Final Muffin Tally

Again we are amazed at what God does with the idea of two young brothers, muffins, and a caring community!!  This year we made 743 muffins and sold almost all of them!! We weren’t even sure if it would be possible for us to get these muffins made this year and our Heavenly Father already knew He had made a way.

As always we enjoyed seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones too.  We are tired and ready for a bit of rest but already our minds are planning new flavors for next year! 😉  Thank you so much to all of you, near and far, who made this year such a fantastic success!!!!  You helped us to raise…

$1830.29…

one muffin at a time!!!!!!  Can you believe it?!?!  I am surprised and humbled every year at the outpouring of your support.  My heart overflows at the thought of our sons; who had this idea one morning over breakfast as a way to raise funds to adopt their baby brother (who is now home with us & more on the way)!!!  God has done a mighty work not just bringing the funds needed for our adoptions but in our family, in our time together, getting to serve you each Monday morning, delivering muffins to those in need, opening up adoption communication, connecting personally, and so very much more.  Thank you for being a part of incredible memories and the wonderful work God is doing!  Blessings to all of you!!!!

See you next year!

Singing in the Rain & Selling out Again

So for the first time in our 3 years of doing Muffin Mondays in May, it actually rained.

We had an awning that a kept us all dry and even kept the wonderful smells of muffins inside.It was so fantastic to have your support…even in the rain!! I was sure we would sell a lot less but instead we sold out!!!  Thank you!!  Your support has come at a perfect time with our Haiti adoption coming sooner than anticipated.  Our greatest joy of this past Muffin Monday was God bringing the rain.  You may think I’m crazy but truly it was the best, for a very specific reason.  My best friend, greatest supporter, & love of my life was with us for the very first time!!!!!!

The boys and I were thrilled to have Daddy with us for the first time!!!

Usually work keeps Daddy busy and he only gets to stop in to say hi; and maybe grab a muffin…if they haven’t sold out!  Since our business is working outside, Ryan wasn’t able to work so he came to be with us! You see God bringing the rain, meant God bringing my husband to be with us…my greatest joy!

This is our last Muffin Monday coming up!!!  We will not be selling Muffins on Memorial Day.  Here are the flavors that got the most requests & biggest reviews that we will be serving on Monday.  We are making the most muffins yet, so please come help us sell out with a bang this year!!!

Muffin Mondays in May!!!

IMG_5193We are so excited to start Muffin Mondays again!!!

We have such a great time seeing all of you each year and seeing new faces too!  The support and encouragement we have received from all of you as been priceless to each of us.  Thank you for caring so much for our family and for the orphans who need forever families!!!!  This year we have a precious, new little face for you to meet (if you haven’t already ;-))  As always none of our events are done in our own strength and wouldn’t happen if we didn’t have so much love and support from our friends and family!!!  Since we do have an extra little helper this year, we have gotten extra help from dear friends in getting your muffins “Fresh Baked and Served Warm” for you.  All of the muffins were also made with local eggs that were donated by a precious friend.  You can buy as many or as few as you would like for a donation, we do not have prices.  As always, you can pre-order and we will have them warm and ready for you to pick up.  With our Haiti adoption moving an entire year faster than we expected we have a lot of saving and fundraising to do!! So please come see us starting this Monday, Aaron will have his smile on and be ready to see you!

Now for the important part…

Carnival Wrap-Up

IMG_6131We had a wonderful night!!!  It was a blessing to see everyone and have you all meet Aaron!  Shiloh Valley Farms created a fun petting zoo that all of the kids thoroughly enjoyed…which confirmed for me and our sons that we would like to have goats! (We should be able to have 1 or 2 goats in Sheridan…just saying! 😉 )   Dinner was so delicious and the cotton candy & popcorn were tasty.  The Silent Auction was full of amazing gifts that so many of you are now able to enjoy!

IMG_6016 IMG_6148

There were many people working in the days leading up to the carnival, as well as that day, and through the night.  Fundraisers and events of this size do not happen and are not successful without others volunteering!!!  To all of you who have helped, we want to say a…

GIGANTIC

THANK YOU!!!!

Over 100 people came to celebrate Aaron’s adoption and to support our goal of reaching $5000.00.  Remember, we received a matching grant for $5000.00, so that made it easy to have a goal for the night!  After all the money from the evening was counted, we raised over…

$5,400.00!!!!!!!!

 

Thank you so very, very much to everyone who came and helped us reach this goal!!!!!!

This means we have over $10,000.00 in our adoption account and it also means that we have all the funds we need to finish paying for Aaron’s adoption.  It also means there is a little extra, so we have funds to pay for the next step in our Haiti Adoption!!!!

We have to admit that we weren’t sure how much we would raise.  God has called us to adoption and He is faithful.  We do not know how He is going to handle the details or even when but we do know He doesn’t leave us or forsake us! Our hope is in the Lord!!  Thank you for being a part of His work and joining Him in what He is doing!

We are so thankful & excited that along with all the Carnival Games, there will also be a small petting zoo!

As there are many sporting activities tomorrow night we know we may miss some of you but know that you can just stop in for a quick bite if that fits your schedule.

Silent Auction Items:

There is something for everyone….

A Western Tack Basket, Reading Baskets, BBQ Basket, Silk Trees & Plants, a Lamp with matching Candlesticks, and Hair & Skin Products.
