Tea Party Update
With just ten seats left out of 140 for Christi's Teaparty we asked Eric to stop the ticket sales part of the donation site. If someone would still like to make a donation to Christi's Memorial Fund, that would be great; however, we won't be selling any more tickets on-line. (We don't want to oversell.) For those who ordered tickets on line, they just need to show up at noon at the Mohawk Country Club on Christi's tenth birthday - Saturday, May 12th. Those names were automatically generated to a list!
The Mohawk Golf Club generously donated a round of golf for four which will be put in the auction. Yesterday after school Shayla and I went to the library and borrowed "Alice in Wonderland" and we watched it last night. I also received an amazing package at school. Coming from a sweet quilter in Kentucky who had been following Christi's blog, we received an incredible tea party quilt. It's simply stunning! (Thanks, Kim!) I'll try to get a picture posted of it soon - along with some old birthday pictures of Miss Christi. It's so hard, being this time of year, and not being in the midst of planning something to do with her birthday. We are so grateful for everyone's love and support with this memorial tea party. It has really, really helped us with our grieving. Thank you!
The "Proper Party" ladies - Kristen and Kami, have done a fabulous job and I think everything is going to flow very nicely. Our friends from the Fremont Ballet School are not able to dance due to scheduling conflicts; however, Christi and Shayla's ballet and jazz teacher - Megan from Dance Unlimited, and possibly another teacher will be performing along with the Seneca East Show Choir! We're so blessed to have so many generous people working hard to make this event, held in Christi's memory, a success! THANK YOU!
I think the only sad part of the tea party will be when they ask everyone to sing "Happy Birthday" to Christi and to sing it really loud so she can hear it in Heaven. Of course, it reminds me of her birthday party when our family sang to her and she covered her ears pretending she didn't like it. Of course, check out that smile! I think she loved it!
