Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you're alive, it isn't.
--- Richard Bach
I have come to realize more and more that the greatest disease and the greatest suffering is to be unwanted, unloved, uncared for, to be shunned by everybody, to be just nobody [to no one]
We were not separated at your birth.
It was the moment at which we began our journey toward each other.

I test drove this stroller at babies r us the other day. It is one of the most versatile strollers I have ever seen. The twins loved it and I loved I could turn the seats around if they were bothering each other;) It has many different seating configurations and the bucket seats can both be removed entirely. Remember this stroller can also be used as a SINGLE stroller with a place for shopping bags when you remove one of the seats. It can be used with an infant seat(or two infant seats for twins) and a toddler. It can be used for two toddlers. It could be given as a baby shower gift or donated to charity. You could sell it on ebay or craigs list. It got a four out of five star rating on Amazon. Personally I feel this stroller should appeal to anyone who has a child or knows someone with a child. It is a win, win situation when you donate.
Watch this utube video to see the stroller in action:

I have decided what my next fund raising cause will be; I told you I had an idea brewing and I have come to a decision. This one feels really good. I have always wanted to do something big like this in Vietnam; Change the life of a WHOLE family. When I traveled to Vietnam in 2007, to bring home my children, I could not believe what I saw. Families (Not 1 but thousands) living in conditions I would not consider adequate for my dog to live in (The average ANNUAL household income in Vietnam is less then $300 US per year); Shacks with dirt floors, no windows or doors and a tarp or cardboard boxes for a roof. I could not leave these people behind, come home to my cushy life in the US and forget what I had seen. I vowed to myself I would try and make a difference. Together WE are going to build a house (or hopefully two) for a very poor family in Vietnam. For every $10 donated you get one entry; Each $25.00 donation will get you three entries (Entries with US addresses ONLY; Anybody can donate to cause-I just can't afford to ship it overseas). If you DONATE AND Blog (with Link back to this blog post) and post my widget about my giveaway you will get an extra entry. Leave a comment here with the link to your blog post to get your extra entry. Even if you don't need a double stroller this can turn into a SINGLE stroller, it would make a awesome baby shower gift, donate it or sell it on craigs list or ebay. It's just 10 bucks so take a chance you just might win the stroller but the true prize is what you will have done to improve another human beings life. Random number generator will be used to pick the winner. Please pass this along it is for a very worthy cause. I need at least 175 donations to make this dream a reality. You can donate by paypal OR credit card through the chip in widget. If you have a paypal account I would prefer you use this because they charge me a fee for the credit card. Credit card payments are fine if you do not have a paypal account.
The giveaway is for a brand new Contours Options Tandem stroller in Red (Retail Value $249.99).
The Contours® Options® Tandem is the perfect stroller to give you the flexibility needed as a parent. For 1 or 2 kids, infant or toddlers, everyone has a great view in any direction with its reversible seats! It is the ultimate stroller with lots of options for your ever changing life style!Features:

We got our first big snow storm of the winter this week. Who would of ever thought it would happen on the first day of March?
This is the first time the babies have been out in snow. They just kept saying snow over and over when it was coming down. They did not know what to make of it once we got them out in it. Meliah wanted her Daddy to carry her everywhere; Of course Princess won that one. Khai liked it a little better then Meliah. Saige was disappointed that the snow would not pack good to make a snowman.

I wish her the best of luck with her new store.

These pictures are not the greatest but they show you what happened at our house today;Spa Day 2. Saige did Meliah's makeup. How does it look? What you can't see is the bottle of blue glitter in her hair. Saige used Halloween paint on her own face and turned every inch of it bright red. She tried to wash it off before she showed me but couldn't get it to come off. I couldn't get a picture but you can imagine.
