Another Costume

Today for school Ruby got to dress up as either a Pilgrim or a Native American.
We chose Native American since we already had the whole thing figured out
thanks to this Family photo.
However....we did add a little something to it for the occasion.
The day before she had to wear it to school Clint suggested I make a little vest to go over her dress, that way she could help me decorate it the way she wanted.
So I headed to the fabric store and got myself some faux leather and some ribbon trim (we already had the beads and feathers) and this is what we came up with.

It was so easy.
I used an old vest of Ruby's to figure out the my pattern.
Once I did that i just cut it out, sewed the two side seems together and sewed the trim around the neck and down the front.
Then we just cut strips all the way around the bottom for the fringe.
So dang cute!!!!!
Ruby came up with the design of all the accessories that we added.
She did the beads and the feathers all by herself!

Ruby's cute friend Tierney.
The first time I saw this picture I couldn't believe how tall Ruby is getting.
She is a giant it looks like.

Did you notice the hair?????
She got it cut yesterday.
She was a bit traumatized, but loves it now.
Have you ever had to deal with a child wanting their hair cut for weeks and then when you finally do it they cry and throw a fit?
Well it wasn't fun.
After the first cut she said she changed her mind and just wanted to leave it that way.
I think she looks so cute with short hair.

Only in The South

We had a very busy Saturday and pretty much all of it consisted of things that could only happen in The South.
I know that I have said before that there are always these different festivals that they hold here on Ft. Rucker. Its pretty cool that they always have stuff going on. So in the fall they have a chili cook off and you can buy tickets and then go to these different booths and get a little cup of their chili. It's totally fun and there are always fun activities for the kids.
What made us laugh the most this year though was this chili booth.......

I mean honestly.....we couldn't even bring ourselves to try this chili cause the booth just grossed us out.

But there was plenty of other chili to try

Ruby decorated her own thanksgiving bag

And then we waited in line for the obstacle course. Ruby loves doing this and I even gave it a shot this time. I totally rocked it in my UTAH sweatshirt!!!!!!

There goes Ruby

In the afternoon we headed off to the National Peanut Festival.....I probably had no idea there was such a thing.
But it's a pretty big deal around here, so we thought we'd check it.

There were barrels and barrels of peanuts throughout the entire festival,
just grab a handful and shell em as you walk.

Cute Michael and Janan

Our Stake has a booth every year of "Elephant Ears"
basically a scone with cinnamon and sugar on it. The money made goes to the local boy scout groups so we had to give our share and buy one. Yummy!!!!
For sure the best part about going to a festival like this is all the YUMMY food you get to consume. As we finished the night we realized that we didn't even have dinner, just a bunch of junk food. But it was oh soooooo delicious!

Cotton candy

This cotton candy was so good. They even had different flavors! Have you ever heard of that? and if so have you ever tried it?
Well we did....of course. Remember I said all we ate was junk food.
We tried grape, green apple, and strawberry

Next we found the Kettle corn
and ate the entire bag

Then we saw these tasty Turkey Legs. Don't they look Yummy?
Well I couldn't tell you cause we didn't get one.
Remember the junk food?
I'm not kidding when I said that's all we ate.
I mean those logs look good, but c'mon we had to save room for the important stuff.

We had a great time walking around and checking everything out. Even though we were a bit creeped by the Carni people.
