New Happenings with Mamies Poppy Plates

I am so excited that we will be moving into our new headquarters the first of August. This all couldn't have come at a better time. God has lead us every step of the way with Mamies Poppy Plates. Once we get in and settled I will post some pictures. I can't wait to hang the amazing painting Bethany Cannon painted at our race. It will look so good there.

Since the race lots of new and exciting things have happened.

First is getting our awesome headquarters donated to us from Dr. and Mrs. Strong. They have been so kind to us! I couldn't thank them enough as well as their daughter Sharron. Sharron and I went to high school together. I hadn't seen or talked to her in probably 10 years when Mamie died. She sent me the kindest letter and this amazing book that she had put together for me of quotes people had posted on Facebook and places for me to insert pictures of Mamie. Through tragedy you really see who your friends really are and make so many new amazing friends…

More fun at the lake


Oh my goodness I was in tears the other morning watching Burke for the first time at ECA at church.  I was so glad I got to sneak in and see what they do.  They strap them all in the mini chairs at a mini table where they sing songs about how much God loves them.  They pass object around for the babies to see.  I remember everyone telling me that the very first time Burke went they passed a baby bible to him.  He started gnawing on it.  He is such a billy goat :)  This Sunday he got to sit next to his good friend Sydney who is such a doll baby.   Sydney's momma is on our Mamie's Poppy Plates board and we love her so very much.   Be sure to check out the video at the end.  

ENT- Sick baby

We have had a crazy past couple of weeks.  First off Burke bit his lip about a month ago.  The spot puffed out and hasn't gone away.  We went to see the doctor and he sent us over to the ENT.  We found out there that sometime this kind of trauma to the lip can cause a small cyst to form.  She said it isn't going to hurt him it could just bother him which I know it does because he always has his hands in his mouth messing with it.  We decided to give it a few months to see if it will go away by itself.  If it doesn't they will have to put him under to cut it off and put a few stitches in.  I hate to think he would have to go under.  I mean I know parents have to do it all the time but for something so small that isn't hurting I just don't know.  
She then looked in his ears and informed me that he was in the early stages of an ear infection.  REALLY!  Geez.  We started him that day on an antibiotic.  We made it through the weekend and the following Tuesday (last Tu…
