First go 'round

It's kind of hectic around here trying to get things ready for Cora (me, for one), still taking care of the kids (thank goodness for help!), and trying to get a movie together about the benefit, as well as some other stuff I'll fill you in on later. ;)

Well, here is the first round of pictures from the benefit. To say it was a huge success would be an understatement. The word that keeps rising to the surface to describe the day is "overwhelmed." We are completely overwhelmed! There were so many people there on Saturday, a ton of whom we don't even know. We had friends show up we haven't seen in years and others who came from quite a distance just to help! I can't even tell you how many volunteers there were, from close friends to barely acquaintances. All I can say is we are blessed and loved, and we truly feel it and appreciate it. The tears came easily as I sat and watched the outpouring of love and generosity of so many. The auctions were a huge success and a lot of fun. Kelvin and I were just a tiny bit bummed we couldn't bid on some of the incredibly cool items there! ;) It was a hoot to watch though. The bands were awesome, and Emma loved every minute they played. The whole day was completely delightful! Carleigh and Luke had a very good time too. I think Luke jumped in the moonwalk almost the whole day. Carleigh's class made beaded bracelets and sold them for donations at the benefit. They raised over $500!!

There will be more to share. Here is an article that was in our local paper on Sunday. I know there were a lot of people taking pictures, and I will post them as soon as I can. Thank you again for your prayers and support for Emma and our family! We love you. Don't forget to pause the music on the blog by scrolling down to the bottom of the page.
