We did it!!

The fundraiser went swimmingly!  It was a wonderful day, and there are so many people to thank!!  Thank you everyone that put so much time, effort, and love into this event!  It couldn't have been more wonderful!!  The support was great!  I was so busy running here and there I didn't get any pictures so I will borrow some from my sweet sister Niki's blog! Thank you Niki for all you did, I love you!  Spencer did a wonderful job (along with Boyd and a few others) manning the ticket booth!  Thank you Spencer, you are the love of my life and I couldn't do anything without you!
Everything looked so professional, many thanks to Debbie Brenner!  Your dedication and creativity did not go unnoticed and was so appreciated!
This booth was my favorite by far!  These wonderful ladies put so much effort into a rather challenging thing!  Stephanie will be so proud when she gets to see this! Thank you Jody, Tauna and Ashley!

Maybe this was my favorite booth showing the Nie movie. Thank you Jodee and Andy Dillard you created such a beautiful tribute to Stephanie and Christian.  I love, it but it gets hard for me to watch aswell!

Thank you doesn't seem like to enough to say to Reachel, she put countless hours into organizing the whole event and the silent auction!  She is the most on top of things lady I have ever met.  The beautiful Nielson children are lucky and blessed to have an incredible godmother like her!  Stephanie and Christian have heavenly friends in this wonderful couple!

We were honored to have some of Stephanie and Christians families  in attendance!  We were so happy to see all of you!

A huge thank you to Kristin and Blissful living for making this event even possible!  Your kindness has not gone unnoticed, again thank you!

Thank you to Lori Crum, Alli Heywood, and the whole Heywood clan, Becky Mecham, Ruth Sullivan, Becky Hermasillo, The Worthen Ladies, Kristen Hon, Julie Lara, the Harvey bunch, the Curtis family, Caprece Rogers, Tina and their sisters, Katherine Ashcroft, Dixie Marshall, Ronda, Emily Dial, The Lazona Ward, Dan Speakman, Bishop Brown,   The Adams, The Millers, Gloria, Holly Webster and her family, Mountain View NHS, and all the volunteers.  Thank you for all the donations as well.  (please let me know if I have left out any names I want you all to be thanked!)

It turned out really good. It was so cute and I think everyone had a good time. Way to good. The Nielsons are so lucky to have you and your family as friends. (I'm sure you feel the same about them.)

The Carnival was great! You guys did an amazing job! I'm sorry I didn't spend more time there. But, it was neat to see all these people bound together by their love for the Nielson family. Linds,You are such an amazing, loving, caring person and those that are blessed to be your friends are so very lucky(I include myself in that statment.....very,VERY Lucky).
I was actually thinking about that box I made you. was that for your birthday in 9th grade or you 16th? or... I can't remember when I gave it to you, but I remember making it and wanting to give you something to show you how much I love you and how grateful I am for, love, love you!
