Google Me

I'm not much on memes, but when I ran across this one I was intrigued. It combined two of my favorite things, googling and picking out pictures. So here is a collage of all things me. The funny thing is I googled all these pictures last fall and never had the chance to post them. Now I can't remember what I was thinking when I picked them out or which trait they represent. Your guess is as good as mine. Click on the collage to see it bigger.

Google Me

Blankets for Christmas

My friend Liz posted this story about her mom on her blog.
Last year during one of her lessons on traditions she showed the students a picture of a little girl on Santa's lap and asked them what they thought she was asking him for. A little boy in kindergarten responded immediately by saying that she was asking for a blanket. My mom responded by asking why, and the little boy said, "Because her body shakes and wakes her up at night because she is cold."
Her family has started a Blankets for Christmas campaign to donate fleece blankets to children in need. Read more here to find out how you can help.
