It has been very busy around our house lately,never a dull moment. First of all our grandson Camren was in his very first Christmas program at school and we were brave enough to take all six of our little ones to enjoy it, everyone was well behaved the whole time and enjoyed the program. The only mishap was when Bella decided to throw up all over Mom & McKenzie, but everyone survived. You did a great job Camren and we are all so proud of you and love you very much
.On Saturday the 19th Dad and McKenzie were grocery shopping and donated a toy to the Toys for Tots program and after returning home and talking with Mom it was decided by everyone that we would like to help those less fortunate than us. Mom is Christmas shopping all year long so we have quite an inventory of toys and other items on hand all the time, so she cleared out her inventory and the kiddos donated it all to the Marine Corps for Toys for Tots, we estimated approx. $500.00 in toys and winter coats hats and gloves.Later on that afternoon the kids wanted to donate their money they have been saving to a homeless person, so off goes Dad and the four older kids to find a homeless person, we did find a homeless couple in front of Wal- Mart and handed them the can of money and wished them a Merry Christmas and the kids did notice the smiles on this couples faces. The kids were so proud of themselves for all this giving and learning the real meaning of Christmas. Kids Mom & Dad are so proud of all of you for thinking of others and we love each and everyone of you ,we have a very special family. I'm sure Santa will remember how thoughtful you have all been
