September 24th, Another Big Day!!!

The coolest thing about today was that Madison and Lindsey hit their first goal of $100,000 to St. Jude!  With the help of thousands of donations, several business meetings, matching gifts, and several high-dollar haircuts, the "number" on Madison's fundraising page currently says $101,572.36 and it also says "Goal Met!"  The best thing about this is that even though it's on Madison's page, it's from a combined effort of Madison and Lindsey and they both are super excited!  The very next thing they said was that they've got to get Lindsey's page up there too; Lindsey's fundraising page says $25,872.18 and I'm not going to be shocked when they get that other $74, 127.90 to make both of their pages say "Goal Met!"  My daughters are amazing and they've got one thing on their mind...Helping their little brother beat Cancer the only way they know how other than praying!

Ingram made another trip up to Craig's office for another haircut; this seems to be a weekly event and we're loving it!  Today, though, there was a first; Ingram actually shaved Dave Garson's head on the trading floor.  All of the other haircuts had been cut in a "standing room only" kind of room with around 20ish people lingering around to watch.  I'm not sure how many people were actually on the trading floor, but Ingram didn't at all get shy about having such an audience.  At one point, Ingram wasn't even looking at Dave's head as he was shaving it; he's such a pro!

The big event of the evening was Chili's Create-A-Pepper Night for St. Jude!  We went in shifts because Madison had soccer practice and Lindsey couldn't "wait another minute to eat!"  Ingram was just happy that I didn't make him take his nap and I was doing everything I could to keep him awake and happy.  At one point it was a losing battle, but in the end he made it all the way till 8:30pm from waking up at 7am.  Just like Thursday night with our school's Chili's night, it was packed!!  We saw several people we knew and enjoyed coloring Peppers while we waited for our food.  We also ordered for Craig and Madison so that once soccer was over, their food would be ready.  We all had fun taking pictures of our Peppers and posting them on Facebook while we were still there.  We also had a surprise visit from Pops (who was in town) and he ate with us too.  G-Mommy went to Chili's for lunch in Katy, Texas and Aunt Leigh went in for dinner also in Katy.  My sister even chose to have her birthday dinner at Chili's in Jackson Tennessee and another family we've grown to love, the Zubiller's from California, went to Chili's also in Ingram's honor.  We couldn't be more excited about all the funds that St. Jude will receive from just one day of business!  Once we find out a total, I'll be sure to share it.  Also, I'd love to post as many pictures of folks at Chili's from Create-A-Pepper Night so email them and I'll show them off!
