Ahh! The Invention of the Telephone

So, we all have probably heard the saying, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend". I think I might have to disagree with that and say that it is probably the telephone. Through the many years since the telephone was invented, girls have chosen this object to be the desire of their heart, the connection, and the addition to their ear. And so it starts with our family. Yes, my girls have discovered, THE TELEPHONE. It rings constantly around here and I wish I could say it was for me, but no, it is usually for Megan and sometimes Emilee. Some days the girl's get home from school, they rush in the door, and it is not uncommon for me to hear the question from Emilee, "Mom, can I call Lilly". I then say,"Didn't you just see here all day at school." Emilee then might say, "But I didn't get to talk to her." Later, the phone rings, "Is Megan there"....hold on please. 10 min later, the phone rings, "Is Megan there...and this might go on a few more times through out the day. Sometimes I might even hear Megan and Emilee get upset with one another, because the other has been on the phone long enough. Now I fully expected this to happen, but I thought I had a few more years. So, now it starts, my girls are growing up and I can't seem to stop it. I am not sure I like it. I am just grateful they still think boys are yucky.

Madison Street Festival

Yesterday we were thinking of something to do together as a family and what do you know, there was a Madison Street Festival. Now we actually live in Madison which is just right outside of Huntsville. (they pretty much are like one city) The festival was in downtown Madison. There was lots to look at. Many cute and things to see. (I think I might even got a few ideas for the next Super Saturday) Every booth we went to the kids were like, I want that, I like that, Can you buy that?.....Oh to be a kid again with no worries of where the cash really comes from. Somehow they seem to think that I can just put my magic card in the machine and poof, the item is theirs. Well, we actually made it with only spending $3.00 for the bounce houses. I think that is pretty good. It was a beautiful day and fun to be out in the sun on a fantastic fall day.

The kids saw a Star Wars Storm trooper out and had to take their picture with him. Hunter was a little scared of him, but with Dad in the picture with him, we was able to brave the big bad storm trooper. We were hoping to dunk Hunter's teacher and the kid's PE teacher in the dunk tank, but we were too late. They had already finished earlier that day. Too bad for us, but the kids got there faces panted instead.

We had a good time. That is one thing fun about living out this way, lots of different festivals. Most are fun to go to. Every once in awhile we hit one that was not worth it, but for the most part, we really do enjoy them.
