I have been overwhelmed by how much help we have gotten for the Fall Festival. We wanted to do a different raffle this year. Usually we ask area businesses for a small donation so that we can raffle $100. A hundred dollars is not what it used to be. So, since all of the 4th grade teachers are big on family and family activities, we planned on putting together a basket to engage families in doing things together. I suggested "Movie Night", since my kids and I enjoy popping popcorn and watching movies. MY OH MY AT THE RESPONSE WE HAVE GOTTEN!! I never dreamed that so many parents would help to donate items to our basket. We have 10 DVDs, cases of sodas, boxes (Yes, boxes) of popcorn, lots of chips, 2 Halloween fleece throws (thanks, Beka Smith), and bags and boxes of candy. AND, my sweet husband is heading to Batesville to pick up 4 family tickets to the Melba. I am not sure I will have a basket large enough to put all of these things into! That is a problem that I don't care to have. We will figure it out and make it beautiful! Here is a before shot:
I will post an after picture tomorrow.
This makes me want to win this basket! Chances are 3/$1.00!! Pretty cheap for a huge basket of goodies!
