they tricked me....

Last night I went to the crop......little did I know that they had a plan...JJ instead of charging a crop fee....had everyone donate to me and the girls....and there was even a little kid...who emptied his piggy bank....to give to us...(okay deep breaths....deep breaths.) I don't know how I will ever thank everyone....for all they've done....whether the donations...or just dropping a card in the mail....or a quick email to let me know that you're thinking and praying for us.....but I will thank each and everyone of you.....just might take me...a little time....
besides the donations......everybody cooked an awesome meal...we had smoked turkey...and all the fixin's.......I think all the scrappy chic peeps...were surprised to see all home cooked....food!! everything was delicious.....it was just a sweet thing....to do...but that's JJ.......I have the best friends ever........and I know Ed loved JJ too......if I would even think of missin' one of JJ's crops....he would tell me....you better not miss a crop....JJ is a true friend.....she is always there for you....and he was right........
Mom is coming out tonight......and I am so glad ....needing a mom fix....right now.....!!!!!!!!!!

yesterday I found myself reading all my old blog posts......it's weird to look back a month or 2 ago.....and just look at our pics.....and realize that we had no idea how our lifes were about to change.....I don't even recognize myself.......she's a different person.....
