Preview, Update and Request.

Preview: The photographer from Saturday's photo shoot just emailed these pictures to me and I had to share!
Don't you LOVE them?! We do! I can not wait to get my hands on the rest of them!

Update: A big follow-up post is due, and one is coming, but for now I will share that we are having a good week. A really good week. Oakes has been awake, happy, and moving around. AND we have gotten to hold him every single day! Good medicine for everyone!

Request: We have mentioned the fundraising auction that is happening in mid-November. Some of you have requested invitations and others did not but we mailed you one anyway. Either way, the event organizers (Our AMAZING friends) are trying to finalize details so they asked that we encourage everyone to PLEASE RSVP to the event, even if you are not coming. If you have not received and invitation and would like one, please contact Ellen Moriarty ( and she will get one to you!

Two other things:
1. If you have offered a donation, donations need to be received in the next week so our organizers can include your donation in the auction booklet. Again, contact Ellen Moriarty, our Event Planner Extraordinaire, ( to do this if you have not already.

2. If you would like to advertise your business, simply send well wishes from your family, or make any sort of cameo in the auction booklet, you can purchase an ad. Keep reading for more details...

Make your mark in the Planting a Seed Auction brochure!

Everyone attending the Nov. 12 function at Sunset Country Club will receive the brochure and review it over the course of the evening as activities unfold. The brochure is the perfect way to advertise your business or send a special message to the Ortyl family.

All images will be printed in black and white. Please email a PDF, JPG or document of your ad to Elizabeth Pheney at If you are unable to email your submission, please attach it to your completed form (below). All submissions are due by Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011.
