"Holiday" Party!!!

Every year JCRMA has a Holiday Party for members and spouses. We originally had it scheuled for December, but with all the other holiday parties going on, we decided to postpone it until January. Last night Brian and Sarah hosted our party and we had a great turn out. The food was catered by Taziki's and it was delicious. Like always, the ladies had a great time socializing. Also, then men were able to talk and catch up with one another (they rarely have time to socialize!).

Pray for Harper!

If you read my blog, I'm sure you have already read about this family. I have added a button to the side of our page to remind us to pray for the Stamps family. I do not even know this family, but I have been reading Kelly's blog for quite some time now for recipes and fun craft ideas. She is truly an inspiration with her incredible amount of faith and perseverance. Kelly and her husband tried for over 2 years to concieve thier precious baby Harper. She was born on Jan. 16th. She was born with viral pneumonia and heart issues. Harper has been on 100% oxygen up until yesterday when she miraculously turned the corner and is now on only 57% oxygen. Please lift this family up in your prayers- God is going to do great things for them! Click on the pink stamp on the right of our blog to read more about this amazing family and get updates on little Harper.

Mom's & Tots

Our Mom's and Tots playgroup met today at the Mountain Brook Library. Each Thursday they bring out all of their toys including dress-up clothes, books, beanbags, and an awesome tunnel to crawl through! We had five JCRMA families come today to share the fun!

Girl's Night Out at Iguana Grill

Tonight we had fun at GNO! We met at Iguana Grill in Hoover for a delicious Mexican dinner. There was lots of wonderful girl talk that kept us rolling all night! We shared some pretty funny stories and text messages... It's great to have a night to be with the girls and sit back and relax!

Pajama Bunco!

Wednesday night we had Pajama Bunco at Brandi's house! However, we really didn't play bunco...we played "Scene It-Movie," which was a lot of fun. Brandi cooked a wonderful dinner! She made a delicious spaghetti casserole, put together an awesome spinach salad, and baked some tasty garlic bread. Adair made an awesome onion dip for an appetizer and Areta brought homemade cookies! One thing is for sure...when we get together we know how to eat, laugh, and relax! We had a great time with a good turnout of 12 people. We also collected "Suits for Success" that night. We collected around 50 items as a group to donate!

Oh Baby!

We had our monthly "Oh Baby!" gathering at Leah's house on Tuesday. There were 6 little ones there! We had snacks, played together, and had wonderful conversations. You really learn a lot from other moms that have "been there, done that."

Our group is open to anyone that is pregnant and infants up to 18 months old. Our group is really growing this year. We currently have AT LEAST 10 ladies that are pregnant in the the playgroups will be much larger next year! We love all of these beautiful babies. They are such a blessing to each of us!
