We got REAL Kisses From Callie!!

We would like to send out a HUGE thank you to all of those that supported our yard sale for Callie. Whether it was through donations of items, money, cards, shopping at the sale, sending baked goods, helping out at the sale, or just saying your prayers, we would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!

We were surprised with a visit from Callie! That was the best thank you that anyone could've received. I can tell you first hand, that she gives a new meaning to butterfly kisses! She is such an angel baby!

Callie and her cousin Zach. He and his Cub Scout troop did an awesome job helping to organize the items. Great job boys!

Callie and her cousins Brittany and Zach. Callie loved playing "fetch" with the little dog. She would throw it and Zach would get it for her every time.

We were so blessed with a large amount of donations. Thank you all for your generosity.Everywhere Callie went, she had a huge following. She's a star! She is even walking with her mom's help! You go girl!
Even though I was grubby from the yard sale, Callie still showered me with kisses. This was the highlight of my day!

Callie and her Aunt Faun who drove all the way from Las Vegas to help us with the yard sale!

As much as we enjoyed the visit, it was time for Callie to return home to Show Low. We are so thankful for the surprise guys! It is truly a humbling feeling to be in her presence. We know that you still have a long road ahead, and our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you. It has been an honor to be able to help out , even if it was in a small way. We hope that everyone will continue to help this family as they are amazing. We love you Callie, and send many, many kisses your way!

The blog is awesome!So sweet with that song playing while looking thru the pictures. I just get weepy every time I'm around her. I think part of me just still can't even believe what I'm seeing! She really is an amazing little person. Thank you for letting me be a small part of all the huge amount of work you guys did to make the yard sale a success. No offense, Vegas, but people in Az. are way nicer! It was great to visit with you guys as always as your brother says, in the"Q C"! He's hilarious!

I'm so bummed we didn't make it to the yard sale. Our day got all thrown off! I'm glad to hear that it went so well. And that's awesome that the extra donations went to help those soldiers! Thank you guys so much for everything!
