Starlight Christmas 2013

Starlight Children's Foundation is a non-profit global charity that partners with many different companies, to help improve the quality of life of families going through medical crisis, or facing life-long medical challenges.

Our family joined Starlight almost 3 years ago and we have been so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful organization, that truly cares and seems to understand how important it is to shake off all of the medical worries, take a night off....and just have fun!

We drove downtown to the amazing Sherman Event Center and our family was greeted by some cheery volunteers - who showed us to the party....The kids ran ahead, so excited.

Brooklyn refused to sit on Santa's lap.  She kept saying "He isn't real...He isn't real"...
She told me that Santa was like Jesus...."He lives in your heart...and makes you feel magical."

I couldn't argue with that, so we just enjoyed watching as the other kids hopped on Santa's lap.

Each of my kids got a special gift, marked with their names, which we took home to put under our tree.

The amount of love and detail put into the Starlight events truly make me feel blessed.  We are able to allow our guard to come down, and just enjoy an evening out as a family...Not worried about how much money we are spending (Starlight covers all costs), or having someone feeling left out.

Thank You Starlight, for helping to make our family feel so loved!
