Now that the auction is over...
Whew...these past couple of weeks have flown by! But now that the Hermiston FFA Alumni Auction is over, life is a little back to normal. We had such a successful event, and raised over $28,000!!! It is not lost on me that we live in a community that donates items worth that amount, and then shows up to buy it all back. A huge thank you the businesses & individuals who supported the auction, and the many alumni members who donated time and efforts to help make it function!
We had a great crew this year; Lisa, Ray, Sheila, Chuck W. and Chuck M helped with donations; Kylie handled the treasurer role along with mailings and raffles, Melissa & Erin did a beautiful job with decorations, Shanna & Hannah handled check out like champs, Charles loaded our IT programming, Spoo & Mel smoke the tri tips, Debbie was game to help with anything, and many others helped in the kitchen, sell tickets, organize desserts and more! I am so thankful to all who showed up and put in volunteer hours!
A special thank you to my mom who came over for the day and watched the boys. Clint had to head to California to AI, and so I really appreciated her help!
And she is going to kill me for posting this picture of her with wet hair - but I just love it. She is so good with the boys, and Saturday braved making pancakes with Cal. :)
Other than trying to catch up on sleep (I took a 2.5 hour nap on Sunday with the boys after the auction!) we're just doing the normal things like going to work & Nana's, and trying to keep the cows fed and watered.
It's been cold here; so we're playing inside a lot or keeping the boys in the car while I fill tanks.
And since Clint is gone; and Cal thinks getting up at 4:30 am is normal after daylight savings, we've been spending a majority of the mornings snuggling in my bed while I try to snooze for a few more minutes until my alarm goes off at 5:30. :)
So that's a little look at life lately - hope you are living the dream too!
