Family, Food, Football--Thanksgiving!

I honestly dont know how to organize these pictures on here! Thanksgiving was great! We stayed at Jackie and Ricky's in Magnolia. Wednesday night we arrived in South Arkansas and were so tired from the drive! Thursday we woke up and watched the Macy's Parade and had Thanksgiving with Russell's family. It was good, of course! Thursday night, we went to Camden and visited with my sister, brother-in-law and of course--my favorite kids I absolutely LOVE to spoil: my nephew and niece, Logan and Lauren! Russell and I had a fun activity planned for them. We made turkeys made out of candy and also lil cornucopias too! They did a great job! I am so thankful for so much! God is so good! The rest of the weekend we relaxed and watched that Razorback game! GO RAZORBACKS! Now Russell and I are home! And I wish these pictures were more organized!

Operation Christmas Child

Every November, I participate in a very special project from Samaritan's Purse called Operation Christmas Child. It is so very special to my heart. What you do is fill a shoe box with small toys, hard candy or coloring books, ect. for a little girl or a little boy. Then you can wrap it and give the box to participants who take care of transporting it. I never have found out where my shoe box went, but I trust that the children who recieved them, felt so very happy. Last year, Russell helped me fill a shoe box for a little girl. Tonight, we are going to Wal Mart to pick out things for this year's shoe box. I cannot help it, but even when I am at Wal Mart picking out toys, socks, etc. I start to tear up and almost cry because I know that precious child will be SO grateful for it and it's not very much to us but it means a lot to them! Russell and I will get a lot out of it this year, I'm sure!
