Whole Lotta Bakin' Goin' On!

We started rising money for The Walk so late this year that we decided to do a bake sale to help get our numbers up.  It just so happened that we needed to have a yard sale too, so we did both this Saturday and it was a huge success!
 I baked for 2 days straight!!!!!  Like literally my oven didn't turn off almost all day for TWO days!  It was insanity.  I took the last batch of cookies out of the oven a little after 11:30 PM Friday night!!!  My kitchen smelled like fall heaven!!!  It was shear torture for the kids to be surrounded w/ cookies and pumpkin bread and chex mix and chocolate covered marshmallows and monster munch!!!!  Goodies were everywhere and I didn't let them have any!!!

We got up at 5:30 Saturday morning (after going to bed around 1) to set up.  Suzannah was up b/f the sun to set up her stand.
 She stood out there till closing time!  By 3 she was glad it was over.  We sold everything but one bag of granola, some of the ginger cookies and 2 pumpkin muffins!!  She raised $360!!!!!!!  We are so blessed to have such great friends.  Jessi came out early to help set up and slice pumpkin bread and keep me sane.  ;)  My mom came to help out w/ the littles and clean my disaster of a kitchen!!!  So many friends came out just to buy from Suz and give her donations.We are very blessed!!!  Thank you all.  :)

It was a LOT of work, but it paid off in the end.  Suzannah is proud of the money she made to take to the Walk.  She was able to talk to people about diabetes.  And she felt so special to have so many people donate.  Yay for bake sales.  Yay for fundraisers.  And yay for generous donations :)
