Save the Babies and Win

The March of Dimes is a organisation that is very close to my heart.

Big K was born 6 weeks early do to pre-eclampsia. We were blessed that she was born healthy and the only issue she had was maintaining her body temp. Little K was born at 39 weeks, but that was only after 12 weeks 5 days on bed rest due to signs of pre-eclampsia showing it's ugly head.

While we did not need the help of the March of Dimes, they would have been there if we had needed them. Because of this, C and I (ok, more me than him) decided that we would support them each year as they help thousands of babies a year. If you think about it, you probably someone who has needed them.

Now, for the fun part. For every $10 you donate between now and Feb. 28, you will earn one chance to win the movie Peter Pan on DVD.

You can donate by clicking on the March of Dimes widget on my sidebar or by clicking here.


Valentine's Day

I've never been a big fan of Valentines Day. Not sure why, but I just haven't.

Today I took Big K to her party at school. It was also her last day there. She starts a new school on Tuesday.

Then I went to the gym while C was at an interview. For dinner tonight, Chick-fil-a.

Here are some pictures from the day.


Sister Sunday

These girls are my life, my heart. I pray that they grow up and truly understand the meaning of sisterhood and are always there for each other no matter what.


Popple's Birthday

Today would have been Popple's birthday. We went out to the cemetery to place flowers and release balloons. 

Big K drew a picture for him which we attached to the balloons so that they could take the picture to Popple in Heaven.

Little K has two middle names. Her second one is in memory of Popple. His middle name was Neal so we added a "y" to it to make it more feminine to make it Nealy. When we put her down beside the marker, she smiled and cooed and was as happy as could be.

Popple's two great grand babies.

Big K had a really hard time leaving. She kept running back to say bye. It broke my heart to see her that way. I think we may try to go out there more regularly to keep up the site and let Big K have some time with him.
