So...the game is here and gone and I am still standing!!!
Saturday we had a wedding in Lincoln - Chad's cousin got married so we stayed down there so Charli could enjoy dancing and swimming as part of her big weekend! She really enjoyed dancing around with everyone and by herself...she is such a doll - I can't stand it sometimes :)
Sunday morning we took off and came home to start the big day of the game!! Charli was great all day, she ran around and played...enjoying the big open spaces!
We were a little disappointed with the turnout for the game, not to in ANY WAY discount those who did come! We were so pleasantly surprised by the faces that we saw, it warmed our hearts! But, there were a few that were missing that were noticed - but that is life I guess!! Our goal was 250 people and $1,000 to raise for our team. We only had about 115 attend, BUT - we raised $800!! Those who came were beyond generous and left us speechless once again! Thanks to all of those who were able to come out and support the Huskers & the "Charli's Angels"!!
Thanks to those who helped make the day possible!! Big thanks to Humphrey High who allowed us to host the event in their space! Also thank you to the fellow "Charli's Angels" team members who helped in the event with posters, setting up, tearing down, taking care of Charli...and everything else that made the day go smoothly!
We got a HUGE surprise when Lane (his link is to the right!) walked in with his family!! They came to the game from Norfolk - it was awesome to have another childhood cancer warrior there to help people see who and what we are fighting for!! We had never met their family, and sadly the day was so rushed and so blurry that we didn't get a good opportunity to talk with them, but I know my sisters loved on Lane quiet a bit!! What a blessing that boy is, I am happy to have met him, but sorry we didn't get to spend more time together...another time we hope, when it is a little less hectic!!! Please visit Lane Fickler's site to the left he is a Leukemia fighter...and in our hearts forever!!!!
Enjoy the pictures!!
