Is kind of hard to believe, but our family is in full Christmas swing already!
Because Salvation Army officers are so busy with Thanksgiving/Christmas food distribution, bell ringing and toy collection and distribution, our Christmas party is very early. The first weekend in November kind of early. We met in Dayton, at the Krock Center. It gave us a chance to dress up, see Santa and spend time with my best friend and my goddaughter. And we even got gifts.
Having the first snow of the season so early this year, also helped to get us into the holiday spirit.
We also had out official "Kettle Kick-Off"Dinner on Thursday. I got to tell people about what the Salvation Army does and my husband, along with a couple board members, got to ring the first bell of the season. The favors from the nigh were bell key chains. So everyone got to ring with us. (you van see Truett ringing his little bell from his seat). Are you in the Christmas spirit yet? What gets you in a jolly mood?
