Nancy sent in these beautiful stockings. This year she purchased her stockings because she was so short of time and wanted to make sure we had her contribution. Thanks Nancy for participating again this year! It means a lot.
The Santa stocking with the red floppy hat on the left reminds me of our baby bichon Johnny. Little face, lots of fluff.
We have also received $160.00 for postage which is very much appreciated as well. Last year postage was over a $1000.00, but well worth every penny.
We have also received donations of personal care items, which people have been collecting when they travel. Here is a list of items that we need for stocking stuffers
a personal note would be nice too!
From my son Lt. David:
Here's a list of things that soldiers will like to get in the stockings. In addition to the list that Sue (my mom) put up, these are some things that I liked getting while in Iraq:
Decks of cards
Kool-aid® (sugar added)
Iced tea mix
Anything that will last for a while because I'm sure that they will be getting more than one care package.
Hope this helps.
