I have a few thank yous to post! We are having an issue with our post office, so three of our packages arrived torn & open, but it seems that most (if not everything) was still inside.
~Thank you to the family that sent the box of board books for DD2! She loves books & will be thrilled to have some of her own!
~Thank you to the mama who sent the BEAUTIFUL fairy costume from Sarah's Silks! DD1 will LOVE it!
~Thank you to the family who sent the box of art supplies for the kids (feathers, crayons, construction paper, origami paper, etc); my kids will be able to spend HOURS creating with the items you gifted us!
~Thank you to the family who sent the Nintendo DS games for DS2! He will be THRILLED when he sees them. He saved up his birthday money to buy a used DS, but had no games to go with it (big disappointment to an 8-year-old!). He will be SO excited when he sees them!
~Thank you to the family who sent the large box of Melissa & Doug art supplies! They will make amazing stocking stuffers! My kids will be so happy!
~Thank you to the mama who sent the 3 costumes for DD1 (princess cape, native american costume, pirate costume). She & DD2 will have so much fun playing dress-up together!
I hope I got everyone who has sent gifts for my children; each one of you is such a blessing to us! I can't say thank you enough! It is a great feeling to have these gifts to give to my children-I know that they will LOVE them!
I cannot begin to express how much the generosity shown to my children means to me. DH has been very sick, and while we had hoped the emergency surgery he had would solve the problem, it hasn't, so he has been unable to work (or even look for a job). We found out yesterday that he is going to have to see a specialist a few hours away, as the local dr.'s are at a loss. With that dr visit, any hope we had of him returning to work soon went out the window. Our budget it stretched so thin...we are juggling bills at this point to avoid the electricity or water being shut off...there is literally no extra money for Christmas--BUT thanks to the generosity of mamas here our children will have gifts under the tree, stockings filled with surprises & a magical Christmas! The MDC mamas have kept the wonder of Christmas alive for my children.
