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.

Here is how to purchase a luminaria for the Relay for Life.
If you go onto the website (www.lancasterrelayforlife.org) you can click on the icon on the left that says luminaria. When that pops up there is a link on that page that says 'click here to download the form', click on that and a pdf form comes up. That should have all the directions. Luminiria's are in honor or memory of someone who has had cancer. They will be surrounding the track where we walk and will stay lit all night. I will be getting one for Livi and others can get one for her too if they want.

It's that time again....

This year I am the team captian for a Relay for Life team. We will be walking for 24 hours on June 6th and 7th. Okay so each of us might not be walking the full 24 hours but our team will be. This will be our first Relay and I'm excited to be part of it. All the money we raise goes to the American Cancer Society. If you are thinking of making donations this year consider sponsoring out team. Any checks can be made out to The American Cancer Society and mailed to us at Lovely Ladybugs, PO Box 374, Brownstown, PA 17508 or click here and donate online. Also if you would like to fund raise at your place or work or your school consider planning a dress down day where everyone pays $1-$5 and gets to dress down for the day. Or seeing if you can have a baseball cap day at school where each kid pays a dollar to wear a baseball cap to school.

Also if you would like to purchase a Luminaria in honor of someone you know that has died from cancer you can do so. They cost $10 and I will let you know what information you need to include with the purchase. I still need to request the forms and then I will have more information.

We are also doing Light the Night again this year. Light the Night is to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. For that we aren't asking for monetary donations. Instead we are going to hold a giant garage sale Saturday, August 2nd at our house. Before that date we will have two seperate donation days where we will go to the parking lot of Giant/ AC Moore and take donations of items to sell at the garage sale. My parents will be taking donations from people in Indiana or Pittsburgh and then bringing them to my house. Also we will take baked goods the day before at my house. So keep checking back for the dates.

Please consider donating to either or both causes. Finding a cure for cancer and leukemia would change/ save so many lives.

For 9 months Livi and I lived in one body. We did everything together. I remember feeling missing the feeling of having her in my belly when she was born. But holding her in my arms was even better. Now she's been living in my heart for 9 months. Not nearly as good. My girl oh how I miss you. Not a day goes by that I don't think "Livi would have loved that" or "if Livi was here she would...". You are never far from my thoughts and never outside of my heart. Smooches baby.
