We are doing the shoe boxes this year too! We through a Christmas party last Tuesday for our playgroup. We made Christmas cookies, I got the Christmas music out and everyone came over to assemble their shoe boxes together. It was a lot of fun! I haven't emptied my camera yet, but when I do, I'll send pics

We just did ours yesterday! This is, I believe, the 3rd year (maybe the 4th) that we've done it and it's become a Christmas tradition for Reilly. She'll bring it up without me mentioning it at all, "Mom, when are we going to make the shoeboxes?" We do one for a girl who is her age and one for a boy who is Declan's age, so hopefully he'll get in the spirit soon. This year he said, very puzzled when we were explaining to him that we weren't at the dollar store to get things for him, "Well, then, I just coulda stayed home?" It was so funny! Reilly's really into it, though!

Thanks for posting about this. I've never heard of it, but I love it. I think we'll go to the store later and get some stuff to do this.
