August Update:

This evening was such an amazing one.
Last month we went out to Big Springs Ranch for Children to take portraits of the little girls from one of the cabins. They were all ready and dressed up! We had such an amazing time that we had to go back and do it again!
Today we took photos of the boys and you know how boys don’t really love taking photos but with a little time, some good pizza from Broadway 830 & some hyping up from some amazing women. The boys got so excited for it. They all wanted photos! They did poses from their favorite super hero’s and even the older boys enjoyed it! It was so much fun!
They did not want us to leave. 😭
Before we left we went to the little girls cabin again to deliver their photos. The amazing Kimberly Fulton Huffstutlerpulled together some people to sponsor each little girl to get them blankets with their photos on it. If you haven’t had one of these blankets made they are such a sentimental gift! We had took a group photo of all of them as well and those were on the blankets to. It made great memories. When we delivered those blankets …you should of seen how much those little girls faces lit up the room.
👏🏽In that exact moment I felt so blessed to be apart of this amazing group Chicktime Smalltown!!!!
I have to say thank you so much to the beautiful & talented Tara Maxey Photography for designing & getting these blankets made and also for helping take some beautiful portraits! They were absolutely beautiful.
If you would love to give back to your community & spread love where love is needed. Then please join us on our next workshop. It is amazing and it will set a flame in your heart for these beautiful kids. We hope to see you at the next one! Message me on how to get involved! It is super easy.
Thank you Evett Gallardo, Norma Jean Sandoval Dolly Schultz Lisa Bailey for attending this workshop with us. You ladies are a blessing! 😭 Thank you for being apart of Chicktime Smalltown!

March Update:

Our March workshop leader went way overboard on love and activities and we can’t stop looking at the pictures shared with by Big Springs Ranch! Don’t they just make you smile!
Games, arts and crafts, painting, and coloring with the new donated supplies kept kids busy from multiple cabins!
Then it was time to get active again…
the kids went to the ranch gym with their toys from Chicktime! Lots of good movement and release of energy! The kids even connected two jump ropes to make one big one, allowing the girls to jump two at a time. FUN!!
The Chicktime Easter Bunny even brought lots of treats for the kids one morning.
We hear the kids were totally immersed in JOY thanks to Chicktime !!

February Update:

Hey Chicktime Smalltown!
These are photos of our February drop off workshop! It’s a wonderful art project! More photos are coming of the girls working on this large art project!! Since we can’t be on campus ( yet) we have to be patient, but that’s so hard! We want to be there doing the art project with them. Let’s keep reminding ourselves… This too will pass and soon our workshops will be in person!!
Big shout out to Sharron Carnes ( pictured here) handing off to Houseparent Debra at Big Springs Ranch! We are also grateful for Sandra Hopper and Carol Kothmann for helping put this workshop together! You three women are nothing short of AMAZING !!

January Update:

We are starting the new year off with tons of fun!!
Lisa Bailey , our Chicktime Smalltown January workshop leader, provided this project of decollage creations where the girls made candle holders and more!!
She also provided homemade granola bars for all cabins, a very big hit!!

December Update:

Chicktime Smalltown dropped off Christmas goodies/crafts a little early to make sure the precious kids at the Ranch just feel our love for them in a HUGE way!

November Update:

Thanksgiving love drop off at the Ranch..
Each house got a basket of projects~model building for older boys, rock painting and construction projects for younger boys aromatherapy/bath bombs/soap making for older girls, origami & pillow making for middle and younger girls and canvas/paint/and brushes for everyone! Snacks and fresh fruit for all too!
Whew! Thank you Chicktime Smalltown for standing in the gap!

October Update:

Aren’t fresh fruits and vegetables so beautiful?
We will always collect gift cards from HEB to keep purchasing them for the kids at Big Springs Ranch Children’s Home! So even if we don’t ask… buy the gift card and we will use it !

September Update:

So many good- for – you meals the kids at Big Spring Ranch could make with these simple things! Banana smoothies…baked potatoes… cucumber slices with a little lime or lemon juice sprinkled on top…
It’s the little things we take for granted that they desire so much. We will keep asking for your help because we love them that much! Dropping off fresh veggies and fruit is the highlight of our month on behalf of Chicktime Smalltown…

August Update:

Loving the kids at Big Springs Ranch for Children is so much fun.

