Last night we had the chance to attend the annual school fundraiser–note that I say attend, not run or volunteer for (well, BgK did the photography), but I, myself, I just attended. As a guest. A guest free to enjoy the open bar, passed hor’devores, live music and dinner buffet.
And it was lovely.
We decided to hire MAM’s former teacher, Ms. A, as our babysitter, so that we could go and have a good time and not think twice about the kiddos being in good hands. They had a great time, and we we glad for the piece of mind.
Of course, no 21st century fundraising event would be complete without the silent aution component, and no guest would be allowed to leave without bidding….so I bid, and we won! We have the food for Junior’s upcoming baptism secured (and it will be yummy), and we can treat 13 of our closet friends (over the age of 9) to a tour of a local TV station by a local weatherman (who, a few years ago, danced at the adoption agency fundraiser as part of the celebrity dance contest).
We returned home at the stroke of 12, got the full report on the kiddos and went to bed. I was jolted back to reality when Junior woke up at 3:30 to be fed, but it nice to get out for a bit!
Did you do anything exicitng Saturday night??
