We've won the lottery!!!

Well ok, only 4 numbers, but still ;o)

Went to the cinema for a free screening of Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus movie this morning. Romy was well chuffed to get a free goodie bag on the way in. On the way out one of the ladies who works at the cinema had dressed up as Barbie to greet the kiddies which Roo was also impressed with.

After the film we went for a mosey around town. We cadged five shoe boxes from a shoe shop for Operation Christmas Child. My friend Denise has organised a collection of filled shoe boxes for children who otherwise will have nothing this Christmas. So back at home we hunted round for stuff to put in them. We easily filled the boxes. We have one for a 2-4 yr old girl, one for a 5-9 yr old boy, two for 5-9 yr old girls and one for a 10-14 yr old girl. Lots of hair grips, scrunchies, cuddly toys, cars, bangles, etc that were laying around the house. We've also put a bar of soap in each, some crayons and an exercise book to draw in. Romy really enjoyed sorting it all out into the boxes.

It's a lovely idea, but I remember there were some concerns voiced over this last year. Can't find the link in question, but did go through their own site and found this one: http://www.samaritanspurse.org/MP_Article.asp?ArticleID=55

I recall someone we know doing a Romainian run last xmas, taking toys etc to the orphanages. I'm trying to find out if it's happening again this year.
