Last night the Valley Voices Choir was in the Kallispell parade. Hannah, Caitlin, Jillian, Hayley, Nora, Nicole, the Stafford girls, and myself, all dress up in Victorian dresses. It was so much fun handing out candy to cute little kids! I don't think I've had that much fun for a long time. I totally came out of my comfort zone. Giving little kids my biggest cheesiest smile and telling them I liked their hat, or gasp and say that I have the same name too! The hardest part was trying to hand tiny little kids candy with mittens on. They would just drop it! We had the Llama, Alpaca group behind us, and Hannah and I would keep merging with the llamas when we were slow at handing out candy. I was so funny to hear what people said about us. We had some parents ask us if we were faeries! I mean come on, do faeries were hoop skirts, bonnets, and leather gloves! We must of heard over 20 people say princesses, and many asked what play we were from. Just about every kid we handed candy to, their parents would say "say thank you" It was cute, but every kid! Didn't any of them know how to say it by themselves! And anyway I didn't have time to wait around for each kid to say thank for a tootsie roll. Oh, and half way through the parade my bonnet kept falling off so I ran over and put it on the float. It was embarrassing trying to get it off because the ties got caught in my scarf and the Llamas were catching up. I was like pulling and twisting, but finally got it off. It truly was a blast!

Sorry I don't have any pictures. Tell me if you want me to call about the Bigfork parade, and maybe caroling in Bigfork again.

All things bright and beautiful!

The other evening there was the most beautiful sunset. Hasn't God created a wonderful world for us to live in? The night is far spent, the day is at hand,
Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness,
and let us put on the armor of light.
Romans 13.12

Mushroom fancy.

Sorry I've been very uninspired when it comes to blog post lately. Well, as you may know. I hate mushrooms in food. But I think they look adorable, or I guess toadstools are. So, here are some really cute pictures I've found, mostly from etsy.This little cottage, is so cute as it is, but adding a few little red accents make it picture perfect.The hand stitching and lace, make this little guy adorable.I just adore this picture. It's so funny! who would have ever thought snails could be so cute.I'm sorry "person" whose little kid this is for posting it on my blog, but isn't this the neatest hat ever (cute boy too)

I think this could be the cherry on top to just about any outfit, or should I say mushroom.
