Caileigh's Crusade

The following post is from my sisters blog but I took it to pass along. My niece has Muscular Dystrophy so it makes it hard to play on playgrounds...Please read on!!
Caileigh's Crusade

After much debate we decided to do it... To petition all city and county parks and rec. to install at least 1 handicap playground in the community. We are going to begin to do this nation wide eventually. I am spreading the word that it is unfair for my child, your child, or any handicap child to not have the option to play at the park.

My daughter is 5 years old and sadly has only played at the park a handful of times. Due to her muscle deterioration she is not able to climb on the equipment at a standard playground. So sadly we tell her "NO" because the risk of injury is way to great. She lacks the muscles in her neck and joints and if she were to fall in jsut the wrong way she could be more critical than she is now.

I have e-blasted this all over the web. I have added it to facebook, cafemom, and even her website. All it takes is one person to make a difference. Please help Caileigh be that person.

More pictures...

Here are some pictures my sister took of me and Cameron! I photoshopped them to the best of my ability.

We don't have alot of pictures of the two of us. We have random holiday ones and our wedding pictures but that's about it so I was very excited to have this chance!! Cameron not so much!!

I love this one even though Cameron's eyes are closed!

red or brown???

So I have a hair appt on December 5 and I have no idea what to do. The above picture is my current color...very light brown with alot of highlights.

I adore Kate Beckisales look...her hair color and her makeup. It's obviously a darker brown...probably closer to my natural color!

However, for about a year now I have wanted to go red. I don't know why...I guess because I might as well do it now in my 20's when I can get away with trying new things. Plus I tend to have red undertones in my hair anyways.

I am so torn...brunette would be easy upkeep while I hear that red tends to fade easily. Please grace me with your opinions!!

PS: The above picture is kinda silly...we were playing in leaves like little kids!!

Aha...I figured it out!!
So here are some of the pictures I took. I only included a few because uploading the pics is a pain in the rear! I am no good at photoshop but I did the best I could!

Todd, Shauna, and Caileigh! Don't you just love Cai's pose?!

Taia and Caileigh...they were striking a pose!!

Rachel and Taia!
Rachel is not too fond of any of the pictures but I really like this one!!
I know that I need alot of help with photography but this was just practice and I am proud of myself!

I am so mad right now...our internet is not working correctly so I can not upload any pictures. I have a few from last weekend when I took pictures of my family but I can't get them on here. Hopefully Cameron will be able to figure it out!

What to be when I grow up....

How on earth do people know what they want to be when they grow up? I am 26 years old and I think I have only just now figured out what I want to do for the rest of my life.

I am starting school, again, at the end of March to be a photographer! I love taking pictures of children and I think that I do a good job at it so I am very excited about this!

This weekend I am actually going to take pictures of my sisters and their girls for Christmas cards. This will be the test to determine if it is truly what I want to do. They are being very trusting by putting this in my hands! I am sure that I will have plenty of pictures to post afterwards!

The girls...take 2!

I have 3 sisters; Rachel, Shauna, and Brianne! I saw Brianne at the MDA walk on Saturday. That was the first time I have seen her in 5 years. Her mom keeps her away from me for some unknown reason, so I was very excited when I found out that she would be at the walk! I took the time to get a few pictures cause I have no idea when I will see her again!

I also got a picture with my nieces because I have very few of those!

MDA Walk of Hope

Today was the MDA Walk of Hope at Zoo Atlanta! It was alot of fun to be around people who all share the same goal of raising money to find a cure for muscular dystrophy! $175,000.00 was raised this year and that is very exciting!

Shauna pushing her daughter, Caileigh, who has muscular dystrophy. Caileigh is holding our niece, Taia.

Andrea doing the YMCA at the table. It was a warmup song! She's just crazy!

Caileigh and Sparky the fire dog!

Work, work, work! That's what I have been up to lately. Not anything great and exciting.

The family I work for is getting ready to move so things have been pretty hectic at their house. I am a nanny for 2 wonderful boys who keep me on my feet.

This weekend is the Muscular Dystrophy Association walk at the zoo...getting pretty excited. My sister made half the shirts and I am going to make the other half this week...I promise!

I am very boring this week but this weekend I plan on updating with some ideas of what I want to do to the house!
