The 2nd Annual Ladybug Fundraiser!

We were truly honored to be a part of The 2nd Annual Ladybug Fundraiser!

The Ladybug Fundraiser benefits The Bell Center for Early Intervention and was created, organized and managed by Scott and Michelle Shunnarah.

Scott and Michelle are an amazingly beautiful couple who are now dedicating their lives to raising their beautiful daughter Edie and to raising awareness of Down Syndrome.

I truly am in awe of what Scott and Michelle do for the charitable organizations in which they are a part of.
Everything about the evening was wonderful and we enjoyed meeting so many new people and spending time with friends.
Although Chris and I felt a bit guilty for outbidding a fellow Bell Center couple, we walked away with the winning bid for a mini getaway!

Our hearts were yearning for the trips to Jackson Hole and Colorado Springs, but we are just not there yet.

We just can't leave the kids and go on a vacation of that nature.

We have all the time in the world for that when the kids are older.

We were just thrilled at the prospect of winning the getaway and making a contribution towards The Bell Center in honor of Edie Shunnarah!
We are truly blessed to be surrounded with people who dedicate their lives to showing this world the beautiful journey of raising a child with special needs.
Thank you Scott and Michelle for your amazing dedication and for the honor of allowing us to be a part of this event!

Here is Monkey and Patti having a little chat!
Patti was a huge help tonight in keeping Monkey occupied so that I could mingle and take part in the silent auction.
Addie met new friends as well and we had to do our best to keep her from squishing them - sorry about that Allie!
Look at that mischievous little grin!!!!
