Time Flies When You're Having Fun!!!

We're already getting ready for our 8th Annual Kid's Christmas Party!  Little by little, we have been buying affordable trucks and dolls--anywhere we could find them, all year long.

 We've just returned from our annual trip to Cuenca, buying more toys and dolls, 88 pounds of animal crackers and about 80 pounds of Christmas candy, and a bunch more decorations.  We wish to extend a special thanks to Rich and Nancy for putting us up, and for being such great hosts, and for being especially playful with Coquita as they performed baby sitting chores...

As most of our regular readers know, each of the 350 kids in our area, receive a doll or truck, a baggie full of animal crackers and Christmas Candy.   We also serve them and about 200 moms, hot dogs, a bag of potato chips, and Cokes.  They also get a 5 x 7 photo of them recieving their Christmas bundle from Papa Noel.  For many of these children, this is their only photo for the whole year.

Here are a couple of shots of us shopping this week...

 

 

 

 

Here is Alex carrying one of the big bags of Animal Crackers.  He has been coming to the party since he was a little boy--this year he is too old, so we will be giving him a Santa Hat, and making him into one of "Santa's Helpers".

To get you in the mood, here are some shots of last year's party...

Here's Papa Noel taking a well deserved break after personally handing out 350 gift bags to happy kids...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As all of our regular readers know, there is no way that we could do this party without the help of relatives, friends, and all of the great readers of this blog.  So...if you would like to help this year, please send what you can to our PayPal account, which is bobnrox@gmail.com


Also...every cent donated goes 100 percent to the kids...

 

Thanks to all of you for you wonderful help on previous parties, and for your support this year,


Bob & Roxanne and all the kids...
