The day Ry helped

For about a week and a half now, Ry has been planning and planning. She wanted to find a way to help our family and her little brother. She thought of a couple ideas and finally came up with a sweet shop. She recruited friend, planned treats, decided how to display things by finding things she liked on Pinterest. Friday we baked like crazy. 
She did rice crispy treats, popcorn balls, brownies, cupcakes and candy... 
Finishing up...
It was sooooo cold but the girls stuck it out!!!
Ellie R. 
Whitney, Maddie, Ellie J... Such sweet friends for helping out! 

The goods!!!

This is a heart brother. Ry and Mas are the same age. Their brothers just younger than them both have HLHS... Mas understands Ry in a sweet and tender way. He gets her frustration and is so kind to her. (She may also think he is pretty cute). She will totally die that I just said that. Gator and Teag have a neat relationship too. They are the little brothers. Seeing Teag be in the hospital and be so brave makes Gator want to be happy there too. We also saw a couple others heart friends.. Thatch's momma and daddy, and Arianna's family. They are all so fantastic... 

Eden helped count.. 1..2..3..16..18..27...70....70...70...27....70-29... 

Ry counted and recounted. The amount was staggering to her. Thank you all so much. The kind hearts and generosity of our neighbors and friends is so incredible. There were so many highlights to this experience. Ry's French teacher even came. He is such a great example of going beyond the classroom and supporting his students. Three of Ry's helpers are fellow French speakers. So having these two teachers here meant the world to them.
Ry also saw immediate application of that hard earned money. We had to run to the RX to pick up one of Gators medications. 
Thank you to each person who supported Ry... Thank you for each person who gave to her, but ultimately gave to helping Gator get a new heart.

I heard that Mr Legrand showed up (I know it's not Mr but whatevs) and I agree- he and his wife are amazing. Every time I see his wife I get a small little voice that tells me that I need to give her a Book of Mormon and share the gospel with her. So far- I haven't done it. But- that is beside the point- I love that little Ry and it was so nice of her to let her friends help. Thanks for bringing Ellie home and for your friendship!!
