Operation Christmas Child

The time has come to do our Operation Christmas Child again this year.  We love doing this and going shopping as a family to collect things for our little box.  Drew has done this since he was born and now Camden gets to join in on the fun.  This year was a little hard for Drew and a tough lesson to learn while shopping.  After a little talking to him and him understanding none of the stuff was for him, he started to get happy and find things for "his friend". 

This year both boys had to get the same thing for their "friends".  Drew wanted them to even have the same color of everything we got.  Their boxes included
- crayon book/crayons/sticker set
-toothbrush/toothpaste set in a bag
-tennis ball (of course)
-fleece blanket
-water bottle
-duplo legos
-toy car
-3 pairs of socks
-eating utensils

We have to get creative when packing these things.  The duplo legos were stuffed into the water bottle and the crayon book set was taped to the lid.  We try to fit as much as we can inside the shoe box sized plastic bins.  We hope we bring smiles to two little boys faces and that our box blesses them in more ways then we can imagine.
