Happy 8th Birthday Sissy!

Today is the day my sissy Amalie celebrates her 8th birthday! She's very good to me, loving and caring. She gets me up out of my bed in the mornings on weekends so Mummy can sleep in a little bit, makes me my bottle and everything! If I'm crying she's the first to come running and ask me what's wrong and give hugs. I'm lucky to have her as my sissy!

Missing Mom and Dad

Kitty here, taking over Nathanael's blog space...just filled with melancholy and woe, missing my parents so much this time of year. The irony of it, you have great parents, excellant upbringing, sweet sweet memories and yet SO much pain after they go. I relished getting together with the whole family on Thanksgiving, walking in the door, smelling the fresh hommemade rolls baking, turky on the stove getting ready to carve. Mom cooked on an old Home Comfort wood stove. So, it was warm, smelled of wood fire and good food. Most of all, we all caught up on what's going on with each other. I'm glad we had that but missing it sorely. It's time for ME to be the Mom, time for ME to create the memories. *sigh* Time for my siblings to do the same. I have so much love for them. I am truly truly blessed. May God bless any readers I might get on this holiday whether you're here or another continent away. Bless you. Kitty
..and I'd attach photos if my NAS drive power supply didn't fry in a recent power's wehre all the photos etc are :-( ugh..some days modern technology gets the best of ya.

Brother..can you spare a dime?

or two or three? A dear friend of ours, Amy, who we met on a Trisomy 21 online forum, is very handy with her crafty beading skills and I'm now asking you to put her to work. As the Mom of a lovely child with T21 (aka Down Syndrome) I applaud those people who can decide to use their talents to advocate for those who may not necessarily be able to speak for themselves. Amy makes these lovely Down Syndrome Awareness Bracelets and is now taking orders.

Amy now needs us to advocate for family resiliency in crisis. Amy's husband just lost his job without severance pay. I didn't know they could do that in this day and age but apparently they can. I think the family would appreciate your help during this holiday season and would love to make a bracelet for you or for you to give as a gift. Thank you for your consideration and for reading my blog :)

Visit Amy and her family at The Flege Farm (see link over on the right) or email Amy:
Email Amy for more information!

Belated Halloween Piccies!

On Halloween night he was Tigger!

I defy you to find a cuter "Tigger":

Just you try...:

Here we are in a baseball top for school. They don't allow costumes at school (they've taken ALL the fun out of school...grrrrrrrRRrrrrRRRrrrr) so here he is in baseball attire to make his dear 1-on-1 teacher Jeannine a happy camper!!
