On the day of our Christmas party, the gifts were piled high beneath the trees in the playroom and the preschool. Where did they all come from?
Shhh, don't tell the kids but the nice guy in the red suit didn't really bring them from the North Pole in a sled pulled by reindeer. They arrived in packages and boxes, mailed from across the world by generous folk who wanted to put a smile on some little faces this Christmas.
As the children received their gifts, admired the gift-wrap and tore them open, their expressions were a beautiful sight. So much joy and gladness, and there are A LOT of photographs.
We will post as many pictures as we can over the coming days of the kids opening and enjoying their gifts, but here are just a few to give you a glimpse...
It looks like Austyn was rather impressed with this gift, doesn't it?!
Millie quickly figured out a fun game with some of her new toys.
To all who sent gifts for the children, a very big THANK YOU from us and them. You helped to make their Christmas special!
