It's hot out, so I made sure to have plenty of beverages to quench their thirsts. In addition to lemonade (pink, of course) we had water. Making your own labels is super easy and really "cutes" up a plastic water bottle! The verse is from Matthew 25:36 - 40. I needed clothes and you clothed me...whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers, you did for me.
No party would be complete with out some sweet treats. Strawberry cupcakes and shortbread with dark chocolate dollops.
Jelly Bellies are always a hit, and you can get them in just about any color!
Not pictured is the corn dip, yummy hummus and the dozens of baby quiche that I consumed.
It was so exciting to see the pile of jammies just growing! People want to give, they really do, even in these tough economic times.
Boy sleepers. Love the superman - it even came with a cape!
Girl jammies. Look at all that pink! You can't see it well, but there is a pair towards the top of the photo that has little yellow bees on them. Super cute! Of course I also love the pink pairs with sleeping cats on them! They were all so precious and soft.
Hubs high tailed it out of there before the girls started arriving. But after he left I found this adorable pair of Transformer pajamas that he left for us. Isn't he the sweetest? Just another one of the kazillion reasons I love this man!
I found these polka dotted boxes at Papersource. (my fave stationary store) I also just printed some pink labels, slapped on some hot pink grosgrain ribbon and filled them with addictive dark chocolate covered almonds. Mmm.
I'm so thankful for my amazingly generous friends. What a blessing their generosity will be to these children! We were able to collect 27 pairs of brand new pajamas for Jonathan's House! After everyone left, I prayed over the heaps of pajamas. I pray these children feel loved and safe as they put on their new pajamas and that God will continue to put people in their lives to protect them and nurture them. Thank you Jonathan's House for doing what you do!
