Operation Christmas Child 2011

It's that time again for Operation Christmas Child.  We made two shoe boxes this year, both for 2-4 year old boys. 

I let Will pick a couple of toys for each box.  He picked stuffed dinosaurs and some cars.  I added coloring books, crayons, a Bible characters matching game, toothbrush, toothpaste, combs, t-shirt, and flip-flops.  I cleaned a cabinet our recently and found some leftover birtday goodies, so we added those as well.  After we got everything in, we could barely close the boxes!

This year we were able to participate in something special because our church was an official collection center and my mom was the coordinator for our center.  On Wednesday of last week we got to work at the collection center.  It was a ot of fun. 

Here is Will taking his boxes into the collection center:

As of Saturday night, we had collected over 550 shoe boxes. 

Will was helping Mawmaw count all the boxes.  Too bad he only knows how to count to 13.

We love Operation Christmas Child.  I hope Will continues to enjoy making the shoe boxes and learns about what it means to give to others who are less fortunate.
