Chex mix and giveaway

I was contacted by MyBlogSpark and was asked if I wanted to do a Chex mix party change. Of course, I love Chex Mix. What I did was have a Chex mix party where we exchanged different Chex Mixes like you would do for a cookie swap. I made one with the wheat, corn and rice Chex Mix, pretzels and garlic crackers mixed with butter, poweded ranch dressing and worchester sauce and then toasted it. It was so good. We also had a buttered rum Chex Mix that tasted like Christmas, if you know what I mean. Then there was  caramel, chocolate made with the honey nut and cinammin Chex. I never knew there were so many differents kinds of Chex Mix. Oh and we made ours into a party at the park. The weather was beautiful and the kids played while we ate. Love being outside.

If you want to have your own Chex Mix Party Change, just enter my giveaway and you will receive five different boxes of Chex cereal, some really cute containers, recipes for different flavors and a $20 gift card to purchase the extras. To enter just answer this question: Do you shop on Black Friday and why?
The giveaway will be open until Friday November 4 at midnight. I'll try to post the winner Saturday.
Hope you win and have as much fun as we did.

Chex Party Mix-Change product and information were provided by Chex through MyBlogSpark.

Fall events

October is such a busy month for our family but we love it because most of it involves family time. Jenny and Lana had a booth at War Eagle this year and did great. It was so much fun to go up there and see them doing so well plus I love going to fairs like this in the fall. My daughter and daughter-in-law went up there with me on two separate days. We love it. And Kacee really loves the turkey legs.
Then we have Noah's birthday and so far we have gone to Chucky Cheese. The boys love going there as I'm sure most kids do.
Next weekend is Noah's birthday party. Superheros!!.Going to be fun. Then just before Halloween, we have Hee Haw at the church. Such a fun time for everyone with food, music and trick or treating for the little kids. October is a good time to kick off the holiday season.

Traveling Tuesdays

I haven't participated in Traveling Tuesdays with whistlestop cooking in a long time but I am going to today. For the last two years we have "traveled" to my daughter's over in Oklahoma for Disney on Ice. The boys really enjoy seeing "Hot Dog" which is Mickey Mouse, the other Disney characters and of course the Toy Story characters. Noah especially gets excited to see "Hot Dog". He calls Mickey Mouse that because of the song on the new Mickey Mouse Clubhous cartoons. Noah and Jonah's expressions are priceless. Can't wait to take them to Disney World at Christmas this year.

Pumpkin Patch

I love the fall and all the activities we usually have going on this time of year. We went to a great pumpkin patch today with our grandsons. They have so much fun, getting to pet pigs and goats, go on a hayride and pet horses, then getting to pick out their own pumpkins. And this year is especially good because Gary was able to walk around the farm and even carry Noah on his shoulders which he couldn't do before he had his heart procedure just a few short weeks ago. God is so good to us and has blessed us again with good health. We are a very blessed family.

Together at last!

A while back I posted a picture of a desk I had repainted. Now I want to show you the chair my sister recovered and repainted to go with this desk. It turned out wonderfully. We repainted and recovered chair and desk all for under $100. It is now sitting in our booth at the antique mall waiting for me to bring it back home since my daughter has decided she wants to buy it.
