Benefit Dinner

Video from Wayman Studio

Let me start by saying...I have a lot of time on my hands right now as we have been admitted to the hospital since Wednesday, hence my catching up on London's blog.

Next, let me tell you that this wonderful video catches only a glimpse of one of the most amazing nights of my life. It was as special to me as our wedding day... so many people rallied to support us, particularly little Lulu. She was not in attendance because it was during her long hospital stay October-November but wouldn't have been there anyways because of the hundreds of people that would not have been able to hold themselves back from clobbering her with love (& germs). But her spirit was ever so present.

Jon Schmidt put on an amazing piano performance, the food was great and the silent auction- a wonderful success. Every little detail planned with great love. The flowers were beautiful, the table settings lovely and the hundreds of little notes that were tied to the tree are so encouraging to open each day. I wish everyone I know and love could have attended but with huge families and many close friends our seating was limited. So the next best thing I can do is share a smidge of this night with you via the Internet..Julia, Kathryn, Chantell and Leslie did an unbelievable job spearheading and organizing this event with the help of MANY. Too many to start naming- but to you all and everyone in attendance, thank-you and our deepest appreciation.

The post/video above was made and shown at the benefit dinner...hope you enjoy!
