So Much to Be Thankful For

We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. We are so thankful for our family, our friends, for our health and the love that was shown during the "2nd Annual Ladybug Fundraiser" honoring Edie and benefiting The Bell Center. We had around 200 family and friends to join us at the beautiful Summer Classics Showroom in Pelham for a great time of food, fun music and fellowship. Unfortunately {once again} I got so caught up in the evening I neglected to take any photos. These are the only 3 that Scott managed to snap at the end of the night. {next year I vow to find someone to do a better job at this than I have for the past two years}

With or with out the proof of photos the event was just as successful as it was fun. We raised over $11,000 for The Bell Center during the night of the fundraiser! Everyone was wowed by the great silent auction items and we were wowed by every ones generosity. Not only through their giving but also from the wonderfully talented friends we have who donated items to be part of the silent auction. Over 25% of the items we had were hand made with love from many of these talented friends. We are so grateful for everything and everyone. You have no idea how much your love for our daughter and for the children at The Bell Center means to us. We love you all so much.

Although the party may be over the fundraising is not. We still have until February 20th to raise money for
The Bell Center for Early Intervention. So please if you have not already given we urge you to visit Edie's Firstgiving Page today and make a difference for these precious children. You can also pass on the link to anyone else who you feel would like to take part in this wonderful cause.
