If you hear tons of sirens or see a large police presence moving through Billings on Saturday (12/17) don't be alarmed. It's just the 3rd annual Shop with a Cop parade. Fifty local kids will get to enjoy a Christmas shopping spree, thanks to community fundraisers.
Paul had the story this morning about a new doll by Mattel that looks like singer Gloria Estefan. And we wondered if they had made a Sheryl Crow version.

My favorite toys as a child were Hot Wheels. I also had a few Matchbox cars and even got a "Johnny Lightning" car for Christmas one year.
Hot Wheels were always my favorites. Earlier this week, I saw an article on the toys turning 50 this year...
So here's the deal. You've probably begun your Christmas shopping you probably have no idea what to get OR your child has already asked 9,751 times for said toy. I'm just preparing you... You're welcome!
