Day 4

Today is busy with church, lunch with a friend, and my hubby’s Christmas party (for work).  In there we will be going to the store and picking up some items for a friend we know.  They recently adopted two children, from the state, and have another baby in their care.  They went from being a family of two to a family of five real quick.  She, the Mom, has been staying home but recently has been contemplating going back to work.  They live in a two bedroom apartment which for a family of five is tight!

UPDATE:

The Drop and Ride Event was terrific!  After we dropped off our donation the kids got to ride in both the fire truck and police car.  It was a little strange to be taking your children’s picture while sitting in the back of the patrol car (bars and all).  I hope to never see that again. 🙂

If I didn’t know what as going on that evening I would have been a little concerned.  The Target shopping center was filled with lots of police and fire trucks with their lights on going every which way.  Tons of people were standing outside.  I bet no one tried to rob the store that night.

Here’s some pics of the event:
