A Girl After My Own Heart.....

.....literally.  
My daughter has always loved serving other people. 
So when it came time to put together a project for her 
FCCLA club at school....a chapter 
service project is what
appealed to her. 

It's a 3 part plan.  
The first thing she did was organize 
thank you notes to servicemen through 

She collected over 400 notes.  
They were so sweet from kids grades 5 - 12. 

She wanted to focus on teen girls for her second project.  
Teenagers are hard to buy for at Christmas time 
and often become overlooked.  
So with the help of her FCCLA 
group they made t-shirt fashion scarves
 for several different agencies to pass out in 
stockings or give to families for Christmas. 

They turned out so cute and we had the 
rewarding experience of giving them out yesterday.  
They will be used to fill Angel Tree requests and help 
Grandparents raising Grandchildren. 

I can't think of a better activity to work on with my daughter at this time of year.
