Good Morning Everyone and Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group!

Good Morning Everyone! There is a lot going on in our group, so hopefully I don't forget anything this morning.


Next Saturday I am hosting a baby shower for Dawn at 'Our Little China Girl' to welcome her beautiful daughter Lucy Joy. Please let me know if you would like to display this darling sidebar graphic to get the word out. Thank you Daleea for designing it, it is absolutely darling!

April at 'The Road to Siji' is selling her taggies to make money for her adoption. These are the ones you all have been bidding on at the auction. They have bringing in some wonderful bids. So, if you want one, get over to her blog and place an order!


Lastly, Marina is home with her beautiful daughter Sarah, Congratulations to the family! Their blog is 'Over the Rainbow'. Please drop by and welcome their new child.

*THE CHAT ROOM IS NOW CLOSED...HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE!

You Have the Power! Bring A Child Home from Ethiopia.

You know 'that girl', our gypsy friend of a thousand blogs? She's looking for a sign. She is looking to Ethiopia and waiting for confirmation that she is on the right path. Here's her barter with herself...if she raises $250.00 by her 40th birthday...she is going to Ethiopia for a child. She has $102 raised so far, so not much more is needed.

Let's support 'that girl'

Ginormous Leap of Faith
If I raise the $250 application fee for our adoption agency, I'll take it as God's stamp of approval to go to Ethiopia. I made the deadline my birthday, August 8th. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be. I have to at least try, I am tossing/turning over this every night.

Zach's Birthday Photos..

Zach's cake..I tell you I was stumped at what to get for a 16 year old, but I think D&W did a great job!



This is Zach and his Godfather Walt.


This is Zach and I. It's strange to see him so much taller than me : )

Happy 16th Birthday Zachary!

Today is my son Zachary's 16th Birthday! I can tell that this is going to be an emotional day for me. This is a big birthday. He will be getting his driver's license and is buying a car from his father. I am so proud of him. He doesn't want a 'big deal'. So, I got him some chocolates from Mary Ann's which are his favorites. He has asked for money, so we are giving him money for his birthday. I have a cake to pick up at noon and friends and family will be sharing his special day with him.

Happy Birthday Zach. I love you more than I could ever put into words. You have carried my heart in the palm of your hand since the day you were born.

Busy Busy Busy!







We had so many visitors over the 4th of July that it was just a fabulous crazy time. All of our neighborhood kids were here in full force. Aunt Sandy and Uncle Dan came. Aunt Trish and Uncle Scott and Josh and Brandon were here. We had a fabulous time. Lots of food, fishing, swimming and campfires.
Sorry to the Sat Chat ladies! I ended up with a full house on Sat. morning, so I was unable to get our group together.
I hope you all had a fantastic 4th!
