Help me help the Ronald McDonald House of Nashville!
I am planning a fundraiser, Snow Princess Pageants, for the Ronald McDonald House of Nashville. Iam seeking sponsors and donations to help with expenses of the event. The expenses include facility rental, insurance, food, crowns, flowers, and prizes.
The Ronald McDonald House is something that is very close tomy heart. My son was born with a heart defect in March 09 and we were introduced to the house while at Vanderbilt. We were fortunate enough to stay at the house during each of his surgeries.
100% of the proceeds of this event will go to the house. If you think you could help in any way please let me know and I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
You may donate by paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or I can pick up prizes.
Sponsors will be given advertisement at the pageant.
Thanks so much!

Calling all girls ages 5 to 13! I am directing this pageant for a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Nashville. After our recent stays with them, they have my heart. I was not able to fully comprehend Theo's condition until we were able to stay at the house. I had a place to recover and put my feet up after my c-section and it was place to go when Matt and I needed a mental break.
It is truly a blessing to families with children in the hospital. And I want to give back.
They operate on a donation basis and in this economy they need our help!
for details go to...
And of course I need donations for prizes!!!! If you are interested in donating something...anything... to the pageant please contact me, I could really use it and would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!

Theo's full TOF repair was October 8th; we are home and doing great. He should be released from the surgeon next week then we will have regular follow ups with the cardiologist.
The past seven months have been an emotional whirlwind. I have found strength and faith in myself I didn't know I had. At times Matt and I sat in the hospital room silent, but knowing what each were thinking. Worrying and praying for Theo's body to heal itself. We did find humor, one of the janitors told us she dropped her baby on his head a lot, but he had a "hard head". I wanted to ask how he is or what he's doing today. And there's the large lady at Vandy Cafe who had a beautiful weave with some pink streaks and lovely long matching fingernails, who was stocking the cooler. I guess it was hard work because she turned and sighed to me "OH, little baby Jesus whewwww!" All I could do was laugh.
Those mental breaks were much needed and it helped us realize that God was going to take care of Theo.
I wanted to share one of the verses that helped me stay at peace.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I put this on a black tee and used multi colored pink stones. I can also do these on tote bags or anything you like!
I'd love to hear what your favorite verse is or one that has helped you through a difficult time?
