There is still time to make a toy donation for Toys for Tots. We have received many great toys this year, but even more would be wonderful. We have never asked for any other types of donations – just toys so that as many kids as possible have something to open on Christmas morning. Your generosity is great appreciated.
A little bit of snow really makes the display look great. Right now though, we are on the border line of almost having too much where it will start to create a few issues. The forecast is for the snow to stop this afternoon. Check out the live video stream: http://twasthenightbefore.com/?page_id=71
What makes this annual event even more magical, is the fact this couple are also ninjas. They pull in the driveway, unload bags and bags of toys and I never see or hear them. Today, I was working in my office – not more than 10 feet away from where they were unloading –and I never knew it.
One the themes of our display is “Believe in the Holiday Magic” – the kindness of this couple is why I believe.
We are up and running! The display is about 85% done, but is up and running tonight and everything should be completed tomorrow. Don’t forget about Toys for Tots and to pick up your “I Believe Bell”. Live video and audio is available here: http://twasthenightbefore.com/?page_id=71
Ready or not, our 12th year will be starting soon. If the weather cooperates over the next 10 days, we should be ready to go on Saturday, November 30th.
We are continuing to be a drop off location for Toys for Tots. All donated toys go to local Fox Valley kids through local charities. Also, for those that Believe, don’t forget to take your ‘I Believe Bell’ from our container in the driveway.
Stay tuned and check back for more updates!
The website, which is now 11 years old, has been designed to support multiple browsers, mobile devices and will be much easier to maintain and update. My preliminary testing has also shown that the live video stream will appear on almost any device – PC or Mac, Android or iPhone.
Halloween is over, Thanksgiving will be here soon and in less than 30 days, hopefully all the lights will be on too.
Working on revamping the web site so it can more easily be viewed on any browser, tablet or mobile device.
