More pictures

Kinsey is enjoying Brownies this year. I'm a co-leader for our group and we are having a lot of fun. We have 4 different age groups so it is an interesting mix of girls. Here are a few pictures from activities we have done so far this school year.

Labor Day parade in Carrizozo, NM. There were several troops there but this is some of our girls. Silly Kinsey is in the middle with her hat over her eyes.

Last month, the Holloman Air Force Base Girl Scouts invited area troops to come bowl on their base. We had a lot of fun and got to meet a lot of other Girl Scouts.

Today we carved pumpkins, decorated small pumpkins and had a snack of caramel and apples. It was a wonderful fall day!

Next weekend we have a day camp at a local park. We are hoping for good sunny weather. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun for the girls.

Kinsey and her snack

I've been working with Kinsey on making her own snacks and breakfast. She is able to use the toaster now and learning to use a small knife. One day she wanted fruit with Cool Whip so I told her she had to cut up the fruit.

I helped her get out a pairing knife. We practiced keeping her finger back and slicing strawberries and banana. She also washed some grapes and added those.

Kinsey was very proud of herself when she was done.

Sharing a few pictures

Kinsey and Neal on a tractor mowing behind the house. Kinsey loved driving the tractor.

We've gone to a few football games this year. I just loved this banner from one of the games. Very cute! Sadly the Tigers aren't doing that great this year due to a few injures. We enjoy going to the games and seeing friends.

Neal and I went to see Trace Adkins on August 8, 2008 (08-08-08) and really enjoyed the concert. I entered a drawing from his fan club to go back stage for a meet and greet. I was able to get an autograph and quick picture. Wow! Trace is tall and muscular but very quite.

Look I changed the back ground!

I've been seeing these cute back grounds on other blogs and wondered how to do it myself. I finally clicked on a link and it's easy peasy. Aren't they cute?

I guess this is going to count as my October blog because I sure haven't been keeping up with blogging. November is just around the corner and that means a blog a day. I have a ton of pictures I need to post from all the things we've been doing. I'll try to get on that soon. Just wanted to say hi and that we are still around!
