Operation Christmas Child + Jillian

First, I wanted to remind you all that Operation Christmas Child is fast approaching.

Remember that I originally wrote about it here.

Well, National Pick Up Week is November 14-21

So, start packing your boxes asap.

Drop off locations are throughout the country and you can find them here.

We chose a boy and a girl......ages 2-4 each.  I have the labels sent to me automatically because we participate each year, but you can actually make your own or print them off the website, here.

We 'wrapped' from the interior this time.  I wanted them to look festive and fun, but they ask that you not seal your boxes.  I also used plastic boxes so that they can use them for storage after they open their gifts.

It's easy, folks!  Give it a try and I promise you won't regret the efforts.

Big update on Jillian's fun visit coming soon.  I'm swamped with work and kids and parent/teacher conferences.

Did want to share this pic, though.  Love.


Oh, and Carter's first basketball practice is tonight.  During tryouts, 4 other coaches tried to draft him just before the coach we wanted was able to. 

First pick, kids.  That's my boy.

Another great season ahead!

It's about time you posted something. Don't do that to us. We think something is wrong.

I love this idea! I'm kinda shocked that you are so giving and sweet. I'm gonna check Oklahoma out. Maybe they have a drop off for HELL.

What a sweet thing to do. I will check it out.

P.S. I mailed your turkey shirt today. It turned out soooo cute!

This looks like a great idea!!

And I cant wait for sports. We are pretty sure my son is going to be an awesome athlete (he will probably end up in the band like his mom much to his dad's dismay, ha!)
