Great Cause...Pass it along!

I don't know this family and I have nothing to gain by you buying from this auction but I stumbled on it while searching for something on EBAY and could not keep it quiet.

On the evening of December 30, 2007, a tragedy hit the Griffin and Burkman families. This young family was headed home for the new year when a 24 year old drunk driver entered the highway off-ramp in the wrong direction. After driving almost five miles on the wrong side of the road, the drunk driver collided with the Griffin's van. The collision took five lives from a blended family of nine. The angels that received their wings that night were: Bethany Griffin - 36 (mother) and four of her and her husband Danny's beloved children: Haley Burkman - 10, Jordan Griffin - 10, Lacie Burkman - 7, Vadie Griffin - 8 weeks old. Not only will Danny (father and stepfather of these children) have to live the rest of his life without his wife and children but also in mourning are Jodie, mother of Jordan and Jack, father of Haley and Lacie. In addition to their parents, three children (Sydney, Brett, and Beau) survive their four sisters.

I just could not imagine having to deal with something this heart wrenching and I felt like I needed to share the story and point people towards the auction so that they can raise as much money as possible to help this family.

The auction is for a full set of instructions to learn how to make the most adorable clippies I have ever seen.

If you are not interested in bidding or donating that is fine but I would consider it a personal favor if you could pass the information on via your blog or email so more people can learn about this senseless tragedy and perhaps help out. The auction ends on 1/20/08 so the faster we can get the word out the better. Thank you in advance for your time and help with this great cause.

Remember to kiss your loved ones because things can change in the blink of an eye.


Here we go again...

It is January and the time has come to start with sports again. I have Bailey signed up for Winter Soccer and it starts in just 2 short weeks. I love that she is an active child and that she really enjoys playing sports. The downside is that I HATE THE COLD!!! Still, she does look adorable in her soccer uniform so I guess I will just dress very warmly and enjoy it while I can. She is only going to be this young once so I am going to make the most out of every moment I get to share with her!

Happy New Year to all of you and remember to count your blessings and take a deep breath because it is only the beginning!
