Hello T-gang and friends, time to take the whole world in a single cup......cause it's Tuesday once again!!
Time to grab your drink and see what's going on with the T-gang.
I've had all the coffee I can handle for today and now I'm drinking my protein shake......yummmmmmm!! It has 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 scoop protein powder and some fizzy flavored water, and ice to make it a cold slushy shake.
Here we are, last Friday night, making cheer posters for the Spartan's football team. Three 9 year old girls each had to make two posters. I had Cricut all the letters and numbers. The helmets and large football were hand cut. They had bought some other die cuts to add to them too.
The top one is the first one Jalynn made and the Bottom one is Hannah's......at this point they were laying out the letters and gluing them down
The top poster is the one Rachel is working on
The Moms got in the way of the girls and were soon side lined to other things. LOL The little girls knew what they wanted and were better at it than the Moms!!! Vanessa is Hannah's Mom and Virginia ( in the stripes) is Vanessa's sister and they are going to buy my older Cricut and cartridges, so I started teaching them how to run it. There is be more lessons in the future for sure!!
Saturday morning at 7 AM we were setting up for this BBQ cook off.
It was NOT advertised at all, nobody really knew about it......and it's the 4th annual????? I think they had 13 teams signed up, but only 6 showed up.......really sad when there are about 15 other teams that are near by and would have come..........gotta advertise!!!
We told them to contact us next year and we would help them get it off the ground and also make some money for the city. Wasco is slightly bigger than Shafter, and they have always been rivals......small towns love......eh??
My DH and Ken....Virginia's DH
The three smokers ready to go.
Well, with only 6 teams competing, it was a really friendly cook. This was our first year at this event, and we just happen to find out about it from a friend of my Son.
So how did we do?????
For the over all category we took 2nd place.
Our 1st place tri tip was all done by my DH.....woot! woot! Gotta show those "kids" how it's done......LOL
There has been some creativity going on too, but I'll save that for an other post......*grin*
WELCOME A NEW FRIEND!!Valerie and her blog: Bastelmania What a fantastic mix media artist and a phenomenal photographer she is. You MUST drop by her blog and have a look at her work.
I might not be able to make any early rounds, as I have to pick up the GDs from school this afternoon and each afternoon this week. Hannah's grades have slipped down since starting cheer (mostly incomplete work), due to the ridged practices three days a week. This week it is 4 days as this Saturday is Home Coming game. She and her sister are in an after school day care, cause both parents work, and they can't be picked up at 2:30. And by the time they are picked up it is to rush home, have a quick dinner and get ready for cheer practice.......that lasts for more than 2 hours a day. Then home, bath and bedtime.
So on cheer practice days I am going to get them home early and Hannah can have study time and time to get her homework done.
So that's the T-day post for this week, as soon as E goes live I'll link up.
