Operation Christmas Child

Well we meet again. Sunday. Lately, I have grown to dislike Sundays. Even though it is a day of rest, do we even really rest? I would say no. We are busy getting everything together for the work week ahead of us. It's almost as if we can't relax. Do y'all feel that way? Anyways, Sunday is the 7th day and we should take at least a moment to relax. Thus, here I am writing to you guys with coffee in hand flavored with Cinnabon Creamer. Need I say more?

Today, I packed 2 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child? Do y'all know what that is? If you click the link, you can read more about it. Every year Samaritan's Purse organizes a shoebox drive for children who do not get Christmas presents. You can pack your shoebox with games, toys, candy, soap, etc. You get the picture. I did one for a boy and one for a girl. They have said in the past that usually the older kids do not get as much because everyone buys for the younger kids. I always do my boxes for the 10-14 age range. It is so fun to participate! If y'all want to, there is still time! They have to have the boxes by early November so that they can all be processed and organized and sent to their destinations. It is an awesome way to brighten a child's life. Here are my 2 boxes!

Girl box!
Boy box!

Here is quick video for y'all to watch.
