Paper Love

Since the terrible events of last Friday, I've been feeling so heavyhearted. Praying, crying, and praying... wishing I knew how to help these families and their community. Today I heard about a wonderful way to reach out to the surviving students of Sandy Hook Elementary School.

When they return to class, it will be in a different building in another town, an unfamiliar environment — all in the wake of last week’s tragedy. There is a grass-roots project under way (spearheaded by the Connecticut Parent-Teacher-Student Association) to decorate their new school with homemade snowflakes and create a welcoming winter wonderland.

The Snowflake Project... a small way to help. I am doing this... You can do this...

If you and your little one would like to contribute, please send your snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to Connecticut PTSA, 60 Connolly Parkway, Building 12, Suite 130, Hamden, CT 06514.

Please spread the word and share with your friends, families and teachers!!

Shine unwrapped the advent book tonight to find one he received at my company Christmas party several years ago when he was only a year old, called Christmas Lights.

The story is a cute rhyme, but the charm is in the lights that actually blink when you press the button on each page. Look closely and you'll see he turned them on for you :)
