Today US101 held their annual St. Jude Radiothon...Now anyone who knows me well knows that I am not a crier--I can sit through funerals and not cry (not because I'm not sad, but I just don't tear up easily). However, the St. Jude stories get me every year! And I was in the car traveling with work all day long, and I kept trying to change the channel, but I just couldn't. So...basically, I was teary all day. I never really paid much attention to St. Jude until I became a mother. Thankfully, Daniel and I have been blessed with a healthy baby. But if Owen ever needed the kind of help that St. Jude offers to families whose little ones have cancer, I certainly would rest easier knowing that there is a place like that there to help. From what I understand, St. Jude provides treatment for children free of charge, and even provides a place for families to stay while their children are being treated. Today I took Owen to donate some money, and even though he is too little to really understand, I explained to him that it's important to help others when we can. We didn't donate much because right now, we don't have much, but I challenge anyone who has children (healthy or not) to give if you can.
*Oh, and the photos below don't really have anything to do with St. Jude, but they are proof that Owen is surely healthy. :)

As I have said many times before, our family is blessed to have friends who will tolerate our screaming, whiny two-year old weekend after weekend...(Yes, folks--I know it's hard to believe but that precious Owen does scream and whine from time to time). Owen loves Christy and Burt so much. Here are some recent, funny photos from our weekends together....there is also a great one of Owen and his Granna, which my mom will be so angry at me for posting...oh well....I like it.
