Selah, Adden, and I got a chance to go to the Dollar Store today and buy gifts for Operation Christmas Child. Selah found gifts for a little girl her age that would fit in a shoebox (a pink bear just like her own, crayons, stickers, a coloring book, toothbrush/paste, hair bows, etc.) and Adden - well, Adden just sat in the cart as we piled gifts on top of him. We did buy gifts that we thought a boy (a bit older than Adden) would like though (cars, a coloring book, stickers, a football, car stamps, that paddle thing with a ball attached, a blue bear, and toiletries also.) It was tons of fun and and I pray that our kids would grow up to have a heart like their daddy's when it comes to giving and meeting needs around the world.
