Lily is turning 10 on July 27th!
She is very special to her family and has given us so much!
So we are celebrating with Lily's Birthday Bash!
We have put together a wonderful raffle and the proceeds will go to two of Lily's friends, you might have guessed Jaxson and Parker!
Along with that we are randomly giving away 10 items until July 27th!
So far we have given away a swimming pool & towel, a volleyball, a muscle shirt & water bottle, a Beatles CD, and now Suki Jewelry!
What's next... you'll just have to come back and visit!

Okay, a little about mom. I was going to be an airline stewardess! I was accepted to Western Airlines school way back when. I fell in love instead.
Jeff and I have been married almost 25 years. Jeff brought his daughter Brittany along into the marriage. I have to admit I was a terrible stepmother! But, both Brittany and I hung in there and I love her like my own, because she is (you'll get too read about her in a few days)! Then came the boys, three boys in six years. I rested for about 8 years, then the search for my other daughter began! You can read the story of how Lily came to be here.
I don't know if Lily made me see how important family is or if was time passing, getting older, losing loved ones and just plain old life. I do know that I wouldn't be blogging if I didn't have Lily in my life. I wouldn't have met so many wonderful individuals that have Down syndrome and their families if Lily wasn't in my life. I would like to think I would be just as charitable and volunteer oriented even if I didn't have Lily, but who knows. I do know this beautiful little girl has made me better and for that I am grateful.
For that I want to give back... And this is how we're (Lily and I) going to do that. We are in the process of setting up Lily's Life is Great website, where she will be selling her brand of items, tee-shirts, bags, and other things. 21% (you get the Trisomy 21) of the profit will go to an individual or organization of our choice. That choice will change monthly; one month it might go to help feed children in Africa, to the local pet shelter, or to individuals just like Jaxson and Parker who are near and dear to our hearts. We hope word will get out about this and that we can help.
NOW for the month of August Suki Jewelry has agreed to give 20% of their profit to Lily's cause. Lily already has two friends that get to split that profit, along with whatever we sell from Lily's items. Of course we will keep you posted!
Happy Birthday to
Jaxson's mommy - December 13
Parker's mommy - July 15
Lily's mommy - July 16
