Toys For Tots

What a great organization!

I was able to go out and take a few pictures of the Marines and the Coast Guard guys volunteering to collect toys for the little kids. On Friday I went around Noon and there were not many people delivering packages. I was going to be busy later that night at the local nursing home volunteering and would not be able to get some shots for when people were out of work.

I decided to head out Saturday after Shawn's basketball practice and it was really steady. It is great to see smiling faces when they drop off the toys. That is what Christmas is all about, giving and not expecting anything back. We don't always have to give in money, or spend a lot on gifts. It is just nice to have family together during the holiday and spend quality time with friends and family.

One thing that happened to me this week is that a friend of mine, Sherry, decided to drop of some goodies that she made. I had a couple. The caramels taste like a slow poke sucker and the kids ate all the rest of the goodies. Thanks Sherry.
Want to cheer someone, make some yummy treats and send it their way without them expecting it. That is the best!!!!
