Recent Happenings

We did one final bake sale last night. We stuck with baking whole loaves and selling just those plus some Amish Friendship Bread starters. I think we were able to raise around $200! Thanks a bunch to the Marnae, Kim, and Sara who helped make yummy goodies for the sale. A big thanks to Suzanne for thinking about us and letting us set up for her mom's night out event! She gave special discounts for people buying from our sale or bringing items for Ronald McDonald House. I'll have to take a picture of the HUGE tub of donations I have to take down there this week!
Just a few more cards I've made this past week. Christmas time is here!
While I was at the bake sale on Friday, one of the other vendors there came over to give me a wonderful massage using her essential oils. We were talking and she had been following our story from around the time Eli was first sick. During our conversation, she told me her sister had lost 3 babies to Werding-Hoffman. That is the older name for SMA Type 1. It was sad to hear of another family who had experienced this loss not once, but three times. Thankfully her sister does have a 13 year old who is healthy.
Tonight came the sad news that we lost another baby in the SMA world. Beautiful Owen lost his battle with this horrible disease. Please keep his family in your thoughts (and prayers if you pray) this week. My heart is broken for them.

Today made 10 months that we have been without our beautiful boy and I miss him more and more every day.

And your cards are so cute! Are you selling them in packs? If so, how are they available?
