It's begining to look alot like christmas!

So I am so excited this year for parents are here it just give me a true feeling of joy to have them near I had missed them so much! So on alighter note I got my whole house decorated last week...I know I was a little slow but I finally found the time and I did it! I have pics of that and of our thanksgiving but of cours my camera is in the car...BOO!!! The kids are all very excited about chirstmas this year and the lights every time we drive by a house that is decorated they ohhh that is pretty ya they thinks it is candy but what they hay! We are going to chirtmas village tonight in ogden I am super excited I loved it when I was a child and I think my kids are going to love it too!!! SO this year we just didn't have the money to spend on chirtmas like we normally do but I still think we got them a really great christmas and I have been talking to the kids about how it is better to give then recieve and that there are familys and children that won't even get one gift this year and that we need to help as much as we can so we had alot of old toy and toys that they never really play with any more so we put them all together and put an add up on ksl in the free section they were gone with in a few hours and it felt so amazing to see this ladies face light up when she picked up the box she said thanks you so much and have a merry christmas it was AMAZING!
Well merry christmas every one and have a happy new year!!!

Merry Christmas Jess!
I never thought about putting stuff in the free section. I didn't even realize there was such a thing! Thanks for the tip! I usually donated to the D.I. or the Salvation Army, but then people still have to pay for them.

I did that same thing with our toys that the kids have grown out of and don't use. Such a wonderful experience! I wrote about it on my blog too. Felt so good to help a family.
