International Food Fair

Today we had our last event for our United Way Campaign. Well I guess our last big event. We still have an auction going on and a gun board and raffle tickets. I am really hoping I win that ipad2 next week ;) We have had a super busy October with this campaign. We had a huge turnout at today's event. Different employees from other countries cook popular dishes from their countries and everyone is invited to come taste test everything. We have tons of employees from various countries. At last minute Olga & I were asked to take over USA. After a quick thought we decided on corn dogs, apple pie and hamburger cookies...ha!

Aren't these the cutest things ever?? They were a huge hit and I can't wait to make them for another party or event. Parker would love them!

Shooting Range

Tanner & I had a date last Sunday. At first we had planned on a movie but then I decided to surprise my hubby with a date to the range. My husband loves guns and loves to go shoot so I figured it would be fun to go together. I loved every second & actually do pretty good!

I was a little proud ;)

Little piece of heaven...

A little Rangers game before bed, Parker was so into it!

Of course we had to invite Coop into the picture

Prayer Request

Please pray for a a sweet family that just found out they lost their baby at 11 weeks. There is nothing worse than hearing you lost your sweet baby no matter how many weeks you are. This couple already has a 7 year old boy and they have been trying for a long time to get pregnant with other miscarriages. They finally got pregnant on their own and then lost the baby this morning. My heart is breaking for them. We lost our sweet baby a year ago but it still feels like yesterday. I don't think you will ever forget the feeling. Please pray for comfort and peace for this family as well as a safe d&c this afternoon for Stacey. Thank you!

Friday night I got to attend a MAASquerade ball benefitting Midland Area Aid Society. It was a lot of fun, we got to get really dressed up, wear fun masks, eat great food and do some dancing! I had to leave early to get up really early for the garage sale the next morning but I still got a few hours of girl time!

Saturday morning started off with some AMAZING rain that we are all so grateful for. It did put a damper on my garage sale but it was so worth it. We still had a pretty good turn out but we didn't have a lot of the big items we were hoping for because of the rain. We still made some money that is going to a great cause.

The rest of the afternoon we had to spend with our little crazy 2 year old. Her fits these days are Crazy!! I feel like I am constantly telling her to go to her room. But admidts her craziness she is learning so much. She talks in long sentences that always catch us off guard; kids this age are just sponges. She brings home new projects everyday from school showing all the fun things she is learning. She loves her new daycare by the way. She gets very excited to go every morning. She is still sleeping in her bed very well. Normally Tanner and I will lay with her for awhile but we always end up falling asleep in there. Ever since we moved into this house we also have said her room is so comfortable. As soon as we walk in there we want to crawl in bed. Here she is looking all grown up. Daddy just painted her finger nails and toe nails. Such a good daddy =)

I also FINALLY got rid of the volvo. Woohoo! I did go back to the Ford Edge like I had before the Volvo. I just loved it so much and was sad to get rid of it in the first place. Here is my new little beauty.

We had a busy weekend and now we are ready for another busy week. I am heading to see Taylor Swift in Lubbock on Friday...I am so excited like a llittle junior high kid =)
