hugs for other parents

Our most recent charity project was for Allison Hugs, and you can read more about it HERE.
Here are some Hugs bags, that we delivered to Mercy Hospital to all the parents - who had children in the hospital over the holidays.

Barbie Cares

We had a Barbie Brunch and went to see Barbie in person.

Barbie Cares !


It has been a busy month around here, and I am starting to catch up.
We had a Halloween party - which was crazy with Carson's classmates and an adult one later in the evening.

We went Trick or Treating at the C house - with their family and it was a blast!
Cole has refused to wear any costume, so he went with some Saturday fall staples: football gear.

Des Moines Moms - Moms Like Me

Did you happen to see that Des Moines Moms got a facelift and upgrades?
Yes, they traded the old site in for a newer model, a Beta.

OK, maybe the Register had a mid-life crisis?
But, they added tons of great things like:
A Grocery Coupon Section
A Groups Section
A Better MB and Welcome Page

So, go ahead and check out how cool it is now:

Green Day

I have always loved the market totes at Queen Bee.
They are made out of out banners.
I have contemplated sending my hip mama banner to them.
I know, how cool would that be ?

State Fair Parade 2008

So I helped A with the parade this year, she is on the parade committee. This was my first year - woooo hooo! I thought I would be helping with traffic or barricades .... well I rode on the golf cart with her up and down the parade - up close and personal - yikes !
I loved the Isiserettes, the Budweiser Clydesdale's, all the floats and more.
Maybe one of the coolest things - was that the Space Center was overhead at 8:55pm - it moved really fast in the sky and was very bright and shiny - and NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson was the parade marshal this year.

The theme this year was U Gotta Love It !
