On The Go...

as the title says, On The Go!!!

Seriously Mommy, FEED ME!!!

Well it has been awhile, but we have been extremely busy. I feel like I never seem to catch up with anything. And now that the holiday season is about here I am going nuts! I barely see my husband let alone see anyone else. Kinsley and I have been hanging out and working on lots of good stuff. She is now CRAWLING!!! First time was Saturday night, she wanted Joellen's toys so bad (our little neighbor). The girl did what she had to to get that My Little Pony:) I can't believe it, she is getting to be such a big girl! Her 2 bottom teeth are almost all the way in, I think she is cutting more though. Tonight she was really fussy and she's ran a fever all day. Guess I will know in a few days, this is what happened before the bottom 2 cut.

I love her cheesy smile!!!

She will hate me for this someday, but she is so stinkin cute!

Gifts of Gabi's Grace Foundation and Miracles Happen Ministries are back at it again. With last years huge success we want ot spread a little holiday cheer to some very special kids. Childrens Mercy PICU is very special to our families, for very obvious reasons. Unfortunately though we have not had the time this year to fundraise and have events for our organizations, so we are begging for your help again! And I know we ask a lot, but I feel like the times we ask for help it is necessary. Christmas is my favorite time of year, especially as a child and I think my most favorite part was the stocking!
Last year many of you helped brighten many kids faces as they spend their holiday in the PICU. We had an overwhelming response of those who wanted to take part in such a special event. We WANT and NEED your help again this year. We have not set a date for delivery, but we need to start getting items together. Last year we had everything from crayons, coloring books, puzzles, games, barbies, dolls, matchbox cars, jewelry, movie tickets, candy, the list goes on and on. The children range anywhere from newborn to 18 years old. We made ornaments and even little picture frames. It was such a fun event! And of course we could not leave out our guardian angels up there, the nursing staff, we took them trays of goodies to snack on.

If you would like to be involved in any way shape or form please contact me. Our web site has the wrong mailing address listed and I can't seem to get on it to change it, technical difficulties! Please email me,

Whether it is money, toys, candy, cookies...we need it all!!! I found the majority of the items I pruchased at Targets dollar spot, I have already spotted several items I'd like to pick up. I know this is a hard time of year for many people and with the economy in shambles it makes things even harder. But these children deserve a little holiday spirit and that is exactly what we plan to give them, with your help of course.

THANK YOU and remember the kids will love you for it and most importantly rememeber the whole reason we even started this was our 2 amazing little girls, ANGEL GABI and BELLA

These stockings were filled beyond belief, I can't wait to see how much the kids get this year, with your help of course!

Pirate, Punk Princess, and A Tooth!!!

Last night was fun! Gracie and her little brother, Chance, came to our house for Trick or Treating, our neighbor, Joellen, joined us as well. So we had a Pirate- Gracie, a scarey Zombie- Chance, a Punk Princess- Kinsley, Minnie Mouse- Joellen, Tigger- Daddy, and me the "Salsa Dancer. Kinsley and I made it through most of the neighborhood, but a diaper change and food was needed about half way. We headed back while the rest of the kids finished up. They brought home lots of great treats, I am sure their teeth are rotting as I type:) Speaking of teeth, Miss Kinsley first tooth is cutting through her gums I felt it for the first time last night...YEA!!! It is so hard to believe how quickly she is growing up, I am lovin every minute of it! My baby is turning into a big girl!
