I left off at Sophie's Birthday. That was followed by a trip to Rock Ranch for the celebration, where everything except food is included in the price of admission, lovely! We even saw the owner, Truett Cathy and his wife riding around on a golf cart checking out the festivities. Then his daughter was the speaker at our Women's Christmas dinner. If you catch me enjoying fast food, it'll most likely be Chick-fil-a.
It started out COLD but sunny.
Josiah would have gladly been Caleb's passenger till sundown.
Jumping was a favorite for the big kids.
The monster truck was big and bad.
Amelia, always the sensory kid looking for deep input, loved the heavy mallets to smash pumpkins.
She didn't so much like falling into the pumpkin guts shortly after this pic. I was impressed with the employee who wiped Amelia's hands off onto his overalls, nice improvising.
Did you notice Amelia's colorful shoes? These were perhaps the best consignment purchase ever ($7, new and name brand)! She loves them. They have since been knocked off their pedestal for ones that feel good to her. More about that soon. Here's a close up of the bright ones.
Yes, she likes her last year's pants with the hem let out and won't keep even these shoes tied/on.
That's our quirky girl!
Caleb's in the cow train but look closely for Josiah too, the escape artist. He was a "free spirit" that day!
Finally here are two of my favorite shots from the year, capturing the girls we know and love.
Amelia (8 1/2 yrs old)
Sophie (9 yrs old)
I hope your New Year is off to a beautiful start.
