Give a Day - Get a Day


Next month we are planning a trip to Florida. Hopefully the weather won't be as cold there as it is right now. Lorin was just checking the forecast for Orlando this week and the warmest temp is 65. Tonight their low is 24. That isn't much warmer than we are tonight. Some friends of ours are there this week - I hope the weather forecast is wrong and you get wonderful temps and can swim, etc. Anyway, when we go we are planning to do all the typical "kid" things. Go to Disney a couple of days, Discovery Cove, Sea World and probably to the beach for a day. Disney has a program running this year where if you donate your time to a designated organization, you can get a free pass to Disney. So, we signed up for Project Linus. We had to make two blankets for each of us - 10 blankets. Here are the ones we made. They are quite specific on what you can make, size, colors, type of blankets, fabrics, etc. but, we had a good time. Well, I am not sure if Lorin and Morgan thought so, but we did accomplish our goal and got them completed. Aubree also completed some cards/artwork to go along with them. Project Linus distributes to children and teens that are in the hospital, have experienced losses/tragedies, etc. They distribute 75 blankets per month (on average) throughout Northern Wisconsin. It was great to do this for that organization and a great lesson for Aubree too. Can't wait to go on vacation.....

I really didn't want to see those blankets again. Haha JK. It was for a great cause and I would do it again for no Disney Ticket.

I have a good friend who participated in Project Linus and got passes to Disney World. They'll be going the week after next. Your blankets look nice and will be much appreciated. Blessings on your trip.
