My new endever




Yes, my friends, I am a sewing maniac. Pants are my latest, are they not the cutest things you have ever seen? These are my first pair ever and they turns out great!!!Love them to bits, the fact that they have owls on them just lead to my obsession. So what have you all made lately? Ya know, in all your free time?  ha

I've got a plan

So yesterday I posted that I was going on a break. It didn't last long, I know. In the past 24 hours some things have been reviled to me. My heart is breaking.

I was on the Reece's Rainbow site and fell in love with this sweet girl.
Meet Maeve. She will he a year old on January 6th. Her sweet little face melted my heart. I'm in love and at the same time I am sick. Sickened to think that her first birthday will be spent in an orphanage, with no family or friends to spoil her with love, no cake and ice cream, no hugs or kisses, no one will sing her Happy Birthday, for her it will be just another day. What will we be doing on January 6th? Most likely recovering from a Christmas full of delicious food and an overabundance of new things. Perhaps recovering from a New Years Eve party full of memories surrounded by the ones you love. But Maeve will just be, laying in a crib completely unaware of a life outside the walls of the orphanage. This crushes my heart. It's not fair. I feel God gently tugging on my heart, asking me to do more than just hurt for these children. Im committing to pray over each of the waiting children on the Reece's Rainbow site each week. Im praying that God opens doors, moves mountains and creates a group of people in my life that will join us in doing more. Im praying families will come forward, to help raise awareness, money and yes, adopt. These children were made in Christs PERFECT image, they are here on this Earth for a reason and they deserve a chance. Im praying for BIG things to happen, will you join me? Will you pray daily for these children? Will you work on bringing awarness? Will you give up your life so that others have life? It's so worth it and it's rewards reach far beyond the physical ones here on Earth. God us me, God use us!!

Nothing

I've been racking my brain all week trying to come up with something, anything to blog about. Needless to say, I've got nothing. So, I've decided to go on a break. I will return in a few weeks, unless of coarse something blog worthy happens sooner.

Just the way I like it

Gone are the lazy days of summer...

Gone are the family get together's at parks...

Gone are county fair's...

Things have been, shall I say, boring?? Probably just jinxed myself, but it's true. Since Josh has gone back to work, it's been business as usual around here. We have therapy up the wazoo, schedule's, appointments and work to get done. 
It's back to working on walking...

And sitting up...

Things are boring and that's just the way I like it!!

One more picture for you

Boys will be boys...

Just add it to the list

Bronchitis
Pneumonia (to many to count)
Rotavirus

and our latest ailment to add to the list....C-Diff.

Poor Eli has been battling the runny poops for weeks and we FINALLY got a good number 2 sample from him...the results confirm that there is a nasty little critter (or many) living in his intestines. Ugh. We are hoping that after 2 weeks of Flagyl he will have nice number 2's. But for now we wash, bleach and repeat all things in our house to keep this nasty cootie away from big brother. 

After that lovely picture...hope you all have a great weekend!!
