7 Quick Takes Friday




--- 1 ---

Bidding Malcolm Home was a HUGE success! We raised close to $1,500 for the Smiths in just a weekend! I am still recovering and making sure all gets paid and shipped, but it's going awesome! I am so happy with how well it did. We had some beautiful items from some wonderful donors, and I am so thankful!! People even came out of the woodwork and offered some more prizes after it was already started. It was all just really wonderful. God is so good.

We celebrated my little one's birthday this week and it was great! We went swimming at a public pool and then to Chuck E. Cheese's for dinner. It was so fun. All of us had a blast and the kids were pooped. Works for me!

Yes, I cleaned up after her.

My oldest daughter's birthday is next and I am hoping I can do a 4th of July type theme for her, since it's so close to the 4th. I reeeeeally want to make her these:

I am considering making some Waldorf dolls to auction off next. I need to be prepared in case Nico gets a grant! Which, I hear they are working on! (don't squee yet, Kara!)  :)

This cracks me up.

I went to an orthopedic surgeon the other day to see what the heck is wrong with my knee. He said it's likely a medial meniscus tear, and ordered an MRI. Who knows if I can even afford that nonsense, so I might not have it done. My aunt swears by prolo injections, so I will probably try those first. But, I watched a YouTube of the injection process and OMGoshhhhhhh...... I almost passed out. I'm not a wuss when it comes to needles, either. But... omg. That is all.

I'm going to steal Leila's idea and always make my #7 about an orphan. Even though I almost always talk about Nico anyway, I still want to show some of the others here. 

This sweetie has a huge grant. I've posted about her before. But she's still waiting. She has almost $24,000 in her grant. She has Down syndrome. She is living in an institution. A bad one. She needs the love of a family. Spread the word. She is such an angel.

    1. Before I realized we didn't qualify for the USCIS guidelines, I inquired about her. She was one of the first sweeties I fell in love with on RR. :(
