Well, today was
And I am telling you it was one HOT day!!!!! 90 on May 1st! I am worried about next weekend! eek. But, the day was amazing though hot. We had alot of donations for baked good, some by people I did not even know that had heard about it from one person or another! We ended up raising $164.70!!!!! That is PROFIT after expenses! GOD is flipping amazing! :) I am sooo thrilled that things went so well! :) And if that was not enough about 2 hours after we got home from the bake sale I got a call asking if I could do an overnight babysitting job and they would pick the kiddos up by 9 am so we can still go to a Church service so I was thrilled! That means a bit more money coming into the Jeremiah fund this week! :) It has been a good week of fundraising between the Plate Sale , today's bake Sale and now the babysitting :) Which is going wonderfully with the 2 youngest that I am keeping but the 2 older kids 3 and 5 are acting up while SUPPOSE to be going to sleep but overall a great night :)
So, here are a few shots from the Bake Sale today of silliness. It was a frantic morning, the banner is missing, we forgot the posterboard and the camera but Celeste got a few shots with her cell phone :) So here you go on that :
This is Ashley with one of my brownie cakes I made! :) She took it out of the round pan and ate it like this! LOL She is the owner of the store that hosted us!
my sweet Panda Boy :)
boredum causes strange behavior! LOL Bobby put his glasses on Noah! He looks so odd with them on to me!
Being so hot at one point when a friend was up there I jokingly said I should have brought an umbrella to keep the sun off, and her 12 year old Marissa runs to their van and gets me an umbrella :) So part of the time while they were there I had a bit of shade! At one point I had Noah and his buddy drake under it with me, but Noah kept running out. Did not understand the blessing of shade!
So, I am anxiously awaiting Fedex to arrive with our plane Tickets. I know they went out Thursday 3 day fedex so I am not sure if that will be Sunday or Monday! The bank issues continue as now there is way too much money in my account. I booked the hotel in Tainan and my balance went down appropriately, today it is back up more than it was to begin with!! I am one confused person. PRAYING they get this all figured out quickly. As for the flights we leave here on June 4th to drive 3 hours to dallas where we will fly from there to LA and then from La on to Taiwan. We will arrive in Taiwan on Sunday June 6th Taiwan time early am. Then will take the train down to Jeremiah's town :) We will have him in our arms June 7th at 10:30 am Taiwan Time! That will be 9:30 pm on June 6th Lousiana time! :) We will arrive back in US June 10th but not back to dallas till June 11th and then a 3 hour drive home! I have cried so many tears over the flying out of dallas rather than home thing. It kills me that Jeremiah will not a homecoming with folks at the airport :( It will bother me forever I just know it but it cant be helped. At this point we just need to get him home! The decision to fly out of dallas and not here was nto totally a money issue but a fligth issue, they could not find a flight from here that connected to the dallas to LA flight with seats on it! So we just drive and park our van at airport and go on.
I am so thankful that the Lord is providing ways for us to raise money! I am praying for more and more ways and I am REFUSING to give in to fear that would say it is impossible to raise enough in time! I WILL NOT, I CAN NOT even think that.
Lord I will put my trust IN YOU! GUIDE and direct me in the final leg of this adoption Journey, lead and guide us in all areas Lord!
Hang on little buddy! It is coming so soon! God's timing is perfect even when it doesnt feel that way! Catch my kisses in the wind and KNOW my love for you grows each second that we wait for you!
