Jeff Doing Service

I am probably going to get this wrong but every year the Utah Utes pick a child that is sick and wants to meet the team and/or coaches and they visit them and give them cool stuff like a signed football or other cool goodies.  Anyway this is the second or third year and to cheer me up Jeff sent me this picture of them with this happy kid.  Jeff is usually the one who coordinates and gets it all together so I am really proud of him!  Go UTES!

That is seriously really awesome. I have a close friend who's son suffers from combined immunodeficiency, a genetic disease that affects the ability of white blood cells to protect the body from infection and disease. (His 2 year old sister died because of it a couple of years ago... they are a truly amazing family.) Anyway, he was able to do Make-A-Wish and go to Disney with Kurt Warner of the Cardinals.

Things like this mean sooooooooooooooo much to these kids and I can't imagine how grateful I would feel as a parent to see my kid live in that moment of happiness. It does my heart good to see people like your hubby taking the time out of their super busy lives to make things like this happen. :)

Hey I love your blog...I too am stalking.. found it on Rhett and Tiffanies blog..anyway Jackson (my son who is 8) has a newly diagnosed case of lymphadema and it is has no cure and he will have to live and suffer with it the rest of his life.. but while we were in Primary Childrens the USA Ski Team came and I am here to tell you first hand my son thought that was incredible.. and so did all the other kids.. they made pins and snow and painted.. but it was the fact that they took time from their training to visit just warmed richard and my son still wears the hat and shirt they gave him and while at Primarys told everyone that he got to meet a gold medal skier.. he was so happy and for that moment forgot about his illness.... hands down to Jeff and the Utes... they have no idea what an impact this will make on that childs life.. I know what the ski team did for Jackson.. take care..glad to see you and your darling kids..

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
