Arrow Santa in Bantayan 2015

It's that time of the year again..


...and I'm really hoping we can do something for the kids again this year.

Let me know if you all are wanting to do this again this year.

It sure is nice to bring smiles to all of the little ones that would never get a toy for Christmas as their family's just cannot afford it.

With the help and support of everyone here at the Barn we gave out toys to about 800 kids each year in the past.

Update Info:

If anyone wants to help out for the Kids Christmas this year... here is my Paypal email again below.

[email protected]

If they ask for a name it's in my wife's name as Irish Soon and country is Philippines.

Also If someone does not have a paypal account and wants to send a check... please PM Dixie for his address like last year.

Link to our first year with lots of photos.

https://www.thevettebarn.com/forums/o...tion-info.html

And last year with many photos also.

Also a neat read from Dixie's BantayanClaus FaceBook account

A few pics.

Got it and Thanks Ana!

Not sure yet.. maybe you?

I would love for someone from here to come visit us and be Santa this year, but know it's not exactly close for anyone.

I do know they would never forget it if they did, and it is an experience of a lifetime.


Anyone here want to come join us to be Santa this year???

Anyone??

If we had our paperwork done we would be coming home, but it will likely be next year before we make it home.

As much as I would love to visit the PI, it would probably not be this year.

I am pretty sure your new family will enjoy an American Christmas.

Yes, this will be totally new for them. I think the amount of food alone will be a bit embarrassing to me. We have so much here to be thankful for.

Good food and lots of it are never embarrassing. Leftovers rule!

Some of them are kinda rotten like this one here.. her name is Queenie

Shes a friend of mine's kid, and anytime I am at their house drinking Rhum with her Dad.. she and her brother are patting my pockets to see if I have any peso coins so they can go buy junk food..

If I have any... I usually give them to them, and usually they don't even have to ask.

She's a cute little brat!

It just wouldn't be the same without Dixie getting deathly ill and stealthily grabbing a bride.

My donation has been made via PP.

Hopefully the Christmas Celebration will be as good as last year's even though Rob, JC and MC will not be there.
