Monday Monday

It's kind of a slow, very cold day at our house today. I almost didn't blog because I honestly have nothing to really say but I took a few cute pictures and the rest of our week is JAM packed with busyness so I thought I would just post anyway and say Hi! :-) Since we were home and a little bored - I dressed Harper up in a fluffy outfit a sweet little girl passed down to us and tried to get Harper to pose. It's NOT easy these days.

Oh these sweet cheeks!

I wanted to share about a few events that ya'll might want to get involved in. I'm trying to keep things like this limited on my blog because I told you at the beginning of the year I wanted to put the focus back on this being a blog for my family and I just can't possibly put every request I get on here but there are a few things I thought you might like to know about.

There is a local group who is going on a mission trip to the Ukraine. I wish I could put EVERY mission trip on here and have you help but that would end up being every post. But this one tugged at my heart because they are going to help special needs children in orphanages. Most special needs children are given up at birth there and after age four - they are moved to an institution where they are basically put in a bed to live. I know many of you probably have special needs children and your desire is the BEST for them. This just really was hard for me to hear.
This team of doctors and therapists goes to help these kids and keep them out of institutions. They are in need of supplies and support. If you are interested in helping:
go HERE and let Christie know.


One month following the 7.1 earthquake that struck Haiti, an all-star cast of musicians is gathering for “Help Haiti Live,” a two-city ticketed concert event taking place on February 27th, 2010 to benefit Compassion International’s Haiti disaster relief fund.

All money raised in response to the Haiti earthquake will be used immediately to re-equip Compassion’s local support structure and to provide for the immediate needs of Compassion-assisted children and families.

Compassion has been meeting the physical and spiritual needs of Haitians for more than forty years and will continue to serve them in this time of extreme need. Already Compassion International has supplied more than 15,000 families with clean water, food, blankets, temporary shelter, medical supplies and counseling. Donations will lay bricks, feed, educate, clothe, heal and rebuild Haiti for many months to come in Jesus’ name.

So if you live near Nashville or L.A. - you should go to the concert or you can watch live on the internet that night! Watch a great concert and support Haiti! They still need SO much help!

Have a great Monday night! Stay WARM!!!
