Just a little Mish Mash of things from August

I am working on a new painting. Just in the beginning stages with this one. I was in a bit of a funk (life gets in the way sometimes) but the ideas are starting to flow like water. 

I will show you when I am finished. This one is going have a lot of stuff !
I know what I will be doing on my long weekend. 

This was my Birthday month.  When my husband and I got married (25 years in November)
We use to celebrate my birthday month.  And then went to my Birthday week .  We are  now down to a Birthday Weekend. 
I had a wonderful time. I went camping. Yes, I did say camping, In a Tent!!!???
Yikes!!! Don't think I will be doing that again.
Next time it will be a Cabin.

Nelly made me Pork Barbie Q. Ymmmmmm

And my favorite!! Wacky Cake.
Looked just like when my Mom use to make it for me. 
My daughter is the best!! 

A couple days later we had a Birthday Party for Xylie. 
She is just the Cutest Munchkin

A girl of many hats. She is such a girly girl. She is styling. 
(Love this pic of her)

A couple days later we had a Birthday Party for Xylie. 
She is just the Cutest Munchkin
She was a little sad because the people were not at her party yet.
I told her to be patient that they were coming.
And they did. 

No one can forget Xylie's Birthday!

And for the end my month Nelly and I had a festival at Landis Valley Museum. 
It was a very laid back kind of day.
All my girls came out to visit!

Tomorrow is my first High School Football Game of the Season. 
I can't wait!
This is always my favorite time of the year. 

Don't forget to go visit the splendid artists at Paint Party Friday!
