the season to give

as if all the gifts thoughtfully picked out
and showered on the kids wasn't enough,
nana and pa had one more special thing planned.
each child was given a budget of $50,
and with this generous amount
they were able to pick out items at the store
to give to the food bank for those in need.
addy, landon, oliver, and cousin gabi
armed with shopping carts,
lists of needed food items,
and calculators,
went up and down every aisle
scooping up and adding up food,
all beaming with the gesture of charity.
the kids had so much fun!
this was the perfect activity to get them in the spirit of giving.
we will remember this for a long time.
thanks pa & nana!!
