{Advent Action} Day 18

18 Days Until Christmas

Today's activity: "send cards to our soldiers"
(thanks for the idea, Jenny!)

This activity was picked specifically for today as Drew has had a stomach bug for a few days, and he was in pretty bad shape last night. So, something low-key and simple was in the works for today's project.

It took a bit to explain to Drew who soldiers were, and why we were sending them cards. I don't think he got it. But that's okay.

I picked up a package of six Toy Story (had to make it interesting for the boys somehow) Christmas cards at the dollar store.

Drew went to work signing all six.

I then signed for the rest of us and included a short note of gratitude. I'll pop them in the mail tomorrow.

NOTE: If you're interested in sending a card to our soldiers, there's more info HERE. You don't have much time, however. They need to be postmarked by this Friday the 10th in order to make it to our troops on time.
