Garage Sale

Garage sale day was last Saturday. I didn't have time to take pictures or post or do anything.

After it was all said and done we still have too much crap but we got rid of a lot.

My favorite part of the whole day was when Ryann starting bringing all of her painted rocks from the backyard up to the sidewalk. She arranged them all in a nice pile.

After awhile she curled up next to her rocks on the sidewalk and just laid there. Not talking, not really doing anything.

We went over and we found out that she was sad no one was buying her rocks. :(

We quickly went into action. My friend Heidi made a beautiful sign "handmade rocks by Ryann", that we posted above her rocks. We moved the rocks to a more centralized location, and then I started mad texting friends and family to come and buy her rocks. She was pleased as punch with that first sale to a cute grandma. She made 12cents on that one. Then our friends the Ingrams came to buy a blue rock for their boy, then the Bakers came and bought 3 and then Grandma mingo saved the day as well as Heidi and a few other friends.

Seriously the best part of the day.

Well, that and the pizza, and selling the pool table, and getting rid of baby clothes to a bunch of friends, and seriously, making the extra cash was really nice too.
