We all rode with Val to the ice rink.(After stopping at Starbucks of course!) L-R Katie, Matt, Valerie, Luke, and Me.
We were on the blue team! Yay, go blue team! Don't we look vicious?
Here we have green team!
The teams are good sized but were much bigger by the end of the night! It was a well attended event and fun was had by all, even if we will all have bruises on our knees, butts and wrists for the next week! (Yep, I fell a lot.)
I finally got to wear my funny hat with earflaps and braid ties. One of the girls there had a cool one with a yarn Mohawk. Of course we had to take a picture. (I'm on a roll taking pictures of/with stranger or new people. We saw my Dad's stranger twin at Starbucks today and said "hi" for the record! Making friends!) There's a knit version of her hat that I would like to try to make! You can see it here.
Harper sisters take on the green team! (Our eyes turn red when we get really competitive. Oh wait maybe it was because we were up WAY past our bedtime!)

Here you can see the runners coming down the road!In the bottom left corner you can see the cups lined up on the table! I was still filling cups to keep the table stocked. Being a person holding out water is risky, especially with the runners, because they don't want to lose momentum by slowing down to get the water they sort of grab and throw hoping some of the water lands in their mouths. Other runners just take a gulp, and spit it back out! Yep, filling cups was safe!
Another cool part about Sunday was that I got to see my friends Randy and Luke running! Yay! You guys are troopers!

Its made out of bags I recieved while shopping in Idaho!
This is a bag made out of SaveMart bags. I tied a fold at each end of the mouth of the bag to help the bag keep it's shape and better hold whats in it!
The bags are pretty thick and squishy acting as a good protector for the things in it. I thought I'd try this out by making a sleeve bag for my laptop. This one may be a little tight but it works well and this would be good for quick and simple transport of my laptop! I used blue and white bags from Paul's (the grocery store we went to in McCall, Idaho and for the stripe I used a few, okay more like five, of the Target bags I'm saving for Christa. Sorry! It needed a stripe!
Thanks to Cindy and my mom for saving bags for me! If you have an inclination to save bags feel free to donate to the cause! If you live in an area that has interesting, or pleasantly colored grocery store bags I'd love it if you save them for me! I've been missing the green bags(included in my first attempt) from Moscow, Idaho!

Here is my dad maybe 5 years ago with slightly darker hair.(He often wears his boots, and also has a hat, I couldn't find the picture with the boots.)
And here is the man we saw at Starbucks!
Worthy of a double take?
