OUR GARAGE RUNETH OVER

People are amazing! We have had so many things donated for the garage sale and there is so much more coming that our garage is starting to look like a hoarder's paradise. Lauren loves when we open the door to the garage because there are so many things to explore and carry around (to other piles to make our lives super easy and less organized). In all honesty, I've been doing a little pre-sale shopping and I will be the first person putting money in the jar going to Children's Hospital. There is some good stuff there!

There are also a few things that are too special to just put out at the garage sale for garage sale prices. One of my brother, Cameron's, co-workers from a past job has incredibly generously given us two tickets to the Seattle Seahawks. As the dad of two little girls, 3 years and 6 months old, he was moved by Lauren's story and felt that this was something that he could do to help us out. He also gave a signed Joe Sakic Right to Play jersey. Wow! Have I mentioned that people are amazing?!

Another one of Cameron's friends and her mom made two quilts and matching pillows to include in the sale. They have been quilting up a storm just for the event. My godson is almost 4 months old and I'm still trying to get his quilt done! Hmmm, maybe I should be buying one of these quilts....

Anyways, these items are way too special to be placed in a garage sale with the other items (but have I mentioned how amazing some of these other items are? A SLR camera, Xbox, ceramic cat on a ceramic pillow, ice skates, golf clubs, furniture, Baby Einstein DVDs, luggage, and the list goes on and on and on and on...), so we have decided that they will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Today, the Seattle Seahawks tickets have gone up for bid. They are for the game on November 3rd, 2013 against the Buccaneers, Section 204, Row J. To place your bid, simply click here, on our new Facebook Arneill Auction page, and add your bid to the comments. Remember, every single cent is going straight to Children's Hospital to help them build a new, and badly needed, heart clinic so that they can continue to care for Lauren and so many others like her.
