Please Help!

A friend of mine is going to Africa next month and sent me the following email about helping out some families in Africa. It's amazing to me that only $21 US dollars would help feed a family of 5 for ONE MONTH! That wouldn't last a week at our house. We likes to EAT! Anyways, I'm posting this to try and help get the word out in hopes that we can get a ton of people to help donate money and supplies for her and her husband to take over next month. If any of you readers (even if we don't know each other and you're just stalking me) would like to help out in anyway, please leave a comment, email me or call me ASAP! What a perfect time of year to help others in need. I always find that I feel of the Christmas Spirit when I help those less fortunate then I.

Stephen and I are traveling to Zimbabwe Africa over Christmas and after talking with our friends in Harare have found that LDS members and many others are in desperate need of everyday supplies and food. We will be able to distribute many supplies and also be able to buy Mini Meal (similar to corn meal) to take to families.

$21.00US will feed a family of 5 for 1 month by purchasing 3- five pound bags of Mini Meal.

Along with Mini meal we will purchase or provide them with seed packets, salt, oil & 2 bars of soap to wash their clothes and themselves.

Other items that were mentioned:

Cloth Diapers & Pins

Ivory Soap for babies

Seeds (tomato, onion, squash, peppers, corn, etc)

Pencils with sharpeners


Soap for adults

Anti-Bacterial Soap

Toothbrushes and paste

Tylenol, Advil or other

Neosporin or other antiseptic cream


Bug Repellent

$ for food

We appreciate your consideration. Anything is helpful because everything is needed.

If you are interested in helping please email or call. We’re asking that all items be ready or delivered by Saturday, December 20th.

This is our other little niece. She is so stinkin cute! Dayle sent me this pic and I'm glad she did cuz my blog is plastered with Little Man and Bugs, but none of her. We don't get to see her near as much as we'd like either. Dayle said this is what Cas really wanted to be for Halloween. Look at that little smile-LOVE IT!

Reading in Public


It is official, I have put a self banning on myself. No more reading in Wal Mart-EVER! I was there the other day buying some groceries and since Jory is out of town working, I figured I could lolly-gage and read. So I picked up a copy of this book, "The Miracle of the Wooden Shoes." It was sooooooooo good. So good, that I was bawling in the middle of Wal-Mart. Yeah, a little embarrassing... No more of that. At any rate, this is an AMAZING book that just came out that I thought about putting on my Christmas list. However, I have decided it's too good to have to wait until Christmas Day and should be read, shared and enjoyed over and over again through out the Christmas Season this year.

Lovin Life with the Kids.


Long post ahead!

I couldn't help myself, these pics make me GIGGLE! I went over to Mike & Geena's after work to take some pics of the kids and oh what fun I had! These kids will NOT sit and pose for me at all, but it's ok cuz they turned out so much fun. Snuff took this first one of me and the kids on the steps. Clearly they are too excited to trick or treat to pose for a pic.


Flying Bugs... man, she thought this was SO fun! LOOK at those dimples!

I LOVE this shot of Kobs, but it made me depressed at the same time cuz he looks so much older and grown up. **sniff, sniff**

If you look closely, you'll notice that a part of black tool from her
tutu got caught on her pumpkin so it was dragging while she was walking.

Silly girl!

Kobe was very into his character as you can tell.

Kobe and his buddies. I don't know the kid in the orange shirt, but he
kept begging me to take his picture.

I don't know why I love this shot of her, but I just do.

I love little man! These were fun to take of him up in the tree, totally has the Halloween feeling you know?

This is about as good as it gets for posing these two...


Man what a cute little sucker!


Her little expression makes me giggle in this one. She's getting
faster with those legs of hers.

LOL... What a cute little bum!
