The Concert

 We had an amazing time at Lilly Mac's last night.  We packed that pub full of family, friends, music and food.  It was so wonderful to see the outpouring of support for Scarlett.  She was less than thrilled to be there, but did her best to enjoy herself. 

THANK YOU to Marion, Stephanie and all of Banish the Dogs for setting this up and playing.  We had many people ask us where to buy your CD...time to go big!

THANK YOU to the staff of Lilly Mac's, who outdid themselves trying to serve the full house while tripping over kids.

THANK YOU to all the families from my school, and especially my first grade class, who came out.  I loved getting to see the kids and all of you.  Chris and I feel very lucky to be a part of this group.

THANK YOU to my teacher friends who braved a pub full of their students on the weekend.  You guys are awesome!
THANK YOU to my old friends who came - both past teacher buddies and even friends from high school!  

THANK YOU to the very nice couple and their October baby (sorry, I forgot all the names!!) who came all the way from Alameda (very far!) and even brought an adorable hat for Scarlett.

And finally, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who dropped something in the band's tip jar for us.  We are amazed and shocked at how generous everyone has been, and we feel so lucky to have this much support.  

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all.

We were glad we could make it, even if I was a little tongue-tied. We're rooting for Scarlett!

(And hope you found both hats, not just one... The pink was made by my husbands best friends mother)

I've been following your journey, and I just want to tell you how awesome I think you guys are. This is truly an inspiration to me. I'm so happy Scarlett's surgery was successful, and that you are getting so much support! I have a 6 month old, and this whole thing has really touched my heart. You are amazing people, and I admire you so much. You and Scarlett are always in my thoughts and prayers.

We absolutely would have been there. Only problem is, we live in Maryland.
I'm so thrilled to hear that everything's going so much better! We are still praying for you all.
