Farmer Derek and the Fam

 My sister Alicia and her family were here from the promise land (Oklahoma) over Thanksgiving weekend. My Nephew and Nieces love with a capital "L" farmer Derek. If you don't know who farmer Derek is go to YouTube or click here and you will see what I'm talking about. He does parodies of popular songs and relates them all to farming. Alicia says they watch them over and over and over again. When I told the kiddos that I know Farmer Derek and his family  (they are neighbors of ours and their daughter is in Ky's class at school) they went crazy. Then when I told them I set it up so that they could meet him while they were here. You would have thought I told them they were going to meet Santa on Christmas morning. SOOOOO Excited!!! After brunch we headed over to their farm for the afternoon.

 It was fun to see some of the props he using in his videos and

 the green screen he shoots parts of the videos in front of.
 Of course there were some selfies!!
 The kids loved running all over the farm, swinging on the barn rope swing and playing with the other kiddos. But, the best thing about the day was of course meeting Farmer Derek. Thank you Derek and Kara for letting me help give the kiddos such a great afternoon I'm so grateful!

Thanksgiving 2016

We hosted Thanksgiving this year. There was 18 of us total this year that could make it. 
Everyone brought such de-lish food it was a big ole feast.
Seriously, so much food!

And the pies......So Good!
The kids table is quickly turning into a young adult table which I'm not to sure I like. Ugh!

After everyone had eaten and the dishes were done it was time to strategize on the shopping. Ha!
We finished up the day playing a card game that I have never heard of before and I can't remember the name. But, I want to tell you that it is a VERY loud crazy game that everyone loved. I think it will probably be played again at the next family function.  It was a great day to kick off the holiday season. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving as well!

Under Her Umbrella Dinner Theater

A couple of weeks ago we were asked to help with the food making for the High School's dinner theater they were putting on. And anyone that knows the Milkman knows he LOVES to cook so he went to work. Thankfully, we had a bunch of amazing helpers. 

 And the most yummy dessert was served by "Nothing Bundt Cakes" So De-lish!

 I will admit that I was worried about getting the food out and keeping it hot but everyone worked like a well oiled machine and got it done.

 Tiana along with all of the cast, crew, teachers and staff did an UNBELIEVABLE job it was such a great show. It was so great to be part of such a great event.

Natalia's Graduation Party

A little over a week ago we finally had Natalia's Graduation party. She passed her state boards from Cosmetology school so of course we had to celebrate all her hard work. We just did a simple come and go party. We were so grateful for everyone that came to congratulate her. 
My sister Jenny made the cake and she did a great job! Love it!

I am always so blessed to have amazing friends that come and help me with any event I am doing. So grateful to them. I will admit I didn't get a picture of all of the friends that helped me, so sorry!

So many family and friends came out to show Natalia so much love.

Natalia we are so proud of you and all of your hard work. We are so excited to see how God uses your skills out in the world of hair. Love you so much!
