We took our kids to see Santa, and I was chatting with a friend about everything we got the kids. She used a school program and got some really great gifts! I was so happy fir them! They have had a hard year. While I am not able to buy a bunch of expensive toys my kids will have PLENTY. More them smores and less then some. (5 gifts each so 15 fir a total of 70 and change!) I got great stuff on sale! And am proud of what I was able to get them! She teased me about not getting help. I told her although we did qulify we didn't NEED it! I don't wanna take gifts that could have been some child's ONLY gift!
Well the lady who was taking the pictures over heard and as I was taking pictures (not buying LOL) she asked me for my basic info. I thought nothing of it. Number kids names ages my name. No biggie. Well I just got a call from Her, she bought my kids gifts and clothes and told me I could pick them up at the mall security center!

I'm kinds torn what would you do! I thank her a million times I'm greatful but I don't feel we needed the help!

pick them up and donate them if you really dont want them... easy.. say thank you and be done.  no need to be rude about it, and yes by saying we dont need them, blah blah blah, is being rude when someone is trying to helop you, regardless if you need it or not

I would never tell a person I don't need something that they bought out of kindness. I'm so greatful she thought to be so kind!
