Shopping Excursion

Tonight we collaborated and used the power of team work to do Christmas shopping with the kids. We separated and selected the items that each child would buy for the other kids. I was essentially the mule taking the purchased goods under the cover of plastic bag and misdirection out to the car. I made several more trips than a typical customer at a store would make and the elderly greeter stationed at the door began to give me a funny look every time he saw me. I wondered at what point he would start awkwardly asking to see my receipts.

All in all, it was an eventful and fun time. Allen and I donated to the Salvation Army red bucket outside the door. He seemed to think it was a cool idea after I explained the idea behind why we would just stuff money into a bucket in front of a person that was ringing a bell.

Abby and Ashton each had a good time and except for some moments where the kids wanted to buy themselves gifts, everything went very well.

Your sister and I are wondering why we have to read your blog to find out what you are up to.

Love,

Your bro.
