Hats Galore! Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ 2/13/2016

This week's "Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile Saturday" might should be called "Hats Galore!"

My Dad's work had these outdated logo baseball hats from an old event, so they're headed to our shoeboxes, or the OCC processing center for fillers.

I found these cars in with the old Awana Grand Prix track-used them to test or something, but seem in like-new condition, so it's off to the shoeboxes for them.

My mom & sister crocheted 4 of Mary's Aunt Ida Hats and attached the "Hand Made with Love tags" they designed.

This week I got to see my aunt who packs shoeboxes with us, and she had some things she'd picked up for shoeboxes.  Unlike me, she has a Staples nearby and got some $10 off $10 or more coupons, so was able to pick up some school supplies to fill in our gaps:
