Happy February 29th to you! The kids will have some fun leap year activities at school today to celebrate so it should be a fun day. ☺
I mentioned the other day that I'd do a giveaway this week so here goes: leave me a comment telling me about your favorite color scheme and I will put together a scrappy kit for one random winner using those colors. If you tell a friend about it leave me another comment telling me about that and you'll get another chance in the drawing. I will choose a winner next Monday and post it here and try to get your kit put together and shipped out before the end of next week.
Now for a new layout, created for Bella Blvd:
This little girl, my oldest, is home sick with pneumonia. Yes, they were finally able to figure it out after the negative strep and flu tests she'd had before. I had to take baby Lily to a check up yesterday and took Hailey with me and our great pediatrician could tell that Hailey wasn't feeling well so she looked her over and then sent us for a chest x-ray and that confirmed the pneumonia. We've started her on antibiotics and even today she is feeling a bit better. The poor girl had watched "The Secret of Nymh" recently and when she started getting sick she said that she hoped it wasn't pneumonia because people can die from that. I was a little hesitant yesterday to tell her about the diagnosis and we had a talk about her uncle and nephew who just got over pneumonia and they are fine. I believe strongly in the power of prayer and know that a Father above is watching out for my little girl. It may take a few more days for her to be back to herself but this morning she's up instead of laying in bed, her temperature is down and she was laughing...small miracles considering how she's been feeling lately.
I recently saw the movie, "The Help" and loved that the woman would teach the little girl that she cared for to say that she was smart, kind and important. What a special thing for her to do, and I liked it so much that I added it here in the journaling.
You can see more great layouts on the Bella blog today:
Have a wonderful day and don't forget to enter the drawing by leaving a comment on THIS post before next Monday.
