CHRISTMAS EVE DELIVERS

Our Christmas Eve tradition every year is to deliver presents with the Police Department to needy families all over the city. Our family LOVES this tradition. This year we spent about 6 hours on the truck. Steve is always our driver. It's an adventure when he's behind the wheel. :)
This is Steve unloading one of the MANY boxes.
This is the big paddy wagon that we used.
You can see Santa in the front seat.
Stevie and Kayla stayed behind to wrap
last minute gifts.
I couldn't help sneaking a picture with Mr. Claus.
I also snuck in a few last minute requests. :)
Officer Orton and Santy in front of the truck.

Santa was a special visitor at each house.

It was a blast!!!

We can't wait to do it again next year.

These are wonderful memories for your children. I hope they write in their journal every day about the happenings of the day. This is something they will be able to tell their own children someday. God Bless them all!
