A Taste of Honey 2010

We had a wonderful fun family night at FWCS this year. I can honestly say that this was the best 'A Taste of Honey' yet!! The 6 weeks leading up to the event were full of stress, exhaustion, frustration and dependence but the actual night was AWESOME. I know that there are people out there that spent time on their knees praying for me and for that I am humbled and incredibly thankful. I did not take one picture so thank you very much Wacotrib.com and Kacey for sharing these photos!
The program

The table decorations

The donated desserts

The performance.

Some things just never change but you know what, I love that kid more and more every day!

Proud mommy after the performance. Notice his eyes. They were glued to the Star Wars class basket the rest of the night!

The class baskets. ( I really never want to see cellophane again!)

Ryan and Mark didn't leave the auction area the rest of the night. Their persistence paid off because we are the proud owners of not one but two of these little jewels. Happy doesn't even begin to describe Ryan's reaction to winning the Star Wars basket!

The auction.
I really wish I had a picture of each and every 147 items that were donated. Thank you Waco stores and restaurants for supporting FWCS!

Some of my favorite guests

Our amazing MC, Ryan Long.

Because of him we were able to raise over $18,000 this year. That's about $5,000 more than last year and I really think his quick whit, humor and professionalism throughout the auction made a huge difference!

And finally my co-chairman Heather.

There is absolutely NO WAY that this fundraiser would have happened without my sweet beautiful friend. I probably called and texted her a million times throughout this month:-). THANK YOU HB for all your hard work and sacrifice preparing for this night. You are incredible under pressure and I am constantly amazed by you. I'm SO proud to be your friend. I'm also so thankful that you are invested in FWCS and willing to work crazy hours to help our school. Love that about you!

There is also another very important group of people I need to thank (I feel sorta like I'm giving an acceptance speech here but just go with it...) To Erica, Lauren, Katy, Tonya, Mom, Dad, Kacey, Caryn and Mark: thank you for helping me in the sleet and snow set up the auction the night before, for setting up desserts, calling local stores, picking up auction items, cleaning up and for being consistent and supportive people in my life. I am SO blessed!!!!!

I have that same performer, if it makes you feel any better! I am impressed by the auction! Now that I am as involved as I am in Justin's school auction, I now realize the LOAD on your shoulders! I know your mom, as well as the school, appreciated your efforts! Great for you for raising so much money! Good idea on donated desserts - might have to pass that along some day.....
