50,000 - Check It Out!

Do you own a pair of shoes? Chances are you own more than one. Have a blog? Want to have it redone?

Check out this worthy cause! Danielle, who redoes blogs beautifully, is offering to redo people's blogs for $55 and donate $5 towards this charity that will provide shoes to those who don't have any.

If you wish to simply donate $5 which will give two pairs of shoes to needy children, here is their site:

I already emailed her to redo mine! I can't think of a better cause to donate money towards. People need shoes.

Ever Try Something for the First Time???

And absolutely LOVE it?? Well that's what happened when Gabriel tried scrambled eggs for the first time last weekend! Not sure at first. They're kind of squishy and then devouring them.

Prayers Requested

I normally don't post asking for prayers, but my heart is breaking for this family. A family I don't know. A family I most likely will never meet. But I am human and right now I cannot possibly imagine their pain. Her blog is below if you want to read about their journey. The bottom line is that they were ready to take their adopted child home and the birth mother changed her mind at the last minute. Having gone through an adoption myself, that concern was always there until the last moment when the adoption became final.

Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

Gabriel Walking For The First Time!

Below is a YouTube video of Gabriel walking last Tuesday for the first time all by himself. Of course he did it at daycare and we didn't get to see it. But I captured it on video to watch this moment over and over again. Does it possibly get any sweeter than this??

Gabriel had been walking with us while holding our hands. But he tooks his first steps all by himself last Tuesday, Nov 4, 2008. To say that watching this video moves me beyond words, is putting it mildy. Watching him take those steps are simply priceless. You might not see what I see, but that is why we love our kids above anyone else's. The smallest of achievements are like winning gold in the US Olympics.

Truly Quite a Mess!

Pasta Disaster!
