Garage Sale

I knew there had to be a reason why it had been 6 years since our last garage sale, they are a TON of work! Last weekend we had "Sadie's Sale" our adoption fundraiser sale. We had been working on it for months and still didn't get everything out and into the sale that we wanted to. I had such a hard time going through the boys clothes for the sale, I still had every single piece of clothing from the day Landon was born until now, maybe just a little too sentimental??? There were so many outfits that I could think back to where we were, or a certain picture that they were wearing the clothes in, and the newborn stuff, how were they ever that little :( I will admit I kept a tub full of stuff I just couldn't bear to part with!

I had a goal in my head that I really wanted to hit, but admittedly it seemed out of our reach. By the time we counted the totals up on Saturday we hit my goal almost exactly on the dot! $3000 going towards helping us pay the costs to bring Sadie home! All that hard work certainly paid off!

I have to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated items for our sale, those of you who let us borrow your tables, and the people who stopped by to help us out, we couldn't have done it without you! We are also so grateful that so many people came out to shop at our sale, I don't think there was ever a moment in those 2 days that we didn't have someone there shopping!

See I am not exaggerating that we never let go of any of the boys clothing!

The other half of the garage before we spread alot of the stuff out on tables outside

This is after the sale is over, I never had time to take before pictures of the outside, but this is VERY thinned out.
