I have to say that I almost wished I had entered the pageant - you should have seen the prize table (I should have taken a few photos!).
As for the mantle, this is my Hallmark Nostalgic Houses collection. I have been collecting this ornament series since 1984 and have every ornament and special edition issued. This year, a commentartive snow globe was created, which has every ornament in the collection on it. All I have to do is add this year's ornament!

One tired son and one great father and husband (you can't even imagine what pageant husbands go through for their wives :-) The Happy Family after Angie's big win!
The Jersey Connection and me. Susan, Mrs New Jersey United States, and some Mrs. New Jersey United States contestants (Danielle, Kimberly, and Mary) came to support Angela.
Another photo in front of the Christmas Tree!
Former Mrs. Delaware America 2005 (and now Director of Mrs. Delaware America) and Mrs. Delaware America 2007.
What a night! I am so tired and yet still so excited. The competition was very tight. All of the contestants did a wonderful job and the pageant was a pleasure to watch. It was organized and the emcees were terrific. Stage, lighting, and production were all wonderful.

Tis the season. Soon-to-be-Hubby did a terrific job - he purchased the outdoor decorations after we both consulted a few internet websites. As always, Target wins!!! We need to purchase a few more trees. So far though, at night, these pieces look wonderful. There are also icicle lights on the house, but we need to buy more to complete the entire house.
Below is our nine foot Christmas tree - just purchased today! It comes pre-lit (praise the Lord). Soon-to-be-Hubby put it together, now it is my turn to start the fluffing and decorating process.

Beaver Stadium. We had box seats, and this is an area where people with box seats can sit outside. We were right above the student "white-out" section.

This past weekend, Angela and I competed in the Heavenly Angels Pageant. The director of this pageant, Grace James, is an incredible woman. She runs a fun and fair pageant.
Angela walked away with the Beauty title in her division and I won the overall pageant (my combined scores were higher than anyone else in the pageant). Angela and I were both thrilled with the prizes that we won!!
Here are some photos from the event.

Friday Night - Late arrival due to my being in Family Court pratically all day. Soon to be Hubby had planned to propose at night - but with a 10PM arrival, we were both pretty tired. Heck - I was still in my suit from court.
Enjoying my ring at lunch - he proposed about fourty minutes before this photo.
Me by one of the waterfalls on the Skytop Property. There were so beautiful.
