Happy New Year everyone… And happy birthday Dad!! xoxox We miss you so, but look at how you live on!!

We hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday, and we’re looking forward to what 2015 will bring!  Along with our normal ‘pop up at anytime’ random acts… we’re also excited about what the rest of 2015 will bring! As Canada Day is one of Gary’s favorite holidays, we will be going out with boxes of fun surprises spreading excitement and joy!  Location will be announced the day before, in keeping with our theme of secret surprises… tee hee hee… so check back if you wanna join us for some fun!

We are also tentatively planning on having our fundraiser in early October this year.  Please let us know what you preferred for this event — Rumors? Bud and Spud?
