~For the Severson Family ~
We sure have been very busy here at the Campbell house. Getting ready for winter, the house and the camp trailer. Gary is getting all the outside chores done before winter. All toys put away for the winter. Well not all , just the outside ones. The house is still full of toys every where.
Jody is busy teaching school and trying to get fleece blankets and wood signs made . So she will have enough to sell this winter. You can visit our mamabearsflleeceblankets~use the button on side bar.
or you can check out our E-Bay store. Mama Bears Fleece Blankets .
Alsocampbellscountrystore ~ use button on side bar. I am working on getting more signs on there soon.
All the children are doing well. We have had a few emergencies these last few weeks. I am sure ready for all of that to stop.
Now for the fundraisier~~~ We are going to leave it going until Nov 10th, The Severson Family still needs about 3,554. to be able to travel. They are at a crunch, they need to travel very soon. We are very THANKFUL for all the donations so far. But can you pass it on, we are hoping we can help get this family funded so they can travel within the next few weeks. Hopefully before Christmas. I would love to see pictures of him home with his family this year. Can we help make Srecko;s aka Scott's dreams come true. Don't you think that would be the best present ever.
PLEASE HELP US TO HELP THE Severson Family bring Scott aka ~ Srecko home.
I am starting a one dollar adoption fund for them. I would like to see if we can get everybody who reads the blogs to donate 1.00 for each family member you have in your current family or maybe for how many family members you still have at home. I will start it with our donation to add to the give away for the signs and the book. So please go to the chip in on the side bar and help us help the Severson Family.... Remember we will draw for the give away on Nov 10th . So we have 15 days to help get this family fully funded...Are you in for the challenge?? I sure hope so . This little guy doesn't need to wait any longer. Please help to bring him home..

We found out today that Jody aka Mom is being recognized as a woman of distinction in our town , she is one of several women being recognized for this honor, hopefully she will be chosen the number one woman. The local newspaper is doing a write up of all the women to publish in the newspaper including photos. She was nominated by our friend and realtor Denise with help from Gary aka Dad. It was very difficult to keep everything a secret these past few weeks, but Jody had no idea.Now everyone will know just how special Jody really is, she works 24/7 just being a wonderful mom to 10 (yes 10) children ranging in age from 30yrs old down to 15mos old, and a loving grandmother to all 8 with one on the way grandchildren. Jody also makes and sells fleece blankets and rustic signs in her spare (what's that) time.Her other job is being a lovingwife to me, she makes me tired just watching her every day, because I see what this great lady accomplishes every day.Congratulations on your recognition Honey, we don't think anyone deserves this more then you, thank you for all you do for not only your family but for everyone that needs anything . We think you are the greatest and we all love you sooo much, Love Gary aka Dad and all the kiddos and grandkiddos and yes Mom too P.S. she also homeschools all 7 of the little kiddos

If you all remember this little guy from our blog a year ago. We were in the process to bring him home. But then we had a family member that had been in a serious auto accident. We then let Scott go.
Well he found a family fast...
Tammy and Dan Severson were in country adopting there son Jovan and they new it was meant to be. That Scott was meant to be their son. So they committed to adopting him. Well they are still trying to get the funds to go and get him.
This week I am having a birthday party all week long for him. We would love to be able to raise the 4,000. they need to be able to travel .. Can you all help with a special gift for Scott. for his 7th birthday. What could be better to know that your Mom and Dad will be there very soon to get you and bring you to your forever home. Scott has spent all of his birthdays at the orphanage. Lets change that so next year he will spend his birthday at home with his family..
We are having a give away!! I make wood signs with sayings on them . I burn the saying onto the wood. They are really cool signs..I have made two signs to give away. But if you do not like the saying I can make what ever you want on the sign.
Now , in our family we give 25.00 for each birthday. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE AS MANY PEOPLE DONATE 25.00 OR WHAT EVER YOU CAN TO HELP SCOTT TO BE ABLE TO COME HOME.MY HOPE IS TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THIS FAMILY FULLY FUNDED BY FRIDAY SCOTT'S 7TH BIRTHDAY !!!
So if you all could help and re-post this to your blog that would help so much. ALSO PLEASE PRAY FOR THIS TO BE A VERY FRUITFULL, SO THIS LITTLE GUY THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO US CAN HAVE HIS FAMILY AND COME HOME.
WE PRAY THAT THIS WILL BE HIS LAST BIRTHDAY IN THE ORPHANAGE.
We have seen the beautful smile on his face . Our Bella and Chrissie are both from the same orphanage. I cannot wait to see the biggest smile ever for him to see his Mommy and Daddy show up to get him.
Please if you feel you can spare some funds to help this wonderful family bring their son home.Then go to the chip in and you can donate to Tammy and Dan to bring Scott home very soon..
Thank you all so much , remember to post it on your blog or facebook. Help spread the word..
After you donate, would you please come back and leave me a comment. That way i know who donated to put your name in the give away for one of my signs... I will be giving away two signs for Scott's Birthday Party this week!!!! Thank you all !!
