Big Weekend!

I'm sorry for the lack of posting!  Between the hurricane, entertaining children stuck inside for three days, Halloween, and packing for our weekend away, it's been put on the back burner!

Tomorrow is the big day--the 30th Anniversary Gala for the Ronald McDonald House of Baltimore!  We're very excited to be speaking and have been practicing our script for a couple of weeks now.  We are staying in Baltimore for the weekend because of rehearsals tonight and tomorrow morning.

We've all got our fancy outfits to wear, and I took the opportunity to get a very fun new hair cut and use a gift card to get my nails done.  (By the way, having a man do your nails while he is munching on some kind of seed/nut thing and lacing his fingers through yours while only speaking to you in Korean is in no way relaxing.  It was one of the most awkward experiences of my life.)

I promise lots and lots of pictures--and hopefully a video--of our exciting adventure.  It will most definitely be an experience we will not forget.  I'm so thankful for the opportunity to share Abby's story and talk about how much we love the Ronald McDonald House!!

Side Note:  I have a TON of soda tabs to take to the House, thanks to so many of you who collect for us!  They are going to be very excited!  If you are local and would like to collect them, it is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to help the House.  Just get them to us somehow and we'll take them up.  In case you don't know, the House uses the money they receive from turning in the tabs to pay for gas for the shuttle to take families to and from the hospitals.  It is a vital and appreciated service for the families, so thanks for saving them for us!
