I am so excited about your Big Give and I just read what Gail and Billy did for your trip! That is FABULOUS and you will have an amazing time. Gail is incredible at finding out what will make a person happy!

I also loved the wonderful gifts you received from disneyanytime! We saw the vinylmations for the first time on Lisa's Trip and I am sure you loved getting your first one! There is so much magic about to come your way from the BG, the cruise and your time at Disney. Enjoy every minute of it beautiful lady...you and your wonderful family DESERVE IT!!!!

Chewy, the gerbil my mom mentioned earlier, is doing worse and his ear is bleeding a lot.

It took my mom almost an hour to get him cleaned up because he was so scared. He seems to have perked up a bit now.

Thank you so much Judy, Michele, Tracy, Gail, and Kristy

Chewy is better than he was last night, but his activity level today is much lower than usual.

Another Big Give package arrived yesterday.

Sorry I didn't get it posted last night - Chewy totally wore me out. He can hide in his tank, so we had him in a smaller container so I could get him cleaned up. He's usually very "laid back" (Cutie Pie is a hyper little thing), but he was racing all over, and trying to jump out of the container.

This package was from goteamwood

Most of the pictures are blurry because she was moving around so much. I couldn't use most of them because she kept holding the towel up to look at details on it, and then I couldn't see her face.






Thank you so much Jen for the fantastic beach towel!

Thank you to goteamwood for the beautiful beach towel. I really loved all the different colors on it. The snorkel Mickey and the letters with the little sharks in them are very neat. The towel is so soft, and I can't wait to use it.

Tom & Angel made a lot of progress on the FE today, and completed the pockets. If all goes well, they should be able to finish it next weekend.

I'm so glad you like the towel. I hope you'll get to spend plenty of time on the beach and in the pool. I have to say the dinner with the AK naturalist sounds amazing!
Have a great trip, I can't wait to read all about it.
Jen

One of the hardest parts of the past year was seeing how lonely Angel was in isolation, and I would literally plead that people would contact her in any way - even a "poke" on FB would cheer her up, and yet there was seldom any response to my pleas. To have a group of people that don't even "know" her, want to send her something, it means more than I can say, and I knew that it would make Angel extremely happy. :cloud9: We were very excited to be able to start contributing in a small way towards the gives in Dec., so I knew that the group was already working on other gives, so to have them take time to send Angel pixie dust meant even more to me. I could barely reply to Wendy's PM, because I was crying so much. :blush: I was in a much better mood, and determined to get my drawing right so that I could buy the materials the next day. Nope, it just wasn't working at all. I took another break, and found another message from Wendy, asking some questions. As I read it, I was flooded with emotions again, because I was already overwhelmed knowing they would be sending pixie dust, and now I was realizing that I had misunderstood, and they wanted to make her some things too. :lovestruc I was so excited that I called DH, and I should have waited, because I was crying so much that he couldn't understand me, and he thought something was wrong. When he could finally understand me, he was overwhelmed with gratitude too, and also pointed out to me that this is probably why my plans to make Angel's shirts weren't working out - God had a much better plan. :)

[COLOR="Blue"
[/COLOR]I felt the same way when I found out we were chosen too... I cried and I remember the girls asking why my eyes were wet... I told them some very nice people want to do something very special for us SO glad you guys were chosen! It has been an AMAZING experience!

I picked up the mail at 11:30, and I'm as bad as Trevor's sisters , anxiously waiting for Angel to get home from school so that I can see what she got.
I'm not much better than they are The girls will play with the packages and sing Mickey Mail for awhile until they get ready to move onto something else... But they do continue singing about Mickey Mail until we pick Trev up from school

So glad to hear the update on Chewy! Hope he keeps improving!

I never heard of an FE and looked it up. Looks like a fun thing to do with others on the cruise ship.

Love the BG towel that goteamwood made for Angel!
