Kicking off the holiday season

So I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I am truly starting to kick into Christmas mode. I think it's largely due to the fact that I am planning gift-giving early this year so I can buy online, and a lot from etsy, and create some handmade things myself too. Anyway, I am planning to share some gift ideas with you guys over the next few weeks, but...I am also starting to plan our charitable activities and of course had to share those with you too!

Tonight I signed Jack (and myself of course) up to ring the bells/man the red kettle for the Salvation Army. We did it last year and had such a blast! I mean tell me this kid wasn't having fun?

And maybe this year he'll even be able to see over the kettle!

Last year we froze our butts off (but actually were really lucky because the day before was like -40 wind chill) but really we still had an awesome time together! This year we have an indoor gig here (in front of Macy's) from 4-6pm on December 12th (which may mean a surprise appearance by the girls & Dad later in our shift) . Please come out, say hi, and give us your change! Please!!!

And if you can't make it (or aren't local) please consider clicking the pic below and donating to Jack's online red kettle. You can watch his progress (if the widget placement goes well) on the sidebar...

Interested in volunteering yourself? It's super easy to do (you sign up online)...just click here if you are in the greater Milwaukee area to learn more.

Awesome, Heather!!! We are totally doing this too--on Nov 27th at Brookfield Square! Yes, that is the day after T-Day and yes we are crazy. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
