Carney Christmas

Last week, I had the pleasure of offering a tour of our mission to three special donors. The Carney kids, Caden, 8, Micaela, 6, and Ava, 4, are a trio of bright, refreshingly-curious donors who love to help others. They visited Infant Crisis Services to deliver $439.50 – the total amount of money they collected from their Christmas lights show in Edmond. The show, which ran from Nov. 24, 2011, until Jan. 6, 2012, featured a magical display of lights that danced to traditional Christmas songs like “O’ Holy Night” by David Phelps and “Silent Night” by Sinéad O’Connor as well as new favorites like “Christmas with a Capital ‘C’” by Go Fish and “Wizards in Winter” by Trans-Siberan Orchestra.

It was an unexpected treat to meet three children who are knowledgeable of not only their blessings, but the fact that they should use their blessings to bless others in need. Thank you, Caden, Micaela and Ava! Because of your efforts, we will be able to provide formula, food and diapers to needy babies and toddlers in our community.

You can watch videos of the songs on the Carney family’s website,

Caden, 8, Ava, 4, and Micaela, 6, deliver money they collected from their Christmas lights show in Edmond to Jo Jones, director of development and communications, last week. They collected more than $400.

’ve been going to carney’s for over 30 years. We go to both Hollywood & Studio City. I have aalwys enjoyed the dogs, taken the kid’sthere & introduced others. We live in the San Fernando Valley. A few days ago my wife and I had to go to the Hollywood area & thought it would be great to stop @ Carney’s for dinner. We were looking foward to it for a few days. Unfortunatly the hot dogs were old tasting and kind of burnt. I’m not one to complain so i didn’t say anything to the workers. But now I wish I had. I have never been disappointed in the food at Carney’s til then. Well Thanks for listening.

To the person who sgsgeuted what's wrong with changing your mind ummmmm Are people that uninformed? He didn't just change his mind He's been LYING TO EVERYONE!! Huge difference Did anyone read the book Sinclair wrote years ago? And the two choir people who turned up dead? And the fact tha he belonged to a gay club ummm No, he didn't changed his mind he FINALYY got his back up against the wall. My guess if someone said they'd expose him if he didn't come out and say that..He didn't change his mind either about our attack on our embassy. He blatently LIED about that too If the news in the UK knew something was going to happen (and yes, do some research!!) and we were warned (DO MORE research!) then he'd rather fly a plane to Hollywood l- Tell me of another president who has spent so much money Preening in front of th TV Yo Bud!! Ya gota job to do a country to run..l

Oh really Cupcake. When it comes to security measures and having the necessary tools for the defense of an embassy or a consulate, where exactly is the difference there Mr. Wizard?When a standing United States Ambassador is explicitly asking for help for fear of an attack, exactly what the fuck difference does it make if its an embassy, a consulate or a toll booth? As far as us defending it, it makes no difference what so ever Sunshine. As far as the Braniacs that want to secede over half the country is filled with twatwaffles like you that will stand up for the left no matter how fucking retarded and in the wrong they are. Why would we not want to break away from that?
