giving hope

my sis-in-law and i decided that instead of our kids giving toys to each other for christmas this year, we would do something a little different.

so we filled a shoebox and sent it to operation christmas child. instead of sending yet another toy to wyatt, amelia, and abby... we sent this shoebox to a little boy somewhere in the world who otherwise wouldn't get anything for christmas.

it was really fun to pick out all this stuff with isaiah and sarah. i explained to them that we were doing it for a kid who doesn't have much. i loved teaching them about how blessed we really are.

another thing we did for each of my brothers & their wives for christmas was make donations in their names to charity water.

2 people who do not have access to clean water will receive clean water for 20 years.
