Operation Purge...


You see these sweet faces?  Pretty cute huh?

What's that you say?  That hat looks oddly like a bowl?  Hmmm...


 Well, hello Mick-Pirate!  And look!  She's clothed!

Oh, those sweet, sweet faces.  Well, don't tell them, but mommy is conducting a covert toy purging operation today.  I know, I sound like a mean, horrible, cruel, mommy.  But, toys are multiplying like crazy, and I am merely trying to control the population.  Humans are drastically out numbered in the Jackson household.  As I'm sure you are aware it is dangerous for parents when the ratio is out of balance...it usually means there are not enough habitats for toys and our feet are the casualties.


Not to worry...these two guys are safe.

 These guys, however, will be making their new home with children and families who will love them and give them a nice comfy place to stay.

How do I, mean mommy, get away with this?  Well, I took note of the toys that were being forgotten, and I slowly began pulling toys out of the toy box and stored them away.  The kiddos never noticed, or asked for the missing toys, so I decided the neglected toys needed a new home with little ones who would light up and be excited about them.

These lucky guys will go to homes of refugee children who have relocated to Iowa.  These toys have a big job to do...but they're up for the task!

Have you done any purging lately? 

Happy Wednesday!!!

Where did you figure out how to get them to the refugee kids? Ok...that was like, the most ridiculous sentence ever, but you know what I mean ;)

Hey Have...there is a guy at my church who works with a local ministry that helps refugees get settled and gets them the necessities(housing, furniture, home goods etc).

I'd have to purge soon. My house is fast becoming a toy zone as well.
