  1. Awwwww Tams, going to miss you >sniffle sigh<
  2. We haven't lost anyone yet lol Well, there was that one time .........
  3. Sending prayers and {{{HUGS}}}
  4. DerrickT can we get this pinned to the top of the forum? I'll bring the 5 racks with aluminum trays and sterno for them. Food wise~ maybe I'll do a repeat on the mac n cheese, that seemed to go well. Not sure what else but I'll figure out something as we get closer. I'll also bring a couple of plugs for the auction and see what else I have around. Let me know what else you need.
  5. This just keeps getting better and better. So blessed to be a small part of this
  6. Side note for a giggle~ our neighbors across the street have a 2 yr old. He saw Santa leaving with the gifts and said “Momma, Santa’s at his workshop” I had offered to stop by but he admires Santa from a distance lol
  7. Santa was exhausted after all that fun with the kids. Carole you're up !
  8. Family 3 is a Mom, Dad and 11 month old little cutie who was born 2.5 months premature. She spent several months in the hospital as she wasn't able to eat on her own. The special formula she's on is $40 a can and it only lasts 3 days. Dad lost his job and little cutie had to be fit with a helmet as her skull wasn't closing. She's also going to need some special therapy as she is way behind on meeting her developmental benchmarks. At almost a year, she can be put in a sitting position with props and be ok. Without props she will often tumble over and cannot put herself back up. She is just starting to crawl backwards but she smiles almost all the time and is such a happy baby. A series of events sent the family on a downward spiral and with little family support system it almost got ugly. This is the part where you guys stepped in Taking Christmas completely off their hands. Mom and Dad got many practical gifts= gift cards for groceries, gas and a drug store. Diapers, baby clothes and several cans of that very expensive formula. The big gift being new tires for the car that takes Mom and baby to work/daycare ( they were horrible!) and even a date night of dinner and a movie that was sent to me directly with instructions to "go all Romeo and Juliet on them!" Good news=Most recently, Dad found a job and they were very lucky to be selected in a lottery for less expensive housing. Mom is taking 10 hours of overtime a week to help them get back on their feet. They were completely blown away by the outpouring of generosity having never experienced anything even remotely like this. The picture of little cutie with Santa brings me to tears
  9. Merry Christmas SOL. I can't begin to tell you guys how proud I am to be a member of this awesome group of people. Saying you guys ROCK, is a gross understatement and I only saw/carried out a fraction of this beautiful tradition that is The SOL Christmas family this year. Biggene and I were blessed with the task of Christmas families two and three. Family two is a Mom with three children, who at 38 yrs old found herself a widow when her husband of 20 yrs passed unexpectedly. She has also been battling some medical issues so it hasn't been easy. Santa arrived at their house at noon on Christmas Eve. The little guy was soo surprised , he tripped over his own feet and got a case of "crazy legs" and couldn't get up lol . Santa told the two little ones (5 &7) that since they had been extra good and very brave this year, he had decided to make them his very first stop. Mom had known we were coming but had no idea of the extent of it. About halfway through, after opening a Costco gift card, she came over to give me a hug and just started sobbing on my shoulder. Just being able to have some of the pressure removed for one day and to be taken care of and not have to worry on how she was going to make this happen , was such a huge relief.
  10. My little neighbor watching us through the window ( I did speak to Mom earlier and ask if she wanted us to come by~ he admires Santa from afar lol )
  11. The Santa's are getting their pictures downloaded and in the case of this elf, figuring out how to post said pictures with this brand new *&@#*^ computer. Not to mention that our other Santa had to be rescued. I will say the two families we delivered to~ both Mom's were in tears. One sobbing on my shoulder multiply times. The children~ 4 total for us~ were all huge smiles. Best thing~ my neighbor posted a picture of her little boy (2 yrs) looking out the window at us loading the car and said "Momma, Santa's at his workshop"
  12. My apologies~ Biggene has informed me that this, is in fact, a needle.
  13. Awesome job Mike!!! Just sent you some donation pictures
  14. Awesome !! Thank you so much! That puts it in a higher level and hopefully raises more money for the orphaned pups.
  15. Hi guys, Maybe you can help me. I'm a donations coordinator for a rescue I volunteer with. We are holding a gift auction. The Philadelphia Phillies donated a signed baseball cap by Ryan Howard #6. I need to get an estimated value so I know what prize level to put it in. I've searched but can't find another anywhere. It's not a World Series hat, just the standard red one with the "P" on it (the hat itself is $17.99) Any help is greatly appreiciated
