My friend Megan invited me to join her and her friends for an evening of wine, pie (both pizza and sweet variety), and to put together boxes to send to children in need all over the world to spread the magic and joy of Christmas. As one does in such a situation, I said YES! I really didn’t know what to expect.

We definitely had fun putting things together.
I had so much fun just decorating the boxes!
We even put pictures of ourselves in the boxes so the recipients would know just who packed them with love!
Wrapping the boxes was an adventure all in itself!
