Garage Sale Fundraiser

Well, we did it! We made it through the massive garage sale weekend! We had beautiful weather, which was great! We opened Friday morning at 8, and we had people lining the end of our driveway waiting to shop at 7:30! It was like Black Friday at the Hanson house! Good thing Grant’s dad decided to rope off the end of the driveway, or they would have busted in while we were getting set up!

We had nonstop people from 7:30 am – 6:00 pm! It was absolutely nuts, but so awesome to have such a great turnout! I won’t mention how much we made, but lets just say that God is awesome and worked a financial miracle through a simple garage sale! We have a nice cushion in our adoption account now for upcoming expenses. I am amazed at how The Lord always provides, and blesses us beyond our expectations! Thank you all who helped in some way, from loaning us tables, to helping us set up, to donating awesome items that were too hard to pass up, to helping watch the kids and reading the same book over and over and over and over (Grandma Lu Ann, I’m talkin’ to you here!). We couldn’t have done it without your support!

So here are a few pics from the weekend. Here’s what we started with:

Yikes! It’s like our garage threw up into our driveway! I can’t believe we fit all that in there! You can’t really see it, but our garage is still packed with tables of stuff!

We didn’t even get a chance to get the kids dressed before the people came running in! Who cares, as long as we have donuts!

Done! And Grandpa’s happy!

We are tired now, but overwhelmed at how successful this weekend was! One step closer to bringing our kiddo home!
