Cute Beaded Angels

I had a great afternoon...creating beaded angels!
Aren't they cute?
They're made with safety pins and a variety of plastic beads in various shapes.
Fun, fun, fun!

State Fair of Texas - 2012

Maxey and I took Eugenia, our new friend from China, to the State Fair of Texas yesterday. We had a delightful time!

Of course, everyone has to have their picture made with Big Tex!

 And a Fletcher's Corny Dog is a requirement!

 Eugenia enjoyed little Beaurigard...

 ...and Elsie!
The gentleman in the photo is Elsie's helper.
He welcomed Eugenia to America!!

I think it was a good thing the bees were behind glass.

Both "kids" enjoyed the petting zoo!


 This one has MY hairstyle!

 Of course we had to eat a turkey leg!!!

 Supper at the fair!!!!

Our First Mid-Autum Festival - 2012 at UTD

Maxey and I attended the Mid-Autum Festival
at The University of Texas at Dallas last Sunday night.
It was a delightful evening!

We were treated like royalty!!

We were the guests of our new Chinese friend, Eugenia Bae. We have been introduced to her through the International Student Friendship Partner Program.

This is our first experience like this, but it has really been a blessing already!!

Isn't this program wonderful?!?

Here are a few photos of Eugenia in action!
