A pile of people. (about 1,500 to be exact)

So many memories made this year!

  1. Oh my Stars!! I can not believe you had so many people there. We were at your celebration about 3 years ago - and it's hard to imagine how you managed it all with that many people.

    Blessings to you for your faithfulness!

  9. This is incredible. We can only imagine all the work that went into this - what a true labor of love on behalf of your entire family, to bless so many families on your farm. Sounds like a wonderful day!

  11. Awesome pictures! Looks like loads of fun and encouragement! (And a bunch of preparation and hard work!) Out of curiousity, where did everybody sleep? I can't imagine your house and bus being able to contain that many people...

  12. Hi Anonymous,

    We didn't have everyone staying overnight at our farm.:) Some folks stayed at motels, campgrounds, etc.

    blessings,

  15. Aunt Karen!

    Yeah, it was a crazy and fun day. The Washington County Beef group did the hamburgers and Chels made pasta salad and friends pitched in with cookies. And we served chips and baby carrots. So we kept it as simply as possible.:) And we sold hard ice cream (my job:). You guys really should come some year!

    Nothing is impossible with God, and we had SO much help from amazing friends!

    love,
    Allison

  20. Yes, we have lots of pictures just waiting to be posted! We had company after Labor Day, were preparing for family camp, then left for two weeks of concerts/leading a family camp.:) We're home now, though, so hopefully the blog won't be silent much longer!

    thanks for reading!
