Last night was Relay For Life and the debut of the trees! I want to caution you this will be very picture heavy.
I tried to get as many different views of the tree so you could all see your ornaments. If you don't see your individual ornament, don't fret. It was there. It was just hard to get pics of all 150+ ornaments. Let's just say the tree was fuller than full.
With no further ado, here we go:
I didn't raise as much money as I had hoped at Relay but we still have until Thanksgiving to sell these tickets and remember, I am pulling out all the stops!
Relay was AMAZING! If you wondered why we did this, I think this picture of some of the luminarias says it all:
And remember our little hero MaKenzie? Here are some lighted luminarias for her:
And one final picture after we moved the trees last night to our donor center where they will be on display:
Once again thank you all for your support. And this blog won't be going away. I will keep you updated on the final money raised as it comes in.
And, keep your eye out! I have THREE MORE RELAYS in the spring and there will be stitching opportunities for them.
All in all, EVERYONE who saw the trees were in awe. I had so much fun telling them about each and everyone of you. I told some of your stories, passed along messages of hope.
Thank you for giving so much hope to so many!
It's Been a Looooong Time
