Preliminary Total and Request

So we have a "Preliminary Total" of $1,902 for this auction which is HUGE and we are so very thankful for everyone's help!!!!  This is going to put Brandon's family within just hundred dollars of being fully funded for their adoption.  :)  Every adoptive family knows how big that is and what a relief it is.  They will be able to raise the rest of the funds without worrying about it so much because of the generosity.  We'll have a "final total" later, since donors often add a few extra dollars when they round up as they donate.  Its just always amazing to me what God's people can do when they come together to change lives!!  I can't wait to post an update of him when he lands and he and Reed are HOME.  I will be at that airport homecoming personally and will be sure to update everyone since they live locally and they have to let me.  ;)  For now all I have is a picture of his big smile that I know he'd give if he knew all the love that has poured out for him this past seven days!




****I do have one request as I'm continuing to notify bidders, IF you did not email the auction with the name you were bidding under PLEASE go ahead and do so still.  It is much harder to try to track down the bidders without that email.  It slows down the process and makes it where I'm bouncing between Facebook and email lists and begging others if they know.  Some of these names I "know", but I "know" multiple people by that name and I'm trying to guess which one it may be.  If you know me, then you know I have a house full of kids, so you don't want me to be crazier, right?  ;) 

Thanks everyone!  <3

Breaking Free Brandon Auction is Up and Running!!!

Ok, so the "Breaking Free Brandon Auction" is up and running full force.  There could be some late additions, as I will still add any items that come in and I had heard we still had some other things coming....so we will see! 

There will be a linky tool coming, but it is nearly 3am and I am TIRED.  These kids will still go full force for April 1st so I have to get a little sleep.  Keith turns 8 today and Ahnja turns 13, so they will wake up ready to go! 

While we party, we need you to BID!  Make sure to check out the GOLDENDOODLE PUPPY that is here partying with us, because he would make a great addition to any family who wants a wonderful pet or dog to train as a service dog.  We got ours to train for our kids and are keeping one of the puppies for that purpose as well. 

Oh and guess what....Brandon's new Mommy is coming over this evening to hang out with us and bring me some Easter candy we ordered that will make our kids' Easter baskets great and help Brandon come home as well. 

So GO BID!

This GORGEOUS BOY is running about my house being spoiled immensely by my house full of children....  We have the father and mother (both Goldendoodles) here as our pets and both are amazing with our children.  He is doing well on housetraining with both puppy pads and going outdoors.  He has had two rounds of shots already, has been wormed regularly, comes with a collar, toy, blanket with scent, and his health register with his shots listed. 

He will NOT be mailed of course, but also can NOT be shipped by air.  He will need picked up at our home in southern Ohio.  Goldendoodles are very special dogs and can be extremely great for special needs children, families, and for service dogs.

Ukrainian Style Pysanky Easter Eggs #2

Ukrainian Style Pysanky Easter Eggs #2 






This is for one dozen white eggs in multi-color designs.

Pysanky are created using melted wax that is drawn on to the surface of the egg with a stylus. The egg is dipped in multiple dye baths with layers of wax being added between each color. When the wax is melted off the egg, the finished design appears.
 
The shells have been emptied through a small hole on the bottom. I think the traditional method is to leave them raw, and eventually they dry out, but this would be problematic for shipping! I will be able to do a dozen white eggs, so you may want to auction them as two separate sets, brown ones and white ones.
 
 
Thanks so much Britta!
