Bryson City Bound!

So this year we decided for the Thanksgiving Holiday break we would take a ride on the Polar Express in Bryson City!

We have discovered this great B&B in Bryson City right in the middle of town called the Calhoun House.  It used to be a boarding house in the late 1800's so I'm sure there are some spirits hanging around in the little rooms.  It's nothing fancy just a great place to stay while in Bryson City.  The couple that runs it makes a great breakfast every morning!

There she comes down the tracks...Our ride was at 8:15pm, it was dark and it was cold!  The perfect setting for a ride on the Polar Express in the Great Smoky Mountains.

If you've never road on the Great Smokey Mountains Railroad you are missing a treat.  I believe Scott and I enjoy as much as the girls!

Bryson City is right in the Great Smoky Mountains and one of the state parks is just around the corner.  Saturday we hiked to a waterfall and drank beer at the Nantahala Brewery all in one day!  
You can't beat that!

Having fun!

Had fun with Ronald for LFE Spirit Night! I was surprised that Lula Mae wasn't afraid of ol' Ron!

Lula Mae was invited to her first birthday party from school friends this weekend!  And then another!  In the same weekend!  Momma's tired!

The one of the birthday parties was amazing!  It was a fairy garden tea party!  I hope you enjoy the pictures because Lula Mae and I really enjoyed being there!

hanging out in the san souci community garden

Emily McSherry and Matt Fassas as well as Nikki Talley played at the San Souci Community Garden this past Sunday and we actually made it out to see the show!  
 The girls had a great time dancing, listening and playing! 
 I love the atmosphere there, it's a great set up for music, movies and families!  They even have an inside bathroom!!!
Okay so now we have to get a swing like this on a tree in our yard as soon as possible Scott Hart!
 My latest experiments in image transfers.  These three are packing tape transfers directly into my junk journal.
 I particularly like the way the typed words underneath the transfer can be seen and the transferred words came out unexpected great!
After I made these transfers from packing tape I decided to try the gel medium technique.  I'll try to post those soon!
I like both processes although the gel medium technique was slightly more time consuming because you had to let the gel dry completely before removing the paper.  Both techniques are great, giving two totally different looks and feelings with the transferred image.  The tape image is shiny but the gel image is more matt and painterly.
