Christmas in May!

[The photo op pose]

Just to let everyone know, the container made it out of the port today and I was able to pick up all 22 boxes! For everyone who donated children's books (the children at New Hope Baptist Church), chewable vitamins (Pledgebank.com peeps and Acoustic Jeremiah fans), hygiene items and anything else....your things are in Liberia! And, thanks to the 7th graders at Bennett's Mill Middle School who raised money to ship all of the donations over!

[When I showed up to pick up my things, the man said, "Oh, Orphan Relief and Rescue. I don't know why, but all of your things are packed in alcohol boxes." Thanks Mom & Dad...we looked like we were having a big party tonight! But I guess that's what happens when you have to rush around for boxes at the last minute, right?]

And now for the funny picture. Not sure why I was so upset, and taken before the photo op picture so you can see all of the alcohol labels.
