Take The Pledge

Contribute 2009
Contribute 2009
Our goal is to inspire 100,000 people to spend an extra $50 at locally owned small businesses on or after October 12, 2009. That’s a $5 million economic infusion that can create a ripple effect in communities across the nation.

Rally to help small businesses.
Small businesses are at risk. By spending just $50 at a local small business and encouraging others to do the same, we can bring hope and collectively contribute to lives and livelihoods in our local communities.

Spread the word. Show support.
Share your plans on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word. Invite a reporter to your shopping day to create more publicity for the store. Be creative. Show your support for small businesses by buying a Contribute 2009 t-shirt for $9 (shipping included) and Scentsy will send you a $10 Scentsy gift certificate.

Take the Contribute 2009 pledge and offer big help to small businesses in your community.

Wish I was better at this...

I really do wish that I was better at keeping this updated. Noah is now fully potty trained! YEAH!!! He occasionally still will have a #2 accident, but that is a once a week occurrence. Nicklaus is becoming such a big boy. 3 weeks ago (so just before he turned 5 months) he weighed 19 pounds and was 26 1/2 inches long. And he is starting to get up on his knees and toes, on his way to learning to crawl! That is such a scary thought to think that soon I'm going to have two boys running around my house!
Noah loves his brother so much. Whenever Noah hears Nick fussing/crying; he runs up to him and says it's okay brother, don't be scared. Don't cry. It's really cute. And then he always wants to be the one to hold him while he's crying to. He loves to sit on the couch and give him kisses and hugs.

Noah also has his jealous side too. When I'm playing with Nicklaus giving him kisses or tickling his belly Noah wants his belly tickled too, or Noah has to give me kisses, not Nick. Or if I need Noah to finish eating his dinner I just have to tell him that Nicklaus is going to eat it if he doesn't.
