My Girls

My girls are so much fun!

Sisters rule! (Even when their clothes are clashing!)

This is why my bed is never made!

Madison likes to "style" Kasey's hair!

As seen on television! Yes - Madison is wearing a Snuggie!

Good Deeds

Madison and Allison are both Girl Scouts.

Madison is a Junior and Allison is a Brownie. Sometimes we have both troops work together to provide services for our community. This is the second year that the 2 troops have worked together for the "Give A Bear - Get A Smile" project.

The girls basically ran a stuffed animal drive for Hunterdon Medical Center. They collected new stuffed animals for the hospital's ER and Pediatric Departments. They held collections at school and in the community.

Last year, our local Kohl's Department Store donated over 600 stuffed animals to our program.

There was barely enough room for all of the animals!

The girls also do an incredible amount of work for the Food Pantry and the Women's Crisis Center. They help out with Operation Shoebox to benefit our soldiers abroad. There are a few more projects to complete this year.

Madison's Junior Troop made pinatas - a penguin, a pig, and a hot air balloon for the Food Pantry to donate to needy families. The big, red basket in the middle was a beautiful birthday basket that the girls also made for the Food Pantry. They filled it with everything a family would need to throw a birthday party for their child.
It is such a great feeling to see the girls learn compassion and the value of helping others!
