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.

Garage Sale

I mentioned a while ago that we are planning a huge garage sale at our house on August 2nd. We are going to be donating all the proceeds to the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. If you want to donate items to be sold or if you would like to make something for the bake sale that will be held at the same time let me know. We will be having a Junk drop off on July 22nd from 6pm-9pm at the parking lot of Giant/AC Moore. We will be parked on the Lititz Pike side of the parking lot with James' truck (and maybe trailer) to collect items for the garage sale. You can write this off on you taxes too. Just write a log of what you donated and the value of it and it can be used as a charitable donation. All items left at the end of the yardsale will then go to Lebonan for a second garage sale the next weekend at Jackson's parent's house. After that if anything is left it will be donated to charity. Please let me know if you are planning to drop stuff off on the 22nd or if you want to donate to the bake sale.

One Year

At 2:43 today it will be one year since I held my little baby, since she took her last breath and left this world forever. Not a second has gone by that we haven't missed her, loved her and wished she was still with us. I know heaven is a wonderful place and I know she feels no pain I just wish we could have had more time. I miss being her mom more than anything. I miss the day in and day out activities. I miss waking up in the middle of the night to her cry and know that I would get to see her sweet face and rock her back to sleep. We are still undone.

As you all know this Sunday is the one year anniversary of Alivia's death. It's not an easy week (obviously) but it hasn't been an easy year either. There is a site called Wordle where you put in text and it makes a picture based on how many times each word appears so I put in all the tributes writen about Livi and made a picture

It's a little blurry in this copy but the real one looks great. But I love the way it looks and I'm going to print it out when I get my printer fixed.
