Well we took down the last of the Halloween decorations this week, and have already started to think about Christmas. I know this year is going to be busier then most leading up to the holidays with the arrival of baby #2 in the next couple of weeks, but that will not stop us from taking part in the many Christmas traditions we have established over the years. One of my favorite traditions is adopting a family for Christmas. There are so many ways to give back during the holidays, this is the way my family chooses to give. This will be my 9th year adopting a family!!! I posted last year about working with Dixon Hall in Toronto, and I will be partnering with them again this year to help spread some Christmas joy to those in need.
One of the most amazing parts about giving back during the holidays (or all year long) is that it is contagious. The more you do it the more other people get involved as well. I could not provide a family with a full Christmas all by myself, it is with the help of friends and family that we are able to put together what I hope is a memorable Christmas for the family. I have already started to get the “Are you doing the adopt a family again this year?” questions from people who have helped us out in the past, and the answer is YES! I am looking forward to starting my shopping, and knowing that we are making a difference in the lives of a local family.
In the spirit of giving I am happy to announce that Little Miss Kate with be running a giveaway along with LEGO DUPLO and one lucky person will win FOUR LEGO DUPLO sets that will arrive gift wrapped and ready to give just in time for Christmas!
