Bluegrass Extravaganza = HUGE SUCCESS!!!

Saturday was a very long and tiring day for not only us, but our friends and families as well. The morning began with Krispy Kreme doughnut sales in Abbeville and CF. These yummy boxes of friend dough were donated by our dear friend Rena Rhodes! Total sales were somewhere around $650!!! WHOOHOO!!!

Immediately following the sales, Curt, myself, Brandi, Addam, Thomas, Teddi, Emmi & Mar Mar loaded tables and chairs and then set up the Livery stable for the BIG event!! The plate sales were to begin at 5:30, but at 4:45 we had a couple come in the Livery and hand us a $100, they didn't even say a word. We kept saying thank you, but they smiled and walked down the road. What a blessing! The Livery was packed, at times there was standing room only! We ran out of food and had to turn people away! Our total for the day was somewhere around $3,500!!!! We are so thankful for all the amazing people in our lives who made this event such a huge success. Carrie, Nanny and Mom made delicious cakes. Brandi, April, Austin, Addam and Brittaney all served the food. The bands were amazing! My dad helped us clean up!!! God places people in your life for a purpose and I am so thankful to have each of these people in my life!!!! It was a great day, a blessed day!!! We are closer than ever to bringing our sweet baby home!

My friends Heather who helped pull the pork the night before the event, she is pretty fantastic!
