Operation Christmas Child

Drew and I went shopping today for our Christmas child.  I use to do this when I was a kid at my church and now I am letting Drew shop for a kid.  We chose a 2-4 year old boy since that was the closest age range to him.  Boy did he love holding all the fun things we picked out for our little boy.  After shopping a little before lunch and nap time and then heading back up to finish filling up what little space we had left after nap this is what we ended up with.

Our little one is getting a blanket,toy tools, toy school bus, sippy cup, colorful band aides, toothbrush and toothpaste packet that comes with stickers, beach ball, sticker book with crayons, 4 packs of gum, 3 pairs of spider man socks, chap stick, comb, tennis ball and plastic golf ball (added after the picture).

One of the church members gave me the great idea of getting a plastic Tupperware box for them to reuse instead of a shoebox.  I had pinned a link on Pinterest about what to get a child for their shoe box and looked there for great ideas.  I also used some of my own thoughts as to what Drew and his friends like to play with.  I wish I could fit so much more in the box.  I had a hard time trying to fit what we did buy in there.  Next year we might buy a little bit bigger Tupperware box! 

Here is the box all packed up and ready to go!

 Drew enjoyed looking in it and seeing what his Christmas child would be receiving.

Merry Christmas to a sweet little boy we will never meet!
