In the meantime, I finished my scrapblog about the fair and thought I would share it with you. I tried to give it an Old West feeling. Please let me know what you think.

UPDATE - It looks like something is wrong with this scrapblog. Click here to go directly to the site.
They will find out Monday if they will be needed for station repair and still may have to go. But by then Ike will have been gone from town for quite some time.
Let's keep praying for all those still there, and all the restoration workers and rescuers that have gone in to help.

Unless you have just confined yourself into a hole somewhere, you know that Hurricane Ike is spinning its way towards the Texas Coast, probably making a direct hit to Galveston and Houston. Not only do Frank and I both have family and friends in that area, he is on standby for storm recovery. That means he will be headed south when all others are headed north!
I know we have all put the residents of the coast on our prayer list, but please add all those that will be going in after it hits. This is a huge storm that will effect our entire Gulf Coast region, and that my friends is a lot of coast line!
You know the old saying "EVERYTHINGS BIGGER IN TEXAS" and that includes our storms as well.

Of course all fairs have entries for cooking, sewing, live stock, etc. My favorite is the photography. This year I had 14 entries and won three ribbons. Yeah me!
I won sixth place on this...
And first place on this...
And last but definitely not least, I also won 1st place on this...
This is the Grandparent Brag contest. It is judged on several different things;
A.Ability to Follow Rules
(You can click here to see more of the rules)
I was really proud of this one and of course it gave me a chance to brag on Mattie May! (Click on any of the pictures to enlarge them)
I am working on a scrapblog from all the fun we have had this week and will post it as soon as it is finished.
Every one keep those in the path of Ike in your prayers!

OK, so we eat dinner at the table because we feel it is the best family time we can have all day. We try to eat before 7PM but on Wednesday night we have church, so it is considerably later than that. And I don't know about you, but when we get tired, we get silly. This is just a small sampling of what we do when we get silly.
Have you ever seen so much silliness? Just part of our crazy family antics.
