Pictures and a little News

Here are a few more pictures I took yesterday.

This is the cotton field with the levee in the background. I lived right next to the levee all through high school until I married Todd in 1983. I thought this was such a pretty picture of it. I love it when they grow cotton in that field. Much prettier than soy beans, or corn if you ask me.

This is a barge going down the river. Or is that up the river?? Todd loves watching the barges. My nephew works on one and I always wonder if it is him when we see one going by. Sometimes I holler out "Hey Adam!" I know, I know. :)

Now for some news!

My fundraiser is over that I blogged about here. Danny and Calley were very appeciative. I was very appreciative as well for all who participated by purchasing tupperware, or sharing the link. A very big THANK YOU to Nikki Glenn for doing this fundraiser and giving her profit to help the newest little Reed.

I said I was going to do a gift card giveaway to someone who made a purchase. So, now that it was all over and done with, tonight I got a winner. The winner was Diane Rice! She is such a sweet lady who has great faith in God, a wonderful mom, and person in general. She has been through a battle with cancer and handled it with much grace. I was glad she was the winner. She has proven once again that she is a great and honorable lady. She sent me a message after finding out that she had won and asked me to send the amount of the gift card to Danny and Calley as an added donation! Isn't that great. THANK YOU DIANE! May God bless you abundantly above all that you could ask or think! If you would like to learn more about Diane you can check out her blog - Life As A Survivor!

So here are the totals!
We raised just over $120 with the Tupperware sales. Diane donated her gift card which raised that total to just over $140. AND I had one HUGE blessing of $100 donation from one wonderful soul who chose not to order tupperware but donate instead. That brings our Tupperware total to just over $240 !!

Again thank you all who participated. I was blessed to be able to help in this small way. I know that Danny and Calley appreciate it; and I for one, CAN'T WAIT to meet little Miss Reed.
