Retired Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Mike Alstott talks with Nikolaus Milligan, 7, of New Port Richey, as they stuff cotton into an opening while making a stuffed monkey Wednesday afternoon during the sixth annual "Stuff-N-Fluff" party in conjunction with Valentine's Day for more than 50 young patients at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg. Also present was Nikolaus' older brother, Nathaniel Milligan, 9, and his mother, Wendi Milligan. The brothers, who both made stuffed monkeys, made a stuffed bear for their little sister, Chevelle-Roseann, 2. Patients unable to attend the party were supplied with a stuffed animal making kit. Alstott and his wife, Nicole, helped the children select, stuff and outfit a teddy bear or other animal of their choice. The children also had the opportunity to decorate their own cookies and create Valentine's Day cards.
