One of our giving tasks for the Advent countdown was to also give a little gift to people who do things for us and are often over looked.
We wrapped up some chocolates, wrote a little note and bible verse
and goofed around
and waited some more in the cold,
we didn't want to miss him,
he only comes every two weeks,
not every week like in most places
finally he arrived, our 'garbage man'
we saw the curious look on his as he rounded the corner
then a great big smile as we presented our gifts
the dog was just as excited
so the kids had to get around the dog to give their gifts
it was super fun to see his surprise and thankfulness
we are having a lot of fun with our countdown
