And I have to say, this comment took the cake...
That penny is from my 5 year old daughter. After seeing the video and hearing that I was going to make a donation, she ran to get her piggy bank and said, "I want to give too, Mama. I only have a penny, but he can have it." So we added a penny to our donation. :) Oh the simple faith of children!
Um... what a great lesson for all of us! *sniff*
There is less than 48 hours left for us to rise the Eicher family above $6,000... we can do this, you guys! Every $10 donation gets you the chance to win one of these awesome prizes... nice! Please take a moment to blog, facebook, tweet... be part of something huge!
Sitting in DC traffic along the cherry blossom route... looking for the rare parking spot to open. Grabbing the one spot we found... and taking a few snaps.
Gigi... love her. We spend a lot of time together and have so much fun. She and I... we are one in the same. She.cracks.me.up.

Payton adores her big brother... as in, she is pretty much obsessed with him. She wants to do what he does, wear what he wears, eat what he eats, play what he plays. And bless his heart, he more than embraces her
Oh... forgot one... she wants to sleep where he sleeps. The other night, I went in to check on them after bedtime. I was helping Payton adjust her bipap mask and once I got her settled, she goes, "Maymay. iPah." Haha... yeah, she totally ratted him out. He had the iPad under the covers hiding from me... he was so mad at her! Love it.
The two of them have since been separated... Mason on his top bunk and Payton on the bottom. They both are such restless sleepers, that neither of them were getting a good night sleep. Seems to be going well so far...
And speaking of Mason and his sisters... I tweeted this earlier this week...
Fave part of day so far: Mason taking the time to say goodbye and kiss each of his sisters before running off to school. #itsthelittlethings
I just loved that moment... as insignificant as it may seem. I think because rather than a "Bye!" and a quick kiss for me, he also gave each of his sisters his undivided attention in saying goodbye to them, waiting for their response and them giving each of them a kiss. All while the car pool lane waited.
I dunno... it just really hit me. How did I get so lucky?
