One of the most important lessons that we want our kids to learn throughout their lives is the importance of community and helping one another and giving back. While these are lessons we encourage year-round, we also make it a point to include several give-back activities during the holidays. Whether it’s running over a batch of cookies to share with our neighbors or picking out a few toys to give to a child in need or baking a batch of treats to deliver to our local fire station, we make sure that Lucas (and Amelia will too when she gets older) is fully involved in the process.

This year, we put together some treats for two of our local fire stations…

and then hand delivered the treats right after school.

It was a great experience for all of us and a wonderful way to show our gratitude to the men and women who protect us every day. The firefighters were awesome – they gave us a tour of the station and invited Lucas up on the firetruck and let him try their uniform on. He was so excited!

Make some time to give back in some way this holiday season. Your family could sponsor a family in need, buy a few toys for a child-in-need, volunteer at a food bank or drive, deliver treats to your local fire station, write letters to active or wounded military men and women.
