Dylon's Yard Sale

Last May we found out that my 3 year-old cousin, Dylon, has three congenital heart defects. He will be having open-heart surgery this summer in Houston, Texas. We know that he will be there for at least 3 weeks, maybe longer. His parents Matt and Shelli will of course be with him, which means Matt will not be able to work for that long. Shelli has planned a yard sale to raise money for this trip. You can read more about it on her blog.

She's had a great response from our community so far and some great items have been donated. Also, she and Dylon should be on the radio and television here in Andalusia this week.

Please keep Dylon, his parents, and his doctors in your prayers!!!

My Birthday Boy

Don't be sad because you're another year older!*

That's much better!

I wish we were here today....away from all of our stressful decisions**, my never ending research papers, and your eluding turkey.

*He's really frowning because we were leaving our honeymoon, not because he's 32 today!
**We're having a hard time commiting to faucets.

Where Da Gold At?

I hope everyone remembers to wear green today! In honor of St. Patrick's Day I insist that everyone watch this video. If you've already seen it, then it's worth watching again. This is a real news story from Mobile, AL!

That always makes me laugh till I cry. I love the artist's sketch of the leprachaun.

I have tons of news to share, but little time to post. I did get a start on the house blog thanks to Aunt Christy.

Happy Birthday to Shelli today. She has a blog now so that she can keep everyone updated on Dylon. Add her to your friends list and leave her a birthday comment!
