Race Update

The Race to Remember 5K that benefits my non-profit Mamie's Poppy Plates is getting so close and I am getting super nervous and excited all at once :)  I know we are going to have an amazing turn out like the past 2 years.  Just saying lots of prayers that it all comes together just the way we are all planning.  We have so many amazing people helping out and I am ever so thankful for the love and energy they are putting into this event.  For those of you out there that don't know this is our biggest fundraiser for the year.  We raise 70% of our funds through this race.  What this money helps us do is expand and offer more families who are experiencing the tragic loss of their baby a special plate at no charge.

I was talking to Tricia with the other day about all the props the race committee came up with for the open air photo booth.  She was sending me proofs and ideas which all look really great.  I think the families are going to love this new addition to the race this year.

Registrations are going up every day which is great.  I have a hard time not going to the site a few 100 times a day to see where our numbers are.  AH!!!!!! The tshirts for registrants are SUPER cute this year.  We are going with a navy blue this year instead of white and the design is really cool.  I will post some pics closer to time :)  Not sure I have the okay from our designer to do that just yet :)

The other day I talked to one of my really good high school friends that I haven't seen or talked to in years.  He is such a sweet guy.  He now own's Papa Murphy's here in LR and is going to supply all the pizza for the race. WHOOHOOO!!!!!  Thanks Ben!  The cool thing about our race and pre-party is once you get in the doors EVERYTHING is free :)

Anyway, I am getting super excited and can't wait for it to be here ;)

Here is the video I put together thanks to the fabulous pictures taken by my friends Ben Krain and Amanda Moore.


  1. It's going to be such a great turnout! Can I be on Team Mamie this year and get one of her shirts? I forgot to mention that I wanted to join it when I submitted my virtual runner last week.

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
