Here is Kristen. Her and Hannah were goofing off for the camera after we got home from competition this afternoon....Her squad won 2nd place! Here is Hannah. She cheers in a younger age group than Kristen. Her squad won 1st place!
I love these girls! We are so proud of them and the rest of our Cowboy cheerleaders!

Oh and I think they really do love each other too!


One last note....in our league there are 3 age groups. The youngest Cowboy cheerleaders also brought home 1st place! Way to go girls!

Morning Glory!

I do love these sweet flowers! I was thrilled to see them popping up on the old chain link fence between our yard and the ball field. I was even more thrilled when I went outside around noon to see that they were still open and waiting on me to take their pictue!

A Fall Art Project and a Surgery Update

So before we dive into this fun art project I wanted to update ya'll on the boy's eye surgery. After being pushed back twice to later in the day last wednesday, we finally got the show on the road around 3 pm. Talk about a long day for a four year old who hasn't eaten anything! Anyhoodle, everything went great. He seems to be a bit shy about folks looking at his eyes right now so I am not going to post any photos post op. We go first thing tomorrow for his post op appointment!
Now onto our fall project! The kids and I were walking around outside yesterday checking out all of the leaves when we decided it would be fun to do a canvas of leaf stamping! We gathered our leaves and our paints (we used acrylic paints...because thats what we had). First we painted our canvas a warm caramel color. After it dried the kids painted the under sides of the leaves with paint in a few fall colors and then stamped them onto the canvas and VOILA! After it dried I sprayed it with a couple coats of sealer and now it is ready to hang!
