March for Babies

In the seven years since our first March For Babies, we've never had such beautiful weather.  What a gorgeous day to be the ambassador family.  Thank you to all who gave and came out to show your support.  You have no idea what it means to me! 

Sadly, I was so busy and nervous that I didn't get very many pictures.  But we had a great time!

March Is Tomorrow!

Hope to see you there!  Our family will be taking the stage about 9:30 am.  I'm so nervous as I don't believe I've ever even spoken with a mic before.  If you want in the group picture, plan to be there around 9.  The kid zone area (with inflatables) opens at 8:30 am and lunch will be provided afterwards by Papa Johns.  Really hope you can make it.  There is also still time to make a donation to our team at 

Being The Ambassador

I asked Olivia to say a few words about being the ambassador this year.  Haha!  Not sure I should give her a mic tomorrow.

Field Trip

Today Olivia's kindergarten class went to Tanganyika Wildlife Park.  It was fun, but freezing.  That wind was just awful! Brrrr.

She liked the lemurs, but decided against feeding them.  

And why is the playground always the highlight?

Kitty Kelsey

Olivia is not much of a dog person as they are a little too "in your face" for her.  She, however, LOVES her cat.  Cats have been so good for her. As a baby and toddler, Olivia did not like to be hugged or really touched that much. She had to learn how to accept a cat's affection and not shy away from it. She still struggles with this a bit, but now gives the best hugs (mainly because we just kept hugging her anyway.) Kelsey didn't start out being anyone's particular cat, but she sure attached herself to Olivia and now the two of them are the sweetest pair.  In fact, Olivia wants a Kelsey party for her next birthday because "that is what she's really into" right now.  LOL!  Hopefully they make diluted calico plates?
