Kisses for Callie

I had a request to put this blog site up so I went to Lisa's blog and copied the details, so I hope she doesn't mind. Its a great cause for a beautiful little girl. If anyone can help please do so. The blog is www. kissesforcallie.blogspot.com
Also if you go to Arbys in Show Low tonight from 5-8 they are donating 20% of their profits to the cause!!

Kisses for Callie,
Hello Family, Friends ! Just wanted to let everyone know if they haven't heard already that we have set up a blog in honor of our little cousin Callie who was run over by a vehicle a few weeks back. It is called "Kisses For Callie", in an effort to raise a TON of money for little Callie Jane Butler and her road to recovery.

Callie's cousin Brittany McNeil has an upcoming Evening of Excellence program with her church youth organization. As her value project she has chosen to organize and carry out a benefit yard sale with all proceeds benefiting Callie. This blog was designed to get the word out and "call all angels" in an effort to encourage them to clean out those closets and give to a worthy cause! The exact date, location and details are still being hammered out, however we will keep you posted.

For now, please gather up your items and contact Brittany or Lisa McNeil at www.kissesforcallie@live.com. We will make arrangements to pick up your items, or if you can drop them off that is also terrific! Monetary donations are also gladly excepted. While many of you may live in the White Mountains, please remember that this sale will be held sometime in late October, so if you are anyone that you know will be traveling down to the valley before them, please send your items with them!!!

If anyone has any new items that they would like to donate for an online auction, please let us know as well!

Please post this link on your blogs and send out emails to everyone that you know. We want this to spread like wildfire! The more donations we receive, the more we can help relieve the financial burden being felt by her family at this time, which is the last thing that we want them to worry about.

There is also a link that is set up by Callie's sister Ashley which allows you to make an online donation via Paypal.

Thank you for your love and support. More information will follow soon!

Lisa and Brittany

Kristal's Products!!!

My sister's new site has some new pendants that she is selling, they are really unique and cute!! Stop by her site and take a look. http://joyclan.blogspot.com/2008/09/new-product-in-my-store.html
I had surgery on September 19 to take the oil bubble out. The surgery went really well. I have a little discomfort but that should be relieved in about another week. My eye sight is actually a little worse than when the bubble was in. Its pretty cloudy and blurry, the doctor said that it should get better with time. I also have to have cataract surgery on both eyes. So hopefully by the time this all is done I will have near perfect vision??!!!!
Autumn got glasses for the first time about a week ago. She is so dang cute in them! I will try to get her picture and post it soon. She loves them and loves being able to see the chalkboards. She has received so many comments on how good she looks. I think it has really helped her self-esteem. She was also made the Laurel class president. She is so excited to be a leader.

Awesome Day!!!!!!

First off, my sister, Kandra had her baby boy today! He is so cute and precious. His name is Gavin Reid Owens. Kandra says he has my feet(poor boy), which may be a good sign that he will be tall. I am so proud of her, she had an epidural but was still in a lot of pain. He was almost 8 pounds and he is 20in. long. Look at her blog and I'm sure you'll agree!
I went to see Dr. Alam today and he said everything looks great, so great that I will be having surgery on Sept. 19 to remove the oil bubble!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He said that it looks like a cataract is forming in my eye too, but we will cross that bridge later. I am so blessed that I still have my sight and I am healing well. Thanks again for all your prayers and concern.
