While I was visiting her this past weekend, she suggested that we (including my sister) go in together and do a Shoebox for Soldiers. Basically, her area of the country was collecting shoeboxes full of supplies (from a list that was published on the internet) to send to our American Soldiers fighting overseas.
We had so much fun buying fun (and some not-so-fun) supplies for the soldiers. We even decorated the box before we dropped it off at the collection site. They may not use our box, but we had fun decorating it anyway!
