Lookin' Good at Hog Days

Last week was crazy busy since it was one day short...nice, but waaaaaay busy! I decided my poor neglected blog needed a couple of my favorite shots from the big Hog Days celebration. Olivia truly enjoyed the parade experience--she ate plenty of assorted candy, a couple of suckers, a freeze pop and who knows what else. She also made out big with the necklaces as all her boy cousins were happy to share. At one point she was also wearing 3 rings and of course her darling pink sunglasses. She wore the sunglasses until the parade was over when she shoved them up on top of her head--super cute!
We all enjoyed a day of beautiful weather, delicious pork chops, extremely sweet pink pig cookies, birthday cake, a little football and lots of family fun.

Hog Days!

Heading off to the Hog Days (yes, I said Hog Days) celebration in my hometown of Kewanee, IL (the Hog Capitol of the World) with my pink pig cookies. Not everyone has such a claim to fame.

All I Have Time to Say is AMEN!

What a Difference a Day Makes!!!

We took this shot of the front of the house yesterday, knowing that the big trees were coming down on Wednesday. We left early this morning for the convocation at Lincoln Christian University and came home to a HUGE surprise...

We came around the corner to see this...

The crew had today free and decided to get started early. Quite a shock, but we have been waiting to be able to afford to get this done for a loooooong time.

So there really was a house behind those trees...
