Dinner and an Auction

Nick and I are going to be hosting a dinner and silent auction at our house next weekend to raise some more money for our adoption!  We are busy planning away and collecting items to auction off.  Since we are officially "active" with our agency, our baby could be here anytime.  So, we want to make sure we have the funds to be able to say yes to that baby.  That's where the dinner comes in.  We are going to have a suggested donation at the door. The amount is still to be determined, depending on whether we can get the food donated or not.  Then, everyone will be welcome to enjoy dinner (we do know it will be good), dessert, and a fun evening of dancing and hanging out.  Our friend Wes is a DJ and offered to DJ for the evening, so there will be plenty of entertainment.  We will have a silent auction that people can participate in if they would like to.

Some of our friends and family have been so generous to donate items for us to auction.  Here are some of the items that we will be auctioning off:
>> One Month Crossfit Membership
>> Customized Cake from Caramel Cup
>> Some Aidie's Hideaway goodies
>> A Beach Themed Basket
>> A Trader Joe's Basket
>> Some Twirpy Woods Items
>> A Basket of Children's Chapter Books
>> A Basket of Picture Books
>> A Baby Themed Basket
>> Rip Curl Clothing and Hats
>> Stella and Dot Necklace
>> Some iKnit2 Goodies
>> Trader Joe's Basket
>> A Pair of Adirondack Chairs made by Nick

We have a couple other themed baskets that have been started, but still need more items to be added to them.  The different themes are gardening, baby, coffee, juicing, and kid's baking stuff. If you are interested in adding items to these baskets (big or small), or if you would like to put together a basket of your own, or if you have something else you'd like to donate, we would be so appreciative.  Just let me know, and we can coordinate everything. Thank you to everyone who has already given so generously to us and to this event.  We are so excited to see what God does on this night!

If you need more info about the night, just let me know, and I will be happy to email you!
