I made this from scrapbook paper and stickers I had on hand. I found the owls printable from Pinterest and printed the picture of Carson. I think it turned out pretty cute. I hope Carson likes it LOL.

4H Fair 2013



 It was fair week this week. Kellan is the third person away from the judge, showing Blizzard his New Zealand rabbit. I snapped a picture of my kids playing watching from the bleachers. It is a little hard to see, for some reason they have their backs to us from where we are seated. I didn't get a picture of Carson and I. He was fast asleep in his Moby D wrap. We had to leave before they handed out the prizes. Kellan came home to tell me Blizzard won Best Opposite Sex! Way to go Kellan and Blizzard! I think next year I will have Brooklyn show rabbits too. Kellan is having a fun week at fair hanging out with his 4H buddies.
