A gypsy...a football player...a ballerina



I may be slightly partial, but how cute are they?  Cecily the gypsy, Bentley the football player and JennaBeth the ballerina.

We had our annual Fall Festival at church last night.  Our parking lot was full of the likes of princesses, spidermans, Hannah Montana look a-likes and so on. We even had "Twister Girl" aka Darci...





We had such a good time, but it was SO HOT!!!  The Floridians keep telling me I'll get used to the weather, but... I'm really not sure about that!

Bentley had such a good time playing the games, but of course the bounce house was his favorite...

 
I was able to pry him away to play some of the other games...
 

 
Since Cecily is now in the youth group, she was a helper at some of the games.  She was doing that while I took Bentley and JennaBeth around the Festival...


JennaBeth was so patient as she and I took Bentley around to play games.  She rode in the stroller and watched everything.  She is very observant these days...
 

During the first hour while I was taking the little ones around, Mike, pastor Hal and another gentleman in our church played and sang for the crowd...
 

Our Senior Adults really work hard and help out in a big way by cooking and serving hotdogs.  I think they cooked somewhere around 600 last night!
 

Another highlight of the night for Bentley was getting his picture taken with his highschool football hero, Birchel...
 

This young man is a member of the youth group and Bentley just thinks he is the coolest, because he plays football.  He tells us all the time, "When I get to be a big boy, I'm going to play football like Birchel."

JennaBeth also got her picture taken with on of our Elders, David Moody.  She has really taken to him!  You know how babies will raise their little arms and squeeze their hands together for you to take them?  Well, JennaBeth did this for Mr. David first!
 

I got these shots of Cecily and JennaBeth towards the end of the evening...

 
 
Even though the little "saint" was drenched with sweat from head to toe by the end of the night, he still is grinning from ear to ear!  I don't know where the energy comes from!!!

Mike was able to take today off and Cecily is out of school today and tomorrow.  We are just hanging around the house.  I think a trip to the beach is planned for tomorrow!  Yes, the beach in October!!!  Only in Southwest Florida!!

Counting it all Joy,
Jennifer

adorable! As much as I love the summer and the heat, I must say, there is something nice to cool, crisp weather during a fall festival. :)

Although a nice hot day at the beach in october would be fun! ;)
hope you all had fun!
