We're not big Christmas shoppers. Our immediate family is not huge and we make lists for each other so shopping is pretty easy.
We always try to do something major for someone or something outside the family. This year we made a donation to Dream Village which houses chronically ill children and their families when their wish is to come to Disney World or one of the other theme parks. Writing a check is easy but I didn't feel like I really did anything so when my daughter called and said her school was sponsoring the children in the local Children's Home Society and would I help out I said OK. The four of us took eight teenagers (4 boys and 4 girls). I went to Target and got Christmas mugs, book lights, pencils, candy, cookies, fuzzy socks for the girls and games for the boys, etc. Each of them will also get a gift card but it was fun filling the gift bags. I have no idea what any of these teens like but I hope I found something that will bring a smile to their faces.
