Love You Mum {and Ethan's Home Run Derby}


Happy Monday my friends. I'm happy to be home after a week away for a business trip and ending the week with a ton of fun at Pat's cousin's wedding.  Before I left, I made a card for my mum who stayed with our boys over the weekend.  I love that the Verve stamps have both mum and nana stamps which are perfect for her.  This sentiment says it all.  This card is being entered in the Viva La Verve Sketch.

I also wanted to share what we were up to several weeks ago.  For those of you have been been on my blog for a while, you know that a teenager in our community was struck by lightning in June 2013.  Last year, our family helped with a fundraiser to benefit Ethan for his long term care.  Last year, Ethan was in the hospital and unable to attend.  We had the second annual Ethan Kadish Home Run Derby.  It was a beautiful day and we were so thankful Ethan was able to attend.  Our home family along with so many fabulous members of our community were there to support Ethan.
