The boys holding their BIG GIVE presents.



Thank you Figmificent for the wonderful I Spy Bags. The boys really like them. After they opened them my 5 year old disappeared and I went to find him and he was sitting on the steps just playing away with his bag. I went back to get my husband to show him (because he looked so cute) and my husband had the other one just playing too. They already have alot of fun with the bags.

They were wonderful and we truly apprecaite it. You are very talented.

I know what you mean. My kids got theirs yesterday and just loved them. I have never seen them before but now don't see how I could have gone through our Missouri trip with out them.

I use the 640x480 Large size to get the size of the pictures on my PTR. Hope this helps.

Glad the boys are enjoying them! Good things don't usually happen when children disappear, especially when they're quiet Seems like the adults are enjoying these as much as the kids You are most welcome!

My husband is still enjoying it and my mom came over to watch my boys and of course the boys could not wait to show her all of their goodies and when I went home for lunch and I caught her playing with it.

Thank you again.

Thank you so much Princess Caitlin!!! The boys enjoyed their gifts so much. Lucas asked how did you know how to get just the right things. He said she knew to get me by favorite puzzle book. He has just started to get into those word search puzzle books and just loves it. So he was thrilled!!!!

Lucas and his puzzle books



They were still in the P.J.'s that day. Lucas says it is still summer break and P.J. days are the best. I have to agree.

I have be meaning to post these pictures but I am just now getting the hang of this picture thing. This was my poor attempt to create a Disney Castle Cake. This was our celebration to begin our official Disney Countdown.

That IS a great cake -- don't be so hard on yourself.

It's good to see all the goodies the boys are getting from The Big Give! That is one of my favorite parts of reading the PTRs -- to see all the goodies those ladies send to these kids.

Have a great weekend! It's warm on this side of Kentucky. I guess we've been spoiled by a cool summer so I won't complain. It IS August afterall

Thank you for!!! At least the cake tasted good. That is what coutns.

The Big Give has been great. It is like Christmas coming home and finding what Santa has left on your doorstep.

I know July has been great but I afraid August is going to be bringing the heat back.

Great updates! Love the photos and big give gifts so far! We definitely need bigger pictures though - if you are using photobucket just pick a larger size.

Thank you for so much for your comments. I am trying with the sizing of the pictures but I must be doing something wrong. I go in and resize and think I have done it until I get over here and see the posting. I am going to try to work on the pictures again and hopefully I can get it right. The boys received another Big Give today and I will post those pictures tonight. I am going to work on that sizing problem.

Stay tuned to see if she can get it right................

Photobucket can be very hard to work with! At least I think so unless I am totally clueless. I wouldn't worry about resizing the old ones but any new ones you load in there, pick large or just link them as is. We don't mind huge photos! Glad to hear another package arrived!

I agree with Jen...I would not worry about resizing the old ones.

I always "preview" what I am about to post to check my picture size. And I learned the hard way that you can go smaller, but you can't go "bigger" once you have resized it...so I usually start with cropping the picture, then resize it to Large, then post it. And that usually works.

If you still have trouble, call me and I can walk you through it. I should be around my computer quite a bit for the next few days and don't mind walking you through it. You should have my number...if not, PM me and I can send it to ya again.
