Church Garage Sale!

Well, the computer with the "Best Days of My Life" part 2 pictures has been turned off and this girl is too lazy to start it up as it would take a good deal too long. :) So instead I'm going to post about the Church garage sale our Church put on last week!! I hope y'all enjoy!!

In the beginning we set up, ate lunch and then consumed some homemade lollipops made by the Degenhart family...

As you can probably tell, they were quite enjoyable little blobs of sugar...


(are you sick of lollipop pictures yet? :))

Meanwhile, Geneva takes a turn at the trampoline...

I'm not sure if she liked it or not.

Mel, Meli and Len appear to be having a relatively good time!

As do Nathan and Zach!

A few of the younger girls cleverly set up their own little booth! Did fairly well too! :)

*random moment for random self portrait*

Much laughter occurred...
And many smiles. :)

Mr. Sanford - the deacon who put the garage sale together!

I love this next one. :)

Looking at the wares!


Playing Apples to Apples at some point during the day!

And finally, eating dinner! (The girls were enjoying those carrots, methinks. ;))

All in all, it was a delightful day. :)

Looks like fun!! -- very creative pictures. :D

Kathryn Grace said...

We haven't done a garage sale in a looooong time...
So did you make loads of cash?? :-)

Ella said...

What got me was you playing Apples to Apples.....I haven't played that in a year or is a lot better played in a huge group.

Oh, I sent you an e-mail....let me know if you get it! It will come from "Gabrielle Gardner" just so you know ;-)

Jessica NicDhòmhnaill said...

Bethany, It was! Thank you! :)

Kathryn- LOTS of it!! Thank heaven! It was a HUGE blessing as all the funds went towards our Church!

Ella, Yes! I is!
An email! Yay!! Which email address did you send it to? I have several and I've forgotten the passwords to most of them! lol. The one I generally check is jessicanicole90(at)gmail(dot)com ! I can't wait to get it!

<3, Jessica

A garage sale is a fun way to have a productive day. I'm glad you grabbed the camera.
Wish we were there.

Jessica NicDhòmhnaill said...

Jen, They are!! :)

Mr. H., I wish y'all were here too. Miss y'all. Thank you for giving some of the family such a wonderful time! Tiff has been talking non stop about her visit! I think she loved it. :)

Jean said...

Ohhhh, I miss y'all. I recognize everyone. We will be there again I just know it!!!

Looks like y'all had fun. Maybe you could get me the lollipop recipe sometime?

Many, many blessings, Mrs.H

Jessica NicDhòmhnaill said...

Mrs. H., You MUST be here again. And soon. I won't have it any other way!!

I'll have to ask Mrs. Degenhart for the recipe, but I'll try and get it to you sometime soon!!

Love and Hugs, Jess

Enjoying your blog Jessica!

Hello Jessica,

I just came across your blog and was impressed with your posts! And I saw that you participate in Nanowrimo! Congratulations on getting your manuscript done last year ~ are you trying again this year?

I joined nanowrimo earlier this year because I love to write! but due to conflicting schedules this month I had to put off the November challenge until next year. Instead I wrote my book over the summer, and put the finishing words down last week! Very exciting!

Your book looks like it would be allot of fun to read, I am an Austen lover too :) Do you have any plans for publishing it?

~Have a lovely day~

Lauren Ashley

Jessica McDonald said...

Thank you Tayla!!

Lauren, Hello! Nice to "meet" you! Thank you...I'm very honored that you've enjoyed them.
Yes! I participated in NaNoWriMo last year and won! I was pretty happy. :) This year I'm hoping to get to 50,000 but due to EXTREME busy-ness, I don't think I'll be able to reach my goal of 50,000. :( But we'll see. :)
I have hopes of someday trying to publish my novel, yes! As to actually being published is another whole story. :)
You have a lovely day too! Thank you for commenting!

In Christ Alone,
