I just wanted to take a minute and share about today...
A co-worker of mine and I had a great idea a few weeks ago when we were taking turns making lunch runs to local restaurants... We decided to attempt a Staff luncheon.... we checked the local ads, and figured out a menu based on sale items, to allow for the most profit.. we got permission and today had the first of several Adoption Fundraiser Luncheons at my school. We served BBQ Sandwiches, baked beans, chips, homemade chocolate cake and blackberry cobbler. It was ALL homemade and I must say DELICIOUS!!! We put up signs that said "let us make your lunch.... while also helping an orphan find their forever family!" We made $225.00 profit... PROFIT!!!!!!
It was a huge success and we are going to do this about every other week. I am so blessed and fortunate to work with such an amazingly supportive and wonderful staff and administration!
I want to thank Janet for all her hard work and for the help.... you are the best and your encouragement and motivation pushes me to know that I can do it with your help! Thank you... thank you.. thank you!!!!
I also want to thank my mom who made the desserts.... Mother, you are amazing and thank you so much for you love, support, prayers and absolute unwavering love to me and your future grandbabies in Kaz.... I can't wait for them to see and know what an awesome Nana they have!!!!
I'll post some pictures of the dinner... and of my girls tonight (Halloween)! Phil and I were the honored chauffeur of Miss America - 2008 and an adorable lion cub tonight... it was a blast... and man o man did Bailey look pretty! She was in the evening gown portion of the competition.... Brook on the other hand didn't really even want to wear a costume... Daddy convinced her that she had to wear one to get the candy... she happily obliged then... :-)
