(can you tell how hot I was in all that fur? The red cheeks are a dead giveway.)
These are the few snapshots I took of the big event. I was too busy to take any pictures of the food stations, the snowflake ice sculpture, the awesome outdoor decorative display or the guests. Abby's Army was marching in high gear last night! (my boss and the board members call my volunteers "Abby's Army"). Hopefully the student newspaper can send me more snapshots this week. It was a success, well received and fun. After eighteen hours yesterday and twelve hours on Friday, I barely got out of the car last night when I arrived home. I literally had to hold on to the wall in the garage to make it inside. I am exhausted and glad I can now focus on other little things, like my 5 year wedding anniversary this Friday!
Thanks to all of you who sent text messages yesterday, left blog comments and sent emails wishing me well, while lifting me up in prayer. I promise that I felt each little prayer...thanks so much!
P.S. The puppy sold for $500 to a man who had not informed his wife he was bidding on it!
