St. Vincent's

Today was the annual St. Vincent's trip with the clerk's office where we bring toys to children in a special school for children of abuse with behavioral problems. I always volunteer to go (and bake cookies since I love to bake) because the kids are so grateful and incredibly cute. The star of the show today was a little boy who bounced around the room shouting his excitement at Santa and then who shrieked happily over receiving batteries (for the remote control car he hadn't yet opened). Giving is an important part of Christmastime, and giving to those who can't give back is sometimes the most rewarding way to celebrate the holidays.

Unfortunately, not everyone who signed up to go to this trip was able to due to three people calling off, but another of our co-workers stepped up and offered to cover multiple courtrooms to ensure that three of us got to attend. Thanks Jessica! At least some people are in the Christmas spirit.
