They are growing so fast! They keep getting prettier and smarter and so darn grown up. Katie and Paige (my sister's daughter) have a special cousin bond that I just know Katie is on her way to having with Emma (Chris's brother's daughter). I love seeing the dynamic of Katie being the younger of the pair AND the older of the pair. (Would you believe I don't have a SINGLE recent/good picture of that duo? They are so difficult to get to stop and smile at the same time.)
Recently we got to visit Paige at the county 4-H fair. She is a member of the 4-H club and loves to learn about horses. She got to decorate a horse stall and ran ribbons to the horse ring for the winners of riding competitions for an entire day. We took this picture just minutes before my nephew Alex announced to Katie, in front of the pigs, that we eat them and they make yummy bacon and sausage from them. Ironically, that was just after this post - so Katie wasn't too shocked, but I can say that I got some horrified looks from the mothers of young children. Oh, and then the fun continued and Katie walked off and we had to have a "lost child" announcement over the loud speaker. And oh heck...this was supposed to be just a Two for Tuesday post, but while I'm at it here's some pics of the boys chowing down at the 4-H fair. We had nephews Alex, Teddy, and Henry with us for the weekend for a sleepover and to do some fun outtings for their belated birthday gifts. Henry ate 1 and a HALF barbeque chicken dinners and loved every bit. Alex gobbled his sandwich and Teddy made short work of his burger and then helped out by feeding Timmy.
