Mary Kay Proceeds to benefit Adoption!

Today is the last day for our giveaway to help the Henry family bring their daughters home!  Thank you to everyone who has helped!  I you haven’t had a chance to see all the great give-away items or make your donation yet, please visit their website by clicking here.

I also need to announce that my good friend, Theresa, has launched a Mary Kay sales event to help bring Gracie and her sister home!

Through midnight TODAY, She will donate 100% of the proceeds of any Mary Kay sales directly to World Links International Adoption Agency, in the name of the Henry Family.

After Friday, she will donate 50% of her profit through the end of July!

You can order through her website: Browse the website or download the latest catalog to your smartphone. MaryKay has award winning skincare products, amazing fragrances, a well-loved men’s line, and exciting color cosmetics including a wide range of foundation choices such as mineral powder and age-fighting liquid foundation made in two different formulas to suit unique skin types. Everything is backed with a full guarantee, even if it’s just a matter of the color not quite working for you. Theresa will even pay your shipping!

Our weekend, in pictures:

Nothing beats a new pair of jammies to start off a vacation … except, maybe THREE new pairs of matching dinosaur jammies!  Rooaaaar!

We got to spend some time with cousin Harvey and meet baby Edward for the first time.  Edward is so very precious!  It was wonderful to be able to see and hold the little guy.  Aaron’s parents now have 5 grandsons.  Here are the oldest 4:

Harvey and Jesse are only 1 week apart in age, and they make quite the comical pair:

Daddy got to take his Father’s Day present for a spin:  All the boys enjoyed it, although the younger crowd made it clear that they liked Bompa’s “fast boat” better. 

Matthew and Jesse both signed “fast boat” over and over, and Micah put a “motorboat” on his Christmas list.  (I’m not sure Santa will be able to fit it in his sleigh, though!)

… and just because there are rarely any pictures of me:

The boys’ favorite spot:  Endless rocks to toss into the lake!

. . .

Don’t forget … our fundraiser to help bring Gracie home is still going on.  Why is it so easy to spend hundreds on fireworks that are gone in an hour, and so hard to give $10 to bring an orphan home forever?  There’s still time to win the Kindle, jewelry, gift cards, and more!
