Second Generation Pumpkin!

Twenty seven years ago, Emily dressed up in her first Halloween costume. Her Grandma Chisman made her this little pumpkin costume. She looked so cute!

Today, I dressed Tressie up in it! She also looks soooo cute!

Sure it's a little big, but I couldn't wait a whole year for these pictures!

She's a keeper!

Still to come...we have a Minnie Mouse costume, a Raggedy Ann costume, a clown costume, a 50's poodle skirt.... Stay tuned!!!

Open House/50th Birthday Party

We had an open house on Saturday, September 25th, which also happened to be my 50th birthday! It was a beautiful fall day and we enjoyed visiting with alot of family and friends!

Our neighbor and friend, Judy Jacobs, made a fun cake for the open house and also a 50th birthday cake for me!

I finally got some pictures of our new house posted in my last post. So, if you weren't able to come that day, you can take the tour via the blog!

Our new little HOME on the Wild Horse Prairie

Tony and I have been living in our new house for about a month now. It is officially our new "home"! Everything has found a place, and we have been able to sit in the living room in the evenings and enjoy it! We still have quite a bit of landscaping to do next spring, but Tony has worked hard and we do have more than just a big sand pile!

Another view of the outside.

We are loving the open space of the living room/kitchen/dining room area!

The kitchen is very functional, with just the right amount of cabinets and counter top work space!

The large dining room space allows us to extend the table for more seating. The patio door also gives us alot of bright sunlight during the day!

The master bedroom.

The master bath.

The office.

The guest bath, which Emily refers to as the spa bath!

And, the guest room which also is Tressie's room with her crib, toys and baby gear!

We would love to have our family and friends stop by when they go "thru" Wild Horse!
