CHRISTMAS GIVING BRINGS CHRISTMAS DREAMS

TIPS On Art has adopted a local family that could really use some help in Creating Their Dream, just enough to take the next step.

Dad, Pedro, is a painter and has his own business during the week and on the week-ends he is a lay-preacher, ministering to congregations in the Central Texas area. Mom works in a store and "tries" to keep up with four growing boys ages 13- 17. They all attend the Kyle school system, working to keep their grades up so that they can get into college or a trade school.

Family Goals:
Our Family goals are stability, that no matter what life throws at us we can stay united in harmony. Pedro has his painting business and his preaching, in everything he does it is for the family and the Church. The boys are just now getting out into building their own lives, Peter is into school and learning a trade, John has just found weight lifting and Daniel and Benjamin are into their PS3.

What we enjoy doing as a family:
We enjoy doing things as a family. We go fishing and trail walking, and when there is time, we like to watch movies.

Where we would like to be in 5 years:
I, we really want our kids to go to college or vocational school for whatever career they chose. We want them to be able to provide for their families.

What our family needs:
Our gas stove does not work. We use propane and we are using the stove that came with the trailer; all of my pots are now black and I am using a portable electric burner to cook on or we use the BBQ pit. We really need a large capacity washing machine, ours leaks and I put towels down for each load. We all sleep on the floor; we could use two sets of bunk beds, 4 boys, and a queen bed (just mattresses will work). Benjamin the youngest, is having joint problems because he does not have a bed. Pantry goods would be nice.

Here are a few things that they can use but anything can help:
