ALL FAMILIES ARE DELIVERED!

NEWS & NOTES:
All the families are DELIVERED!

Wow!! Woke up early to a house full of helpers loading the gifts. Thanks to Richard Holeman for being our sleigh again this year. Honi & Teri, it wouldn't be the same without you guys and your family. Bo & Pat have always been there. We are all so glad that Bo is doing much better after his heart attack and surgery. Rick Miller and my daughter Tawana worked their tails off on the route. Robin & Cris, daughter-in-law, and two of my grandkids spent MANY hours shopping and wrapping gifts. One day the four of us wrapped six hours and then went shopping again.

We met more helpers at Sonic and excitement was in the air. Santa Larry joined us in his “Santa go to deliver” costume. It is always fun to see the reactions kids of ALL ages have to seeing him. We visited & lined up to leave. I always have butterflies just before we take off. We have worked all year for this day – all the planning, the shows, shopping, wrapping & sorting come together. What a great day to deliver Christmas gifts – even the weather worked with us.

We had families with children of all ages this year. There were many kitchen sets and bicycles to deliver. We did fewer families but more gifts. I could not do any more than the 65 kids. The nurses at the school pitched in to wrap and deliver some families for me. Having one hand buying and wrapping was an experience this year.

The families truly appreciated the gifts and had tears of joy going down their cheeks. A neighbor of one family was crying and thanking us for helping them out. Her mom came out and got her picture taken with Santa – the next day was her 88th birthday. We sang happy birthday to her – that and the hug from Santa Larry made her day.

We only messed up on one family and left a bag of gifts in the truck. Teri ran them over the next day and added them to the gifts under the tree.

The photos will be posted soon - wait until you see the corvette with a sleigh on top. That is our man Reese's car and sleigh; unfortunately we had a little accident and ran over the sleigh. No real damage thank goodness. Sorry Reese.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the car show participants for supporting us all year. We could not deliver Christmas to all the kids & families without you.

Thanks also to our web masters Calvin & Ellie who do all the work after the shows are over. They are the ones that make us shine on the web site.

Mark your calendars for April 4th which is scheduled to be our first show of the year. We also have one scheduled for April 11th. If we have a warm day before then we might put together an earlier show. Stay tuned for the latest developments.

Now it is time for me to shop for my family! MERRY CHRISTMAS & Happy New Year
