"holly moses" is all i can say to describe the last two weeks! bloggers give back was a HUGE success because of all of your generosity. i never knew how much work it would be to start up an online auction. but in the end we realized the worth of all the hours and hours we dedicated! once we get everything squared away, we will be giving a check to alan and donna. this is the true meaning of Christmas and has brought such great joy. giving of our time and talents to those in need is the greatest gift we can give. a giant thanks to jenna rammell, emily roche, and aubry bennion. i can't say how much these girls have put into this auction and for someone they've never met. the four of us now know the ins and outs of starting a non-profit organization. we have much to learn and hope our future auction will be even more of a success.
as for the Christmas hustle and bustle, we are alive and well! running around getting all the last-minuet items checked off our list. and can i just tell you how much i LOVE the snow. i woke up this morning and was as excited as a two year old. i got steele revved up to go over to "gama and papa's" as steele says. my dad builds a snow slide every year and steele is going to be the first one down it.
more pictures to come of our Christmas tree hunt and the fun holiday happenings.
