We had a great night at Katy’s Gifts on Thursday. It was great to see so many sweet faces out to support our family and adoption of Molly Kate. We feel very blessed by so many people. The owners of Katy’s, Charlie and Sherilyn, provided us with such a great opportunity and then so many of our friends showed up to help make it a success. We are so thankful for those that helped us that night as well as all of those people who came out to show us support and love.
The boys hosted a bake sale outside of the store and sold homemade baked goods to raise money for their baby sister. Carter stood there the entire 3 hours making sales. He was so proud of the money he earned to help Molly Kate. Seth and Ethan joined him at times but it was hard for them to stand still. 🙂 We also sold Uganda beads, earrings, and t-shirts outside. I had friends outside helping with the bake sale as well as friends inside helping with the finger foods. Our families helped us take care of our kids so that we could enjoy the night and talk to everyone that came out. It was definitely a group effort!
Thanks to my friend, Ashley, for all the great pictures!
