Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Fund Raiser

We have figured out our first fund raiser for the bone marrow drive. (I know I'm supposed to be letting Rachel handle all of this but I need something to do.) James and I ordered bracelets today. They are similar to the Yellow LiveStrong bracelets to support cancer.

Here are the options.
For Adults they all say "Alivia Rachel Haughery" and come in either purple or rainbow swirl (my personal favorite)
For Youth (2-13) they all say "Baby Livi" (thanks Samual, Grace and Eden for this nickname!) and come in rainbow swirl only.

We ordered 100 of each. If you get your address to me I will get them to you in the next 2 weeks (once we get them). If I have you address already just post how many, and colors. If I dont' have you address, post how many, what color and your address. I will delete all comments that have addresses after I get them so your address won't be on the blog for all to see. I will check the blog frequently so your address wont' be up for long at all. Promise.

The bracelets are $5 each and all proceeds will go to the bone marrow drive. Thanks. If we sell out then we will order more. The bracelets will arrive at our home early to mid next week.

My parents and I can deliver ones to people who live in Lancaster or Indiana and people have asked if they can send checks....that would be fine. Make them out to me and I will get them into the account.

Hi Emily & family,
I can't imagine what you are going through. You are all in our prayers. Thank you for continually giving us updates and how you are feeling. It's good to let things out the good and the bad. I'm glad for all the people in your lives to support you and the doctors and nurses that are so willing to find a cure. We prayed today at church for Alivia and family. I would like to have 6 bracelets. I don't know if your mom or dad is bringing some back to Indiana. 3youth and 2purple,1rainbow. Let us know and I'll get the bracelets from them or I'll give you our address.

Hi Emily,
What a great idea! No need to mail my bracelets...keep the money in your fundraiser! Just send them to school with your dad. I see him pretty often. I want one for everyone in my family....4 of the rainbow swirl, please. I will mail you a check tomorrow.
Each day I pray for something very specific for you and your family. Today it is for a good night's rest for you all.
Take care! Jill Piper

Oh, we so want bracelets! What a great idea, Em!!!

I'll give you our order and our money when we drop off more toys. Someone gave me more things today as a matter of fact. I should be in the toy drive business! I'm all about collecting toys! (Who knew?)

Church today was amazing...hope you felt the same way. I just adore your parents! So thankful we could pray with them! Thank you for including all of us in your journey with Alivia. God is being glorified.

More later...

What a great idea! We would like three youth sizes. I'm sure you have our address in the church directory. Will you bring them to church when they come in?

Please know that I think of you and pray for you and sweet Livi often in a day.

Hello Emily,
What a wonderful idea! I would love to join in. What a great way to be reminded all day to pray for God to heal Alivia. I would like to order 1 purple and 1 rainbow swirl. I will send the money to you. If your dad could bring them to school, that would be the easiest way to get them to me. You are a witness to more than you know. God has used this blog as a tool to reach many. Thank you for your example of a Godly woman who believes in Him and His miracles.
Many prayers.

Hey Emily:

I hope I am not too late to do this. I would like three bracelets (for the girls and I). One adult rainbow swirl and two youth rainbow swirls. I will write you a check for $15 and send it to your address. If you don't have anymore right now, I will just wait until you get some back in.
