Kendra has a Christmas Warrior! After a few weeks of no one committing to be her Christmas Warrior, Jayson & I started talking & praying about if it was something God wanted for us to do as a family. By that night, someone else had already committed. She has some new pictures and she is SOO cute, I love her so much!
It was my goal to raise $100 for Enoch by October 31. On October 4, I had a moment of panic when I realized it was already October and that I had to raise it by the end of THIS month. I was collecting pop bottles, mostly from family & friends but hadn't made it out door to door yet. I decided to do it that night, but as soon as I got to my parents to get the wagon and had the girls ready, it was raining. Sometime inbetween my moment of panic that morning & later that night, Enoch went from $28 to $111!!! Some was from pop bottles generously donated but I have no idea who else helped, I am so thankful to everyone that donated money and/or pop bottles!!! THANK YOU!!!
Nico's family has an iPad giveaway going on for the month of October!
You can visit Kara's blog here to get all the details! You will get an entry into the giveaway for every $5 donated! You can donate to their ChipIn or to their Family Sponsorship Page (tax deductible) on Reece's Rainbow. The funds to their ChipIn will help them NOW. Their family sponsorship funds will help them for travel expenses later. If you donate to their ChipIn though, you will get double entries! :) Nico is in a very expensive region & they have a lot of money to raise, so I'd love it if you'd at least check the giveaway out or consider sharing it!
Zannen is being adopted by the Rutherford's, who are from West Michigan!! I'm so excited for a local family to be adopting from Reece's Rainbow!! This Saturday they are walking in a Step Up for Down Syndrome walk. They have decorated a wagon with TONS of pictures of waiting children to help raise awareness. They are also working hard to raise funds to bring Zannen home. If you would like to make a pledge to help support their walk, you can do so here on their Family Sponsorship Page!! Prayers & donations would be awesome to help encourage this family & show them support!!
I have been on a gluten free diet for a couple months. For whatever reason, this time it hasn't been a huge struggle for me to be on it. I try to eat naturally gluten free b/c gluten free products are EXPENSIVE & often taste AWFUL!! WELL, I want to tell you, we found the most AMAZING pizza crust! Even Jayson loves it (which is very rare, mind you!!) & it's only $3.50ish. So incase you or someone you know is on a gluten free diet and looking for a good gluten free pizza, try this one!!! :)
That's about all I have for tonight, so now I'll just leave you with a couple pictures of my adorable, growing girls!!
