My good friend Jen is a big supporter of Relay for Life / American Cancer Society, in memory of her late husband Chris York. This sweet little girl is their beautiful daughter.
Check out this blog. Jen and her "Team York" put together an AMAZING raffle to raise money for Relay for Life / American Cancer Society. They have amazing prizes including $300 amazon gift card, $100 Destinations Inn gift card, $50 Target gift card, $50 Olive Garden gift card, and many others, including a family drawing or cards from me (okay, okay, I know maybe a $300 amazon gift card is just a tiny bit cooler than a doodle from me, but I'm excited to be a part of it). All it takes is $10 to enter!! The blog explains how to enter and all the prizes.
RAFFLE ENDS MAY 15TH . . . HURRY!!
Here is a little bit more about my wonderful friend Jen!
I met Jennifer in high school and she was just awesome. Can't say enough good things about her, I occasionally bumped into her at college but I lost track of her for several years. During this time she met a great guy, Chris York and they married. I am guessing their life was like regular newly weds, great excitement thrown in with "Will you please pick up your socks once in a blue moon." At some point their life changed dramatically when Chris was diagnosed with brain cancer. They gave it a great fight and during this time they had a beautiful baby girl. Chris lost his fight with cancer when his baby girl was only a few months old.
This is when I caught up with Jennifer again. She has been helping with Relay for Life in behalf of her husband for several years now, and I am so proud of her!
This story has a pretty great part 2. Jennifer later met another great man named Steven Andrew and they married and recently they added another beautiful baby girl to their family.
I love you tons Jennifer, you have always been a rock, but I think through your life experiences you must be one awesome and beautiful rock now.
Take a look at this blog link where Jennifer and her "Team York" put together some awesome prizes for a raffle. Even if this wasn't for Jennifer I would still donate for these way cool prizes, and to help American Cancer Society - 100% of the money raised will go to American Cancer Society. The blog explains everything.
Best of luck Jennifer!!
Teacher appreciate week was this week, or maybe last week, whoops. But also the end of the school year is winding down. Here is a picture I put together last year for my daughter's teacher. Here is the original post.

I found this original art work (the beautiful wording) at www.bitsycreations.com. I asked permission to add my little doodle to the bottom, but still kept her logo.
I put mine in a 5x7 frame.
Print this on regular computer paper or card stock and then trim down so you have two 5x7s. (Click on image and save to your computer)
Can't thank my children's teachers enough. Their world is so small - mom, dad, grandmas, grandpas, cousins, a few friends . . . and then their teacher. My FAVORITE thing my daughter's teacher taught her this year was "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit." She started saying it when her brother would complain about dinner. Aww, how I love that line and how it means so much because it came from HER teacher. THANK YOU TEACHERS!!
