Making a List and checking it Twice!!!

We're counting down the days "till our 9th big Christmas Party for 350 kids and 250 moms.

Take a look at Rox's revised list of things that need doing!and more...This doesn't count hours and hours Roxanne spends going over prior lists on paper,  and in her head,  in the middle of the night...

We had purchased 90 police cars, and with all the running around between various stalls for other kid's gifts, we failed to notice that they each required three AAA batteries to run!  Here in Ecuador, 270 batteries cost a fortune!  Fortunately, our friend and neighbor, Candace was kind enough to buy them in the US, and convinced her friend Freda to haul them down here for us.  Their timely support and hard work saved the day!

Here we are installing batteries in all the cars...We had some thoughts about what would happen if the sirens on several of these cars decided to go off while they were back in their boxes...so far so good...

Our next big job was filling 500 baggies with animal crackers and Christmas Candy...Our friends Tim and Janet provided much needed help with this project...

 

Just some of the seven boxes we stored them in...

Yesterday we picked up 600 wieners.  Yes!  This bag needed a special porter to hoof the 100 pound bag out to the car!

We have been buying the weiners from this stall for about 8 years.  The young lady who does all the figuring, was just a little girl when we started...

We also ordered 600 buns to be picked up in a couple of days...here are a couple of photos from previous years...

Here's some of the ladies putting all those "dogs" together...chips and Coke follow...

So...now we are down to the last couple of days before the big event, and we want to say again, how much we appreciate the support of our family and friends, who are enabling us to make this great party happen!

We could still use a little help, so if you would like to contribute a little happiness to some deserving kids this year, just send along what you wish to our PayPal account, which is bobnrox@gmail.com

Remember...100% of your contribution goes directly to the Kids!

Here are a couple of last year's group shots...
