Valley House needs your Help

I love the Christmas season. It is wonderful time to give back to those who need it . I started a little project in October collecting item for the Valley House. I used coupons to buy item that were free or close to free. Most of the item are travel size but every little bit helps.

I called the Valley House to see what the really need. The manger their was very touched to have some extra help. They are in need of bedding and dishes. They will take whatever you have of these items.

As woman come to the house the usually have no item with them. The house provides them with a safe place and fresh start. The have twelve studio type apartments that need to be furnished each time a woman comes. When she feels confident to leave she can take the furnishings with her. They are always in need of bedding and dishes (pots pans etc).

When I hear stories like the valley house I feel compelled to help. My life has been blessed a thousand times over. I cann't want t go through my things and find bedding. We have way to many blankets and pillows. Plus I am excited to clean out my cupboards and give what extra I am not using.

IF you have anything you would like to give you please let me know and I will come and pick up. Take it over to the Valley House before christmas.

Happy Birthday to me!!!

I turned 28 in November. Age is just a number to me. I truly believe you are as young as you want to be. You can't do nothing about getting older so you might as well go with it!
I had a wonderful birthday! Mike and the boys spoiled me with gifts and flowers. Mike's parents watched the boys so we could go out to dinner! My parents always call first think in the morning to sing happy birthday. Plus Mike and I went and saw Twight:) LOVED IT!!! My girl pals took me out to dinner too! IT WAS A PERFECT BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
