I haven’t written in a very long time, and this day somehow motivated me to get back. So thank you, rare disease day for bringing me back. But boy, do I wish we had never crossed paths. The past couple of years have been an exhausting blur, filled with lots of ups and downs, and… Read More Thank You, Rare Disease Day
If you’ve read through my blog you may have seen posts on our annual Dead End Halloween party. Each year has it’s unique twist, which makes me sort of hold my breath when the next one rolls around. Well, this year did not disappoint! It was anticipated to be a muggy and wet night, but… Read More Dead Enders And…A Tornado?
7… where have the years gone?! Every birthday with any of my kids is always bittersweet. We are always so proud of how far they have come and are amazed at the little people they are turning out to be. But, my heart also hurts that time is creeping away. As that saying goes, the… Read More Celebrating 7
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

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?
