Holiday Gift Show.. the results

Hey everyone.. happy holidays..!! Hope you are all enjoying the holidays with family and food.. :)  Remember I told you all about my Holiday Gift Show last week.. firstly I want to thank you all for your kind words of encouragement.. but now the moment i'm sure nobody was really waiting for but I'll tell you anyway.. the results are in.. I've crunched the numbers and after a few weeks of preparations.. and 3 hours of the show minus set up time.. (scroll down to see the rest) we had a total of 30 something attendees. Yes.. you heard me.. 30! Of that I'm sure that 25 of them we're there just to see their kids preform as the carolers.. The choirs of two school's were there.
