When family moves away, they are so much more appreciated when able to visit. And even more excitement is to be had when there’s a new little one is involved! J-Three will be introduced later. He did have fun meeting Ada, who is his age. 😉
Operation Christmas Child is one of my all-time favorite things to do. I plan and shop all year long (with help!) for one night in November, just before Thanksgiving, when my whole church comes together to fill GO (Gospel Opportunity) boxes to send out through Samaritan’s Purse.
This year, with the help of many people (buying, filling, building boxes, setting up and cleaning after everything was done), we sent 200 GO boxes to Zambia!
One of my closest friends (and cousin!) was able to be in town with her family for this event, and her two-year-old was all about getting those boxes packed in the cartons to be sent to the Processing Center.
