Progressive Stage Fright

See that cute little blonde next to Logan?
Make sure that you look at the brown pants.
Gracelyn started out ok at the VBS program.
And then...



She must have see the crowd.
See that little bit of brown to the left of Logan's right knee?


This is where she ended up.
To her credit, she did not run and  cry, she just hid behind all the kids.
When it was over, she calmly stood up and walked off the stage.
I don't see show business in her future.


However, this one, in the blue shirt...
He LOVES an audience!


These were my yard sale finds from Friday AM.
Great finds!
Total?
$17.00


These towels arrived in the mail the other day.
They are from Williams and Sonoma.
Shelby sent them to me. 
She uses them and they are so absorbent.
What a nice surprise!

I have to go on the record and thank my girls this week.
Shelby, of course for the towels.
Jennifer for making all my food that I volunteered for on Friday.
Dianna for staying and helping me take down the 500 fish on the wall at the church and for bringing buns for the food that I volunteered to make.
Shawnee for bringing potatoes for the food I volunteered to make also, (seeing a pattern here?)
and for helping me decorate and un-decorate the church.
I have the best daughters, EVER!!!!
