Fall Festivals October 2016

Fall festivals are my favorite time of year. The weather is cooling down, the leaves are turning colors, the pumpkins give me a happy feeling. Fall begins the holiday seasons of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. For the next three months I get to read my holiday books at schools and Rod and I are practicing our Christmas songs

In Octobter we kicked off the Fall Festivals at Scott’s Plantation Cotton Festival. That is where Rod and I met three years ago. He was playing music and I was selling my books. We have enjoyed getting to know each other, singing music everywhere together, and now writing children’s books together.

The Happy Pumpkin, Patch by Carol Dabbney. Great to read to young children every fall.

Singing with Rod and Carol May 2016

Rod and I love singing together. We both have a passion for God and country. We sing a variety of songs from country, folk, gospel, patriotic, blues, oldies, Broadway, and even Hawaiian. Here are some pictures of our events in May of 2016. We started out at the Scott Fire and Rescue Department fundraiser dinner. Scott farming community has a special place in our hearts because we met at the Scott’s Plantation Settlement Cotton Festival 3 years ago.
