Growing up Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. I really love going to see the Christmas lights, decorating our Christmas tree, making Christmas cookies and having the time to spend with family. I always feel like my husband doesn’t have the same feelings about the holidays so sometimes its hard for me. I always like to make sure everyone has a lot of gifts under the tree.
I am hoping and praying that this year we will get to go a few times to see the different Christmas lights around the neighborhoods. I also hope to be able to take Chelsea to the mall to go visit Santa Claus and to right on the Christmas train at the mall.
I love going to the KLUC Toy Drive and making a donation so that I can give back to the community. I remember about 18 years ago my family was in a tough spot and my mom could not afford to provide Christmas for us. My sisters were 1 and 9 so actually all 3 of us still believed in Santa Claus. My mom had applied for assistance for us kids and actually she got assistance from the KLUC Toy Drive the first year that it was around. Since I realized that is where she got the assistance from each year I feel that it necessary for me to give back to the community as much as I can. If you live in the Las Vegas Community and have any thing to spare. KLUC Toy drive accepts new unwrapped toys, bikes, gift cards, etc. I have made it a point to teach Chelsea that she needs to share since some kids may not have that much under their Christmas Tree.
Here is a glimpse at our donations from last year. I am getting our toy donation ready and we plan on taking it to the toy drive next weekend. I have a feeling we won’t have quite this much to give but we will have enough to make at least a few children’s Christmas bright and wonderful.
