(can you see R helping her hold up 12 fingers?) :-D
My Brooke Anne turned 12 on Halloween. 12! The day she was born Sam brought my two older girls, dressed in bumble bee costumes, to meet their newest sister. She was such a beautiful baby. Very happy!
Brooke is the beloved in our family. Her sisters totally agree, and would not mind me saying. My other three girls have strong personalities, Brooke has a mild personality. She is very selfless, and kind. Srsly, she is one of the nicest people that I have ever known. It makes us a lot more protective of her, if you know what I mean. I am so blessed to have her!
Last weekend my sister invited me to 4 day get away in beautiful Eureka Springs. She and her husband had made plans to attend "Mito" Mini's in the Ozarks. He was unable to go because of work conflicts, so she let me tag along with her!
It is a Mini Cooper car rally where hundreds of Mini owners from all over USA come together to basically...play!
My sister's cute Mini:
I have several favorite things I enjoyed about the get away.
1) Getting away. Nuff said.
2) Spending time with my sister. I love her so much, and am very grateful to have her.
3) The Mini drive through the Ozarks, stopping in Jasper for lunch.
4) Making friends with some good people. That surprised me. I just thought it would be me and my sister, who knew I'd meet such likable people.
5) Eating lunch at Mud street Cafe. So Stinkin' good!
6) Fall foliage was just beginning to pop out and it was beautiful!!
About a year ago our Young Woman at church devised a plan to become Disn8ey Princesses for Halloween. They certainly pulled it off!
They even won Best Group Costume! Several women in our ward spent hours sewing and helping these girls out. On Saturday most of the girls were able to meet at the church and get ready together. It was a wonderful good experience, glad we were able to be a part of it!!
Sleeping beauty, Ariel (while on land), Sophie, Mother Gothel, Rapunzel, Snow White, Marada (Brave), Belle and dear Sierra being her own kind of beautiful :)
Cinderella and Pocahontas caught up with the rest of the Princesses at the dance :)
