This year, the kids have been challenged again, this time with a tougher goal of $3500. Once again they'll get the chance to slime Pastor Ryan, and we even have a few extra surprises in mind too.
Our own kids decided last year that they were going to make a few crafts to sell in Nana's garage during our large family feast. I am a good Southern Baptist girl who was raised to believe fundraising for the church was a no no, but I knew Ryan's aunts, uncles, and cousins would not be offended. So while I didn't encourage it, I did give them the okay. It was such a roaring success, that they decided to do it again and yesterday they opened up shop as soon as they had finished their yeast rolls and taters.
They were very excited to collect $62.75 cents for Lottie Moon and they're hoping that it will go a long way toward insuring that missionaries can go and daddy gets slimed!
Abby and Lizzy ready for business.
My favorite of their craftings. Ryan and Abby made these adorable tissue holders that Abby found on Martha Stewart's website.
