Spreading The Christmas Spirit

   

We have made a few suggestions in our previous blog post about great ways to give back but our number one suggestion is to buy a toy that your child can give to someone else. There is no better way to teach your child about the Christmas spirit than allowing them the opportunity to give back to those less fortunate.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good... read more
