Celebration Day

Monday, May 23, 2016



























First off I must apologize for the late post. The party was on Saturday May 14 and it is now the 23. I really have tried to make the time to at least post the pictures, but I wanted to elaborate on the fun. Unfortunately the day after the party my kiddos got sick. Yes, all 3! So I hope you can understand when I say I have been a bit low on energy by the end of the day. Thank you to those who follow along on social media and have wished us a speedy recovery. We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers. A week later we are just starting to shake the fevers.

So without further ado I am so so happy to say we hit our fundraiser goal!!!!!!!


To be honest we were so relieved that most of our guests understood our cause and what this really meant for us. The thought of being able to help a child without the means for clubfoot treatment is such a blessing. We are truly humbled by this experience and grateful for all those who came and gave to such a great cause.

Thank you

You all helped a child with Clubfoot receive treatment. May God bless you all.

Josiah really enjoyed himself that day. He had his first cupcake, which he devoured! He enjoyed watching the older kids play games. He even received some great gifts. Among those gifts were his first pair of actual shoes, which we purchased from Sweet N Swag. He has worn them about 4 times since that day and they have managed to stay on his feet, which is a miracle because he takes everything off! We love them!

Overall the party was great, the guests were great and the memories are held so dearly to my heart. On this day we wanted to collect memories not things. We wanted to emphasize how much this year of Josiah's life has taught us to be grateful. To give back. To care about others needs before our own. To show love to someone we have not met by giving them the gift of walking. I am so proud to say we accomplished all of these on this day and it will forever be in my heart.
