A Husker Kind of Day


[These two cuties had other commitments and couldn't
help with our volunteer work this time.]

Last Saturday, the town was hopping!
It was a Husker Football "Wear Red Around the World" Saturday!

[Carson & Kamree]

Some time ago, my friend Jodee and I were chatting about doing some volunteer work with our kiddos. Just so happens that in addition to it being a Husker football Saturday, it was "Huskers Helping the Homeless" Saturday. Maddy was going to do it along with us, but a birthday party changed her plans and she couldn't make it this year.


[Jodee and Carson]


We found our assigned location close to campus and thought it was kind of tough spot -- away from most of the pedestrian traffic going to the game. However, little Miss Kamree was such a cutie-pie holding out the money jugs and using her itty-bitty voice, that we pulled in some cash fairly quickly!! She was so funny and everyone loved her!

No one could resist that cute little face!


And, we were happy to be able to help the Matt Talbot Kitchen with their very worthwhile cause and assist their important work in our community.

I seriously want to live in your town. I love everything you and Jodee post about how you spend your time. What a fabulous place to raise your children. I'm green with envy...(even though we are in the midst of Philly RED PHever here as well!)

Looks like you all had a great day. What perfect weather for it too. I saw you on TV last night in Mr.Tennis' ads. He's got my vote!
