I feel like it has been so long since I last posted when in reality it has only been a couple of weeks (then again, in blog world that sounds like an eternity). But, I do have a good reason for being silent for so long. Usually two or three times a year I clean out my kids' closets and list everything on ebay. I have been doing this since Emma was a baby and usually make pretty good money doing it. Generally I take the money that I make off ebay and "recycle" the money to buy the kids new school clothes for the new school year. This year I will be splitting the money and using only a small portion for new clothes and most of it to pay for the next installment that is due to our agency so our dossier can go to China. With the economy as it is right now, Matt not working a full 40 hours every week, and I have lost a few daycare jobs due to parents not going back to work in the fall, money is really tight right now.

So, I am asking you my family, friends, and bloggy friends to check out my auctions on EBAY
right now and if there is anything you are interested in bid, bid, bid. I have tons of name brand clothing for boys and girls ranging in sizes from 12-18 months all the way up to 14-16. So far I have Mylee's clothes on there but am working today on getting the rest. If there is something you see that you really, really want, let me know and we can work something out.

Thanks for taking the time to check things out and please do not hesitate to pass this info along to any other friends or family that may be interested in helping out.

I am hoping to post some 4th of July pictures by the end of the week.

Hey Mandi!

I will check it out for sure!

Praying Matt gets more hours and you get more children for your day care.

You're in my thoughts!

God bless,

I will head on over and check it out after I post my comment. Dawson is always in need of clothes and is in a size 14 right now...so hopefully I find some things that he'll enjoy, as I'd LOVE to support you in any way I can! We'll also be praying for God to provide through your jobs.

Blessings and Hugs,
