november2008

Thank you to so many of you who stopped by to donate to Rachel's Journey home or at least to read their story and offer some positive thoughts and prayers.  They still need some more donations, so if you haven't stopped by and want a chance to help bring a daughter and sister home to her forever family, go see them. You could win a FABULOUS camera!



Help Bring Rachel Home!


Also, my friend, Jennifer is walking 60 miles in 3 days this week to raise money for breast cancer.  I think that is such a great feat.  She raised all of the money she hoped to raise but she sure could use some prayers and good thoughts.  So , stop by and leave her an encouraging word.  I think the walk starts tomorrow, so go wish her the very best!

Y'all are so nice that I have decided to give away two more subscriptions to Traditional Home. I need to do this quickly as the offer they sent me (I have been subscribing for 13 years) is about to expire. I am sending one to Jennifer as a congratulations for "walking the walk" to help breast cancer and I'll draw a winner from the comments section for the other. Just leave a comment here to be entered.  If you want two chances, go leave Jennifer or Rachel's Mom some encouraging words as they both are about to embark on their journeys.  Let me know you left them some love and you'll be entered twice:) I will pick the winner tomorrow morning (around 7:00 a.m).  Good Luck!


And a very Happy Birthday to sweet Hannah! We love you!

  4. Can't believe with all you have going on your thinking of all of us! Hope the unpacking is coming along and your beginning to feel more settled. Also, just wondering what you decided to do with your built-ins. Paint or don't paint. Hopefully I didn't miss your post, if I did please forgive me. The mind is a little scattered lately :-)

  7. Hello my friend.... I am praying the Lord brings Rachel home...
    I wanted to tell you that Hannah got a little doll today for her Birthday that is just like Kate's FiFi. She named her other doll Baby that she got today from Nicholas and wanted to call this one Baby too. WEll, she already has 3 dolls named Mei Mei so I was trying to get her to branch out a little. lol So I told her that Kate named her doll like this FiFi. She said, "FiFi?" I told her yes.... then I said.... what about TuTu? She Said, "TUTUT?????" like I was crazy! Then proceeded to tell me her baby is named KATE! So, please tell Kate that she has a little neice named after her. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    love you,
    Daleea

  12. Kim, so nice of you to link to your friend who is walking! I walked the Atlanta 3Day just over a week ago! Whew! I blogged about it all three days and dropped by Jen's blog as well to leave an encouraging word. It is a hard 3 days but so worth it! Like I told her...we're saving boobies everywhere!

  18. Hello Kim! I have been blog stalking you for some time now! I love reading your blog as we are about to embark on the journey of adoption (from China). We have 3 boys now and believe that God has two daughters for us already picked out. The house addition plans are all drawn up, the bills are being paid off, and my excitement continues to build. We wanted to make sure we had all of our ducks in a row before we started the ball rolling. Keep up the enjoyable blog! Thanks also for the giveaway!

    Blessings,
    Amy

  35. Kim, Thanks for teaching me how to be a better "giver" (Rachels story). I usually think about giving and then move on. But after reading your posts for a long time now...I have watched and learned from your generosity.
    I hope you know even though you may not know me your blog has taught me to be more like you. I thank you for that. Maureen

  37. What a wonderful and heart felt giveaway.

    I read Rachels story ~ what a lucky little girl! I've left my comment and donation to her loving family ~ best wishes to them all!

    It's so nice to know that there are people out there that really care for and about others, and not just themselves!

  41. I tried your tortilla soup recipe last night, and it was delicious! Definitely the best we've ever had (and you know every Tex-Mex restaurant serves it). Thanks so much! I even ordered the Stop and Smell the Rosemary cookbook and can't wait to try out the new recipes. Glad your starting to get settled in your new place. Good luck with the unpacking!

  42. Kim, this is such a sweet idea! I will stop by and leave a comment for your friend. A blog friend of mine just did the 60 mile walk for breast cancer awareness & research and I was just so inspired!!!

    I love the pictures of the girls, too. :)
