started working 3 days at the preschool last week which I am enjoying so much. My oldest, Caleb went on a weekend church retreat so we just had one child to entertain this weekend. The fair has been in town and we only had a few days before it ended so we decided to take our youngest yesterday morning. It's been a few years since I've been and I figured he would enjoy all the sounds, rides and just being outside. We learned a few things about our sweet 3 year old.

1. Taking him to a petting zoo makes for a very happy little boy.

He was so excited when he saw the cows that he just started yelling "cows so MOO" and he basically tried to climb in the pen with them. It was definitely a cute moment.

I had to keep reminding him to be sweet as when he would reach in to pet them he would kind of swat them. I didn't think that would be a good idea as they were eating and we didn't need to leave there with one less finger.

You could buy food for the sheep and goats. I didn't think he would like them eating out of his hand but as usual he completely surprised me. He thought it was hilarious. One of the larger sheep did not think we were feeding him fast enough so he kept nudging us to go faster. It was a fun experience with him.

2. He loves to ride ponies. The one thing his dad and I did not think he would do!

He jumped right up there and gave us the biggest smile. I didn't have the camera ready yet so when it was time to actually look at me and smile he had other things to do. Oh well, you can't get every smile.

3. Rides are not his favorite but he did a few.

He rode the choo choo train but only if one of us were in his eye sight. He did not like looking up and not see one of us. Once the ride was over he was DONE!

We were able to get him on the ride that went over the whole fair. He was not happy when we first got on so thankfully he had a water gun and I just happened to have a water bottle. Squirting other people with water as we rode along made the ride a little easier and I no longer had the fear of him falling from the sky.

After that ride was over, we were all ready to head home. We had to take pictures by the hay bells and pumpkins before we left. Thankfully I got a few smiles here.

I love this time of year. Everything about it makes me feel complete. Being with family is so important.

I was able to participate in a challenge that just happens to end this evening so I'm glad that I got in before the cut off. The challenge is for Mojo Monday and the sketch looks like this

I hate that I wasn't able to really put a whole lot of extra thought into this sketch but it really is a good one. I just did what it looked like without thinking too much out of the box. Here is what I came up with

It turned out to be a simple but pretty card. I know exactly who I'm going to send it to and I know she will love it. Thanks for looking today. If you have any questions about the products used, just ask! You can also visit my online shop at My Stampin World to see all of the available products.
