Advent: Day 2- Buy Gifts for a Needy Child

This evening we spent time at Kohl's and Crafts 2000 buying gifts for a needy child.  We enjoyed picking out the headphones that our child had requested.  We also enjoyed debating style and color for the sweaters, shirts and jackets we selected.  We included a few gift cards and a monogram necklace just because we thought they would be nice to receive.  When all was said and done we were within $1 of our budgeted amount.

Wrapping the gifts was part of our evening that I hadn't anticipated.  It was a joy to have help with this part of gift giving.

Even though giving to others won't be on our advent schedule every Sunday evening, I think adding a giving activity on Sunday might not be a bad idea.
