So, beginning of November, I signed the kids up for this Toys-for-Tots type thing but run by somebody else. There was no guarantee that was even going to happen so I just put whatever I could think of at the time on the list.
Turned out, Santa decided to come early this year. Yay!

This box is now our prayer box. It was packed with love
by a young child.
And this is what was inside; a three-part of wipes, baby wash and baby lotion.
Now, we’re gettin into the books. This one was one of my favorite children’s books, which is sayin something because I didn’t like them that much as a child.
This one makes all sorts of dinosaur noises like roaring and stomping through the jungle and even eating leaves.
Even though the kids have my husband’s last name, my last name was on the sign up, so they all put my last name with the kids’ names. And I think it’s adorable the way they all spelled her name ‘Jum’.
These Christmas cards have so much love in them.

Another adorable Christmas card.
New shoes, Jiraiya can grow into. Woo-hoo!
More books! A couple of them are second copies so Jem can have one too.
Some of these were wrapped so beautifully, I couldn’t help but photograph them.
No ashy babies on my watch anymore.
Baby toys for Jem!
A book just for Jem.
More clothes. Lol
I wish I had video recorded the moment when Daddy said, “Hey, look, bubba. You’ve got a sled!” Jiraiya’s reaction was so perfect!
Diapers and wipes, yo.
This wrapping paper was so shiny and pretty, I had to take a picture.
But look what was inside! Pretty freakin sweet, if you ask me.
There will be NO reason why my babies would be dirty now. Not that there was any before.
Jem receiving her first real teddy bear. She’s just all like, “What’s goin on?”
Another Christmas card attached to a present.
This beautiful blanket was inside.

Happy Holidays, everybody!
