What I Won!

 I'm joining in with What We Won Wednesday to share and say a little thank you for all the things I've won in blog giveaways lately.  Really, I have a lot of giveaways I've won that I meant to blog about in thanks, but never got around to this will be a nice reminder to do that.  But this week, I'm just going to start with a couple things I got in the mail this month.

First, I won these really cool Charlie Harper ABC/123 Nesting Blocks at Mama Hill.

You notice the first thing he did with them was stack 
them upside down.  :-)

This blurry action shot shows the blocks a little better.

The other thing I won  was a Robby Wash Ball at Girly Girl Giveaways--that's a year's worth of laundry detergent in one little ball!  It really works too...I've tried it out and my clothes come out clean. 

What am I going to do with the money I'm saving?  Well, part of it is going to go to suppor the Mercy House Maternity Home in Kenya.  This is a ministry just beininng, created by a woman from the US and a women in Kenya to help young pregnant girls in an area where there is currently no program helping them.  They are starting small.  They want to provide 6 beds in a safe gaurded house, pre-natal care, counceling (as many of these girls have been forced into prostitution at a young age), meals, and biblical well as teach them skills they can use to provide for themselves and their children after they graduate from the program so they don't have to return to prostitution.
