Happy Girl!

Do you see that blanket?  That's Mari's new weighted blanket from Handmade Weighted Blankets
It's beautiful, soft, and LOVED.
Do you see that smile?  That is my growing-too-fast-just-like-her-brother-and-sister, sweet, sassy, littlest girl with a smile that lights up a room
{even at night when she should be settling down for bedtime soon!}

What is Art: A Great Way To Preserve Memories

My first feature of the year in my What Makes It Art? series comes courtesy of my middlest...
She carefully collected an absurd amount of sea glass on our family vacation to Memaw and Papaw's condo in St. Croix at Christmas time.  Then she came home and created this:

Complete with a photo of the family building sandcastles on that same trip.

THIS, my friends, is Art.

Another Successful Fair

While many of our friends and family members are snuggling in with hot cocoa thinking nothing of the 4-H Fair Festivities, we are at down here going strong. 

The Bigs each had another great year at the fair. 
They each entered 7 or 8 projects. {Look at all that blue!} And they combined forces for a healthy living presentation on the last Saturday of the Fair.

Now that the Fair is over the focus will be on more community service projects, leadership training, and completing their annual record books.

Then, as all of our friends and family members up north are gearing up for their Fair season we will be turning our thoughts toward next year! We *heart* 4-H!
