Lasterday

I love this word my little Wyatt uses. Kind of makes sense, doesn't it? ;) We got home lasterday from a huge family reunion that was really just quite amazing. It was the 65th annual family reunion of the Way family. This is my hubby's great grandfather's last name. There were over 100 of us there, all camping in tents and rv's. It was wonderful. The reunion is funded fully by the Family Night Auction. Now that was fun! Whoever wants to donates items to be auctioned off. There were new items, vintage items and my favorite...hand crafted arts made by family members. These included birdhouses, pottery, homemade brew, jerky, aprons, scarves, jewelry, tote bags and blankets. I made some greeting cards, paper and chipboard purse and an altered journal. All together we raised just right under $4000! This pays for the entire campground and much of the food for the 4 1/2 day event. What a great family! We're so honored to be a part of it! ♥
