It's a PARTY!

Ultimate Blog Party 2008


There's a party going on in the blogworld hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom & I decided to jump right in the middle. Nothing more fun than joining the celebration...unless it's taking a friend with you. Be my guest~ Lots of folks to meet & prizes to win! Yeah!

To my new friends: Hi, I'm Carmen...blogger blogger now for a couple of years. What started as a means of capturing moments in our GraceFULL life so I wouldn't forget has become therapeutic AND celebratory of every day graces. It's a means of connecting with friends, family & others both near & far. To my delight, it's introduced me to some pretty fantastic folks to whom I say "Welcome"! Peek in on us now & then...leave a hello before you go~
Please do me a bloggy big favor. As a finalist in the Vicks Caring Tributes contest, I need your vote!! I am 1 out of 8 vying for a $10,000 prize package that includes the ultimate comfort get way. What mom couldn't use THAT? So please go here & vote! Bunches & buckets of thanks!
UPDATE: This is right up my ally~ If you think you know where this photo is taken, skip on over to Genesis Moments: A Writer's Journey and leave a comment. You'll be entered to win a giveaway of Amazon proportion! Tell her you're visiting by way of GracefullDays~

Nice to "meet" you and thanks for hosting such a great party! As a friend to many with kids in early intervention, I have a lot of respect for the work you do. My own twin preemies have been doing good so far but I've watched the differnce that your work does in my twin mommy friends' children. Good luck with the vicks contest.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Carmen, and thanks for the well wishes. I loved your video about beautiful Gracie and went over to VICKS to vote for you.

I'm still down with the flu, and my adorable soon to be 4 year old is such a man. He's all about the solution. "I love you mum, but you need to take more vitamins," he says. And when I ran out of cough drops, he's like "I'll go to the shop and get more." So sweet.

Thanks for hostng a great party.
:) Kelly

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I have enjoyed visiting your blog. I went to the vicks site - is that all I needed to do to vote? I didn't see anything else.
I'd love to share the excerpt you have about the lion on my blog - would that be ok?
Have a great time at the party. Nice to meet you.
Blessings,
Kim

What a beautiful story/video about your daughter when you were sick. I think kids really come through in situations like this. Good luck with the competition.

Hi Graceful,

This isnt really a comment on your blog although I appreciate anyone who enjoys Hillsong worship. I met a girl from Bavaria at Hillsong Church in Sydney on the weekend 2 weeks ago. Now im trying to find her that she has returned to Germany from Australia- I notice you are from Amburg in South Germany so I wonder if you could tell me the main Pentecostal churches in Amberg that may appreciate Hillsong style worship so I could write to them and perhaps she may be a member of their congregation. I am doing the same for other towns in Bavaria. I know it’s an unusual request but I hope you can help.

Kind Regards
Allan
