It's been a good weekend. Yesterday was the first Saturday in a long time that we just stayed home. I did get up early yesterday morning to run into Rochester to pick up a donation for our fundraiser. Stopped at the farmer's market for some rhubarb and was home by 7:45am. Spent the day baking (zucchini bread and strawberry rhubarb crisp), got to spend some quality time with Maia, yep... good day!
Church this morning was nice - our pastor is on vacation so our service was lead by Cabin Fever. They are an awesome bluegrass band who are all members of our church. Afterwards was our adoption fundraiser. There was a potluck dinner with great food, a bake sale and silent auction. It was an AMAZING event and we are truly humbled by the outpouring of love and support that we received from our church family (as well as other friends and family who attended). We feel so blessed to be part of such a great group! God is reminding us that He provides and that bringing Matthew home is part of His plan!
We took two cameras with to make sure that we took pictures and unfortunately... didn't get either one of them out of the bag. Would have loved to have pictures of the event. A couple of cool things... Mark's sister Betsy made a beautiful cake for us (and it tasted wonderful!!) and my friend Amy came to the fundraiser. We have known each other since 3rd or 4th grade, haven't seen each other in probably 20 years. It was wonderful to see her and such a special blessing that she made the trip!! Didn't get to visit quite as much as I would have liked, but hopefully we will be able to get together again soon.
And now, going to take advantage of an early night for Maia (she was pretty wiped out by the end of the day) and make it an early night for me, too.
Thanks to all who shared our day with us!
