Operation Christmas Child

Chippey didn't do anything too exciting today--he's just hanging out in the tree, so I'm going to post about something else.

We participated in Samaritan's Purse, Operation Christmas Child this year with our church.  The goal was to send 500 boxes from Bethany and I'm pretty sure we surpassed the goal.

I figured it's never too early to get our little ones thinking that not everyone has it as good as they do and it's important to not be selfish and give to others.  I was definitely interested to see how Reese would react to going on a shopping trip to pick all of this fun stuff out and then realize it's not for her.  Well, she embraced it and had a blast selecting fun and useful things for someone else.  In fact, she wanted to get a lot more for someone else, but we were dealing with a shoe box to fit everything in, so we had to call it quits after a while.
Do you see a theme here?  She likes Hello Kitty.
 She was so proud to take her box and deliver it at church all by herself.  We will be tracking our package to determine exactly where and who it lands with and I'm sure this will become a tradition.
