So Big... PAD #1149

When Eva raises her hands up like this we always say So Big in a sing-song voice. Now she does it on her own instead of mimicking us. We are up at Nate and Sarah’s for the night. They were thrilled to spend some time with Eva today.

We were supposed to help out with a yard sale to raise funds for the Relay for Life. Unfortunately the weather did not hold out and the yard sale has been postponed to next weekend. However we are doing a Lighthouse photo tour next weekend and can’t help out. I’ve been trying to raise donations for the Relay but I am hesitant to send out another mass e-mail because I think those have been bugged people in the past. I sent out one recently (last month) to see if I could get some help on a project where I tried to get photos of hope that I can put together into a video slide show for a family that really needs some hope right now. I got a few responses and not at all as many as I would have thought. I’m still accepting photos if anyone is interested please send them to hopephotos at benspark dot com. What I am looking for are photos of bloggers holding messages of hope for a family fighting Cancer. I am going to put them all together into a video set to music to send to the family for Father’s day. And part of why Allison and I are walking in the Relay for Life is in honor of this family’s fight. If you are so inclined I’d appreciate any donations you can give. I’ve also set up an incentive program for bloggers who donate.

On our way up to Nate and Sarah’s we stopped off for lunch at Famous Dave’s BBQ. Here is a photo of that momentous meal. This was just after Eva had spent some time at Harry and Sherrie’s and learned another thing that makes her laugh. We also stopped and picked up all four Percy Jackson and the Olympians books in hardcover. I can’t wait to read them on my trip out to California next week.

    I’ll include this in my next Frinks, hopefully you’ll get a little bit more help there. I’ll also see what I can send, it may not be much. Anything helps though.

    Eva looks so darling. I had a niece one time that would open her eyes really big and raise her eyebrows when you asked her to “shine your eyes”. It was the coolest. :)

    Chica,

    Thanks very much for adding this to the frinks. I love the frinks, such a great idea. Any little bit helps $5 or $10 no amount will be denied. I appreciate it.

    I love the shine your eyes, that is so cute. I also got a very very cute photo of Eva wearing one of her cloth stackable blocks as a hat, she’s so cute and her aunt and uncle are head over heels for her.

    The photo that you have putted over in the post is very good. The baby seems to be very cute. I wishes best of luck to him for his life and hope he grow up into a good human being.

    Um Marc…
    I suspect that you did not read the post but are just commenting to get backlinks because this is a photo of my daughter. And if you had read the 1st line of the post you’d know that. You fooled my into approving your first comment. Shame on you, but fooling me twice well shame on me.
