Hugs for Layla Grace

Today, we went to "Hugs for Layla Grace." It was a fundraising event for the Layla Grace Foundation at Anna's daycare center.

I thought it was a really neat idea:

Noah's Ark Workshop (think "Build-a-Bear") was there, and kids were able to come and choose their own animal friends to stuff. Not only did all of the proceeds go to the Layla Grace Foundation, but you could also choose to stuff an animal to donate to the patients at Texas Children's Hospital.

So Anna chose to stuff the monkey to donate to Texas Children's. And she chose to stuff the panda, which she named "Oscar", to take home with us.

Anna got to make a birth certificate and a beaded collar for Oscar. Then, she got her face painted, and did some coloring. She got to see some of her friends from her class, so that was fun, too!

A fun morning for a great cause!
