Fall Happenings

We've been so busy with fun Fall activities and eager to share some pics.

First, our little town of Keller has so many family activities all the time. In fact, ranked Keller, Texas as the 7th Best City to live in. We love it here! Last week was there 23rd annual Harvest Stew Festival. Just bring a canned food for your admission and everything is free. We had stew, popcorn, played games, went on hayrides, and more.

Here are the kids on the hayride. There were 2 hayrides and we rode on both of them.

Each hayride had a singer. This guy was funny. The very first song he sang was "I Want To Be A Billionaire". He didn't sing the entire song, but it just happens to be one of our favorites!

The kids got to decorate their own sugar cookies. Of course, I made one too.

Finally, at the end of the night, the kids waited so patiently in line for the bounce house. It was almost their turn and it started to rain!!! You heard people shouting "It's raining!" and everyone fled for their cars. It was just like out of a movie.
Our church had their 3rd annual Tailgate Party after church on Sunday. The church has a lot of property next to the building that gets used for church functions. Families, care groups, and friends join together to have a tailgate. I joined with our Care Group and made desserts: rice krispie treats and brownie pops.

These brownie pops were a huge hit and were gone right away!

Here is our wonderful Care Group.
I brought one of the kids picnic tables. They played with play dough until it was time to eat. We had so much food!

The craft store Michael's always has free activities for the kids. This week the kids got to decorate foam visors. All the supplies were provided and it was free!

Preston's creation.

Finally, the Mother's Day Out program where I teach music and Preston attends had their Fall Festival yesterday. I loved seeing all the kids in their costumes. They were adorable. I led the kids in songs on the hayride, there was a petting zoo, games, pumpkin patch (provided by Mr. Kroger), and pizza for lunch. It was a fun, but tiring day!

Here is Preston in his Woody costume running from the chicken.

Preston is posing at school. I am friends with a lady on Facebook that grew up with Craig in Carlsbad, NM. I posted on Facebook that I wanted to borrow some boots for Preston's costume. She responded and said her son outgrew his boots and she wanted to give them to Preston. What a blessing!

Preston is walking in the costume parade. There were 2 other Woody's in his class.

Handsome boy!
