Scary girl!

Last night, Lorelei had her mom send me this picture...I told Sarah to tell her Pink Princesses were not supposed to make those kinds of faces.  Sarah said she did even more after I told her that.
We have had some kind of sinus/cold type thing.  Roger lost his voice about three days ago...still has not got it totally back.  Lo had it too, and felt really bad for a few days and ran a temperature.  Hoping her aunt does not come down with it...she was in for a few days. 

When they went to pick her aunt up, Sarah told Lo that they were going to pick up a package.  When they got to the airport, Sarah told Lorelei that she must have taken a wrong turn, so pretended to look up something while they waited for 'Aunt' to get in...

Well, Lorelei started....Mommy, lets go see Aunt R....Sarah told her no, they couldn' cost too much money...Lo was like Mommy, Please, please for just one day!   And Sarah told her no, it was still expensive, and besides she couldn't miss school.

So her aunt called Sarah when she was ready off the plane, and Sarah drove up to pick her up...didn't tell  Lo what was going on...just had Lo's window down....when she seen her Aunt she got this big old grin on her face and said, "Mommy!  You tricked me." 

Roger and I both had the cold/sinus thing by then, so we didn't go over that night as we had planned.  So, they called later that night, and Lorelei was bouncing off the walls she was happy.
This weekend marks the last of the Parke County Covered Bridge festival for this starts the second Friday of October and lasts for 10 days.  The population of all of Parke County is a bit less than 20,000, that is not a typo.  It is a rural county.  But the Covered Bridge Festival brings in millions of visitors every year. 

Most little communities have some vendors set up, with Rockville, Mansfield, and Bridgeton being the biggest beehive of activity.  It is a lot of fun, and most everyone is there to have a good time...there's food to eat and lots of stuff to see:  crafts, antiques, books, name it and you can probably find it there somewhere.
It has turned cool here...highs are in the 60's during the day.  Not sure what it gets down to at night but we have not had a hard freeze....we did kick the heat on last night.  Next week, some days the highs are predicted to only be in the 50's.

Scary princess girl! Too cute! What a nice surprise for Lorlei. UGH! That cold thingy sounds nasty. Although - hmm wouldn't mind Cameron loosing his voice sometimes! HA! :)

Oh, what a cutie!

John and I had something similar about 2 weeks ago.

Stay warm this weekend.

We are suppose to get the first frost this weekend. How many covered bridges do you have? We have a very few and all are on private property except one. Oh, that face. The joys of childhood...

What a nice surprise for Lorelei... Was this her Daddy's sister? Where does she live? I'm sure they all had a good time together.

Hope you and Roger are feeling better. Seems like you all have been sick alot this year. Guess having a little one around will do that!!!!

Hope you and Roger are getting over the "bug". Some of those can be pretty nasty. That Lorelei is something else! I'll bet there's never a dull moment when she's around!

It is kind of hard to imagine a pretty wee girl in pink being scary, she must be gearing up for Halloween, lol.
Sorry to hear you have all been poorly, hope it all clears up soon.
I'm hoping to see some covered bridges when we go on holiday - we don't really have them here - they look so lovely. Your event sounds like a lot of fun.
Thanks for popping over to my blog - I'm afraid I seem to be out of the way of blogging recently.
Have a lovely weekend. :))

Wondered where you'd been.
Hope you and Roger are feeling better.
It's gotten cool here too. We need cold for the leaves to change without falling to the ground first.
Have a wonderful visit with all!

Hope you and Roger are feeling much better, Rose.

Isn't Lorelei quite the character? She sure knows how to have fun. It's wonderful that she still gets so excited to see her aunt...and that was such a nice surprise for her.

Judy said...

She sure is a dickens :))) Hope you and Roger are feeling better. The festival sounds like a fun thing to do, I'm going to bookmark that for next year and see if we could go.

A great trick to play on Lorelei. We too are getting colder by the week. Cold nights, but 60s and clear and sunny each after day.

Sandra said...

Isn't it fun to surprise youngsters like that? They go along with almost any story you can think of telling them.

I've never seen a scary princess before - she's still cute, though! Loved the airport story. ;-)

Hope you and Roger get feeling better soon. We were in northern Illinois/southern Wisconsin a few weeks ago and my allergies kicked in while there. Took about a week before everything was right again.
