Madelyn loves her little poncho!

I am really looking forward to summertime....warm weather, boating, playing outside, going on walks, camping, riding on the pontoon, campfires, etc., etc., etc.! CAN WE SAY SRPING FEVER?
Yes, this winter is dragging at this point. I DO love the snow and the pretty scenes of winter...but cold and ice? OK...on to something super exciting:

I came across this adorable little poncho for Miss Madelyn!

This is from Skipping Hippos! She makes quality ponchos...and aren't they super adorable! Of coarse the
little princess wearing it is totally irresistable! Madelyn is modeling the Penelope poncho. Skipping Hippos offers 19 different ponchos, and 2 jackets. They are so cute! I can just imagine how many times Miss Madelyn will wear this for different occasions. I know I would love one to match her! :) Skipping Hippos is currently supporting the ONOCOLOGY patients at Kaiser Hospital. Every few months, Skipping Hippos sends warm, fuzzy ponchos to kids going through radiation treatments. One patient is very special, Kendal. When Kendal was 3 mos. old she was diagnosed with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma (a muscle tumor) she had 5 surgeries, 42 weeks of surgery and has undergone several scans. Kendal finished chemo 22 mos ago. (She'll turn 3 next week!) Her last CT scan was one month ago and it came out clear. That is super!! Unfortunately, more and more children are diagnosed each month with several different types of Cancer. The most common is Leukemia and the treatment for that lasts 2 1/2 years. The hospital that Kendal was treated at is Kaiser Permanente, in Sacramento, Ca. If someone is interested in helping in someway they could contact Janelle (jabmcleod@msn.com), and she could set something up with Cammie (the child life specialist). You can bless children going through tough times by teaming with Skipping Hippos~

Thank you Skipping Hippos for sponsoring this review!! Madelyn is totally loving her Skipping Hippos!

She loves feeling the fabric on her face, and munching on the little balls...but crawling in the poncho is a good challenge. Soon she will be walking, so no problem!

She is definately sporting a sweet poncho! Very cute! I like that the company is giving to sick children, it makes their day when someone thinks of them.
