So, we went to a vey nice party at FUS a while back, and I didn't get around to blogging about it.

Cabaret is an annual fundraiser at FUS that centers around a silent auction. We were sad that our friends Nina and Juve came thinking it was an open party, and not $30 per person at the door. A surprisingly large number of things are open to the public at FUS for free, but a fundraiser apparently does not fall on that list. Oh well, sorry guys.

We had a good time though. There were separate parties for the little kids and the bigger kids (Atticus spent some time in both) and there was a lot of good food and good friends for us adults. The evening was mainly structured around a large silent auction, which was weird for me at first, but once we got into it a little, it was fun. We ended up walking out with a basket of bath/beech toys for $26 and a fully catered and entertained birthday party with a local storyteller for $100 (she seemed really cool and open to letting us decide which story would be the theme of the party) which we will use for Atticus's 4th birthday. It would have been more fun if we were rich, but it was still fun.

One of the things I would have bought if we were rich was a sermon from the head pastor, Michael, and I would have asked him to talk about "Why is FUS so white, and is it a problem?" or some other problematic topic that doesn't get talked about much at FUS. Anyway, the dreams of a dreamer.

Atticus rotated between the room for little kids and the room for bigger kids. The childcare people in the big kids room were excited to see him (although not excited to be on camera), apparently he is fun.
