Angel Tree

Our family is getting into the Christmas spirit.  We started shopping yesterday and are tagging our tree at the Althoff Tree Farm later today. 

This year, we've adopted a child from the Salvation Army's Angel Tree.  Although we're providing the money, the shopping is all on Calvin.  We want to teach him the true meaning of Christmas, including generosity to those less fortunate.  I am looking forward to sharing this experience with Calvin, and witnessing the warmness in his heart as he gives to our Angel.

I've been wanting to do this forever but could never find a tree. Thanks! And you rock, what a great learning lesson for Calvin.
