To be fair

Since Ben decided to wear clothes and allow his picture to be taken yesterday we had a little fun making silly faces and taking photos. He seriously is the funniest kid I have ever known! I love him!

On a side note, I have begun also blogging on a blog a friend started and would like to welcome you to either join us or follow along. Living in Northwestern Pennsylvania, right on Lake Erie, we get A LOT of Lake Effect snow, like as in over four feet in the past week just with one storm system. This causes many of us to hibernate, stay indoors and warm ourselves with comfort food. Katie started this blog in an effort to get motivated and get outside even if only for a few minutes each day and photograph the world from our viewpoint. It has been fun so far and it has forced me to trudge out in the snow if only to take out the trash.

You can check it out is pretty fun, and she would be happy to have you join if you would like! :)

I checked out the blog and it seems like a different PLANET compared to my life in good ol' South Central Texas.

How does anyone even make it to work? We shut down if there is ANY ice! Well... not me. I'm in the disaster field so that's when we work the most! You must explain to those of us who never experience living conditions like that!

Hey girl,

Just checking in. Life with Sophia is wonderful but I don't seem to find time to sit down and read about my friends. I love all the pictures!!! Adorable. Blessings to you and your family.

Thanks for the cute post on FB. The flower was a gift. I found some similar ones at a store called Children's Orchard. Let me know if you want me to look for one for Hope.

Blessings on your weekend!

Hi! My name is Sarah and I'm a long-time follower of your blog but a first-time commenter. I'm a college student who works with special needs kids. I also follow more than 200 blogs, and I'm sending a very special message to all the blogs I follow: YOU have the chance to be part of a miracle!

Chase Community Giving is awarding $1 million to 5 charities! The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is working to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy - and they could use the money!

Fast Facts:
- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants under the age of 2
- 50% of those diagnosed will not live to see their 2nd birthday
- kids with SMA lose the ability to sit, stand, walk, talk, eat, swallow, and breathe
- 1 in 40 people is a carrier
- the National Institute of Health says that SMA is the #1 CURABLE disease if given research funding
- right now there is NO cure and NO treatment

Want to change that? Vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation on the Chase Community Giving app on Facebook! You have five votes to tell the world that you want a CURE for SMA!

Tell your friends and blog contacts - let them know they could be part of a MIRACLE - be part of a CURE - and give kids a FUTURE!

Thank you!
