A nutshell

There is NO WAY to ever catch up with my blogging, so here is just a little overview of a few fun things we have done in the past 3 weeks that I haven't taken the time to blog about.

 We went to the Wayne County Fair and had a marvelous time, including the Demolition Derby.  Sitting with my cousins, my sister, my brother, and their spouses and kids was the best part of all!

The kids thought is was a great time - watching cars crash into eachother!
School started and the girls went to school, leaving Emmitt and Kenna home with me.  They love school, and the little ones and I are having a great time as well.

 We had a back to school marshmallow roast with a few neighbors and friends.  We need to have a few more now that the weather has cooled off this fall.

 Kenna started smiling - which melts my heart!

 Matt and Emmitt made some much needed shelves in our garage - it was a wonderful day spending it with Matt at home.  

 Matt cut  his head open and had me staple it closed.  It was NOT while making my shelves, but while preg-checking cows.  OUCH!

 We had our annual and wonderful Chappell Family Reunion over Labor Day Weekend.  I had a great time visiting with family, the kids had a blast and got incredibly dirty, and it was great as usual.

 Matt told me he is in love with me.
But, he tells me that all the time, so it wasn't new news.
(after seeing this picture, he also did mention that I have a pointy nose and chin - like a witch!)

 Emmitt is obsessed with super heros, mainly Spiderman. 
We do a lot of puzzles while the girls are in school and have a fantastic time together.
 We have been enjoying the wonderful cooler weather of September and enjoying evenings together, after homework is finished of course!

 I have been getting ready for our big civil war weekend coming up at the end of the month.  These are little writing tables I am making for the kids to mess around with while writing with quill pens and ink.

Matt went to Iowa for some continuing education courses, and was able to visit and sight-see with his parents who are in Missouri for just a few more weeks of their 18 month mission.  While he was there, I went to a cousin party and talked family history and genealogy and had a great evening.  

That is us in a nutshell.  We are truly enjoying September so far and hope for many more memorable times this month. We need to start getting in the firewood for the winter, and that is always a fun family activity that I look forward to doing.  The leaves are changing in our valley and it gorgeous! What a beautiful sight!
