And Yet Some More Pictures

It appears that all I am good for these days are pictures.

But what lovely pictures they are!

On Labor Day we went with Grandpa and a cousin to a little carnival that was a couple of towns away, and we dropped a small fortune on some rickety looking rides. After wandering through the various stalls of other ways to spend $$ we decided to just go home and make some popcorn and snow cones and get some homemade face painting done. Between the four girls getting butterflies on their faces and treats for their tummies, I am betting we saved more than forty bucks. It was do that or hit the ATM, and I feel comfortable with our choice.

Oh... and treats for the adults! Make that around $50 to $60!

She looks pretty comfortable with our choice too.

To say nothing of being downright, stinkin' CUTE!

The cousin looked great too.... but I don't know how her mama feels about her pic being on the internets... so ya get the Bird! Ta DA!

Last but not least, Tuesday was Pearls first day of her first year of Preschool. She picked this outfit at the store herself, and I think she did great. I think this is the first year I have taken pictures of the kids "first day of school" outfits... what a great way to mark the passage of time. Don't know why it took me so long to start doing it too. Am shmoe.

Love the face painting! I think this year I'll paint faces at home before we head out to our local apple festival. It will probably save me some money and we won't have to wait in the huge line to get it done.

You are the rockingest face painter ever. Breanne's friends STILL remember pokemon on their faces.

Seriously, I bet you could make a nice chunk of change renting your talents out for kids parties - I'd hire you!!

What Meredith said — you are SO MUCH BETTER than these face-painter ladies at our local fairs.
And Pearl looks adorable in her school outfit. Great colors!

Your face painting is lovely, as usual. Man, your girls have gorgeous, thick, beautiful hair. Pearly in preschool. Hurray! (and I love the outfit!)

Dude nice face painting. My kids know better than to trust me with paint and their faces.
