You feel like your getting older when your eldest nephew up and marries without as much as a wink. Yes thats right folks. My nephew got hitched and not even 22 years old yet. *Sigh* Even though I am only 6 years older then him, it just makes you FEEL alot older then you should be. LOL. I love him and cant wait to meet my new niece in law.

The next phase

So my daughter is moving alog in leaps and bounds! She said her name yesterday, and then she told me "I shut this thing" Meaning the hall door. Where is this all comming from? I know she is growing, but sentences, and doing things with absolute concentration and purpose? WOW. She is getting to be such a big girl. Where is that tiny baby I brought home? I miss that and at the same time I am so excited for her to be a little girl at the same time. Being a parent is an absolute conundrum!

Fun at the fair.

This year I had 26 enteries at the linn county fair. 17 photography, 7 jewelry and 2 scrapbook pages. 12 of these placed. What pleased me to no end was the first place win in the human interest category which also took the special award for most representative of the fair theme, and the theme of this years fair was "theres magic at the fair." My daughter is the most magical thing in my life and it is no wonder that this image won first place and the special award. Just look at the picture and you will see why she means so much to me.

Hilarity of Cats

My family has been blessed to be fostering a litter of 7 baby kittens. It is like having another child around as they get into everything and they dont listen! Plus 1am get the idea. Anything that is my daughters is theres and Morgan feels that whatever is theirs is hers....this includes their food and poo. Gross I know. But as I said what is hers is theres as the picture will attest to. We call this potty training "kitty style." and it is quite humerous.

Strawberry Shortcake

I have to say I have the cutest red head in the whole world. Daddy was harassing her last night to wear her pink cowgirl hat so we could take pictures. I managed to get a few then realized little fingers had smudged up the lense of my camera so after cleaning that up, I got better ones. She so cracks me up! A friend said she looks like strawberry shortcake in her hat.

Time Flys!

It has been such a long time since I have written anything. Makes you wonder where the world has been. My daughter is almost 16 months old. One of her most faveriote things is Mud. Good old fashioned mud.
 If there is water around, there must be dirt too. She searches it out like a coon dog on the hunt. Its amazing where and how she will get dirty. I am thinking of taking stock in Spray N' Wash and Tide Stain release. Two very friendly items that live in the laundry cubbord. Because of those two things Morgan only has a few pieces of clothing that are stained. And most of those dont fit anymore! My daughter is my pride and joy, even if she is reaching up with the grubbiest hands I have ever seen. you just scoop her up, mud and all and give her kisses and hugs!

Morgans first birthday!

My daughter is 11 months old. I wonder why they grow so fast. You sit there and they are this tiny baby and then the next day they are twice as big, and then bigger and then bigger again. The time sure does fly! She is walking, sorta. She likes the speed of crawling, and she gets impatient so she drops and crawls. It is funny to watch her concentrate to walk. All she nees is a small bottle of whisky and a salor hat. Thats what she looks like trying to walk. A drunken salor. Very funny. But i have made her birthday invitations. Multi colored lady bugs. Each invitation is a different color.. They are super cute!
