Here are some of our favorite pictures from this year’s MCC sale.  Be sure to also see all of the photos in the slide show at the bottom of the blog post!

Our good friends, Blake & Sarah Lehr, were able to join us for a third year.  They are always a blast to have around.  How many new years cookies can that guy eat??

The little old lady (grandma) always catches a nap during the sale.  There is something about the sound of auctioneers that can lull anyone to sleep!

Kara was able to get some “baby time” from Doug and Elizabeth Maury’s youngest one.  He didn’t last long.

Nicolas’ mom was able to entertain children with her clown costume during the kid’s auction.  Dare I say some were probably scared?  I know I was!

Grandpa taking a break from making popcorn to supervise the inside booth.

Every year we attend the MCC Kansas relief sale in Hutchinson, KS. . . This year we tied it to our declutter project and doubled our number of items reduced in just one weekend. . . More pictures and stories to follow.  If you want to check it out for yourself, visit Kansas MCC Sale and click on the Sale results or live coverage for some details.  It brought in more than last year at just under 1/2 mil.  Wow, Way to go!!!  We enjoyed selling kettle corn, caps and yardsticks, trail mix, books and magazines!  Busy weekend, but always fun.  Pictures coming soon.

For those of you who have not been able to spend much time around Bean, this is a cute video that shows ways that she “begs like a dog.”
