Harvest Nite Party, circa 1981'ish?

OK...so here is a picture of my daughter, dressed up as a "cowgirl" for the church harvest party. (since they couldn't have a true "Halloween" party {what eva}. Anyways...taking it up a notch from the original, dark, blue coat blending in with the dark cabinet; I noticed that although the picture was brighter and lighter....It is now also grain-y-er! {not sure there is such a word..'tis now!} Maybe the grain-y-ness is not TOO bad?

Ahhh...nope...pretty grainy. Ah-ha...maybe if I do "sepia tones"?

Ah...that's much better.
I wonder though...could I improve upon this by airbrushing?????:

One last stop!

Just returned from a WONDERFUL scrapbooking weekend! Well done ladies of the "Quick Quotes" group!
Any ways, back to my...last stop!
A confederate cemetery, just happened to be across from our conference center. And... I just HAD to take some pictures! They're not photo shop edited; but the weather was perfect and the time of day was just right! ...And I was in a hurry to post these.

This particular cannon was seized by Sherman's troops during the end of the civil war. It was taken as a "prize". It was returned to the South and promptly set up on its' own place of honor.

Does each star that is stamped on the "X" on top = a fallen soldier?

Where else?

My friend Maria was getting a bit creeped out speding time in a cementery, but...

look at this beautiful statue! Where else can you see this kind of pre/post Civil war detailed stone work?? Exactly....! Why, your local (old timey) cementery!

Isn't this Angel beautiful? {and there's a story connected with this grave too!} But I'll save that for another time!

The Gates are closing. Well, not exactly "closing" but we did have to get back on the road to home!

Happy Birthday Bro'

Brotherly love!

Nathan and Seth. Seth grew up thinking he was Nath's twin. Nathan alway thought of Seth as his personal brother-baby-gift. No matter which way, being 20 months apart these boys grew up close in age, spirit and mind! Christa grew up calling them..."Boyz!" Short for Nathan and Seth! Once Jarred came along, he too, referred to Nath and Seth as "Boyz"!
