Tried to stop a stampede for free gifts?

And that's just the teachers...........LOL

With only 2 hours of sleep -- and snow starting to fall!!!

I was determined that this day would go off without a hitch --
AND IT DID!!!!

Just to let you know -- My civic was packed and my best friend Jim
came over and we packed his F-150 extended cab --full of gifts!

Got to the school and stole a few kids to help unload the car/truck!!
I gave them each a couple of pencils since they helped!!

I walked into the teachers long -- I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH CARNAGE!!!!

Bagels flying --coffee bubbling -- giggling -- There may have been an unfortunate plastic knife incident while spreading the cheese!

I just stood quietly in the doorway and nodded to Ms. Susan (the school liason) -- and she immediately hushed the room - grabbed my arm and announced that "This is Santa!!!"

Everyone stood and applauded and came over and shook my hand!!

We then went off to the gym to see the song fest!!!

And Uncle Jeffy got a suprise!!! -- not only were the children singing to the students -- but about 250 parents!!!!!

and after the 3-4 grades sang -- I was ushered up to the front of the
audience and given the microphone and told to say something!!

I think they got a pic to put on the website!

I had a very attentive crowd and when they started hearing what was being donated and where all it was shipped from -- the applause started and kept going!!!


Speaking of which --

so you can look at it later and see if the pics have shown up!!!


Gang, I am extremely tired -- feeling quite joyous -- and still teary eyed!!! --- You have truly impressed me!

I am going to take a nap --and then let you know about a special package that is being delivered today!!!

I love you all,

and from the very depth of my soul, I can never say this enough times!!

THANK YOU!!!!

Uncle Jeffy
