Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Toys for Girls and Boys plus Our Christmas Card

thankful thursday blog hop brian 12092021

Hello everyone, thanks once again for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always thankful to each of you for joining us!  Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today we’re thankful that we got to contribute to hopefully a Merry Christmas for some boys and girls who have next to nothing.  Sure, we continually give to and support our local animal shelter, including at Christmas.  We’ve not always taken the time to help the younger humans in our community like we should, but we changed that. 

This year the Mom and Dad started early, like ten months ago early.  Every time they when somewhere where toys were available they bought one or two or three or four.  After doing this all year we ended up with our sleigh full of toys.  One of our local police departments collects toys for those kids in need and they were most happy when our sleigh arrived.  We hope those children have a happy holiday this year and in the years to come.  We’re thankful to be able to brighten their holiday.


Speaking of Christmas, today is Christmas Card Day and we’d love it if you’d grab one of ours.  We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and we’re thankful for all of you, each and every day.


What are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    You are such caring people, for furbabies and young humans alike!!!!

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog posts … sorry I have not been around to comment much. Hoping things calm down soon!


    Oh, what a grand idea for holidays and next year we will do it, too! Maybe even do a few this year as there is time left. We are thankful for your generous, kind mama and papa and you four BEEOUTIFUL kitties. Elegant are you!

    Your parents are such wonderful people to other humans and to all the furry ones out there. Love your Christmas card. We have not made ours yet this year.

  5. Lucy and Xena

    We absolutely love your card and wish you a Merry Christmas too! What a wonderful idea to buy toys throughout the year. Maybe we could suggest our peeps buy us (and the shelter) more treats throughout the year. Then, if the shelter didn’t want them, we could help out… XOX Xena, Lucy, Chia and Riely

    What a great idea! That would be the ultimate and handy way to collect things for the kids! I have a lot of beanie Babies from long ago in the 90’s when they were craze. I would like to donate them to the police dept. but don’t know if they would accept them.

    We’ve been doing toy drives for years and we also do the food banks. It’s good to give back to those in need. We are indeed so very fortunate.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches to all the kitties and my best to your wonderful and thoughtful peeps. ♥

    Wow! Your generosity is heartwarming! There will most definitely be smiles on faces Christmas morning. Each year my grand girls put together Operation Christmas Child boxes through Samaritan’s Purse. The boxes include necessities as well as fun items and then are mailed to children in third world countries. Love your Christmas card! Wonderful photos of the four of you. X

    What a sleigh full of wonderful gifts!!! That is so kind of your peeps. Our Mom and Dad take Christmas Angel cards from the tree at church and find gifts for boys and girls in need too. It really should be the season of giving.

    Thank you for the beautiful card! Pop used to spearhead the Toys for Tots drive at his place of business after the complany stopped doing it. He said his fave part of the holiday season was when the group of them dropped the toys off with the Toys for Tots Marines.
