Operation Christmas Child

Since the start of the Christmas season we have been trying to talk to the kids about the real meaning of Christmas. They have such sweet, tender hearts! So this year we decided to do Operation Christmas Child. We all went to Rite Aid and let the kids pick out fun things for their boxes. They each picked a box and a child. We talked a lot about the kids these boxes were going to, how they don't have toys, soap, clothes. They were SO sad. They just ask over and over why these kids don't have anything. Great teaching opportunity!
 We came home and had fun packing the boxes. Blake helped me take them to drop off a few days later. He got juice and cookies and was sure to tell the other thing to work on! :) They also picked out toys to give to Toys for Tots at the local grocery store. They didn't even ask for their own toys. Love these kids!
