Successful breakfast!

Saturday was our pancake breakfast benefit and it was a great success! Now I haven't actually counted it all but we brought in around $1300, which I think is just fantastic! It will help cover a few expenses, plus we can give a good donation to the Neural Tube Defect Research Fund. I also plan on making a donation to Sufficient Grace Ministries and the Clinton County Women's Center.

Here are a few pics from the breakfast:

Yum, yum! Eat up!

Me and my friend Jen. We've been friends since the 2nd grade. :)

Thank you to everyone who came to the breakfast and to those who didn't come but gave us a donation. We very much appreciate it and I'm sure those organizations who will receive donations do too! Also, thank you to those who volunteered to help us out for the breakfast! Those who worked in the kitchen did a great job at keeping those pancakes coming!!

That day I also went to a few places and picked up some stuff for some future giveaways. (Are you exicted!?) I also stopped by a place and picked up something special to do a raffle-type giveaway to benefit Sufficient Grace Ministries. I am hoping that my idea will actually go as well as I would like it to. I'll be doing that soon once I figure out all the details.

Breakfast was great! We will be sure to get our money to your in-laws since the only type of payment we had was our debit car... how embarassing but I didn't even think about it.
It was nice to see all you guys and Kyndra is just adorable. I am glad she liked Molly-Kate's little cookies. She seems like quite the snacker just like Miss Molly-Kate.
Take Care and hope to see you guys again soon.
