EVENT ROUND-UP: Little Wonders Made By Lots of Wonderful People!!

Here it is! The Blogging for Babies - Little Wonders Event Round-up! Enjoy browsing the amazing little creations made by all the wonderful bloggers who were able to participate in this little event. These fabulous people are helping me spread the word and raise awareness about the March of Dimes and their March for Babies fundraiser. Their mission is all about research and advocacy for mom's and babies - they are working so that one day, every baby can be born healthy - but as they say, we have to walk to get there.

These wonderful friends below helped me spread the word about our family's participation in the March for Babies this coming Saturday and we are very excited. There are scheduled to be almost 2,000 people at the walk being held at Wheeler Farm here in Utah. To add to our excitement we have family coming from out of town to walk with us and my husband's skydiving team are going to be jumping in with the American flag at the opening ceremonies during the national anthem. We are excited that we can help make the event a little bit more exciting for all the wonderful participants that are coming to walk for this amazing cause.

Again, the whole purpose of this event was to get the word out about the March of Dimes and the work that they do. If you are able to donate to sponsor our family in the march, please just click on the banner at the top of the page (or click here) and donate any amount that you can. For the back story on why we are so passionate about this, you can read the full story or even check out our little family blog.

For my little contribution to the little wonders madness, here is a picture of the Dulce de Leche Duos out of BFMHTY. They are amazing! I will post the recipe with the announcement of the winners next week (just so I can get this roundup posted)!

I have some prizes for the top three "people's choice" winners of the event.
So, make sure to check out everyone's posts and then email me to tell me your favorites.
The top three will win their choice of three "prize packages" that I have.

Email your votes for your favorites to me at phemomenon AT gmail DOT com
Voting closes on April 30th.

Thank you again (and again and again) to everyone who participated for
your support of our little family and such a good cause!