Thank you to all who make this drop off possible.

Feeling so grateful!

Chicktime Smalltown had these cute bags monogrammed for the high school graduates who live at Big Springs Ranch! The thank you note speaks volumes to the love the kids feel when Chicktime shows up for them!

How easy is this? Run by Walmart and pick up a few!

 

 

Chicktime Smalltown is busy, busy, busy this month! This month, we are asking for donations of home goods with the children’s cabins but we would also really appreciate if someone could come in a help wrap gifts for the children!  The children are also putting on their first Christmas play and we could really use help with all of the behind the scenes stuff!

We hope you all have a merry Christmas!

 

Chicktime Smalltown is dedicated to serving the children of Big Springs Ranch. In addition to the previously posted items on our website that we are collecting this month, we are asking for your help with a surprise for the children! The children REALLY want to be able to carve pumpkins for fall but as you all know, pumpkins are expensive. We would appreciate a donation of pumpkins to the Ranch and for someone to come in and help the children carve them!

If you would like to help us fill this request, please contact Brianne at bsadmin@hctc.net today!

Happy New Year to the Wonderful Women of Chicktime.

And a big Thank You for your generous and faithful support.

 

The children of Big Springs enjoyed a warm and safe Christmas, with plenty of gifts and support from everywhere. Chicktime has been blessed with many new mentors who are spending time with the children at the ranch and in their Homes.  What a blessing.

 

We have been contacted by the leaders of the ranch and they have a big “need”.  They are in need of their own Ranch Van. Presently Hill Country Youth Ranch provides Big Springs with vans for each home.  Due to financial constraints these vans are Only allowed to travel to Uvalde and Kerrville.  So, if there is ever a desire for any of the homes to go to a Christian retreat, Special event in San Antonio, etc.  the ranch is restricted.  They very much desire a van for these special occasions.  A group of Chicktime women have already raised $17,000 towards the van.  We are now looking for the remaining $7000 to make the purchase.  If you have any desire to help us in this effort, please contact Kim Huffstutler at kim@sijet.com 830-591-7776 or Jan Elliott mamajan@wildblue.net 830-591-4795.

 

Blessings for a Fabulous New Year!

During this Christmas season, let us all remember what this season is really about and rejoice in HIS birth!

November 2014

 Sugar Cookie decorating and Self Portraits
On March 15 I was blessed to attend an activity with the girls of Big Springs Ranch. We did self-portraits with water colors.  Art is not one of my best talents, so I was glad several of the girls gave me good advice. They seemed to enjoy doing this. After that, they decorated sugar cookies. I was impressed with their inventiveness. The girls loved gobbling up their cookies. It was a good bonding experience for all. Thank you Beth Downing for hosting.

February Valentine’s
What a special morning we had with Sister’s Gina, Angeles, and Delores and their special friend Kyara on February 8 at Bee Creek on the Ranch.  Love was in the air and it was rich and thick!
The Sister’s brought a special video about what friends are even if they are different and then Sister Delores discussed the meaning with the girls.  The Valentine story was told, songs with the motions were enjoyed by all and a little Valentine craft was done to share with someone special.
We want to thank our special friends “The Teresian Sister’s” for their very loving hearts toward the children of Big Springs Ranch and Chicktime, what a wonderful time we had with them and look forward to many more like it.

June’s Activity

 

Chicktime Smalltown cooling down with the girls of BSRC!  The wonderful girls and awesome house parents traveled to Uvalde June 27th to enjoy a swim at Live Oaks Bed and Breakfast.  There was a lot of spashin, jumpin and diving!  And after their swim they were hungry, of course.  I think the girls really enjoyed the chicken wings, veggies and fruit because there wasn’t much left!  The time was too short as it always is and as always the blessing came to us.  Watching them just being children is joy unspeakable.  Please join with Chicktime in praying and serving the hurting wherever you are.

 

The House Parents & Life Guards!
