3 Days and Counting ...

Last night we delivered gifts to the family we had adopted for Christmas. We were joined by our family friend, Jen and some friends from church, Dawn S., and her son Aiden. I think it truly hit home the sentiment ... "it is so much better to give than to receive". Even our children were so excited to deliver all the gifts we had so carefully chosen and wrapped.

Many of our friends generously added to what we had already done ... giving clothes and toys for all the children. My good friend, Dawn S. organized collecting a huge car load of baby clothes and items for the new baby due in the home any day. Lexi had a Christmas Party with many of her homeschool friends and they wrapped almost all of the gifts themselves that we brought to the family last night.

What a wonderful way for us to teach our children the true meaning of Christmas.
