This was how we spent last Saturday. First the bunk beds had to be disassembled at our neighbor's house (thank you dear friends for giving us the bunk beds), reassembled, painted, and repainted! Just look at how good they turned out! We had lots of great helpers and although we were all very tired at the day's end, this mama was extremely happy with the day's accomplishments! Ethan's navy bedcap for the top bunk (a comforter designed with fitted corners at the bottom to stay on the bunk bed) should be arriving today. Ethan and Hudson's room is done! Hudson's growth chart has been hung, clothes are in his closet, toys and books are on the shelves. Now, we just need Hudson!
A quick reminder about our tee shirts that we have been selling as a fundraiser through Adoption Bug. . .
This weekend will be the last time to order a tee shirt and support our adoption. We will be closig our online store so that we can use that money for our adoption expenses. Thank you to everyone who has purchased a tee or 2 (Jennifer and Sharon - thanks friends!) So far we have raised about $125 through this fundraiser. Overall, we have raised over $5500 through our various fundraising events!
