Why not to answer emails late at night !

Have you ever gotten up in the morning and realized what you may have gotten yourself into on line the night before... I think of back when I worked night security and would put a bid on eBay at 4 in the morning... then in the morning wondered what I am going to do with a Saxophone.... especially when I don't play any instrument....
Well I got up this morning to realise that I both issued and excepted a challenge to have a pie thrown in my face by my girls.... you see we hit our target of $1000 last night to get the kids from two of the orphanages as well as some of the kids from needy families we have been supporting sponsored for a Christmas dinner in a Restaurant.... This means that Cindy Lajoy will be receiving a pie in the face by her sons... when she mentioned that she wishes she was not alone, I suggested that If we could raise another $1000 we could bring a Christmas party to another orphanage that has 150 kids in it... I then suggested that maybe her husband Dominic could have a pie thrown in his face if we met this challenge, then to sweeten the deal, I agreed to have Emma and Bekah throw pies in my face if we can meet that target... OK so it seemed like a good idea at the time.... well we have now had another $150 in toward the second challenge so $850 from now, things are going to get messy... we will video the event and post it right here for the world to see.... then in another month we will post the photo's and video's of the kids in Central Asia... for some reason, I think that the excitement here will pale in comparison to what will be going on there...

HOORAY!!! I am SO excited about not only meeting the one challenge, but the second one as well!!!

And selfishly, I can't wait to see the pies in the face! :)

Hahahaha! John, you and Dominick might be off the hook if we can't raise that much, but MAN I'd love to see your face covered, as well as Dominick's!!! I have 3 little boys who are going nuts asking me every hour "are we close yet?". let's hope we ALL end up with Pie on our face!
