I have blogged a lot about Andrew and his severe food allergies that he suffers from. It is tough for a little guy like him. Recently he was also diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. A disease where the allergen's are attacking his esophagus causing permanent damage.

We have been long term supported of FAAN, ever since Andrew had his first Anaphylaxis reaction. Andrew really wanted to participate in their walk for a cure and find some other children who suffer like him.

Andrew raised over $2,000 for a cure and brought out his entire family to support him in this walk. For more information and to find a walk near you, please visit

He was really nervous before we started the walk. He got a little upset when he found out the cure was not at the end of the walk. :(
Everyone had "team Andrew" shirts on!

Look at all the people who came out to support this great cause!

Team Andrew! Fighting for a cure!

Super Cute Picture

I was emailed this cute picture from my Father-in-law this afternoon. It's a picture where someone made a high chair out of a watermelon. I could not help but share it with you all! Enjoy!

Andrew's Video to his Teacher

As all my reader know, Andrew loves to make videos! He loves his 2nd grade teacher so much this year because she has been teaching him so many fun new things. He made this super cute video, although he told me not to show anyone....because if his school found out they would send him to the principle's office. :)

It's cute! Enjoy!

Holiday Mail for Heroes is back!

In this season of hope and giving the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes, Inc. have joined forces to invite Americans to “send a touch of home” to United States service members and veterans across the country and abroad. In its third year, the Holiday Mail for Heroes program is an opportunity to share joy and thanks with our service members throughout the holiday season by way of a greeting card.

Today over 1.4 million men and women serve in the U.S. armed forces and over 24 million veterans have served in the past. The holiday season is the perfect time to honor and extend a warm holiday greeting to those who’ve served and continue to do so.

How Holiday Mail works

They have established an extensive process to ensure all cards sent to our service members are safe and arrive in time for the holidays. Holiday cards will be collected through a unique P.O. Box address from Monday, November 2 through Monday, December 7*.

First, cards from across the nation must be sent to this address:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Every card received will be screened for hazardous materials by Pitney Bowes and distributed to participating Red Cross chapters nationwide. Once the cards arrive at the Red Cross chapters, they are sorted and reviewed by volunteers who then distribute them to service members, their families and veterans in communities across the country.

Please don’t forget to follow these guidelines while preparing your holiday greetings!


Sign all cards
Entitle cards “Dear Service Member, Family or Veteran”
Limit cards to 15 per person or 50 for school class or business group
Bundle groups of cards in single, large envelopes

Send letters
Include personal information such as home or email addresses
Use glitter – excessive amounts can aggravate health issues of wounded recipients
Include inserts of any kind as they must be removed in the screening process

Please make sure and spread the word about this wonderful program with your friends, families, teachers, blogs and Twitter!!

(I recently got this information from my father. Whether it is true, I cannot guarantee..but I know that I am willing to do anything that might help keep us healthy!)

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that
visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of
the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was
very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was
different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in
the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor
couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and placed it
under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the
flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the virus, therefore, keeping
the family healthy.

Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several
years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many
of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around
in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work..
(And no, she is not in the onion business.)

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around
your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under
your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We did it
last year and we never got the flu.

If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better.
If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case..

Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on
