Teresa held a 31 Party for us, and she so kindly held it at her home even though she was undergoing a big home improvement project. She was a wonderful host with great snacks including my favorite Eckerts chips and salsa =) People were able to make orders online which made it nice for those who were not able to come to her house. This was her first party ever, and I think it was a great success! Baby Woodson was also able to get a diaper bag from the party which was nice even though daddy wants to use it as a camera bag. She also donated one of the 31 bags for the raffle at the Zumbathon and worked the raffle table. Teresa has gone far beyond anything we could ever ask for; we have been so blessed by her and can't wait for Baby W to meet her!
Myrah held a Zumbathon at Spin City Skate Center and did an amazing job. Not only did she choreograph 20 something dances, she found other Zumba instructors to come and help lead, she got the skating rink for us for free, and she promoted it like crazy. Thank you so much for taking so much for your little free time and investing it in our family, Myrah. Baby W is blessed to have you in his/her life.
There are also others who helped with these fundraisers- Aunt Leah and Uncle Jon came on Jon's birthday to collect tickets and also purchased some of the items in the raffle bag, Jose' Alvarez killed it as the DJ and also helped us carry some extremely heavy risers for the stage, Grandpa Woodson helped us haul the risers back, Sarah Goins and Tara Davis did an amazing job leading some of the dances, and Myrah's family helped do other things at the skating rink. Thank you to Spin City Skating Center for allowing us to use their venue. THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!
We wanted to acknowledge everything they did for us, and we pray that they are all extremely blessed for blessing us. We are so thankful to have people in our lives who see our vision and our purpose behind this adoption.
WE ALSO WANT TO GIVE A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO PARTICIPATED IN THESE EVENTS! Without you, these events would not have been successful. We are excited about some upcoming fundraisers. More details to follow in upcoming post.
