carnival


you know as an adult…when you have to do things out of obligation…when going places like carnivals become a drag…but for whatever reason you still have to go. well seeing the excitement on a child’s face changes all of that. things that seem so simple and so “un”fancy…light up children in ways that adults forget about. carnival was a lot of work, but worth every second of it. i am so happy that it was a wonderful day for amory and maelee rose…with the highlights being: hair painting and the pony rides…oooo…plus the confetti eggs too! so here’s to another three years of carnival ahead!

working in the booth meant that i didn’t get to go around with the little ones, but they did stop in quite a bit. and i did get to meet some neat people and see a lot of familiar faces. i am still amazed with how great kelsey did all day long without taking a break. thanks kels. And i am ├╝ber grateful for my other helpers who came to serve their shifts. especially to chris who turned things around and die cut like a master. plus connie and marsha…well you were completely awesome too! thanks guys. then of course there is my family who bring so much joy to my life…just for being themselves. i love you!
