Help Bring Rylea Faith Home...

I just came to know about this amazing family this week. Carla and her husband have 8 children. They are working to bring their 9th child home, a little girl they hope to name Rylea Faith who is currently in Vietnam. They are holding a raffle to raise funds and are going to be giving away a very nice Nokia camera. Their blog is 'Can't See Straight With 8'

Plug for a Worthwhile Cause...

Like my new cool signature that's on all of my posts now? Want some of this blog jewelry? You know you do. Well, yes it was Verna the Blogfairy who hooked me up, go see her and set yourself up. She is donating the proceeds to our girlfriend Robin at Red Thread Stitches to help her bring Mia Hope home.

Shameless Plug...

It's Monday!....With Some Babyshower Announcements

It really a gorgeous morning today. It's supposed to be sunny and 80 degrees. I'm the only awake though, evidently Eli and Daddy are unable to make it out of bed. I am looking at them both right now. Eli came into our bed in the middle of the night with a cough.

Our weekend was fantastic with fishing, boating and some time with friends. I spent a lot of time getting the new blog together with Verna. Thank you to my darling friend Verna who designed and built the amazing blog. If you would like to be a part of it, let me know. No Place Like Home

Baby Shower #2
There is a second baby shower in June for Kelly of 'Katie's Antics' for her darling Elizabeth. She would like everyone to send a quilt square and a wish for Elizabeth. Isn't that a fun idea?
