Ways to give back durring the holidays..

So, I am sitting here reading thru the blogs I like to follow when I came across the following article: giving back and it has really inspired me. This blogger has a list of ways to help others this holiday season. I know we are all having to cut back this year, but think of how much worse things could be. We should be so happy for the things that we do have. So I invite everyone to join me in doing something good this holiday season~no matter how big or small. Some times its just the little things that can make a difference. So I plan on us sitting down as a family and deciding on a few things that we can do this holiday season. I will report back to everyone on what we do and would love to hear what you all are doing as well.

I know that I am going to do the following for sure:

*go thru our pantry and donate any unopened items that I know we will never use(not sure why I got some of them in the 1st place) I know that Kroger and many other stores have bins at the front of there stores for the local food bank so they make it very easy to help.

*donate some of Austin's toys that he has out grown as well as some clothes to local shelters.

I will post other things as we decide upon them.
