Stocking update? uh...

Watch the NBC news at 10:00 tonight if you live in St. Louis! They heard about our stuffing party and sent a journalist and camera guy. Here's a little preview:







by the way, I hope no one is offended but we emptied all the stockings and redistributed all the goodies so that each stocking was stacked with equal goodies. Some stockings came in full of food, others full of electronics, so we made an executive decision to spill, organize and stuff! There was WAY TOO MUCH to fit in each stocking so Beth bought large Ziploc bags to put them in so we could just keep stuffing and not worry about it all falling out!







We were overwhelmed with the generous response. Each stocking was something to be proud and excited about! Thanks everyone!!

So glad to have heard about the stockings and to be able to do a little something for a few of our Men in the Service. I hope that it makes their Christmas a little better. God Bless them, and you for your stocking idea.
