The fair was going on all last week and since it had cooled down a bit, we decided to head over there. Have you ever seen anything like this? It is a Swirl Fry...remember I'm in Idaho where potatoes can do anything! This thing was well over a foot long and had a stick through it but it was a french fry. I didn't try it...too weird, but Benjamin ate it all and LOVED it!
Nicholas on the other hand, prefers games to food...and we are now the proud owners of 10 goldfish! Don't even get me started!
Happy Birthday to my husband today! Here's George with his 3 boys. Ü


  1. Becky, you have a beautiful family! And yes, I've seen that potatoe thing at the Apple Butter Festival in Berkeley Springs, WVA! I've never been brave enough to try it either! Great pic of your son!

  2. How is a potato/french fry "too weird"? It's potatoes.....
    Also, if you are an SU! demo are they now allowed to use non-SU! products on their blogs? I remember something in the past about SU! banning all non-SU! products and posts on their demo's blogs.

  3. Love your cards Becky! I have never seen that potaote fry thing. Wow! Great family pics. Keep up the great work!

  4. Thanks for the shout out Becky, I appreciate it and am thrilled that you and your customer liked it!

  5. Cute card...never thought of purchasing it until now....thanks! LOL

    I don't understand anonymous' message as everything you used for the card WAS Stampin' Up! material.

    Sheesh!!! Some people's kids!!

    Thanks for sharing Becky and I really love your blog and the wonderful things you share with us.

    How funny....the word verification to submit this is "forkin" as in I don't have a "forkin" idea what "anonymous" was talking about! LOL

    Sorry, I have a weird sense of humor!

  6. Were the goldfish won playing a game? That's so funny because my daughter got some goldfish at a Fair years ago by winning a game. I thought that was the weirdest prize but she thought it was the greatest! Just glad they didn't give goats as prizes since she thought the goats were the cutest animal there!

  7. Hmmm, I bet that orange guy in the middle could take care of those goldfish for you! Ha!

  8. I just love your blog Becky (and your family!) We grow potatos in Oz but I've never seen anything like that done with them!!!! Your birdie cards are so very cute. TFS.

  9. Wowza, that's a big kitty! Reminds me of my orange tabby from many years ago - Tigger got to be somewhere between 23-25 pounds if memory serves. Thanks for sharing the cool french fry - I've never seen such a thing!

  10. Great photos! Happy Birthday to your Hubby! My son's b-day is also today - he is 30!! Time really flies :) I love your blog!

  11. Fun post today! LOVE your card (I don't even own that set.......yet.....) Love hearing about your family, too!!!

  12. Oh I have seen that potato in a funfair around here. What a beautiful family picture and I so love your craft ideas. Looking forward to more fun posts.

  13. Aww Becky I love your big fat kitty! He made me smile :) I used to have a big fat (23 lbs) orange cat just like him but darker - but Shoomka passed away in April :(

    Great cards - you've been on my favorites list a long time & you never disappoint!!!
