Beautiful outdoor wedding location...

If you're looking for a beautiful outdoor wedding location, look no further! I was so impressed with Mellon's community building in Lawson....they have the gazebo out by the pond and it is breath taking at sunset. I'm posting a picture from a wedding reception I had there, so you can see for yourself. It has a big building there for your reception as would be great for reunions, picnics...I just wanted to let you know about it since I was so impressed.

First softball game....

Well ball season has started...Sammie Jo played her first varsity game last night at Norborne. She DH'd...and then pitched the JV game. She did a great job, her parents were more nervous for her than she was...At least she has one under her belt. I took pictures of course, didn't get a great one of my own kid, that always stinks...but here are a few I thought were pretty cool. The girls did a good job, just didn't get any to work on our batting! Sam had a pretty good hit during the JV game that I'm sure she wishes she'd of had during the varsity game, but...we'll work on that. I've got to get to work, until we chat again~Penny

This is my favorite shot of the day, you could see the dust in our catchers glove, she did a great job!

Got her!!

SAFE...the catcher dropped the ball!!

Up easy!

Got another one!

Nice throw to second, with a backup ready to assist! I'm sure it was a long game for our pitcher, she did a great job too...the pitcher and catcher work really good together.

Too quiet...

Well I guess me being alone will hopefully get me blogging more...I don't have anyone tattling or asking for anything, or hugging me good morning, the girls would normally just be getting up...and since they got on the bus, I've been finishing up a wedding and working on this little ones pictures, so I thought I would show you one of my favorites. I took his Mommy and Daddy's wedding pictures, it was so nice to be a part of the next chapter of their love story! He was so cute, and smelled so good...missing Mary, working on baby pictures...might not be a good thing for me~ Chris may have to go back to get un-fixed!

See I can write stuff like that, because he never looks at!

Crazy couple of weeks...

Hello Everyone! Well today was the first day of school for my girls...I'm all alone, except for the dog....she keeps looking at me like "where are they??" I'm probably imagining that emotion, she's probably enjoying it being so quiet....Not me :(

I wanted to show you a few pictures from the State Fair. My girls show sheep and chickens the first week of the fair, so we were there, or running back and forth all week. We stayed in a camper for a few nights (thanks to Phil and Michelle!) The girls would have stayed at the campground the whole time. For some reason it was so much more fun to ride bikes there than at home, could have been the cute boys??

This is Shelby with one of the show lambs...

Sammie Jo out in the show ring...

Sidney with one of her market lambs...yes, that's what market means. We only brought two back home with us. The others got to ride off to lamb heaven. That's a hard "farm life" lesson.

This is Mary making her lunch last night for her first day of kindergarten!

All four girls, waiting for the bus...

Mary's first day of Kindergarten!

Aren't they adorable!!

Look! Aren't they adorable! I sure am getting alot of good out of my chair....Keep your eyes open for a good ol' chair for me! I looked this weekend, but no luck....We took my nephew's one year pictures today...and of course, had to take some of my niece too...don't want them to think I play favorites! Anyways, I was happy with this one, its hard to get them to sit still very long, Aunt Penny has too many distractions...dogs, cats, sheep, cows, horses....cousins to play with! I don't know to many kids that would want to sit still for pictures when they could be playing...we didn't get to play to long, so in a short visit, I think we did pretty good! Well, its after midnight, so I'm gonna head to bed. I'm thinking I'm going to try to start my day when Chris leaves, anyone want to take bets it doesn't happen?? Well, its just a plan! Good night :)
