So... I sing. Didya all know that?? Probably, since 99.9% of the people who read this blog are my family and friends. Anywho... I was in a Christmas production this past weekend and I was given the privilege of singing two songs, one a duet and the other a trio. My fabulous dad watched the girls Saturday night so Yeadon could come to the performance. He was the one who took the video. It's not the greatest (not because of my husband, but just because...), but at least you can hear some of the song I sang with one of our local celebrities, Mike Alger, who is a local weatherman and our music leader at our church. After the performance on Saturday, my amazing husband took me out on a date! First one in a really long time... it was great! It was a great weekend, but I'm glad it's over (for some reason the songs I sang really stressed me out... oh well!) So here's one of my songs... Hope you like it!

So, did you notice that I didn't post any Halloween pictures of the girlies? Well... Our church didn't have a Harvest Party this year and Yeadon was working, so I decided to dress the girls up and take them to some relatives' homes... Didn't quite work out that way (of course!) I'm not big into the Halloween scene. I just dont' like it, period. I struggled with allowing the girls to dress up, even if the costumes were not scary. But, I caved... My friend Nikki made this ADORABLE cow costume for her daughter a couple of years ago, so I asked if I could borrow it. Then I went to Savers and found a very cute cowboy dress and checkered shirt... Walmart and found the boots... Borrowed Daddy's cowboy hat... And I had an incredibly cute cow and cow-girl! However... when we arrived at Papa's house, no decent pictures could be had! We didn't make it to Yeadon's Dad's house (he was working), so the girls got to wear their "costumes" as we ran errands.... Still, no cute pictures! Suffice it to say, today I decided to get them dressed up again and here's what we got... Kayden is just too cute for words... but Kaelin... my little imp... Didn't want to cooperate, so you just get bits and pieces of what she wore.. Such is our life!
