A Taste of Honey

Thank you so much for your prayers:) I know that it was only through the Lord's provision that A Taste of Honey actually happened!!! It went GREAT. We had a lot of help the 48 hours leading up to Friday night, so a huge thank you to all of you who helped Heather and I pull this off:) It was a really fun time for the whole family and we were able to raise over $13,000 for the school. FWCS is such an amazing school and I feel extremely blessed that Ryan gets to attend school there every day. Here are some pictures of the event.
Decorations

All of the desserts were donated from local businesses. We had over 25 different restaurants and caterers provide delicious treats for everyone. The chocolate fountain was a hit!


The Silent Auction set up. We were so fortunate to have 136 items to auction off to the highest bidder this year. It was a lot of work but it was fun.

Our art teacher, Jennifer Barnett, took a class picture of each class dressed in "cowboy gear" and they turned out absolutely precious.

Each teacher also created a teacher/student activity that you could bid on. So cute!!!

Here are the class baskets. Each class was assigned a different theme and students brought items to fill each basket. The teachers were in charge of organizing this and they turned out awesome!

I wish I had an audio recording of the class performances, they were simply priceless. The kids were singing their little hearts out for the Lord!

My favorite student! Ryan did not sing, but he did occasionally move his mouth. He said that he was "talking the words" not singing. Where does he get this stuff?

My sisters were both here and helped a TON! Sorry Caryn I don't have a picture of you to post. But I can tell you that the Waco Trib was in attendance so go to www.wacotrib.com and click on slide show to see a great picture of Caryn and StaceyIII. :-)

550 plus in attendance


And here is my favorite picture (minus the blood-shot eyes and the obvious need for a hair highlight). Heather and I literally worked so hard on this event that our bones hurt on Saturday. She is such a great friend and there is no way that I could have done this without you, so THANK YOU!!! There were several disasters that went along with planning this party and she was just so calm and cool under pressure. It was really amazing to watch. Thanks for being so supportive of me and everything you do for the school. Love you!
