The Shirts Are In!

We have been completely humbled by the overwhelming response to our t-shirt fundraiser. Our child is certainly blessed by many people who already love him or her.  I cannot wait to start getting pictures of you all in them so we can start putting together our "Village People" book for our little one!  

Something that was really fun was that Clay and I actually got to be part of the screen-printing process for our shirts!  Some of you may or may not know that I work at a t-shirt and promotional product store in our town, and my boss amazingly agreed to help us out with our fundraiser.  Clay and I got to go and be a part of the whole thing and help print our shirts!

This is the screen that was used to print our shirts!  Clay stood over by the printer and loaded and removed our shirts as they went around and were printed.  He then placed them on a dryer for the ink to dry.  

I stood at the other end of the dryer and caught shirts as they came through.  It was so much fun to get to be a part of this process.  My bosses Petey and Sara and their daughter Dakota were all there helping us print.  I was so mad after we left because I realized I didn't get a picture with them!  We are so thankful for them and their help to us in this process!  

We then took the shirts to my parent's office and used their conference room as a sorting line.  My sweet mom came and helped to get all the shirts sorted and labeled.  

And this is what our living room has looked like the past few days!  The shirts are now done and are ready to go out to all of you!  If you are a part of our church, Clay has them in his office and you can run by there and get them.  If you are in our area, I will be contacting you to work out the details of getting them to you.  If you don't live close, you should be getting yours in the mail soon!  

And one more thing I don't want to ever forget:  these precious cards a sweet friend made for us to put in each bag.  We would love for each of you to keep this card as a reminder to pray for us and this entire process.  We have sincerely been so encouraged by each one of your sweet prayers over our growing family!  

If you still would like to order one, please let us know!  We have a few extras but are going to be doing another printing run as well! 

Words do not seem to be enough to express how thankful we are for each of you.  Please know that every day the Lord is using the people He has placed in our lives to teach us more about Himself and His working in every day lives.  

Waiting Joyfully, 
Stacy and Clay
