Blue Egg Photography Note Cards

Blue Egg Photography Note Cards, originally uploaded by BenSpark.

The other day Drew got a package from Blue Egg Photography. I was pretty curious, but I patiently waited for him to come home to see what was inside. I was thrilled to see the package contained beautiful cards of food! What could be better than pictures of food?? These are beautifully done artistic photos of food taken by Susan Lalich a chef and photographer. Her talent is truly amazing!

And apparently when Drew blogged about the cards here he was told that Chef Sue would be happy to hear how I would be putting the cards to use.

In his post, Drew explained that I have been working with an organization called ChemoAngels. ChemoAngels is a not for profit organization that provides a ray of sunshine to the lives of chemo patients by connecting them with volunteers who send cards, letters and small gifts to men, women and children who are enduring chemotherapy treatments.

I think I joined ChemoAngels about 7 years ago and still hear from former patients who have graduated from the program. It's rewarding to get a note that you made someone's day a little brighter. And I love stationary and writing, so this is the perfect volunteer project for me. And I bet my ChemoBuddies will love getting these beautiful cards for the next few weeks!

Eva's First Visit to Disney

We have been having a great time in Florida visiting with Mimi and Grandpa Dan-o. We've had lots of fun adventures. So far, my favorite was taking Eva to Disney World with Drew and Auntie Mo.

All sunblocked up and ready to hit the park

The Halloween decorations at Disney were just amazing.

Eva's first ride at Disney!

Eva fell asleep on the walk over to It's a Small World and slept right through the ride. But not to worry, we rode it again once she woke up.

Eva and Daddy in a cage!

It was a long day at the park and Eva was a trooper! I think she held up better than mommy! But it was a great day and we're so glad to have been able to take Eva to meet the mouse!

Drew has some photos up on the Benspark and Mo has some up on her Flickr site from her entire weekend with Eva. Her commentary is worth the read!

My First Socks!

I recently learned how to knit socks. Everyone in my knitting class was right, they're addicting! Right after I finished my socks I found a pattern to make matching socks for Eva. Now I'm working on my second pair of socks for me (with a matching pair for Eva to follow, of course!). I fear that I will spend a small fortune on sock yarn in the near future! It really is an addicting hobby. And the socks are so small and easy to take everwhere!

For your viewing pleasure, Eva and Mommy's blue socks!

New Pics

Miss Eva has been very photogenic lately. Okay, she's always photogenic and mommy has just taken a bunch of photos recently. She's been a lot of fun the last week or two. She's pulling up and starting to cruise along furniture and the toofer count is up to 8! Wasn't she born just a few weeks ago? She's growing up way too fast!

And for your viewing pleasure:
Eva sporting her teddy bear raincoat!

So sweet
Eva prefers not to wear the bows, she thinks they should be tossed about the floor. Mommy thinks the bows are cute.

Maraca Mama
Maraca Mama - Eva loves the maracas that her friend H sent her!

Baby blues
Baby Blues - Those eyes just kill me!

Superstar - Eva loves to play with mommy's sunglasses.

Smiley - Eva loves to smile.

Big Girl
Big Girl - Eva likes to try to stand when she's not near any furniture. So far it hasn't gotten any further than this. I'm really grateful that she's a dainty girl and hates to fall over, so she's very careful to sit. :-)

Eva and I went to Maine a couple of weeks ago to see my best friend, Elise, and her family at her family's vacation house. It was great fun to see them and Eva enjoyed playing with Elise's little boy, H. We were in Maine for one night, then we headed back home, stopping to see Uncle Nate and Auntie Sarah for lunch on our way.
