Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells!

I try to have extra cash around during the holidays because the kids need to start loving to help others out, even when it might be the last little bit you have on your person. They had been fascinated by this gentleman on the way in to Sam's because he was singing carols at the top of his voice our entire way in, so they were extra-excited to donate on the way out.  And their gifting was rewarded.  Not only was he still singing, but he started handing out bells like crazy (Annie had one but declined to get in the photo) and had the kids join in on Jingle Bells.  I think Johnny would have stayed all day and the girls were beside themselves with singing their hearts out and ringing so everyone could hear.

It was about the coolest thing that's happened to them in a long time.  So Merry Christmas and Thank You, Mr. Salvation Army ringer.  You made our day.  You probably made our week.
