Garage Sale

So, our first yard sale to raise funds for our adoption happened today! Though I barely have the energy to form a complete thought, here is the outcome. We had 8 different families donate items for our sale and we made a total of $370 (after a $25 ad in the paper)!!!! We are so excited and blessed. Thank you to everyone who donated and who prayer for us today. So here are some pictures of today that I took while it was slow.

Here is a picture of the mess before it was all out and organized.
Organized and waiting for customers!
The children "discussing" prices. :)

And, the girls ran a lemonade and cooke sale once it warmed up, I forgot to get a picture :( I'm sure the will do it at the next sale.... A big thanks to their older buddies Ralyn and Amory who did all the hard work for the little stand and who were also a huge help to the yard sale!
