Happy Easter! And Happy Birthday to my Ear!

As many of you know I have been as busy as the Easter bunny.  On Wednesday I delivered over 120 funny cakes! I enjoyed spending a couple minutes with most of you.  I wish I could have seen everyone.

  On Thursday we finished packing the buckets for CHOP.  I had to put stickers in the books and I also wrote my favorite bible verse in the book this time. I couldn't pick a short easy book to write, I had to pick Deuteronomy. We loaded the car up Thursday night so we could be at CHOP by 7:30.

I was disappointed when we got to the hospital though. They weren't working. Hopefully when I go in July I will get to see my nurses and their smiling faces.

Finally, Tomorrow is a very very special day. Happy Birthday to my ear!!

We're going to call this Fabulous Friday!

What a great day! I am going to tell you all about it. Mommy and I started out by picking Mommom up at 6:00am. They needed coffee so first stop was Dunkin. We had no traffic into Philly and arrived at 7:00. Perfect timing because we had two buckets to deliver. Our first bucket is actually there waiting for its new Mommy. Zoe is arriving to CHOP on 4/23. Our second bucket went to the cutest 3 year old boy. Kellan had heart surgery this week and wasn't feeling too good yet. Our little tiger was crying when I walked in. That made us all cry with him. But, when he saw Woofi he smiled!

We left their room and headed for my kidney ultrasound.  After that we had a 9:30 appt with my surgeon. I was nervous because the radiologist saw some white spots which mean stones. My Dr said everything looked good and he didn't think those white spots are anything to worry about. I do not have to go back for a year! Yippee!

Next stop.......Starbucks, my favorite place for a chocolate chip frappachino.

Onward to my family at the Clarke School for the Deaf! I love these teachers. I am where I am today because of them. They taught me how to listen, hear and speak. When you get an implant you don't just wake up and be able to hear. It takes lots and lots of therapy!  I stopped to give them a copy of the book I wrote. It was a special day at Clarke. It was grandparents day. I talked to all of them about the journey I have been on and gave them hope for the little ones that belong to them. They had to leave knowing their children are in good hands at Clarke.

It was such a great day from start to finish!

It Was a Pay It Forward Kind of Weekend!

Happy Happy Monday!

Have you ever read the book called, "Have You Filled A Bucket"?  If you haven't it is one of our favorite books.  When the bucket project first started we included that book inside each bucket.  A couple times the publisher actually donated all of them.  This book is about every person having a bucket and each person can fill buckets by making people  happy.  You can also be a bucket dipper and do not so nice things and empty other peoples buckets. 

Morgan has a bucket that is totally overflowing right now!!!!!  This past week was awesome with people filling Morgan's bucket.  It all started last weekend with the photographer giving almost 200.00.  We get home and she received a 100.00 donation in the mail.  On Friday night Morgan's mommy went to a painting class and some of the people at the class said, Oh, we follow Morgan's Magical Ears on facebook!  They were excited to meet her in person.  Morgan left there with a 20.00 donation.  When we got home Friday evening a car pulls up in front of our house and another bucket filler was there to give Morgan all the coloring books and crayons for the Easter drop off! Saturday morning Morgan bucket started to overflow.  She went to the bank to cash in the change that was donated to her bucket project.  Over 113.00 worth of change that was all donated by the most awesome bucket fillers in the world.  Morgan is so thankful for everyone helping make her bucket project a success! 

Funny Cakes are being delivered next Wednesday and Thursday.  Thank you to those that ordered these yummy sweets for your Easter weekend.

Have a wonderful week and remember be a bucket filler not a bucket dipper!

Love, Morgan and friends!!!!

Where is Spring?

Today is March 30th and it is a cold and rainy weekend.

All the 2nd graders at Pennview did our play last week.  We did it for our grandparents on Thursday. On Friday night we did it for the public. The play was Jonah and everyone loved it.

On Saturday Rylee and I got our pictures taken with live chicks and bunnies.  The very talented Joanna from Bountiful Babies in Center Valley did them. Joanna has a special place in our hearts. Joanna heard of Morgan's bucket project and decided to pay it forward herself. Joanna gave a portion of all her spring photo shoots to Morgan's bucket project. This project has done so much more than make chikdren smile. Heck, that alone would be enough. This project brings out such good in people. We came home from the photo shoot and found a crisp 100.00 bill in the mail box. It came all the way from Florida!

It is so awesome to see God working!

Morgan sold 125  funny cakes.  It will be fun to see all the people when we deliver them.

Bucket day is coming up! Morgan just finished writing her own book to put with the buckets. Hopefully we will find a publisher that might like to donate the printing of some books.  The book tells Morgan's story of how the bucket project came to life with lots of special pictures.

Today is CHOP Doctor Day. We honor Dr John Germiller, our hero!  He gave Morgan the miracle of hearing!

Love, Morgan's Magical Ears!
