Our week in iphone photos w.4

Okay... still not so good a getting the phone out for photos; hence the lack of iphone post last week but lets to this!

Liam is one cool kat!

exibit A: Sup yo!

Donor appreciate night with the Vickie Honeycutt Foundation- one of Liam's many supporters.

Sushi night out! Liam enjoyed his usual fruit and crackers. Kid has no idea what he is missing.

"Smile, Cheese" that's what LIam says when he sees a camera, or thinks you are taking a picture with your phone. I was texting, but he's too cute, had to stop.

Trying out the new seat for Daddy's car. NO PICTURES PLEASE!

I had lunch with my friend and he son today. Connor LOVES skeeball- Sorry Connor, I guess you belong at our house.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal

Today an angel in Charlotte grew her wings. Claire had a rare cancer, neuroblastoma.

I cannot say enough I HATE CANCER!

Every day, 35 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer – 7 of those children
will not survive. Cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease in children.

Our week in iphone photos w.3

Our week started off business as usual... Kid locking himself in the dog crate

playing on his computer

Mom getting some sewing done

I had a baby shower to go to, which I forgot about (DOH!) so I went shopping in my LCF THREADZ closet. Can't wait to meet you baby Livi!

Who else's child can destroy a house in 3 seconds flat? Everyone? OK! Told you it was normal Brian.

We were struggling this week. Liam was sick.

Notice the red face? Yup all chapped up from whipping his nose.

Oh well... We need some fresh air! Isn't he too stinkin' cute in the sun glasses... If only he'd keep the on.

And finally, the day Liam decided to wear my rosary ALL. DAY. LONG.

Prayers Needed for Kaitlyn

Remember Liam's friendKaitlyn?

We met Kaitlyn through our playgroup. Kailtyn's mom was a great support for us while Liam was sick, she understood everything.

Unfortunately we don't see kaitlyn much anymore as she has been home bound for a while, and it is too dangerous for her to be around others.

Kaitlyn's disease has progressed to the final stages. I ask you to please keep Kaitlyn and her family in your thoughts and prayers. I pray for comfort for Kaitlyn and strength for her family. I pray Kaitlyn feels all the love this world has for her.

Wordless{ish} Wednesday

So maybe not so wordless. But I need help!

Liam's birthday is now 59 days away. Although I have a lot of ideas started for his party, I need help for another event.

Last year in honor of Liam's birthday and impending surgery we released 365 balloons sharing his story.

I want to do this again... but I want to reach more than just the Carolina area. I would like to see balloons released from a multiple locations. I have some ideas, but need some help.

If you are interested in helping please email me and I will assign you a duty :)

Operation Excercise!

Not sure where I orginally found this poem... but I LOVE IT! Yup thats how I feel right now!

Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house, not one thing would fit me...not even a blouse. My body was sagging, but I didn’t care, I just hoped that at work, no one would stare.

The cookies I’d nibbled all nestled in frosting. All the holiday parties were fun but exhausting. H’orderves by the dozen, yummy eggnog I'd taste, to my absolute horror had gone straight to my waist!

When I got on the scale, there arose such a clatter; I sprang right off it, to see what was the matter. Away to my computer I flew like a flash! I’ll Google and pay for a crash diet with cash!

I rapidly reflected on meals I'd prepared, the gravies, the sauces, and beef (not too rare). The wine & the rum balls, the bread & the cheese! It would’ve been RUDE saying "No thank you please."

“Yes why not, I’ll take it!” “Yes give me another!” “More gravy, more yams, more nuts and more butter!” Go ahead pour it on, I’ve not hit a wall! Now dash it with sprinkles and cover it all!

So upstairs to dress, in my Husband's old shirt, and to the bed to do battle, with the zipper on my skirt. More a yell then a whisper, words formed in my head, while visions of me soon passing out on my bed.

I should dress all in fur from my head to my foot... But if it gets sunny, that idea is caput!
I could layer myself and cover my back... So when I bend over no one sees all the fat.

As I lay paralyzed with my hand on my belly, I realized it felt like a bowl full of jelly.
Thank goodness for Spanks! (I’m their biggest fan!) But I can’t spend all winter disguised as a man!"

When what to my wondering eyes should appear... but a chubby reflection standing there in my mirror! With a large muffin-top that’s been making me sick; I knew in a moment, a solution was needed QUICK!

I’m round, I’m plump and I feel like an elf,
And I’m no longer laughing in spite of myself!

So AWAY with the last of the cream cheese dip! Get rid of the chocolates and crackers and chips! Every last crumb in the house must be banished-Till every last pound I have gained has vanished!

Liam Legs

Why do I love Liam Legs so much?

Maybe its because it was the first thing I learned how to sew.

Or maybe its because Liam legs is where fashion meets function

So cute on babies with a onesie
They are adorable on girls under skirts
Hip for children as armwarmers

Convient for diaper changers
AND oh so helpful for potty training

Liam has been OBSESSED with the potty lately. He has had his own potty for a while now. We sit him on it occassionally, but he's not even 2 yet so its nothing we have been pushing.

Recently he has been coming to tell us when he is wet or "P.U." So we have been sitting on the potty more often, rarely going, but at least he isn't afraid.

We have also been trying to teach him to pull down his pants since he will have to be able to do that when he needs to use the potty.

Well we haven't been so successful at pulling down of the pants. He gets the idea and tugs at them, but can't pull them down.

So... HELLO... practice what you preach! Liam legs are GREAT for potty training. No pants to pull up and down.
