This is totally awesome. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
I just got a call from Lori Hansen, with the Child, Family Life department. Tim and Lori have both been asked to stay at the training they are presenting at and now wont be back until next Tuesday. I hate to ask you to reschedule again but he asked that he be there. Does this work (Thursday the 21st would work as well). Thanks Kristie. This stuff is amazing!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... we will be there the 19 for the toy drive, and then the 20th for Libbys appointment....:lol:lol:lol
It is about a 90 minute drive each way.... longer if you are in rush hour. :lol:lol
I am sorry this keeps getting delayed... but on the plus side, we are closer to 1000 toys now!!
******** The date has been switched to Thursday the 14th......
Tom who does the kids show, is out tomorrow.... and he wants us to be on the show again......so he will be back thursday.
This give me 2 extra days for the toys to come in!***************
Libbys appointment has been changed to August 20th. ..due to scheduling conflicts.
So, that is a week earlier than I announced before!
I will update a bit later with new pictures of the toys that came in and the 'official' toy count!!
Thank you all!!
7 days from today!!
I am going to update the count this evening, or early tomorrow on how many toys I have for the toy drive....I will be willing to bet it is close to 600!!
I will let you all know!
The date has been set!!!
We are meeting Stephanie at the U of M on August 12th!! She is excited as I am for the toy drive.
Now, if you miss that deadline..and still want to donate....
Libby has an appointment there on the 27 of Aug. So, any stragglers will be delivered then.
(this is the appointment that she SHOULD be taken off one of her meds!!!)

Thank you too all who are helping me with the toy drive this year.
It is going to be another great year!!
Good Afternoon all!!
I am excited to announce the kick off for the 3rd annual toy drive.
We (my girls and I) are once again collecting toys for the childrens hospital.
This year will be donating to the University of Minnesota Fairview Childrens Hospital.
We will be delivering the toys the middle of August. I will let you know the specific date as it gets worked out with the hospital staff.

(there is a link there to the first toy drive info also)
The hospital new letter wrote an article on the toy drive also.
Read about it here!!
Scroll down and click on Our friend newsletter Issue 3, 2007
We are on page 11.
Want to see what I have already for the toy drive??
This fills one and half boxes. I STUFF the toys in.
For those of you who are new to this...
Here are the basics.
If you send me one toy for the toy drive, you may pick one of the patterns I am offering for free.
If you send me two or more toys, you may have both patterns emailed to you!
The toys can either be hand made, or store bought. Also, books are great too!
Last year, we had everything from movies, to books, to chemo hats, to baby blankets, not to mention toys!
Interested in what the patterns are??
Here you go!
My bumble bunz pattern
And also my Bunny Love pattern.
Please pm me for my address.
PLEASE be sure to include your email address in the package, as well as which pattern, or both, that you would like!!
Last year we ended up with 14 boxes! I hope to do as many this year.
I will update with new pictures of the toys that I receive also.
As many of you know, this project is very near and dear to my heart.
I am so fortunate that my middle child (who started all of this!!) is doing fantastic.
Better than fantastic! If all goes well, she will be taken off one of her medications next August. If she does well with that change, they will continue to wean her off all her meds...and she could be medication free in just over a year!! Keep your fingers crossed!!
Feel free to email me, or pm me with ANY questions you may have.
Thank you so much!!
A special thank you to Midds who is hosting a challenge for this toy drive.
I have a feeling we will have TONS of toys this year!!:cheer:cheer
