Make-A-Wish Send Off Dinner


The Make-A-Wish people held a send off dinner for Kerstin this evening. Kerstin got to chose the place (Valentino's) and she got to invite a few friends and family. Kerstin's grandparents from Colorado even made the trip. Jane and Penny from Make-A-Wish gave Kerstin her itinerary and a bag full of goodies to use on the trip. We are definitely getting excited now that we have gotten the itinerary and have seen all the great stuff they have planned for us to do while we are there. (To see more pictures of the dinner, click on the title "Make-A-Wish Send Off Dinner".) We just wanted to thank everyone from Make-A-Wish, and all of our friends and family who continue to bless our lives.

Hey Kerstin!
We just got back from our big summer trip so I thought I'd check up on you and leave you a message. And WOW you've grow a lot a hair since the last time I saw you! Sometime if you feel in a goofy mood you should do something crazy with it that you couldn't do with longer hair, like put lots of hair gel in it and make it all spikey or something! :) just an idea.
It looks like you've had a lot going on and been having a great summer! I'm so happy for you guys and your big Make-A-Wish trip! I know you will make lots of memories and I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. I'll be praying for you and your whole family!

Bags of goodies are ALWAYS cool too.

Sorry we missed it.

Hey Kerstin,
Where do I sign up for hula lessons after you come home? Are you going to teach me how to do the hula? I just got back from Florida and Uncle Jay and the boys are in Chicago. Jeremy made them all go to a show last night called the Blue Man Group. We'll have to see if Uncle Jay liked it or if he is an old man now. I can't wait to hear all about your trip to Hawaii. What fun things are you planning to do? We'll be looking for new pictures of you on the web. I'm really liking the new hairdo. It is a great summer style!!
