Great entertainment!

WOW!!! I had the most amazing day ever! I was a VIP guest at the filming of Extreme Makeover Home Edition. It was the hottest day ever and I was a complete sweaty mess after just an hour - - I can't even begin to imagine how all of the workers spent hours (day after day) in the heat. I was treated like royalty and was met by the crowd of spectators with such enthusiasm. I was signing autographs left and right (hard hats, shirts, arms - - you name it!) It was a ton of fun! Around 4:00 pm CBH Homes handed over the keys to Ty Pennington. I can't even begin to express what a wonderful experience it was to watch the community come together to support this wonderful family. The amount of donations are staggering and the committment by so many is just plain AWESOME!!! After spending the afternoon at the new house, I ran back home (30 minutes) showered, changed clothes and headed back to Middleton for the huge community fundraiser. Over 2,000 people showed up for food, dancing, silent auctions and entertainment. All of the proceeds go to the Stockdale family. I signed autograph cards until I ran out - - was interviewed by channel 7 - - and yes, got a few great photos! I am very blessed to have had the opportunity to associate with such great people today! I LOVE IDAHO!!!!
