A friend from church invited Mom and me to go see some tapestries from South America that were on display in a near by town.  They were so detailed! It was amazing all the work these women put into them, and each one told a story about the maker. Something about their life, or something they were hoping for etc.

PRC's Pie Auction

Dozens of pies were donated by many people to raise money for the Pregnancy Resource Center. 
 Amy and I had fun being the photographers for the event!
One of the three tables of pies.

There was a pie contest...
....and a winner!

Pies ready to be auctioned off!

The lady in charge of the kitchen. =)

Delicious pie to eat while bidding!

The couple that came up with the idea, several years ago, to have a pie auction before Thanksgiving.

The auctioneer.  
I asked him if I could take his picture, and this is how he posed himself. =)
He was such fun!

Seth and Sarah's Wedding Reception!

Our friend Sarah got married about a month ago out in western South Dakota.  We were not able to attend the wedding, but went to their MN reception at Iron Wood Springs Christian Ranch.  I remember camping there when I was little and going to a week of  summer camp as well one year. They have added a few buildings, but some of it still looked familiar!
The reception was held in one of the new buildings overlooking the river.  Such a pretty place!

Sarah and Seth!

 All the food except for one cake was gluten free, which was really nice for Amy!
 Root Beer, Cream Soda, Orange Soda, pop corn, nuts, M&Ms, s'mores ready to go....they had so many yummy treats out for the guests!

 Amy and I went on a wagon ride with some of the other guests. =)
(These two pictures are from my phone.)

November Crowded House!

This month's event was hosted by the K family from church. Their house was beautifully decorated for Christmas and looked like it should have been featured in a magazine! We had around 50 people attend and the evening was such fun! =)

Hot chocolate or tea anyone?

The menu:
Gourmet Mac and Cheese
Cranberry Cashew Romaine Salad
Apple Dumplings with ice cream
Hot Chocolate with Homemade Marshmallows

Mr. K started a bonfire outside and this is my attempt to get a picture through the window since I didn't want to take my camera out into the cold! =D

Amy and I are so thankful for Elisa and Emily who helped us out in the kitchen with food prep, and for Travis, Ted, and Mikayla who came back to the church kitchen with us to clean up!

Ladies About Town

 We went to our Aunt's house last Saturday - Dad spent the day replacing a faucet and doing some electrical work for her, and we ladies went shopping together!!  =)
Pastries at Whole Foods!

 I LOVE these roses they had for sale at WF!

 Funny shirt in a store we stopped in!

A large collection of large rocks.

We picked up Ana after lunch and went to a thrift store, Clothes Mentor, Jamba Juice, and a couple other clothing stores who's names I can not remember.
It was a fun day!!
