Operation Christmas Child - Sunday School Party
Yesterday, we had our Sunday School Christmas party. We decided that we would put boxes together for Operation Christmas Child, so we had to have our Christmas party early.
We have an AMAZING group of preteens this year! I just love them.
They are silly and sweet.
After church, we went to Pizza Hut for the buffet and then we all headed to Wal-Mart.
I had the boys with the help of Kaylee's father, Travis. Abbey took part of the girls' group, and Candace took the other half. D'ann and Lee Ann helped them.
They were so much fun to watch shop. They were also very generous so we were able to blow past our original goal of 20 boxes and head straight to 31 boxes.
Look at all this loot!
Here's some of the items for the girls' boxes.

The assembly line.
Becca made sure that Reed had a learning experience as well.
We pray Reed will always be a generous giver.
So great to see preteens' happily, gladly, generously giving to other preteens in parts of the world that are less fortunate.
