We Were Pounded!

Sunday night after church services we got ready to attend what we thought was a class finger food fellowship. When we walked in for it (yes, we were late because I was talking!!!), we realized it wasn't just our class, but our friends who were throwing us a "pounding" for our new home. For those of you who don't know what a pounding is, it is where people bring a pound of this or a pound of that. We were shocked beyond belief that this was even happening let alone the things that were brought for us. We got so much food for our pantry and cleaning supplies for our cabinets. We even got 4 sets of brand new towels, Coke canisters for my Coke kitchen, Coke glasses, a clock to go above our mantel and new baking dishes! The kids were even pounded with a basket of their favorite snack foods, 2 boxes of Capri Suns, and new alarm clocks for their room! We always knew we had friends at Henderson, but this was such a blessing. We know we are loved and we love each of you in return. Special thanks to Sandy and RoRo for getting it all together. Sandy even took pictures because she knows I have to have pictures of everything! We will always remember this time!
