books, walking and art

 mon i had my last 3 HOUR dentist appoint. after my appoint i hit up sally ann and scored 20 books for 10.00. the best deal was ALL of the little house books for 5.00!  i got 5 pooh readers for ellie and 4 christian books!!!! for me!  awesome! i havent read any of the little house books, i can.not. wait to read them with ellie!!!
 horrid pic of me i know, but i adore how jo was so tired, she literally put her cheek on mine to stay up.  fresh out of the bath girl snuggles!  love it
 last night was the start up night for the kids ministry at the church, the team is spy!  which is so up nate's ally!  the best part about the program is dropping your kid up and picking them up  and hr and 15 min later. i talked my friend into bringing her kids along too, so we dropped the kids up and hit the park behind the church up. which i had NO idea this park existed!  we walked for an hour in beauty. it was the best way to spend a tues night. so now, we will make this a weekly thing until the snow falls, then we will hit up the coffee shops.  i can not believe i didnt know this park had back trails like this. i could spend hours walking them. so nice!
 the last 2 weeks ellie has really taken on art projects!  nate joins us to when he can.  i LOVE making things with her and most days she tells me what she wants to make, today it was a tiger. 
ellie's art work, notice the top purple sheet, that was nate's scarecrow, which he turned into a mind craft crow. ha.  he did a great job on it, the pink one beside it is ellie's scarecrow. she did all of it herself (i cut the paper) she glued it. i LOVE it. it really is a scare! crow! haha
