I was lucky enough to become a dad in February to a daughter named Harper. She has already gone through a lot of stuff including an open heart surgery at a week old. She's thriving and doing well which is amazing.
I wanted to take some time to share this photo of being able to get her a proton pack of her very own. I am keeping this in the box and giving her the pleasure of opening it herself one day. This will go well with the Little Tykes ECTO-1 that is 75% complete for her. (When we found out the news that she was on the way, I worked on one and it's just missing the light bars and a few finishing things.)
While we were in at Children's Minneapolis, my fire department did a benefit fundraiser for Harper that included a silent auction. We were very fortunate to have Sony Pictures' Ghost Corp office donate a prize package to the silent auction.
I got the prize package ironically enough as my father, father-in-law, and co-worker all bid on the package with the intent to give it to me but were unaware that it was a group effort with the same intentions!
The package included an exclusive Ghost Corp only "Ghostbusters" beanie hat and the Ghostbusters & Ghostbusters II blu-ray set with a Slimer statue. I was happy to get the package and haven't opened the blu-ray set as I think it's cool that it came from Ghost Corp. As for the hat, oh, I am so wearing that in the winter!
Even cooler than the package sent was this letter that Eric Reich from Ghost Corp sent me:
I am so excited to share all things Ghostbusters with her and at 3 months old, she is amazed by the ECTO man cave. The lights, the amount of items, and the characters like Stay Puft are all amazing to her.
|Yours truly and the wee one. My hat is from the Stay Puft BBQ set, hers is a custom knit job from a friend.|
