Spring BBQ Update

What a fantastic weekend!  The weather was perfect, the barbecue was a huge success and most importantly...a bunch of money was raised for K9s for Warriors. 
Thanks to all our friends and familythat came out to help and make this event so special. 
No one...and I mean no one went home hungry, in fact many went home with boxes. 
I donated 2 wreaths for the silent auction. 
If you'd like to read more about this event, hop on over the Trailhound Smokers BBQ blog to see more photos and how much money was raised for K9s for Warriors.

Last trip of the year...train ride.

Timm's office closes down between Christmas and New Year's....not a lot going on in the world of construction at that point.  I hate to waste that PTO time doing nothing so we headed to Arizona to ride the Verde Canyon Railroad in Clarkdale.

We saw 3 bald eagles...or the same one three

The engines unhook and attach to the caboose for the return trip. 
Curved tunnel on the route.

Some long over due craft show photos

I thought I posted pictures a while ago but apparently here they are.  The weekend was forecast with possible wind and rain but we were blessed with perfect weather. 
We had almost 100 people come out to shop...not bad for my first year event.   
I converted the workshop for the chaos that is craft show season working into an actual craft show and I have to say I was pleased with how it turned out.   
We had some soft and plush baby blankets Jackie brought.  
The main focus was Christmas. 
Rachel brought some cute stuffed characters as well as the awesome finished pieces. 
Diane and I probably had too many posts but they sell so darn well that when the shows starts there are tons of them.  
Santa was very popular at this and the last show. 
We even had earrings that Diane's daughter helped the African women work on when she went on a service mission trip earlier this year. 
We had some awesome deco-mesh wreaths. 
I totally am in love with this one.  
The quote on this one says it all don't you think? 
I sold several of this style with the Indian corn this it. 
There were lots of gifty items too.  
All in all, I was pleased with the way it turned out, the number of people who came, and the money they spent.  I'll be doing it again next year for sure.

Wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving!
I am so thankful for all our blessings. Timm smoked turkey and then finished them off in the fryer...the best of both tasty.  I made three pans of mashed potatoes, and a huge pot of gravy.  Family brought the rest of the sides and Chris brought a honey baked ham.  Christy made her first batch of southwest cream corn and it was wiped out.  Desserts galore with pumpkin pie, lemon lush, and pumpkin trifle.  Oh my gosh, so much food.  Everyone went home with a to-go box or two to share and enjoy.  
Hope your Thanksgiving was full of love, family and friends.

More trees at Ralph Jones Display

Here are some pictures from my trip last week to Ralph Jones Display.  What an amazing and inspiring place it is.  
Love the jewel tone colors on this tree. 
Love how they use ribbon.  
The use of over sized ornaments and ribbon make for a spectacular tree. 
Awesome Mr. and Mrs. Claus  display. 
Pretty pretty 
White tree with pale green ornaments. 
Gold tones and icicles galore.
