Dancing with OUR Stars

Hi all!
Just wanted to invite all of you to an upcoming event that includes me putting on my dance shoes...yikes!! It's a fundraiser for the NF (neurofibromatosis) Clinic at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the Arkansas Chapter of the Children’s Tumor Foundation. I have been teamed up with a professional ballroom dancer from Arthur Murray Dance Studio, Jeremiah, and we'll be doing the Cha Cha. So much fun! Please consider attending the event...or you can also donate $5 to the cause and vote for us online. What a fun way to raise money for a great cause.
Thanks so much!!!

Here's the official letter regarding the event:

Friends of Christina:

I am writing to you on behalf of Christina Muñoz who has volunteered her valuable time to participate in our upcoming Gala, “Dancing with OUR Stars.” The Gala will benefit the NF (neurofibromatosis) Clinic at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the Arkansas Chapter of the Children’s Tumor Foundation.

As you may have guessed, YES, Christina will be dancing at our upcoming event - and she will be competing against fellow reporter, Jason Pederson, along with four other ‘Stars,’ including Scott Landers, Dr. Rolla Shbarou and Leslie Godwin. Each dancer will be paired with a professional from Arthur Murray Dance Studio and will compete against the other teams in a race to win the “crown.” Christina has dedicated her time and energy for this event and we hope you will help her get to the winner’s circle. This event is similar to a popular television program; however, there are some distinct differences. One major difference is the winner will be determined by the number of votes collected both at the event and prior to the event. Each vote is a donation of only $5.00, and Christina would very much appreciate your support. Every vote counts!

We ask that you consider participating in our event to help the children of Arkansas by casting your tax deductable vote. Votes may be cast online at www.ctfarkansas.org by using a credit card, or you may write a check payable to the Children’s Tumor Foundation and mail to Children’s Tumor Foundation, PO Box 7262, Little Rock, AR 72217. Be sure to indicate who you are voting for. Votes sent via U.S. Mail must be received by September 13 in order to be counted for the event and on-line voting closes September 13. For more information about the event or to purchase tickets to attend and see Christina dance in person, visit www.ctfarkansas.org (limited seating available).

Please don’t delay, send your vote(s) today and show your support for Christina to make it to the winner’s circle. We will be watching for your reply.

Kindest regards,
Lesley Oslica

Ballerina Girl

Sydney is very "girly"...she LOVES dressing up in her ballet outfits. Especially her tutu! She runs around saying "Tutu, tutu, tutu!!" I have several friends in that are ballerinas/dancers and they all made sure that Sydney had pink tights, a leotard, ballet shoes, and of course a tutu. The only problem is she never wants to take them off!!

El Faro

This is one of my favorite places in La Serena, Chile. It's called "El Faro" which means the lighthouse. It's right on the beach and is a well-known landmark. My husband and I had an outdoor wedding ceremony there nine years ago (hard to believe it's been that long ago!). Even though it's wintertime, it was still nice enough to walk on the beach. Sydney loved it! She now speaks a little Spanish and she kept yelling "agua" and running toward the ocean. So precious!!
