I decided to give the "video" portion of my camera a try. The lighting was poor and the overall quality is pretty louzy, but the kids loved it so I said I'd share with all of you... (I hope this works, it's my first time posting a video file.)
For the last of our Branson trip... While the wee ones were at the tiny amusement rides, the bigger kids got to have fun on two other Go Kart tracks. Hailey is on the one for slightly bigger kids and then there is the grown-up kid one with Rene' and Gentry. It is quite large and is very bumpy due to the wooden planks... thus the reason it is called "Wild Woody".
And back to the resort, Grand Country, they have some pretty large musical instruments there in addition to really great indoor miniature golf courses.
And finally we were on our way home. It rained the entire time, but I doubt the kids noticed... I think they were a bit tuckered out!

Sorry for the delay in posting, I've been a bit under the weather. And speaking of the weather... Autumn is finally starting to make an appearance.
Here are a few more pics from the vacation. There is a tiny amusement park where Gentry and his cousins (of similar age) spent quite a bit of time. The youngest blonde is Keegan, and the red-haired little lady is Keegan's big sister, MaKinzy And the red-haired boy is Christopher. It was just down the street from the hotel and was a perfect way for the wee ones to spend their time.
I finished my sister's quilt. I don't know if she has posted the kit at her ebay store yet, but you can always contact her directly. I really like the way it turned out. It reminds me of scarecrows, I suppose it is the patchwork. Hopefully it arrived today, but I haven't heard if she likes it yet or not.
The guild's BOM this month was this Celtic block. I have never done this before, so I think it turned out quite well.
I also made this cute pumpkin! No sew, no glue and recycling, sounds great to me. And if I decide I need the fabric later on... no problem, it will come apart very easily. I found the instructions here. So quick and easy. Took about 5 mins from deciding to make it, finding the stuff and putting it together. I'll probably let Gentry make one (or more) for craft time during home-schooling.

We stayed at Grand Country. They have a wonderful Fudge & Gift Shop! We bought several different types of fudge. It is so rich that we haven't finished any of them yet. I also found this perfect plate and hanger set. You know me and grapes... I had to have it!
They have this great indoor water park, Splash Country, and the kids had so much fun...okay, I had fun too. It has slides, rope ladders, small pools, a little lazy river, and more.

Just email Cathie, at C and G Crafts, tell her that Kimberly sent you, and you are interested in the Autumn Sassy Sixteen Kit.
I also took time to set up an Etsy store for my patterns... Kimberly Camou Quilts...Divine Inspirations. I get several emails from people wanting to purchase directly from me, maybe this will help with that.
Went to the church on Wednesday for a bit of quilt time. My dear friend, Sandi, surprised me by having finished her Sampler of Psalms top. I'm so proud of her, she did a great job! I did a little bit on my Autumn WH, but not enough to take a new pic. Maybe later on today.
We are having a sew day tomorrow for our guild. Going to make things to sell at the Davies Plantation. Sad to say, I still have no idea what to make. But I need to figure it out soon in case I have to go buy stuff. I'm so slow, it will have to be very easy and fast stuff, preferably inexpensive, but also something that people would like to buy. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
