ready, set, GIVE AWAY!

that's right! we're going to give away one of our fundraiser shirts!

If this is your first time ever stopping by "texas petes"...welcome!
we are the dockery family and are in the process of our first adoption. we are a missionary family that lives on the border of el paso, tx and mexico...building homes for the poor in Juarez, Mexico. we have two biological daughters who bring tons of JOY to our lives, and we can hardly wait to bring another child into our family. we are adopting from the country of ethiopia.  we would LOVE for you to consider donating to our adoption fund by following the directions over there on the right side of the blog. 
we have the adult shirt, which is pictured above, as well as a childrens version:
there are a few ways to enter this give away.  first, become a follower of our blog and then leave us a comment telling us that you did.  you can also blog or facebook about this give away and once again, let us know by commenting.  If you do both of these...you'll get in the pot 3 times! 
thanks for stopping by!  we'll post the winner on Saturday!
