help find George!

A good example of what a mother will do for their child...

Monday during my run, Audrey's absolute favorite stuffed animal monkey, George, who was also my husband's favorite when he was a baby, must of fell out of the stroller. When we got back (I believe within minutes of dropping him), I immediately saw he was missing and jumped in the car. George was no where to be found. 

After driving around my jogging loop twice and talking to people, I came home and made Lost George signs. I went back out with the stroller, bad blisters and all, and started posting signs. 
So for this week I have been jogging/walking my path over and over, re-hanging signs and just praying George will come back. 

Audrey went everywhere with George since she was tiny. She is upset and I think I am even more upset. It is so sad! Someone must have picked him up and we just hope they will let him come home where he belongs. 

I may be going a little overboard, but George went so far back in the family and is really special. He has to be in this small town somewhere! 

Please help spread the word: Help Find George


weekend re-cap

We headed up north for my girlfriend of twenty-years' wedding and some great family time. 

Every time we head up, we try and see as many family members and friends as we possibly can which always makes for an exhausting weekend. 

We got to visit my great grandmother who is 97 and just a rock star. It is always such a wonderful feeling that she has gotten to watch Audrey grow up - her great, great granddaughter. 

Along with that visit, we went to see Chris' grandpa and grandma who are also in there mid-nineties. Grandma Arnold has dementia, but is physically pretty well. We named Audrey after her and every time we visit, she gets the surprise all over again when we tell her that our baby is also named, Audrey. Makes for some big smiles and feel good moments. 

Saturday evening we celebrated the wedding of my oldest friend, Jill. What a beautiful ceremony and reception that was also such a great group of close family and friends - including Jill's and my fourth-grade teacher whom we've remained close with. 

Audrey hammed it up as usual. During the ceremony she spotted another little girl relatively the same age. As soon as the other girl noticed her, neither parent could stop them. They slowly walked up to each other, looked each other up and down, the one girl touched Audrey's dress followed by Audrey touching the other girls' shoes and then they walked off. Chris and I were trying hard not to bust out laughing. 

ABC got to spend time with my grandparents as well. Audrey is so blessed to have all this loving family around her. 

On a side note, I fit into my high school winter formal dress for Jill's wedding. Felt like I was 16 again, just with a baby in tow.
