We've always known our CMOM visitors are the best, but now you guys have given us another reason to brag about you...thanks to your visits this past weekend ($1 for every admission price sold went towards this effort), we were able to send nearly $2,000 to God's Littlest Angels Orphanage ( in Port-au-Prince, Haiti! With a nursery, a toddler house, and a new orphanage complex on the way, this organization has been dedicated to taking care of Haitian children since 1994. CMOM has a special connection with GLA, of our previous employees is in the process of adopting a little boy from the orphanage. Your contributions will help provide little Wadson and other children in need with food, shelter, and other everyday necessities. So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

"...and the world will be as one..."

This week, after one of the worst earthquakes in recent history, the world has joined together to support the people of Haiti...and CMOM wants to help, too. That's why we've dedicated this holiday weekend to a special "Helping Hands for Haiti: Children Helping Children" program. A portion of every admission sold will go to the relief effort. There will also be special jars at the admissions desk where kids can learn the virtures of charity and helping others by donating coins from home. Plus, we'll have a special card-making session Saturday afternoon for kids to express their support in a creative way. So bring your mini-philanthropists this Saturday, Sunday and Monday and make a difference!

Pictures from New Year's at Noon!

We always have fun here at CMOM, but New Year's at Noon was a TOTAL BLAST!

We got the morning started off right with a magic show...everyone loved it!
There were crafts galore (hey, that's my back!).

I think I was just as excited about the "Junkanoo" theme as the kids!

Busy, busy, busy!

Man, look at that crowd! Everyone lined up for the countdown.

Here's my favorite HR guy ever, Cliff- he and I got to stand on the top ledges to throw out prizes at the strike of noon.

We had a special all-girls guest band-- The Hot Pink Paper Clips -- to end the day...they were awesome!

"I Have a Dream..."

Join us for
Martin Luther King, Jr's
Birthday Celebration!
Monday, January 18
In 1963, Dr. King's revolutionary "I Have a Dream" speech inspired our country by reminding us that the U.S.A. was founded on the basis of freedom. Come help us celebrate this hero with our annual MLK birthday party. With face painting, arts & crafts, games, and our own "peace quilt," this is sure to be a party to remember!
