Reason for the Season

This past weekend, we took Conner to the local firehouse to drop off some toys for the Toys For Tots charity. We tried to explain to Conner we weren't taking these toys to be mean, and that Santa was going to take them to boys and girls all over that weren't going to get as many things as he was. We also talked about sharing and how good he is with Lilli. Whenever she's crying he offers her whatever toy he's playing with to soothe her.

When we got to the firestation he was a little shy at first but eventually started helping the fireman empty out the toys and then said, "Santa give these to everybody". Gah! I was so proud of him.

I think we'll make this a yearly tradition and hopefully build in him the importance of caring for your fellow man, and realizing how truly grateful we are.
