Making my home sing monday

Making your home sing Mondays

Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday meme!hosted here by moms' the word. Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one). My point with each Monday post is, what are you doing or going to do today to make your home sing? It can be an attitude or an action. Motivation, our attitude, baking, encouraging our husband or children (if we have either one), organization, cleaning, saving money....the opportunities are endless.

So what am I doing to make my home sing this week. SLOWING DOWN.. this past week was SUPER busy for us. it was county fair time and Hootin and hollarin festival.. in years past these have been back to back but this year they were the SAME TIME.. Last saturday was the fair pageant you can see pics HERE.. and then we had to take all our entries to the fair our family entered several things.. I entered my two crocheted bibs , the pup and the pig and a baby blanket and Miah entered her Bunny , My sister in law had a blanket, some sugar cane , a 142lb pumpkin and two pigs and a goat.. she won grand champion with her cane(used to make molasses it think) it was grown by my hubby's grandpa who processes it every year it is SO good, also the pumpkin won best of show and grand champion , as did the goat and pigs.. our bunny got a second ribbon my crochet stuff got third..i guess i had a few loose thread OH WELL.. We had a the baby contest and animal shows on Thursday i spend all day at the fair till from around 9 am till about 11pm. Miah had a dentist appointment that am as well.. Friday we went to feed the bunny then to hootin and hollarin for another pageant both kids were in .. they didn't win anything either time but they had fun.. i am putting a few pics below.. Friday night after hubby got off work we went back to Hootin an Hollarin , listened to the bluegrass , ran into several friends and a lot of family. then spend all day Saturday at the fair watching the parade of champions , and the chain saw cutting contest, the kids rode rides, I even got to ride ONE.. it was a Farris wheel that used to belong to Michael Jackson and was at never land.. it was sold a while before his death when he was liquidation things after his trial.. but i rode it.. just to say i did.. i learned im not a fan of heights..

  1. Wow - what a busy (but fun sounding) week!

  2. Oh, she looks so cute in that outfit! Love the bright purple color.

    I think you'll definitely enjoy slowing down after your busy weekend. Sounds like you had a blast, though! Thank you for joining up today.

  3. Oh, that's cute how she was entered into the fair!!

    Let us know what you're having!!!! And I think it's a good idea to slow down sometimes! We all need to once in awhile.
