Pay It Forward {Day 18/Year 2}


Tonight was our community's Christmas tree lighting and hot dog we won tickets to sit on the patio of the micro-brewery that shares a plaza with the Christmas tree. This is super awesome because it meant no fighting amongst the masses for a good spot.

We got to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the show with complimentary cookies and cocoa for Liam.

To pay it forward we invited another family that was planning to attend anyway to share our table and premier viewing spot. Yay!

We also brought a tube of glow sticks for Liam and his friend and three additional tubes for him to hand out just because. He loved having that honor of giving them away and we talked about how nice it felt to just give.

Unfortunately people are pretty skeptical of free and fun just for the sake of it so it took some serious convincing that yes they could have them and no we didn't expect anything in return.

*In other news, after I took loads of photos this evening my camera phone failed...perhaps permanently. So, this stock glow stick photo will have to do for now.*

Have you found a way to pay it forward yet?
