Operation Christmas Child

We have loved participating in Operation Christmas Child for years. This year we deliberately chose to do less boxes (11) so we could put more quality into each one.....

In the past four years we participated with an offering as it was silly to ship boxes from Japan to America to be sent overseas - more bang for the donation to send money. THIS year we're enjoying personally shopping for each box.

We went shopping and  packed boxes this morning. Unfortunately, we needed more things so we went shopping again. ::snort:: We think we need to buy a few coloring books and we'll be finished.

We wanted to be done before tomorrow so we could take any of our extra things to the Chapel Children's packing party in the a.m.

Michael's job, other than financing the adventure, was deflating soccer balls which went in a box with a pump and a few other goodies.

Choosing Joy!

On our list for this week. I collect things all year long, so I have no idea how much we still need to get or not.

We used to save throughout the year - now that we're not moving and can actually pack boxes....I need to do this for next year. Thanks for the reminder Debbie. Good idea.
