I love this time of year. There are festivals, bluegrass groups, and craft fairs all over the ozarks. My hubby, my sister and I went to the War Eagle craft Fair in Arkansas yesterday. The colors are changing and it was so beautiful as we drove about an hour through southern Missouri to get there from where we live. We bought the cutest snowman made out of a large gourd. He has on glasses. When you open a little door on the front of him there is a Christmas scene with snow inside. A bulb in the back lights him up. He is so cute. People make things out of everything, it's amazing. We ended the nice day at the FFA Chili feed with homemade ice cream, at our grandsons school. It was a very fun day, with good food.
