Last weekend we spent Friday night and Saturday in Des Moines at the Beaverdale Holiday Boutique.
I've got lots of pictures to show all of you, but for now I'm going to tell you this one story that sums up how great our time there was.
This boy of about 10 or 11 approached us and explained that he'd been saving his money all fall to buy his family Christmas gifts. He explained he likes to buy one big thing for the family, and then something smaller for the people individually. This year he wanted to buy this piece of Green Girl's on the left: "Welcome to our happy, fun, crazy, loud home." But he was $2 short.
We're not going to let a measly $2 stand in your way!
Sold, Young Man! In Green Girl's words, "Let's do this thing!" (With a fist pound to the table.)
I'm not too proud to mention that this guy's heart for his family made me teary eyed and got me gently teased by my fellow Wingers! What can I say, I'm an old softy.
