Sammi’s Excitement

A while back, on a Saturday, I went to do the family shopping at HEB.  Kraft Foods was there doing little contests and give-aways.  Two people asked the kids if they wanted to try an Oreo eating contest.  The kids, of course, wanted to.  I filled out the releases and they unscrewed Oreos, ate the filling, ate the cookies, then drank the milk.  Sammi won of the three girls.  Yea – what fun, now let’s finish our shopping.  We all forgot about it until UPS delivered a package to our house.  Sammi was the winner for the whole store!  She won 4 tickets to the Astros Game and a chance to compete against winners from the other stores.  What a surprise!  Sammi chose to take Grandpa Ball, Nathan, and Daddy.  The Selims came into town, so they got to come too!  They had dinner at McDonald’s, enjoyed the game (we won!), and the fireworks after the game.  Sammi competed in the Oreo contest.  She didn’t win – but what a fun night!  Thank you Kraft Foods!
