Please send this message to everyone you know that has kids who are going to be going out for Halloween! With Halloween fast approaching comes a warning to parents and kids regarding Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold milk chocolate coins imported from China . The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning the public not to eat, distribute or sell the candy. It is sold across Canada by Costco and may also have been sold in bulk packages or as individual pieces at various dollar and bulk stores. The chocolate contains melamine which is the same chemical responsible for killing several babies in China , and sickening thousands more. http://www.snopes.com/food/warnings/coins.asp
Sherwood Brands' Pirate's Gold Premium Milk Chocolate Coins

I got this e-mail 3 times today within a half hour. SO with that said I thought that it would be a good idea to maybe put a post out about it too.

Checking Out

So after today I dont know when the next time I will be on here. I am hoping that it is no later then Monday or Tuesday, But we will see. So for now have a good and safe fun weekend and the next time I write to you all I will be in good ol' Virginia Beach VA!!!!! I can not wait to see what this road trip brings. So far it has brought a VERY late start on the packing of the truck, a bed time of 2AM this morning and a rise of 7AM, and a check out process that is taking a little longer then to be expected. So needless to say we are going to get out of here today I just dont know what time that will be. Talk to you all on the other side of the road!!

Pulling Chalks

So after thinking and being told that we will not be leaving till Oct 24th we where just informed this afternoon that we will now be leaving ON FRIDAY!! LOTS to do still but I am really just looking forward to getting to Virginia finally and starting things up there! So if I am not on here for awhile that is because I will be on the road and unpacking and doing all the good stuff that comes with moving!!!


Today I remember my baby Joey. I miss him, love him, and want to hold him more then ever especially today. All I have to hold onto are the memories that I have of holding him in my belly. Today I remember and pray for all the family and friends that have lost their babies that are now in the arms of Jesus. That is the BEST place that anyone one especially a baby could be.
Today I am praying for:
My mom
If I have forgotten you PLEASE let me know so I can pray for you today too.

Well the weekend is done and over with. Rob is winged, family has all gotten home safe and we are now ready to hit the road. The only thing left to do is for Rob to check out of his command and we can hit the road. We are hoping to be gone around Wednesday or Thursday time frame I think. Here are some pics of the weekend.

Almost there!

My house is almost ALL packed up!!! We hit it ALL day yesterday and have the house pretty much done and it all loaded up in the garage onto how we want it stacked in the truck. Now all we have to do is hear the words of where we are going and when we have to be there by and we are out of here. I cant be live that this very well might be our last week in this house. The only things that are left really are the things that we still need and use. I am looking around and it is VERY sad that the things we use and need everyday don't even take up ONE of my bedrooms (and we don't have the biggest sized rooms). It is sad to say that we are going to have to rent a 26 FOOT TRUCK just to get ALL of this stuff from one house to the next. I CANT BELIEVE THAT.
I feel like we just moved into this house. I also think back to it now as to WOW it has now been over a year since I have been back home. I DON'T LIKE THAT (and I m sure Hollie doesn't either). June of 2007 I was leaving IL to come home to a home that I literally didn't know where it was. The only thing I had was the GPS telling me where my house was. And now we are packed up and ready to leave it. Part of me says I CANT WAIT to get out of this town but I have come close to a lot of people down here that I am going to miss them. But hopefully we will be going back to VA and I will be able to be reunited with people that I left up there when we left and be able to reconnect with them!! I am just very much looking forward to seeing where we are going to next!!

I had a girl make this for me that I meat through my friend Mindy (the girl who lost baby Shea). She is making them for anyone who has lost a baby. It is for Oct 15 Infant loss rembrance day. Thank you very much Jessica for making this for me.

Still here.....

With boxes up to my eyeballs. I cant believe how much packing I have gotten done in just today. I CANT WAIT to get out of here. It is pretty funny hearing Robbie tell people that we are leaving this house but we are going to load everything up into a BIG moving truck and hit the road. HAHAA. He really is being a good sport about all of this too. I have packed almost ALL of his toys and at first wasn't to happy about it but once I explained where his new toys where going he was ok with it all!! I will have to take some pics of my garage for you all because it is all lined up as to how we are going to be packing our truck!! Well gonna go pack some more boxes!!! YPEE ONLY 7 MORE DAYS!!! Have I said I CANT WAIT YET?? Now watch us get sent to Japan:P

A little vist to Joey.

Robbie trying to share his Mickey D's toy with Joey. He wanted to leave it there for him to "play with" But that is not allowed where he is buried at.

Robbie was telling his Aunt Beck "SHHHH my lil brother is sleeping we have to be quiet". That was heart braking

I don't know what Robbie was saying but he was just talking away to Joey.

After Robbie gave Joey a hug. He had asked me "mommy can I give my lil brother a hug"? I said "Sure sweetie you can hug him when ever you want to". He looked at me looked at Joey's headstone looked back at me and said "How can I hug him mommy he doesn't have any arms to hug me back"? Let me tell you right there that is when I lost it all. So I told him how bout this you can give Joey a hug on his head stone and I will give you a hug from Joey. He said "ummm... ok mommy but I get to hug him first". So I made sure that when I gave him a hug it was one of the biggest hugs I have EVER given him.
It was a hard day but it was a day that I will never forget. This was the day where Robbie finally put it all together I think about his little brother. We talk about Joey with Robbie and we have shown him the pics that we have of Joey but I think it finally ALL clicked once he saw "where Joey is at". I got to sit down and really explain it ALL to him about how Joey got really sick in mommy's tummy and he is up in heaven now with Jesus. So I think in seeing the head stone something clicked because he is now always asking about Joey.
