It was quite a feat to pull of getting enough presents for 400 Holy Cross kids especially when the donated shipment of toys did not arrive on time.
Luckily… some of the message boarders had been shopping – Miss Grace made a toy trip to Belize City – a last minute spree in town and a willing bunch of elves stuffing stockings with school supplies helped make sure that Santa had enough goodies to hand out. You can see by the smiles on their faces that the kids were quite pleased at what Santa brought them.Thanks goes out to all who helped make this possible.

Other exciting news Reef Radio held a telethon today to help get funding for the road in San Mateo up and running.
I walked 2.01 miles today – 6374 steps – 1790 aerobic steps – 16 minutes of aerobic activity (thanks for the new batteries for my pedometer Bill and Becky I am using them)
