|Coop's first outing as a newborn in 2008. |
Packing boxes for Operation Christmas
Child at church just a few days old!
|Sorry, I didn't snag a picture before cramming everything into the bins. My Mom and I |
shopped together and opted to buy the plastic bins, hoping that the kids could find other uses for
the bins after opening their gifts...a little more water and weather proof we thought.
Anyhow, we were able to pack...
Toothbrushes and toothpaste
24 pack of crayons
Flashlight with extra batteries
Cars for boys, My Little Ponies for girls
Huggable Teddy Bears
