Better to Give...

It is better to give than to receive...
and Chris and I had a BLAST this past week buying Christmas items for a "Angel Tree" family through the school where Chris teaches.
I felt like a happy elf with all the wrapping and my hubby was impressed with how quickly it was done!
 We were on cloud nine with the privilege of buying presents for this family.

I confess, that we have had our share of arguments in this first married Christmas about the shopping budget for friends and family... but shopping for this family, there was nothing to argue about.
Santa has the best job
We felt so fortunate to be in a position to be able to shop for this family... and shop for children.

We both became choked up at one point or another of this shopping process because we were so excited, emotional, tired, thrilled to be sharing the Christmas spirit with this family.

Even the animals loved the gift-wrapping commotion
