Giddy On Up

Unless you've been hiding under a rock (or you don't dig country music) then you know who Laura Bell Bundy is. I love her music and after watching a special on her found out that at heart she really is just a down home country girl. Team Colton is doing a drawing for her new CD Achin' & Shakin' to benefit March of Dimes. All you have to do to enter is make a donation to our March for Babies team by clicking HERE or the sidebar over there ==========>

For your viewing pleasure here is Laura Bell's fun music video for Giddy On Up.

Goodies for Babies

Last year was our first year participating in March for Babies, the year before that Colton was still in the hospital. So much was done for our family while Colt was sick and in the NICU, March of Dimes was the best way for us to give back. Last year we raised a little over $500, not bad for a bunch of rookies. This year we decided to raise our goal to $800 and each year we plan to raise our goal $300 over what we raise during the previous year. The March for Babies Frankfort/Lawrenceburg is just one week away and we, Team Colton, have already exceeded our goal. We are just under $1,200 and still fundraising until the very last minute.So many people have helped this year, family, friends, even strangers. We are so thankful that others care as much about prematurity and birth defects as we do. There is no possible way to thank all of the people who have worked so hard to help us but we do want you all to know that we think you are awesome!

A couple weeks ago we held our first annual Team Colton Bake Sale aka Goodies for Babies, it was a hit. The baked items were offered for a donation to Team Colton and we raised over $300 in just 4 hours.Of course Colton had to work really hard too... at being so stinkin' cute for all his fans! He was certainly exhausted by the end of the day.Helping babies, like Colton, born too small and too sick made all the hard work well worth it.

To blog or not to blog...

I have asked myself that question almost every day for the last three weeks... the answer, obviously since I have not posted in like FOR-EV-ER (cue Sandlot sleepover scene), is always not to blog and to take a nap or clean or play with Colt or catch up on my DVR instead. It isn't that I am at a loss for ideas. There have been plenty of things to write about like...

the Team Colton Bake Sale for March of Dimes,
the fact that my mom and I have started a new business adventure,
Colton's super cute new pictures
and of course Easter.
I've been busy (oh, alright, you caught me, and lazy) so I haven't had time to write. I am on a mission to change that... will it be mission accomplished or mission impossible? Stick around to find out.
