I have two little Christmas Princesses this year. I don't know where they live. I don't know their names. I don't know what they look like or exactly how old they are. But i love them just the same. I went shopping last week for them and had the best time picking out adorable pink things for these precious girls. My little Christmas Princesses are two of the thousands of children who will receive gifts from Operation Christmas Child, run by Samaritan's Purse. It's a project that collects shoeboxes full of gifts for children worldwide. You can pick if you want to give to a boy or girl and what age you want. Then you find a shoebox, and fill it with gifts (they have a list of items on the website). You drop it off at your assigned location (also on the website) and they deliver it to a child who wouldn't get ANYTHING at all for Christmas. You are their Christmas hero. IT IS NOT TOO LATE to participate!! It is SO worth it!
I had picked some stuff up at Meijer's, but was in Target the next day. As I walked through their dollar section I was elated to find Disney Princess things for "my girls!" After that, I started referring to these girls as my Christmas Princesses.
If you are interested in doing Operation Christmas Child, go to http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/OCC/ They have everything you need to know on there. Drop-off runs until next Monday. That's a whole 6 days from now, and we have a whole weekend left!
Let us not forget to give this holiday season. In the past I've gotten too wrapped up in the getting part. This year, I hope that I give much more than i get.
I cannot get over these socks!! They are so cute. I kept envisioning Claudia in them and was wishing I could send her a box of Christmas gifts too! :)
