October 7 Meeting Recap

Our focus for October is The Well Woman/Breast Cancer Awareness. We had our very own, Nicole Casavant, come and share with us. Nicole was very generous...with her information, as well as her door prizes for correctly answering questions from her talk. We so appreciated her insight as she answered our questions varying from birth control to nursing to all women parts-related thoughts. She is a treasure and a wealth of knowledge. (I'm so thrilled that she is having a baby girl within the next 5 weeks).

Of course, the food was amazing (thank you to those ladies, for preparing something for all of us) and we had a very fun icebreaker.......Dress the Baby As Fast As You Can. (Erin Ramsey, I have no idea where your large baby doll came from, but I'm glad that I didn't deliver her.) It was a hoot watching you girls pass your dolls from one mom to the next.

Though our craft time was pretty short, I know that most of you finished it or just decided to take it home. I thought that it was a nice touch for our craft girls to make sure that we know we are "worth it", especially when we look at our key chains that we made. We are worth our monthly self exams and our annual well woman visits. As a mom, our health is important. :)

Here are the announcements, in case you weren't able to join us (there were several of you out...I hope that everything is OK):
