Some Pics and a HUGE Thank you!

Last weekend we volunteered at Misericordia. This is a fantastic residential community for disabled persons. Our hope is to someday have a place for Cortney there. It is a happy, warm place with tons of caring people. Every Sept. they have their annual picnic. If you live in Illinois, you are probably familiar with this wonderful organization! Brian, my best friend Jennifer, and myself helped in the BINGO tent. We had our little aprons on and sold BINGO boards. It was a lot of fun! One of the local newscasters was there, Carol Maureen.
This is Kyle running his little Tic-Tac-Toe game.
This is Brian holding up his winning pull tickets. He won $50.00!!! WOOHOO!
This is my bestest friend in the whole world, Jennifer! She has stood beside me in everything I have done. She has a heart of gold, and I am so blessed to have her in my life!

I want to thank all of you for voting at the JustRite blog! I am so EXCITED to say, I won 3rd place! All of the other ladies are super talented and had wonderful projects, and I am honored to have competed with them!

Thank you for your visits to my little 'ole truly means the world to me!
