I absolutely love Operation Christmas Child. This is an organization that takes shoe boxes filled with gifts and delivers them all around the world to little children. Jason and I have always participated in this and now that we have 2 boys we let them go and pick out toys and necessities to fill their individual shoe boxes with. Don't get me wrong it can be difficult to keep them focused on buying stuff for someone else and not themselves.
Here are a few pics from our shopping and wrapping experience.
Once they finally understand that these are for little kids their age who don't have much at all, they really enjoy trying to pack their boxes and boy do we pack them full!!
