Awareness kit

I can't believe October is almost here. My next kit is to pay tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness month and to those people who cancer affects - all those who have had it, all those who currently have it, and to those who are loved ones to cancer victims. It seems that cancer affects each person somehow. My grandmother, two aunts and cousin are all survivors of cancer. My husband's aunt passed away from cancer a few years ago. Cancer consumes - physically, emotionally, spiritually - on all levels. But I also know that because of cancer, many people have grown closer to loved ones, many people have tried to make their lives more healthy, many have survived. To anyone out there who is having to deal with this terrible disease, my heart goes out to you. I pray for you. This kit is to remind us all to be aware. You are all an inspiration!

Energy kit

It has been so great to get life back to normal since our baby's surgery. She has been seizure free for almost 4 weeks now. YEAH!

After our big roller coaster event I have been able to just sit and relax at home and just be with our kids. One thing I have noticed is that they are full of life and energy. It's fun to watch our 7 year old daughter do tricks on the trampoline. I love to watch our 5 year old daughter put on her ballet skirt and dance around the house. And our 2 year old son has energy CONSTANTLY. I could just sit and watch him all day and never get bored.

And finally, it is a MIRACLE to watch our 6 month-old Claire have energy. Her doctor told us that every time someone has one seizure, it takes their brain 24 hours to fully recover. We were seeing at least 3 a day which explains why she was so tired all the time. Now that she has been seizure free, she is full of ENERGY!!!This kit is a dedication to my children. As I was thinking about which colors I wanted to use, I decided to just throw together all of their favorite colors and try to make it work. (I know Claire's too young to have a favorite color, but her room is pink and brown so I threw those colors in there a little).

I hope you enjoy this kit!
