mamaness's Diaryland Diary

best food group around

I shouldn't stay on here long. I was just looking up information on Operation Christmas Child, which is when you fill a shoebox up with STUFF for children. I needed to see when MILs church was taking the boxes. Suprise, suprise it's this week! So Saturday morning the boys and I will work on that. We are also going to do an Angel from a Tree I think. Jas and I always said when I was pregnant (ok it was mostly me saying it) that we would start the GIVING young. And you see... Yesterday morning I pointed out to the boys that the Halloween house was now a Christmas house. And asked Jer what Christmas was about. And his answer? Well, what does any typical almostfiveyearold(OHMYGOSH) child tell you? Presents! Toys! Oh no. no no no no no . I have failed as a mother if I don't get him knowing that the spirit of christmas isn't to receive it is to GIVE by the time he is old enough for it to be reasonable for him. Why not start the teaching now? So yeah. I could do my usual "Why not help at OTHER TIMES OF THE YEAR too???" The volunteer book you get at the library? Only put out during the holidays. That bugs me. I guess it can be used year round at least.

I made chocolate cupcakes last night. Really good stuff. I had two, then tried to have a third but blech. I couldn't do it. So I had that third one this morning. For breakfast.
