Pay It Forward

I really am amazed and blessed at the help we've received from the community, family, friends and strangers! Thank you, merci, gracias...

I know one day I will be able to pay it forward and help out somebody, maybe it will be you? Looking forward to that day!

It's getting closer and closer by the second according to my countdown clock! I'm not sure if that thing is giving me more anxiety or helping me remember when our event is? All of the details are coming together and I am excited, nervous and stressed all rolled into the pit of my stomach! My biggest fear is that no one will come! Does anyone know that this carnival/auction is even happening?

A few prayer requests:
  • The main road in front of the church is all torn up to pieces! Please pray that people that want to come will be able to find it and there will not be any major construction going on the day of our event!

  • that people will come:)

  • The weather will be nice for our event!


  • My husband knows a couple that puts on a carnival themed event every year. They are letting us borrow whatever we need!!! Thank you

  • My friends and family are helping me plan this event!

  • We already have had some monetary donations come in and we are amazed!

Notice in the sidebar I have added a list of events taking place during the carnival and some of the auction items!

Do you like to buy online?

Today beginning at 4:00pm EST two shops on Etsy will be holding a mini-fundraiser for Alaina, with all the proceeds going directly to her! This picture just shows off some of the goodies that will be up for sale! So if you like to buy online, love handmade goodies that no one else has then you need to go visit these adorable shops and start adding to that cart of yours!
The shops you can find all of the goodies at are Little Bit Funky and Jane Says these two girls are super friendly and take paypal too:)

Thank you...

Hi All, I have been trying lately to put on this blog a meter to keep everyone up to date on how much money we have raised for Alaina. I'm having a tough time finding one:) To date we have raised $1840, Thank you!

An update on her surgery...everything is going as planned and we have the date, we just booked our hotel and I just made an appointment with her pediatrician for a history and physical, plus she needs some lab work done! Since we have confirmed that we are having the surgery done, the amounts are confirmed...for the actual surgery it is about $8700, for her to be in the hospital it is about $3500 and for the anesthesiologist it is $875. So we estimated a little low. We trust that God will provide for our needs and we are so thankful for every one's support thus far!!!
