Ill see if I can find them and maybe give them to you this weekend if you are heading to Crystal Cove. If not the books Im sure I contribute a few other things :)

    Jordan,
    Thank you very much. Hopefully, they are still in new condition... :)
    I'm not sure whether or not I'll be going to CC this saturday just yet. I should be able to, but that is still up in the air at the moment.

    If you get a chance, you can also drop off the books/stuff at my front door toward the end of the week. I'll be coming back into town on Friday and can pick them up then.

    Thanks!
    Byron

    Byron,
    We just hit Target and came home with 2 baseballs, a Barbie doll and a Fisher Price toy. I'll be mailing them to the Make-A-Wish Office in Tustin in the morning. I'm sure I speak for all the kids by saying, "Thanks Byron for your effort!"
