Last night I went to the kids school to watch their Christmas program.  I am so thankful for a school who still recognizes the Christmas season.  The program was adorable!  They also took the opportunity to display some of the kids' art.  Such talent hanging in the halls!

This weekend we plan to hit the streets and practice our giving.  Are you getting geared up too?  Here are some more ideas.  Have a great weekend friends!

12 Days of Giving

31.  Host a cookie exchange.  Everyone bakes a batch of cookies and comes together to plate them up.  Then divide up into cars and go deliver them.  Think of the seniors who aren't able to get out much, or maybe even the local hospital.  A surgery waiting room would be a great place.

32.  Have your kids clean up their rooms and donate the gently used toys to the local homeless shelter.

33.  Surprise the teacher's lounge with a box of bagels.

34.  Take a cup of hot chocolate to the Salvation Army bell ringer.

35.  Invite a new family over for dinner.

“For it is in giving that we receive.”
