There's a reason for my absence this week.
It deals mostly with sugar...and butter...and flour...and lots and lots of frosting...
Lots of cookies!

I just finished up a batch of cookies for a very special cause:
My good friend, Jessica is hosting a fundraiser tomorrow for my brother-in-law Cory who was diagnosed with recurrent hodgkins lymphoma.  Many of you have been praying for him, and we really and truly appreciate those prayers! 

If you live in the Des Moines area, we hope we'll see you tomorrow!  Here are the details...

You are Invited!

What: Craft Show Fundraiser for Cory Ott
Where: 522 SW Cherry St.  Ankeny, Iowa
When: Saturday, September 4th

...A little shopping...a huge blessing.

Every penny raised during the open house will go directly to Cory and Calli, to help cover expenses incurred during Cory’s illness.

You are such a cookie diva! So cute! I just might have to hire you out sometime. :) That fundraiser was such an awesome idea. I loved shopping and knowing my money was going directly to Cory and Calli. Now that's what I call guilt-free shopping! :) I hope it raised a lot of money for them!
