To Sheryl in Canada...How can I even begin to thank you...You have made such a wonderful Christmas happen for my little girl..And then when I thought there couldn't possibly be anymore you surprised me with another...You have a very giving heart and I will never forget what you had done for my family this Christmas....
Thank you to the helper who sent the little baby care reminder gadget! The kids are having fun figuring it out and imagining being in charge of different things. Practical items like this really help calm the "I cant believe we'll have a newborn soon, ahhhhh!!!!" panic. So thoughtful of you....!
Thank you to the helper who sent the 50$ Amazon gift card. It was such a joy and relief to receive because we had just run out of a few grocery/pantry basics with no $ available to replace, and I'd been wracking my brain...It was SO nice to realize I could order similar things right from Amazon and stop stressing about it. You brought me such peace of mind, Helper--thank you!!!
Thank you to Kathryn for being my daughter's special yoga buddy ;) You are so sweet!
And thank you to the helper that sent the small women's and newborns clothes from the IHA thread--everything is just right....The first baby boy clothes I've gathered up for this new coming one, makes it all seem so sweet and fun (and close!). Thank you!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!
Everyone who gave us clothes, tons of food and snacks, drawing stuff for our older son, warm socks and boxers, a beautiful pear necklace, thank you so much. You have blessed our family more t han you know. We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!!!

Thank you thank you thank you to the helper who sent the amazing stuff for my kids! The craft things are PERFECT. My son is going to totally flip out over those tiny furry animal print notebooks as he LOVES writing stories and taking notes about wild animals! The little schleich animals will make my daughter's day as she (like big brother) is currently Wild Kratts obsessed and talks about animals perpetually. Also, the huge tub of Legos is perfect, they will love it.
You are so generous and so thoughtful and I so appreciate your help during this stressful time in my life. I'll never forget it!
To Walking Stick Toys- Thank you so much for the two outfits for my boys! They will be so excited to have a new outfit to wear!
To tia- Thank you so much for the fishing vest! It will make our fishing trips so much easier to have the essentials in a place that it easily accessible.
We opened gifts today.
I would like to say thank you to the Helper that sent me the gift card for MarkusUniforms.com. I was able to get a pair of shoes, and 2 sets of scrubs for work!!
A big thank you to the helper that sent the box of mega blocks and training pants. My little guy was excited when he saw how many blocks there were. Now we can start working on using the potty!
Thank you to the helper that sent the wooden cars and rubber band racecar. It is being played with right now.
To the helper that send the House of Hades book....My DS was so excited. He has been reading it since he opened it.
Thank you to all the wonderful helpers! Without you, my kids would not have any gifts since we are getting re-established. You have no idea how happy they are right now.
Thank you so much to the Helper who sent the package from Hazelnut Kids. The little "Paint with Wool" art kit is just adorable and I know several of our littles will have a wonderful experience with this cozy winter art form. It is all hidden away to be a Santa gift on Christmas morning, along with the set of Lyra colored pencils. Gosh, next to the ancient stubby Crayola pencils we've got here, the Lyra's just look so sturdy and vibrant...A few of our kids have an exceptional talent fro drawing and I can't wait to see what they'll create with such a high quality colored pencil to use--THANK YOU!!!!!
Also Thank You to the helper who sent the small sized black ladies gloves--a perfect and necessary stocking stuffer for my older daughter. She is quite thin and I think therefore chronically cold, and I'm happy to think of her being able to wear these everyday...THANK YOU!!!!

Thank you all so much! You have helped make this Christmas especially wonderful!
Thank you to the Mama who sent the big warm winter coat for my 18 year old. He's been walking around outside with just a hoodie the last month and a half and it's been COLD! He's gonna really enjoy his new winter jacket.
Thank you to the Mama who sent the purple coat for my 6 year old. She's been using last year's jacket and she's completely outgrown in since last winter- she'll be warm and toasty, and feel very pretty in her new purple jacket.
Thank you to the Mama who preordered Hollow City for my 13 year old. She's been asking for this book ever since we heard it was in the making, almost 2 years ago. She's gonna love it!
Thank you to Kathryn who sent the Lincoln Logs for my almost 3 year old. He spends all day building, building, building, with all his toys. He's gonna spend hours with his Lincoln Logs, I know it!
And thank you so, so, so much to Kathryn, who sent my 9 year old the Polar Express train set... and book... and movie. OMG, you have no idea how much he's gonna flip when he opens them! He's gonna be completely over the moon! Thank you so much.
Thank you to the HH who sent a carnivorous plant set to my son. He is going to be sooooo excited! I can already picture his face!
Aaaaand to my amazing HH who sent me a beautiful zip up sweatshirt, the color is exquisite, and oh, so warm and fuzzy! My boys were running around with it on...and only underwear because they loved it so much. LOL! I quickly recovered it and have been wearing it around the house. It is perfect for layering because you never know whether you are going to end up too hot or too cold!
And to the HH who sent me numerous gift cards, I can't even begin to express how amazing those have been to my family. Sneakers, dress pants, dress shoes and underwear, oh my! LOL!
To all the HH who have helped any and all FINs, bless you all. My heart is warm from the holiday spirit you have all shown.
