It's a nice little Saturday morning... I'm busy being crafty, making some birthday cards since I realized that I was out. There's a 'The Hills' marathon on MTV, so I'm engrossed in that guilty pleasure. The weather is beautiful - mid 60s. (Too bad I have no desire to go anywhere.) Hey, at least I'm dressed! Bailey keeps eyeballing me, waiting for a sign that we're outta here. Soon, little girl...
Last night I finished editing some home video of the kids' Spring concerts. Here's a clip of Shelby playing her bass guitar with the Jazz Band:

Thinking about the reason behind the Memorial Day holiday...
This weekend we pause to remember. To honor and thank those who paid the ultimate price so that we can have our picnics and parades and parties. To recognize the sacrifice of the families whose loved ones gave their lives in order that our freedoms could be preserved. To consider the ongoing challenges of those who voluntarily put themselves in harm’s way to protect our country, our values and our way of life.
Check out Cards for Heroes, a non-profit organization whose mission is to "support our nation's armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." I'll be working on a challenge with my card group in the upcoming weeks to support this organization. Let me know if you'd like to help...
