His Room and some art :)

My husband loves to fish and camp, and plans on taking JoMo on many trips to Colorado, so we decided to make our little guys room a fishing/camping theme. started out that way but ended up an Ethiopian/camping/fishing theme :)
We bought this map of Ethiopia while we were there, and had it framed and hung in his room.

BEAUTIFUL blanket my mother-in-law's best friend, Lynn, crocheted for him! LOVE very special.

Sweetest picture ever of Josiah with his favorite Nanny.

My friend, Christine, found this cute little guy at a garage sale. So cute!

I was putting something away the other day and I found this in his bed :) I think
Alyssa and Aubrey are ready for their brother to be home :) friend Scarlette, found this cute doll at IKEA :)

My friend, Kelly, did an awesome job painting this verse over his bed.

Some of the art we bought while in Ethiopia...

Ethiopian cross

Love this one too...this was Aaron's pick. The artist combined real pictures with his painting. The market setting drew his eye to it.

Got this painting at Makush, and fell in love with it!

A day at the fair!

In late September every year in Texas, one of greatest places to visit opens up for business....The Great State Fair of Texas!
We visit every year, and it seems like the day isn't long enough to fit in all the fun the fair has to offer! We love looking at the crazy exhibits, visiting the animals, riding all the fun rides, and eating all the crazy food! SO MUCH FUN!

We can't leave without a caramel apple!

One of our favorite stops is the Go Texan building! It is full of products from local farmers you can purchase, sample and some educational facts about Texas Farmers. Plus there were some pretty cute tap dancers in this building as well ;)

Can you believe this is a butter sculpture??? Paula Deen would love this! HA!

Oh the Fun!

Even now as an adult I am sad and disappointed when it's time to leave the fair. I love everything about it! It reminds me of my childhood and now having my own children, I absolutely LOVE watching them having a blast and making memories with them! One big tradition is the famous Fletchers Corny Dog! We can't leave without having one or two or three ;)! Goodbye for this year Big Tex! We will see you next year!
