There is something bittersweet about being part of a day like today. I don’t think anyone ever wishes to be part of this community. If you are part of it, either you or someone you love is facing some undesirable circumstances. However, being a part of this day means that you have surrounded yourself with… Read More Rare Disease Day 2018
Last week we had the opportunity to head down to Atlanta, GA…with just Logan! A clinic specifically for Pitt Hopkins was organized by a fellow PTHS mom, and founder of the Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation. It was fantastic. We had a little over a month to start planning…and stressing. We needed to bring all medical… Read More Logan Takes Us To Atlanta!
Baths. They’ve been my thing since as long as I can remember. I can go into detail here, but I’ll just get right to it. These days, with 3 crazy kids who don’t like to go to bed at a decent hour, finding time for my own spa experience is a challenge. Thankfully I have… Read More Clean Calendula Bath Bombs
I’ve always loved you, Halloween, and this year you did not disappoint! The weather was perfect, the kids were happy, the costumes fit (well, maybe not for Wes) and I was again reminded how much I love our neighborhood. Every year we co-host the “Dead End” Halloween party. We have it at our house, and… Read More The Dead Enders
I always try to look at the positive aspects of every situation, especially with Logan. Finding the good in things, even if it is just the tiniest speck, often helps get me through this hand we were dealt. And, it makes me a better mom and advocate for all of my kids. Well, it took… Read More When Answers Can’t Be Told
October 7, 2017 will go down as one of the best days ever for our family. And, quite certainly for Logan. If you haven’t heard (we’ve only been talking about it on social media for a week!), Logan was chosen by UNC Children’s Hospital to do the coin toss at the University of North Carolina’s… Read More Logan Becomes a Tar Heel!
This weekend Logan will be doing the coin toss at the UNC vs Notre Dame football game! I cannot tell you how excited we are about this! We have strong ties with UNC, so it is extra special for us. UNC Children’s Hospital contacted us while we were at the beach for Logan’s 5th Birthday,… Read More Tar Heels Tackle PTHS!
I look at this sweet face today, feeling like I blinked and five years had gone by. I can still see the sweet little expressions she made when she was a baby, and she still seems to somehow melt into my lap the same way. Just with longer legs. Every year we take Logan to… Read More And Like That, She is 5…And What A Difference A Year Makes!
Coming up with a title for this post has kept me from writing this for a very long time now, so I’m just sticking with it. Now, Logan is far from a princess. She is more of a tom boy in lilac glasses and pigtails, who prefers to wrestle around with her brothers than play… Read More The Princess and the Pea?
Well, it was a HUGE success!!! Over $14,000 was raised between donations, ticket sales and silent auction items. How incredible is that?! Thank you is not enough to all who contributed and danced the night away with us, and we (our family and our Pitt Hopkins family) will be forever grateful to Caroline for choosing… Read More How Successful Was The Pitt Hoppin’ Dance-a-Thon?
