Wrapping it Up!

We are filling Christmas lists for 33 kids this year through our Bright Eyes Foundation. Last night we had a wrapping party and I am so thankful for those who showed up to volunteer their time to help wrap presents. We have a big list to fill! The Hansen family from Farmington came up to help and share with their kids this life changing experience.

and Dash Cox who is an author and motivational speaker also volunteered his time.
along with Angie Bradshaw. Thanks guys!

We are still  in great need of donations for teenage boys. Deadline would be friday.(today) We want to get these delivered to the families this weekend. You can drop things off at my home or at Just a Bed of Roses in Farmington. We are so thankful for all the donations that have come in so far.

I got to call each family tonight and let them know we were coming and they all were so happy and grateful. That's the part that fills my heart and makes all the work worth it. I can't wait to deliver them. There will be some really excited and hyper kids! Whoo hoo! That's what Christmas is all about right?

So all in a week
I have conquered Santa visits, school programs, dental appointments for the kids, and filled these lists along with my own families. My husband thought it was funny when he snuck into my bedroom and snapped this picture of me, the kids and the cat crashing at 6pm the other night....I guess you can call it true Christmas exhaustion!!!

Hope all of your lists are getting filled this week. There are alot of kids that are in need of presents this year and donations are at their lowest. There are several places that could use your extra presents so go drop them off!
