Giving Jar

We are doing the giving jar again this year.  We did it last year and really enjoyed it.  It has become a tradition in our house.  This idea came from a fellow photographer.  Instead of an advent calendar, we do something nice for someone else everyday of the month of December.  Here is the link to her super cool website.  Giving Jar  Here is the list of our good deeds.
