The following is from Dreemknits blog, she said it best so I cut and pasted straight from her blog. The idea is great and I can't wait to see who responds to me!!!

While blog hopping I stumbled across a neat idea. Well, I thought it was...It's the PAY IT FORWARD Exchange. I found it on Dreemknits blog and joined in the fun. This exchange is based on this gorgeous movie with Helen Hunt in it called 'Pay It Forward'.
How many of you out there have had a chance to watch it? O.K. If you've yet to see the movie, this is what the PIF Exchange is all about......"Here is how it works! I'll send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange! I don't know what that gift will be yet, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week...LOL... but you will receive it within 365 days, that's a promise! and it will be something yummy!! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog..."So the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog, will get something made for them by me! I can't wait to see who you are! I should be able to come up with something good for you all, just you wait and see! Let me know you want in and if you are among the first 3, you'll be in! I'll need your email address when you comment so that I know how to reach you to obtain your address, ok?I can't wait to see who the 3 lucky people will be.

Vegas Baby and a Birthday!!

Well first off the Los Angeles Amazons are DIVISION CHAMPIONS!!!! But more on that in a little bit.

Here is a picture of a tourist if EVER there was one!! We saw this guy at 1 in the afternoon. Colorful to say the least!

And then we have this couple. Elvis and Pricilla on their wedding night. Of course I had to get in on the festivities!!!Saturday night the LA Amazon and the Las Vegas Showgirlz had a game, the final nregular season game for both teams. We won 28-0!! But the best part was my Mom, Dad, and 90 year old Grandma show up for the game. Of course they live there. It was windy and very cold, so they only stayed for the first half. It was the first womens football game they had seen and they said they had fun. Next up for the Amazons is the Conference Championship game against the Southern California Scropions. I love the picture of my Honey below!! I think it is my new favorite. Monday was our oldest AND youngest daughters birthdays. Yup, they share a birthday, ten years apart. Our oldest (19) is in Texas starting her life, but we won't go there just yet. The younger, and our youngest rugrat, is still at home because she is only nine. Here we are, except for myself cause I am not in the picture, and a friend of ours and her daughter.

New Baby!!!!

Fall Festival

Well, this past weekend was pretty fun. Friday night was Pete Knight High School homecoming. They lost. But we had fun.

Saturday (after the rain) was football practice. We actually had a bye this weekend, next weekend we are in Las Vegas. The team is 6 - 1 and probably headed to the playoffs.

Sunday the band headed to the Palmdale Fall Festival. Below is our youngest boy and middle daughter and Honey. The big news is our band is headed for the Hollywood Christmas parade over Thanksgiving weekend!! First band from the AV to go. Of course it is not called Hollywood Christmas parade any longer. But that is how we all know it.

These are the Song Girls and one of our cheerleaders.

Here I am (sans makeup) and the camera bag I whipped up. The changes I will make (I love, love, love the color)

is to make the flap wider and the top of the sides narrower.

I am also working on a baby hat for one of the players baby. She had a baby oh about 8 weeks ago and is out there playing football!!!!!! Can you believe it? Any way pics when I finish it.
Cute, huh?

More pictures from Minnesota

I loved the Mall of America. I was there for two days and still didn't get to every store!!!

The weather was beautiful, it rained early Saturday morning and then cleared up for the game. Other than that, it was about 60 or so the whole weekend!! Of course I hear it snows in St. Paul but I still want to live there. Max and Baby would love it!!

The Ladies of the Los Angeles Amazons and my Honey lookin' fierce!!

We played at Hamline University which is a beautiful campus!! Which got me thinking - how does one learn of ALL the colleges out there? How can any high school senior really make a good choice, there are so many colleges out there!!!

Have I mentioned the Mall of America? Loved It!

Ok so we slack, but we are back.....

Baby is a changed dog since her surgery!! SInce her tummy doesn't hurt any more, she is taking over the house!! She is keeping Max in line and that is a good thing!!!

Since Baby was feeling better, we headed to Minnesota to play the Vixen. I have never been to Minnesota before and of course feel in love!! It was beautiful!! And need I say anything else other than - The Mall of America!!! OH My Goodness!! We did play football and won, 35 - 0!! So, the team has made the playoffs! Yeah for us!! Unfortunately, the league is down one team, so we actually have a bye this weekend and next weekend we play in Las Vegas!! That will be fun because my parents live there and they have never seen Honey play before!

This is the Mississippi River! How cool is that??
