Weekend Fun

This is what we have been up to this last week.

The kids and I have had a blast filling our Operation Christmas Child boxes.

We've also offically starting listening to Christmas music.

We took our family picture today...with the timer...and a two year old....and a squirmy seven year old.
It was eventful. Pictures to come. :o)

Yay for Samaritan's Purse!!!

And SHAME ON YOU for listening to Christmas music ALREADY! :)
(Mark SO wants to, but I keep telling him he'd better not...)

Thanksgiving is in October in Canada...that's how I justify it :o)
And believe me it took me along time to not wait till after American Thanksgiving to bring out the Christmas music.
I actually find I enjoy Christmas more because I don't feel like I am cramming everything into one month but 6 weeks.

We LOVE OCC! I was so excited that Meg was old enough to pack a box of her own last year without freaking out because the stuff in it was for someone else. :)

I can't wait to fill our boxes next week!

We did our boxes up last week, for the first time ever. My kids were still kind of in the "but we're sending that to who, and why can't I play with it?" phase, but it was still good. Although I'm super impressed with how much you crammed in there!

I hear ya Holly,

When we started it was a fight to get the lid closed here too. :o)

And as for cramming it in...I always take a box with me when we go shopping to see if stuff will fit.
