The one with 120 cupcakes

Monday, April 15, 2013
Whew. What a weekend it has been. We did a lot of laying around and resting saturday evening and sunday and this is why. Several of the young-married lifegroups at church combined to put together a garage sale and cupcake (and muffin and coffee) sale saturday morning. 

Rivertree has been having a big push throughout the month of April to raise money for SixtyFeet, a ministry for imprisoned children in Uganda. So we spent the last week pulling stuff from our houses to sell, organizing and pricing and baking lots and lots of cupcakes. 

We got to get rid of a bunch of stuff we don't use anymore and make money for Africa. It was a win-win.

There was lots of stuff! Traffic was a little slow getting started, but once it did we had a steady stream all morning long.

The kiddos had a great time hanging out in the shade of the garage.

Perry loves "playing" with other kids. He thinks they are hilarious.

I wish I had taken a picture of the cupcakes before we started selling them. I think we started with about 120 (s'mores, salted chocolate caramel, vanilla, carrot, strawberry, and key lime...not your everyday boxed cupcakes), plus a whole bunch of muffins.

We sold all but 12. Here is the carnage in the kitchen after the sale.

The kids did a great job helping us sell cupcakes. I mean who can say no to this little guy in his Cupcake Kids onesie? Despite this picture, I promise we didn't keep him out in the sun much. : )

It turned out awesome. We were able to raise $1300 for SixtyFeet in one morning. And it was such a fun time getting to hang out with our extended lifegroup family. It was a long day though. We met before 6 am and finished up loading up what didn't sell and taking it to the Care Center in New Hope about 2 pm. So we were pretty much worthless the rest of the weekend.
