Help us reach our goal!!!!

One day..... all babies will be healthy but we need to walk to get there! Did you know that March of Dimes is inspired by ALL babies - those that are born healthy and those that need help to survive and thrive? They are the millions of reasons why the March of Dimes fights for health insurance, pushes for newborn screening, provides comfort and information to families with a newborn in intensive care, and supports research offering hope for preventions and solutions for babies born too soon or with a birth defect. With the help of March of Dimes hopefully one day every family will know the joy of a healthy baby!

I am a team captain along with my great friend Rach and sister-in-law Tana for Team Munchkin Madness sponsored by Midland Memorial Hospital and we are getting down the wire for the March of Dimes Walk on May 2nd. Together, along with the help of friends and family we have raised a total of $1844 for healthy babies! We are REALLY wanting to reach that $2000 mark - but to do that we need your help! Just a few dollars can put us closer that that amazing number!! You can help push us closer to that number by visiting out website and making a donation. No donation is too small!

Just remember every time you look into the eyes of your beautiful healthy babies it is because of the education, research assistance, and determination of March of Dimes that allows you to do so! I don't have any kiddos of my own but I am so thankful to March of Dimes to be Aunt Jess to some healthy munchcans!! So go make a donation and if you live in Midland join us for the walk on Saturday May 2nd at Midland College!
A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.

And that's all I have to say about that! Went to Lowe's this morning and spent $10 on a special roller that is supposed to help with really rough textured brick....for those of you who know me I am cheap and have a really hard time spending that much dinero on a roller - but if it works it will be so worth every dollar spent! Just to put it in perspective - it took me 6 hours to prime the brick yesterday! Ahhh! But the sun room will be finished today! Yay!
