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.

James is recovering as well as can be expected for someone with such a bad break. The pain meds are keeping him drowse but not in pain so it's a fair trade. He has 46 staples, 11 screws and a steel plate. He seems to handling it okay. Just another hurdle to jump over. Here is a photo of the x-ray.

Please Pray

This post is not about Alivia but instead about her Dad. Today James broke his leg pretty badly during a rugby game. Tomorrow AM (Sunday) he will have surgery to have plates put in. Both bones in the left leg are broken a few inches above the ankle. The X-ray tech said it was the worst break she has seen. James will be in the hospital (Lancaster General) till Monday. Thanks for your prayers.

Light the Night

It is almost Light the Night time again. This year it is on September 18th in Harrisburgh (there are other locations but this one is the one we did last year and so we decided to go there again) It is a great night. We have raised over $1800 already!! I am so proud of our team. We are going to make a tradition of the yard sale since we were able to raise so much. If anyone wants to join us in walking please visit lightthenight.org and sign up. Our team is the Lovely Ladybugs. If you do join our team please raise $100 to contribute to the team total. It is so easy to raise that money. Just ask each of you friends for 5 dollars or have a bake sale or yard sale. Every dollar gets us one step closer to finding a cure so other kids don't suffer like Alivia did.
Here are a few shots from last years event.
