The Gifting Tree for Town of Cary

The Gifting Tree 2016

The Gifting Tree 2016

Happy December!  It is time for the Annual Town of Cary Gifting Tree Project!  Once again, Smith & Smith, CPA is participating in this event and we went downtown Cary last week to decorate our Christmas tree.  I LOVE our location this year, we are right at the corner of Academy and Chatham Street in the heart of downtown Cary!  We are at the traffic light right across from Ashworth Drugs.  Our tree is a little different this year and is decorated with patriotic spirit as a reversed American Flag.  Many thanks to my good friend, Lindsey Dishman, for helping me come up with the idea!  I spray painted the top of the tree white and the bottom of the tree blue (we won’t talk about what my hands looked like once that was done!!).  Then I used red ribbon and bows for the top of the tree (for the stripes on the flag) and huge white snowflake ornaments (bought in Savannah, GA) for the white stars on the flag on the bottom of the tree.  I also have new solar lights on the tree to light it up at dark.  Please take a few minutes to use this LINK to vote for our tree. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cqhnpy9  It is one vote per email, so you only have to vote once!  The winning tree with the MOST votes will get $500 for the charity of their choice!  We will be supporting Life Experiences again this year as our charity of choice!  So please VOTE!

Life Experiences Annual Christmas Party

Matt playing Santa for Life Experiences

Speaking of Life Experiences, last night was their Annual Christmas Party.  It is always so much fun and an event that my family looks forward to each year.  It is a covered dish dinner party and all of the sweet employees trade names with each other and swap gifts.   One of them gets to dress up as Santa Claus too and passes out all of the gifts.  This year Santa was played by Matt.  He was so happy and you can see the big smile on his face!  Trent and Mark helped to pass out the gifts too.  It is so important to me so see our children involved with helping and loving others.  During the party, Mary Madenspacher, Executive Director, passed the microphone around the room and everyone got a chance to introduce themselves and their families.  It is so sweet to hear them tell how much Life Experiences means to them and sometimes they say really funny things too!   I am so honored to serve at the Board President for Life Experiences this year.  Here is a great photo of our Board Members at the party last night.  Thanks to My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Apex for helping me shop for this beautiful sparkly silver sweater!  They have tons of great holiday wear so check them out for your upcoming Christmas & Holiday parties!!!!!!  Tell them you read Beccasblog.com to get a discount with your purchase!

4th of July in Cary…the FUN STUFF!

 

Did you have a great 4th of July in Cary? (or wheverever you were)  Hopefully you did!  

Doughnut Eating Contest

 

Maybe you spent the mid-week holiday with your family doing a backyard cookout, maybe you were staying cool from the summer sun by chilling at the pool, maybe you attended a local 4th of July parade and cheered as loud as you could when the armed forces proudly passed by, or maybe you were on vacation and enjoyed celebrating our freedom in another special way.  Wherever you were and whomever you were with, I hope it was wonderful! 

 

CPA in a potato sack race

I saw something very unique during the 4th of July holiday…I saw a CPA compete in a potato sack race!!! And he WON too!  That’s right, Blake Smith, CPA, partner of Smith & Smith, CPA, participated in the Bond Park Independence Day Festival Lakeside Olympics (other celebrations for the 4th of July in Cary were easily found on Cary Citizen website)!   Blake first competed in the doughnut-eating contest, which involved tying a big, messy, sugary doughnut to a string and then trying to eat it off the fastest (he won 2nd place in the adult competition).  Not to mention that the summer sun and hot humidity heat made the doughnut all the more messy and gooey!  Next up was a potato sack race!  Blake competed against several other adults and came in FIRST PLACE!  Our crew of family was cheering like crazy and Blake used his height to really get some good jumps and crossed the finish line with a breeze!  He said that a potato sack race is all about the ‘start’, you have to get a good strong jump right off the bat…we’ll take his word for it!
