Baton Rouge Bound!

OH MY GOSH! I'm sooooo excited. Tomorrow morning I am leaving to go down to ole Tiger Town to a woman's conference at Healing Place Church. Last year was the 1st they had and it was a TON of fun. They had everything thought out so perfectly. Most of all, it really was a time to experience God and to receive lots and lots of encouragement. There were several woman that gave there testimony, and boy.....let me tell ya, sometimes we think we got it bad. They REALLY put some things into perspective. Sometimes, I don't think that enough of us ladies support and help each other grow enough, ya know?! God gave us woman special abilities and strengths and think we just take them for granted. I'm really excited to know what I will get out of this one this year. Last year, I was pregnant and I was just completely a mess mentally. (Those hormones will do it to ya!) Can I get a AMENNN!?? Anywho, I'm really excited ( already said that I know) and ready to go. I hope you guys/gals have a great weekend. Get out and enjoy the weather! Pray for save travels! God Bless!

This my friend, is what we call redneck racin' around these parts! Would you look at this car? The things that we do for fun! Sunday afternoon we spent the evening at my dad's house waaaaaay out in the sticks. I grew up in MerRouge La, for most of my wee days. I do love the country, mostly because it's quiet, but with kids, I have to be no more than 5 mins from a store! This is my dad and his most famous dirt track race car. He really enjoys tootlin' around with the thing. When I was young, he didn't have one, but we always were at the dirt track on Friday or Saturday nights. He had a few friends that also were into it so it was neat to watch them. It was just the thing to do then in Strop City.

NOW...look closely at these photo's. Do you see that big ole ear to ear grin? Ethan had a FIT in that thing. Dad has a fairly large yard, so he would start at one end of it and GAS it......( this scared the poo out of me) but as for Ethan....he LOVED IT! He would yell "FASTER FASTER...DO IT AGAIN Pepaw!"

This is how fast they were going! The picture was even blurry!

Chloe Grace didn't know what in the world was going one. She just sat in her stroller taking it all in. Notice the passi...we don't leave home with out it!

I love these fall days. It's a good time to just get out and enjoy what God has given us. I encourage all of you to get out and do something outdoorsy. It won't be long and it will be too cold to get outside at all. WAIT a minute...what am I saying? We are usually wearing shorts at Christmas time. Speaking of which.....have you started making your list for Santa?
