EXTRA! EXTRA! Read All About It!

Not only is this girl cute, smart, and full of personality, she's also got a heart as big as Texas. Over the summer she held a Lemonade Stand fund raiser for a local group called RAH! Every penny she earned (including the money she got from recycling the cans) was donated. RAH! contacted our local paper and they interviewed her for a story which was published today. Want to read about it?

Rock on, Thumbelina! I can only imagine that she got such a great desire to do service from her parents.

Reading the article made me feel so proud of her!

Hurray for Thumbelina! I was so excited to open the newspaper today and see her picture and read the article. And what a great organization she picked to donate to. I did volunteer work there for a BYU class 18 years ago (okay, so I'm old) and met an employee there who started calling me after I was finished with my three months worth of volunteer hours. Long story short, we've been married now for 17 1/2 years. So I have a special place in my heart for RAH! The director is my kids' surrogate aunt and she spoils them rotten. I still volunteer there doing their quarterly tax reports, and I went into labor with my youngest while I was there accompanying the RAH! choir. Yes, I could go on and on about RAH! and what a great place it is. So thanks, Thumbelina, for donating your time and money to such a great cause! And thanks, Thumbelina's Mom, for raising such a great daughter!

Who could ask for a better daughter? Who could ask for a better mother? You are both wonderful!

P.S. I think the recipe exchange or at least treats at the training is a great idea. Three cheers for sugar and junk!
