T-Shirts and Hoodies for Christmas?

Hey guys, just a small little update.  Our buddy who did the final printing of our shirts and hoodies finished them up on Saturday while we were shooting a wedding in Morehead.  Wes and I started packing up the shirts at around 9:30pm on Sunday night, when we realized that we would never be able to get the big cozy hoodies into those small tyvek envelopes that fit the t-shirts so well.  So at about midnight, I headed over to trusty ol' Walmart and bought tons of boxes for the hoodies.  Wes went to bed at that point, and then I was up to 3:45am on Sunday night/Monday morning rolling, labeling, taping and packing up all the hoodies and t-shirts!  It took four trips into the post office from my car, with boxes piled high, a long line, and a really fast postal service worker, but we got them all in the mail.  The woman helping me seemed to think all the packages would get out to everyone by Christmas.  We shall see!  It was a good 10-15 minutes of talking about our adoption too.  Pretty great!

So hopefully, we'll see a Christmas miracle and all the shirts and hoodies will be delivered on time!  :)

By the way, we did our random drawing for our gift card giveaway!  Rachel from the Love With Abandon blog was the first winner as #54 in the list.  And Danielle, one of my former brides, was the second winner.  Yay!  I'm still waiting to hear back from Rachel, so if you know her, give her a shout out and let her know she's getting a $50 Visa gift card, and I need her address!

Rachel's winning ticket!
Danielle's winning ticket!

So there you have it!  And today or tomorrow, I'll send an update with the final numbers for our fundraiser!  It's gonna be good!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this fundraiser a HUGE success!!!  Woohoo!!!!!
