Be Charitable and Post

Hello Friends and Family!
Hopefully everyone has already read the below post. Thank you so much to those of you who have donated money, clothes, toys, forwarded emails, posted on your blog and said prayers!
I have had several friends ask about posting about this family on their blog and adding a donate button to their blog as well. If anyone else is interested in doing this, please contact me! I have already had 5 people I don't know donate to this cause. We are already at $450 and have had multiple donations of clothes and toys.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your generosity. It brings tears to my eyes...literally!

Sad News and the True Meaning of Christmas

Hello Friends, Family and Acquaintances,
I hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas season. Today my sister Heather, a teacher at Dry Creek Elementary School in Sacramento, told me about a family at her school. They are the Gorelkin Family. They are from Russia and have 10 children ranging from 1-13 years old. On Tuesday the Mother of this family passed away. She was 7 months pregnant. The family is very poor and very heartbroken. I feel deep down in my heart that this family truly needs help and I know there is only so much I can do, so I am reaching out to all of you for help. I know money is tight for everyone this year, but if there is any help that you can provide for this family in need it would be truly appreciated. If you would like to send a donation by credit card, you can visit my blog and click on the "donate" button on the right hand side:

or if you would like to send a check, you can make it out to:

Sal Garcia: Principle of Dry Creek Elementary
5529 Myrtle Dr
Loomis, CA 95650

Or if you would like to drop off a donation or toys/clothes for Christmas for the children, you can come by my house or Heather's (for those of you who live close by)
If anyone has any ideas on how we can best help this family, please feel free to email me.
Thanks you all for your loving support. We truly appreciate everything! Merry Christmas!

Cutest Family Ever!

I did Christmas Pictures for my sister Heather this year. I think they turned out great! Her kids could all be Abercrombie Jr. Models or something! Check them out...


Sorry, It's been too long I guess! I can't believe December is already here. In a week and a half we leave to go back east to be with my family for Christmas. We can't wait to see them! Here are some pictures from Halloween I should have put up a month ago, but that's just how life is right now! Enjoy...

Little Bo Peep and her Sheep. I made their costumes this year!

Abbi & Jack with their Aunt Heather the Treckie!

I was a brunette Tinker Bell if you couldn't tell. Abbi loved that!

The Lamb and the Lion!
