Contribute to EB

Meet Kate, she is my amazing 4yr old, she loves life, she has Epidermolysis Bullosa or EB for short. EB has been called "THE worst DISEASE YOU NEVER HEARD OF" its rare and we are very, very lucky that Kate's is mild but occasionally she still suffers. We tell her she is special and sometimes she will tell me that she doesn't want to be special anymore. She is also brave and rarely complains. Anyway, its time again to sign up at Ralphs for community contribution, all you have to do is take a few minutes to sign up and every time you shop using your Ralphs Reward card they will donate money to your charity. Click here to sign up for the Community Contribution program (you will need your Ralphs Card #) and the NPO # for EB Medical Research Foundation is 81963.

Best thing about cooking Salmon for dinner?
Left over salmon sandwiches for lunch. Real simple, cold salmon on a sourdough roll, a little lemon juice and some arugula with Caesar dressing. I don't usually add the arugula but I had it and thought it would add extra nutrients. Delish and the best thing, super easy.

2nd wind

So I have been reading NieNie's blog, I started at the beginning and have been reading it over the past few nights, I LOVE her blog, she is amazing and I really hope she makes it. Anyway, I have a 2nd wind to keep up my blog, she kept hers short and sweet and I think it was brilliant so I am going to do the same -

Today the girls and I went on an outing to Toys R Us, meet Neigh and Donkey

As I was driving home my girls were happy and my heart was full.

P.S. don't forget prayers for Nie

Big Day

Happy Birthday to...

Bella Cullen
Oh and also me!! Yes, yes its my birthday but (have you read Twilight yet? if not, go get it, its brilliant.) I seem to have more in common with Bella than just a birthday, I also dislike gatherings of people that is centered around moi, I also happen to be in love with an amazing man who is handsome, selfless, an amazing kisser.... and who loves me even though he is way better than I am. He also threw me a party, it was supposed to be a surprise but I kinda figured out over the last few days he was planning something and then last night our little Sara had croup so the cat really had to come out of the bag as we couldn't really let a bunch of unsuspecting persons into our house with a sick 2yr old. Anyway, a few still came and Amber and Gina did some amazing decorations and we ended up eating to much cake and playing cards, it was actually tons of fun and Sara is feeling better. Here she is in all her glory with the big shiner she got a week ago, it was Sara vs the coffee table and she came out of that one a little banged up but that too is way better.

So another year, I have decided that today is the day I should make my resolutions as this is when my new year begins, so I am re-dedicating myself to my goals made at the beginning of the year. Thanks to everyone who braved our house, your all amazing and I'm grateful to count you as my friends. mmmmm... just re-read that, must work on my grammar, to many really and so's, too tired tonight will work on that for the next post.

So this may be weird but I really like David Archuleta's new song Crush. I was listening to it tonight and I was remembering the songs he did on AI, most were slow songs and his 1st release is a pop song, I totally downloaded it.

I'm a grouch

Today I was a grouchy mom, I needed this:-

"Never forget that these little ones are the sons and daughters of God and that yours is a custodial relationship to them, that He was a parent before you were parents and that He has not relinquished His parental rights or interest in these little ones. Now, love them, take care of them...welcome them into your homes and nurture and love them with all of your hearts." President Hinkley
Sorry girls, I love you more than words can say and I'll be a better mom tomorrow.

loved it!

Just finished the whole saga, from Twilight to Breaking dawn in about a week, couldn't put it down. Thanks Gina and Charlene for lending my the books, thanks Eric for letting me read so much. I really do have a great husband, he looked at me one night and said "what is this book about?" he picked up Twilight and began reading it. He finished it and is now on New Moon, he said it was good until it got too sappy!! being a woman, I loved it, it did get on my nerves in some places but over all brilliant, just brilliant, a wonderful read to escape into.
