Troy's brother and his wife came to visit us for a few days and we drove to see Bailey & Braden for a few hours. He wanted to see his niece and nephew! They took them shopping for a toy and Braden chose this huge spider from the Halloween decorations aisle. (Only Braden!) They had a fun time and I took this photo before we left to drive back home.

My Little Noodle started swimming lessons over ths summer. She was taking group classes but we've switched to private lessons. They are much more worth the money because she only got like 5 minutes per lesson with the teacher in the group lessons and this way, she gets 30 min. each time. Anyway, I took my camera the other day and got some cute "learning to swim" photos.

The past couple of weeks was our State Fair. We decided to take Sarah and we had a lot of fun. She rode this bouncy swing thing, they strapped her in and lifted her in the air on these major bungee cords and Troy helped her to jump really high and bounce. She LOVED it!! I thought she'd be a little afraid, but not my girl! She had a blast and the most beautiful gleeful smile the whole time. I had more fun watching her than I'm sure she had on that thing.
Troy would pull her legs down so she'd bounce up really high.
You can see how happy she was about it and wanted to tell me all about it when she was done!
Sarah's Baba couldn't resist getting the Chinese hat at one of the vendors...and then he just HAD to put it on.
My happy girl
This is her cute butterfly balloon that a clown made for her. It didn't last the night and popped one piece at a time throughout the evening, it was still cute while it lasted.
This is the latest quilt top that I finished. It's called Dance of the Dragonflies. It's a really cool technique that I learned which uses folding fabric in order to create the curves. I think it turned out great and I'm proud of it. Now I need to get cracking on making some Christmas gifts!

I don't know if I ever mentioned that we found about a Chinese class for toddlers and this summer Sarah took her first Chinese class. What was nice was the I went to it, too. That way, I was able to reinforce what she learned and we both learned some Chinese. For the last class we went to the zoo and had lots of fun!
Here is Sarah and one of her classmates playing and having fun!
This is the latest quilt top that I finished over the weekend. I love the colors, but then again, I love anything with purple. This was the first one that I really chose the colors all alone. Usually I need help, but this time I braved it out and I think it turned out great.
