A Great Cause


Spring has sprung around here, which means it's time for the second annual neighborhood charity carnival!

Three families on our street hosted the carnival this year, raising money for the homeless. Hot dogs, chips, face painting, a bean bag toss and all manner of games were available, all for a small admittance cost.

8 of 8 really surprised me. He was waayyyyy into the face painting booth....and he sat so, so still while he had both cheeks adorned. I need to remember to offer him some face painting when he needs to wind down...


Be sure and look for his whopper of a shiner...his brother opened a door into 8 of 8's face. Yea. Ouch.

Not to be outdone, 7 of 8 wanted her face painted up as well...


and the finished product...


It was amazing how many folks showed up for the event. The organizers were able to raise double of their original goal! And it's such a beautiful thing to see kids working hard to help the community, to make a difference. Congratulations to them!
