CL at it's Best!

Here are some pictures of some different items and displays I liked from the fair.
Today alone they sold 6,000 tickets!
You could defiantly tell there were more people, because you could hardly walk around.

Country Living Day one!

Today I decided that since I wrote so much yesterday, and had no pictures to go along with it, this would be a mostly picture entry.So for those of you who wish they could be here at the Country Living Fair, here is your free ticket, just sit back and enjoy!

Here is the front of our booth, for more pictures of Dad's booth check out his blog

This "flag" is our attempt at a awning to block some of the sun

Here Grandpa is taking a break outside the booth, he was a great salesman!

From beyond this point are pictures of the crowd and
some of the booths that I really enjoy

Isn't that such a cute lemonade stand!

I hope you enjoyed these snapshots of the show.
I know they are not as good as Noah's pictures,
Thank you Grandma for letting me borrow your camera!

Ohio Here we come!

Hi everyone I thought I would give you an update on our trip to Columbus,Ohio for the
Country Living Show that we will be exhibiting at this weekend.
We started off at 7:30 p.m. last night with Dad at the wheel. He drove for 2 hours with not much trouble then I took over for hour and a half.I got tired real quick once,so Grandpa was very gracious and took over the driving from me, and he actually drove the rest of the way which (as he keeps reminding us!) was three and half hours!In all though it was a very uneventful trip, which was very nice.We got into our hotel (a price line deal) at 2:00 a.m. and crashed until 8:00 this morning. The hot breakfast (that comes with our room) was good,my favorite our the fresh waffles that you can make! We ended up at the show grounds around 9:30. The line to get into the place was a little long but they kept it moving pretty well.We are in the same spot as last year, right next to some very nice people and across the way from so friends of ours from the Wholesale shows we do. Grandpa and I left at about 1:00 to get lunch back at the hotel room ( we brought our lunch food to save money). We enjoyed the cool air conditioning, since it was 90 outside almost all day long. When we got back at 2:45, Dad had put out some of his artwork and started to get the booth organized. Well we finally finished at 6:00 p.m. and headed to Bob Evans for supper, you have to go at leased once while you are in Ohio!
It certainly became obvious that we were very thirsty, since I drank two glasses of soda and Dad had three!After a delicious supper of : Chicken potpie,Grilled Chicken, and Chicken fried Steak we headed back to Home base to finish some of Dad's polka dot and chalkboard pumpkins for tomorrow. Well I better head to bed now that it is 11:30, especially since I have to get up at 6:00 a.m. Goodnight!!

P.S Pictures our coming soon.

Happy Birthday TY!

Today is Ty's 7th birthday.He got up early this morning for our family tradition, going to
Shady Maple for a free breakfast! He was soo excited he could hardly go to sleep last night.
He also felt special since we brought cupcakes in to school for his whole 1st and 2nd Grade class.
Tonight Our very good friends Wayne and Rosella are coming over for a special supper that Ty picked out ( another family tradition).Meatloaf,Mashed potatoes,and Green Beans.They will also have some Cupcakes for dessert instead of a cake, but we do have the BIG 7 candle to go on Ty's cupcake.Hopefully tomorrow I can out some pictures on of his party and presents, but for now I have some pictures of the cupcakes I made for him. Enjoy!

Here are two cards that came in the mail for him and ready to be opened!

I am still taking votes on the picture, but if you could leave them as a comment on the blog that would be make it more fun, so everyone can read the different views and opinions.
Pictures of the family at the Church camp out will be coming soon, so there will not be a blog entry till probable Monday, unless there is WiFi at the camp we are going to, which would be great!
Have a great weekend!

A New Little Artist!

Hi everyone sorry it has been soo long since I have blogged.
Between the boys starting school and Mom and I both having Strep throat, it has been a little hectic around here.
Now that Abby is the only one at home, Mom decided to do Kindergarten with her.
One of her favorite things to do is paint.I think that originated out in Dad's workshop!
Well today Abby made a card to send to Grammy and Grandpa Latorella.
She was very excited and decided to make a happy house card for them.
I drew the basic house and she did the painting.I was very impressed with the results,and she was very proud!

These are her new paints for school

Little fingers hard at work

She even remembered to clean up afterword

Here is her finished work

P.S. Grammy and Grandpa Latorella, watch your mailbox for your card!
