Last year, our Church was doing Operation Christmas Child and we asked McKayla if she wanted to do it. Not surprisingly, she was immediately all for it.
So off we went to Dollar Tree (the only place to get a LOT of fun stuff to cram in the box). We picked a girl and we sent her a Bible, a hair brush, a 3D mosaic alligator (McKayla HAD to get it....wouldn't take "no" had to get it LOL), soap, toothbrush, fuzzy socks, hair bands, hair clips, a couple coloring books and crayons, a reading book and a stuffed penguin. We bought so much, we barely got the lid to close LOL
We included this beautiful card and McKayla left her touch. We also included our address in case she wanted to write us back.

to Someone So Special
I opted to pay for the postage online and by doing so (and my reason for doing so), I was able to track roughly where our package landed. Ours was sent to a little girl, about McKayla's age, in the Ukraine. I hope that she'll write us a letter back, not so much b/c I want the thanks.....that's not why we do this......but b/c I think it'd be neat for McKayla.
