Happy Birthday, Wyatt

Today is our friend, Wyatt's birthday!   He's three!  We'll be spending our day at the Wyatt County Fair with him and having a great time eating all kinds of fAire foods that mom would NEVER let us have and we'll be going on the ferris wheel and the rollie coaster and having the time of our lives!

I picked flowers from our garden early this morning and have entered them in hopes that my arrangement will get me a pretty ribbon!

And I have an entry in the quilts and crafts.  This is the Dale runner that's on our kitchen table.  I sure hope it takes a ribbon too!
And Mitch has entered his most perfect apples hoping to snag a blue ribbon!

We are ready to pawty with Wyatt and Stanzie!

Hope to see you at the fAire!

We snagged a picture from cousin Trish of our dad and Jeff at the barn raising.   Jeff is the owner of this beautiful building.
This is the barn at the end of Saturday.  The timber framers are fast workers and they do beautiful work!
And this is the end of day #2, which was this past Sunday.  Afterwards was the huge barn pawty. Dad said that the chicken and pulled pork was fabulous!

So until next time............
Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

  8. You entered wonderful stuff for Wyatt's Birthday party. I'm sure you guys will win nice blue ribbons.
    WOW that barn raising was such a good idea. Went up fast. Thanks for showing us how it all works.
    Congrats to your dad, he's a great motivator!

  9. Maggie and Mitch-

    Thanks for coming to my fair! Too bad the timber framers couldn't enter that barn for a ribbon, that is a winner! See you tomorrow for the fair entries :)

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  10. Love the photo of them all on the barn;)

  11. Maggie and Mitch! Thank you for your barkday wishes to our brudder.... now it's our turn to say happy hapy birthday, Wyatt!!!

  12. Hi Maggie and Mitch, we're very impressed with the skill and expertise that everyone shows in the barn raising. We also think that your dad is extremely talented and a great project director. My dad's tummy is making noises - he must be thinking about the chicken and pulled pork :)

  13. That barn photo - day 2 - gave me goose bumps. We just don't see people coming together to help each other very often. We know they do, but it's often online. Nice to see concrete evidence!!

  14. Hope you both win lots of ribbons at Wyatts Fair! I entered my chicken.

    The barn rasing looks amazing. Mom said she would have loved to see that in person.

    Hope that you both got a bit of the chicken and pork!

    woos, Tessa

  15. What an awesome barn raising!!! Meet you at the corndog stand?

  16. We snagged a taste of your pawesome apples, and we agreee - they deserve a blue ribbone for sure. Wasn't this fair the best way to celebrate Wyatt's birthday? It has been so much fun.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  17. The fair was so much fun! I know you'll get lots of ribbons.
