Last weekend Gavin's school had it's School Carnival Fundraiser. It was an awesome day. Gavin goes to school where I used to teach and I must admit it was much nicer going as a parent than as a teacher who gets squirt at with water guns by all the students. :) They had games, raffle, silent auction, food, bounce houses, and all that good stuff. The kids got their hair sprayed colors and Ellie's nails were painted, it was awesome. I am a big fan of supporting the school in the silent auction. But imagine my surprise when I bid on 4 baskets 15 minutes before it ended, and finding out I won 3 of the 4 i bid on. Seriously?!?! It was all good though. The kids were SUPER excited. Gavin really wanted the "Nerf" basket and Ellie the "Arts and Crafts." And I got a "Date Night" basket for Frank and I. :) Then when it was raffle time, Gavin won one of the 15 things auctioned-an erupting volcano. He was stoked! We came home with A WHOLE LOTTA LOOT... Good times, good times. Now, where to put it all??
