Military packing!


Do you know what I just stuffed into a gallon bag?
2 dresses
1 shirt
1 pair of pants
10 pairs of underwear
1 pair of socks
1 pair of crocs
1 pair of sunglasses
24 pack of colored pencils
20 pack of #2 pencils
1 spiral notebook
1 board book
2 oatmeal bars
2 fruit bars
2 toothbrushes
1 bar of soap
1 doll* + accessories (it's tiny I admit)
1 jumprope
2 yo yos
1 harmonica
2 bags of jacks
2 balls
10 hair clips
1 bar of soap

That has to be a record.

We're following the Operation Christmas Child method, but instead sending it to the children we met down in Haiti.
Thats a photo of the little girl, Damilove, who's going to recieve my bag in the photo above. (It's skewed from the angle)
I'm so excited and I hope Kristie can take a photo of her with all the stuff I/we sent.


*It's a Jasmine doll (from Aladdin) that was the closest to "black" as I could find in the store. I was like "what's a woman gotta do to find a black doll around this place?!"
