Oh, Spaghetti!

This weekend was AMAZING! The spaghetti dinner was a huge success. We had been praying that God would do big things and God is faithful! We weren't sure how much help we were going to have, but that was not a problem. 
We had so many friends volunteer I couldn't believe it. 


Saturday our house church was there serving food like crazy. We actually ran out of cooked spaghetti at one point. We had no idea how many people would show up to support us and eat some yummy spaghetti and Olive Garden salad.  Sunday we had friends from house church, youth, and many of the Rogers friends there to help us. It was amazing how many people came through to grab lunch. We were so thankful. God is good.

Isaac was so excited to help. He also loved chatting with Ms. Rita. She was so patient with him. :)

We were so moved that our friends sacrificed their evening to help us out! We are so blessed. 

Ben was our chef for the weekend. He kept the kitchen running. By Sunday we had a system down and we went through a ton of food. Tami and I knew what we were doing when we bought extra spaghetti and sauce. Even if our hubbies didn't believe us. They actually had to make a run after Saturday to get more food since we ran out. 

Even Isaac was ready to help. I think I may keep in mind that he now does dishes. 
Amaya really enjoyed the markers.
We were so blessed by the turn out of friends to serve, eat, and support us. We had so much fun joining with the Rogers. And like I said we prayed for God to do big things and did he ever. Each family raised over $1,300! EACH FAMILY! I mean, God is so faithful. I am blown away by how he answers prayers. 
We are so thankful to all who came out and supported our adoptions. We are blessed beyond measure to have the church family, friends, and most of all a God who loved us so much that he adopted us into his family. I so look forward to more understanding my relationship with my heavenly daddy as we adopt our daughter into our earthly family.
