Family Night: January

After coming across this post about serving together as a family, I spontaneously decided to use these ideas for our Family Nights this year. We needed some new ideas and serving together? Win-win!

So far, we've had SO much fun with these and I'm excited to see the cumulative benefits and blessings over the entire year. I confess though, that I have not been great about pictures through this process so that is one thing to learn for February.

Here's what we did:
Week One: wrote letters to military serving overseas through A Million Thanks.

Week Two: shopped for baby care items and created kits sent to Church World Service.

Week Three: Made cakes for local children's shelter

Week Four: packed up and mailed our baby care kits, delivered a meal to a family in our community

We also watched Homeless for the Holidays together which proved to be a good connection between family and serving.

Please tell me how you found out about the shelter? I know of one in a neighboring town, but I wouldn't assume I would be able to go in there. Also, I must know where you found that sweet floral for that flag in the one cake!

These are great ideas for family service. I'll be interested to see and hear updates on this! :)

Love you, Mom
