The House of Hills is once again participating in the
Our goal is to give something EVERY day of the month. Big or small, every give is a gift to someone! Join the giving with us. We’d love to hear what you’re doing.
Today was preparation day! Tomorrow is my big Operation Christmas Child Birthday Party, and there was lots to do to get ready.
Maggie and I went to do a little shopping at Walmart. We found several matching outfits on the $1 rack, and were so excited about adding those to the boxes.
I was so proud of my girl. She puts a portion of all the money she makes through her allowance and odd jobs aside to give to others. She had been saving for an entire year for this year’s shoe boxes and had $100 to spend. That was enough to pack five boxes, including the shipping.
After the two of us filled the mini-van with bags from Walmart and the Dollar Store, we headed home. Poor Hubby had to work.
But, several friends my Small Group helped us organize all the goodies from my tubs in the garage.
Then we put together the 100 boxes I’d ordered from Operation Christmas Child.
By the time we went to bed that night, we were ready for a fun OCC party in the morning.
