Let's go to the Fair!

Dear Friends,

A happy September to you! We celebrated by holding our annual Doll's Fair (for the small dolls) today, and by tearing up the floor in the bathroom (we really know how to party, don't we? ;0) ).

The fair had to be held indoors this year, due to inclement weather, but everyone agreed it was a wonderful time!

~The art display~

~The beetle race~

~The knickknack booth~

~And a lovely ride for everyone~

~Of course, Elvis put in a guest appearance!~

~And so did a little Button Nose!~

~Aprons for sale~

And here is the no-less exciting "mending the floor" part~

~Miss Tasha helping to mend the "lovely" hole in the bathroom floor~

~And Evangeline took this picture of yours truly (seems everyone is a photographer these days!)~

~Of course we took time out to love the baby~

We didn't quite get the new piece of plywood cut to fit just yet (it's on the slate for tomorrow), but tearing up the old floor was quite enough of a workout for one day! One more reason we'll be awful glad to see Mr. Graham, (Who, incidentally, has announced that he has found employment in Kansas City! Yay! We should be moving sometime in October, after his initial training period has ended. Better get the rest of those repairs done, now!

We hope that you enjoyed our little fair~ really, we wish you all could have been here, too. We have a sneaking suspicion that Tasha Tudor was peeking at it from Heaven. :)




  1. Just lovely Marqueta! Tell your girls they have quite the imagination:-)

  2. Oh dear friend, I remember how it was when we had to sell our house and how we needed to finish up some repairs before we sold it!

    The girls fair...just perfect for the first day of September :)

    Hurray for Mr. Graham and Our Lord providing employment for him. Don't forget to email me your new address.

    Con mucho carino,

  6. YaY! What good news that your husband has found a job! An answer to prayer! I know you and all the kids must miss him so, and soon you'll all be reunited!

    Blessings to you while you finish up the repairs in your home before following your husband to Kansas City, may the Lord's grace and strength be with you all as you pull together with team work while Daddy is gone.

  8. Dear ♥Mama♥,
    The doll fair was very fun, indeed1
    it would have been fun if we held the fair outdoors, but indoors was fine, too!:)
    I love you and I like you!

  9. Best fair day I have ever seen!

    Your bathroom floor brings memories of our own redos etc when we had an 85 yr old house.

    Congrats on the job and the moving in October! How exciting.

    Love Erika
