Give Generously

Toys for Tots

As we get farther & farther into the holiday season, I wanted to take a moment to suggest you pick your favorite charity and give generously. As you might guess from the image with this post, I’d highly recommend Toys for Tots.

*UGH* That was a looooooooooooong day. The night before, I’d headed to bed around 11 (slighly early for me) thinking I was bit a head of the game. Boy was that ever the wrong thing to be thinking.

Cool Toy

Disney recently released an extremely cool toy that a friend of my, Bryon, has always wanted. It was a bit pricey, but AWelkin talked him into getting it.
