|Front of house, and little side porch. Pallet, anyone? I've seen only 547,000 things to do with those things on Pinterest. ; )|

Other things in our world exist!!Last week, we had a Last Dinner with Ashley, a fellow mom of a child with Type I Diabetes. We will really miss her! She's originally from Kansas, and she and her family are moving back there now.
We tried to think of something cute to give her, and we decided on a little Arkansas with a heart over our area. : ) I got an Arkansas shape off the Silhouette website, and a heart, and just cut and pasted them into a frame we picked up at Hobby Lobby. Leigh totally picked the colors!
|We *love* Arkansas...just a little bit!!|
|Our going away dinner for Ashley : )|
..We've totally been getting used to the house here, and we've met a couple neighbors. We scared a bunch off two nights ago when we blasted the street with noisy stuff. It was THE most fun watching the kids work together to light their 'works, and not get hurt. No arguing..it was good stuff.
|They were really concentrating. Plus they had me screaming to "Get Back!"|
|And here they are, "staying back"!|
Then last night, we had mom and dad over to eat hamburgers (and shoo flies off) (and eat their cake!) and then went to see a church firework presentation. We haven't done this in a year, so we forgot to bring important things. Like a blanket, chairs, bug spray, snacks, water. We'll get better. I should write myself a reminder for next year! We did lose a shoe, found it, caught fireflies, rubbed them on their wrists, and the boys climbed trees. It was great. The finale was the fireworks! And my daughter tickled pink. ; )
|She had so much fun! She actually cuddled up to me, cold. The temperatures have really dropped this week (hooray!), and it was a little chilly. Ethan was in my lap too!|
