Lastly, Silver Bells is one charity I am super excited about...with my grandparents gone, this Charity is near and dear personally. Its just an awesome idea... Silver Bells, think toys for tots but for Senior Citizens, this charity is through the Salvation Army, both Gabe and I have a ball getting things that these seniors ask for...what a great way to give back!
