Labor Day weekend.....

Man am I ready for the weekend. The Kansas State Fair starts this weekend and I am ready to sink my teeth into a Pronto Pup! If you've never had one, it's a corn dog on steroids and it's gooood.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend last week. We had a busy one.
Here's how it went down.....
Saturday, came home ate lunch, get all gussied up, iron clothes, send Maddie to her Grammy's, attend a wedding in the evening. Watched a huge thunder cloud creep up on the outdoor wedding ceremony. With just a couple minutes to spare, they finished the vows and made it to the reception area, and it didn't take long before the wind was blowing and it was pouring rain. Then the rain cleared away and it was gorgeous outside. The wedding was beautiful. It was at Walter's Farm in Burns, Ks. It's also known as Walter's Pumpkin Patch. It is really beautiful when they have all the pumpkins out. We will be making a trip there sometime next month.
Sunday.....Clean house, laundry, and got ready for a special little girl's 1st Birthday party. Our good friends Dana and Kate had a wonderful party for their sweet, beautiful daughter Emery. Check out some cute pictures of the birthday girl on the KDKG blog!
Monday (Labor Day).....I cleaned the living room up, cleaned the refrigerator, cleaned out our closet and after all of that I was done.

 The happy couple. Congratulations Matt and Nicole!

The birthday girl wasn't too happy in the begining...

 Kate had lots of extra helpers with opening the gifts.

Hope everyone has a good weekend ahead!

Getting caught up......

I'm so behind that I think if I stand still I can run circles around myself.
I made a list of things to get done tonight before I hit my pillow, and making a blog post was one of them. So here it is.
First day of Kindergarten. (which was like 2 and 1/2 weeks ago, but hey better late then never)
Maddison loves school, so far. She will ask, "Do I have school tomorrow?" "Yes sweetie you do."
Then she might moan or say "aahhh man."
We are ready to head to school.

 Here she is with her teacher Ms. Haney.
 Every morning they meet in the gym and line up with their classroom. On the first day, the look on my child's face was priceless. She was in shock by all the kids that were there.
I don't know about the rest of ya'll, but I am ready for this summer to be OVER!
We have had one crazy year with our summer weather. We even managed to break a summer heat wave record. This summer we had 51 days that were above 100 degrees. It was miserable.
Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Labor Day weekend!
