Operation Gratitude

Evie and I had a fun day together although it started bright and early this morning. By 10:00, I was ready to get out of the house with my sweet little one so we headed to Chick fil A for some lunch. We came home to eat and had fun sweeping the kitchen. Evie has her own little broom and thinks it is so fun to sweep the floors.

   We played outside a little and then headed to Operation Gratitude. Evie was not so sure about giving all the candy away and kept saying bye bye. She warmed up once all the other kids arrived. We made cards, packed boxes of Halloween candy, beanie babies and other assorted items for our courageous soldiers. They enjoy the treats and give it to the kids that they meet. I was thrilled to get rid of some of our excess Halloween candy! Evie loved making cards and using stickers. She ate a piece a cake, snagged a few candies and played with her friends. The Brentwood Journal came out to interview us and take our picture. I'll be sure to post the article when it prints. It was dark on the way home but it has been a gorgeous day.

   Carl was here when we got home and we all watched a cow show together. Evie is in love with her "shows" about cows and owls on You Tube. Hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. That's a great idea - to get friends together for Operation Gratitude! Again, you've got such an involved group there in Nashville. I love reading about all your activities. :)


Thank you for your comment!
