because they are very special....
No, not these Peeps, even though they do a good job of satisfying my need for sugar....pure sugar.
But these! These are the Peeps who helped me launch my blog! Yes, they sure did! They encouraged me and jumped right in there and commented without forethought or shame. So let me introduce you, as best I can.
This is Hallie with one of her weiner dogs. I don't know how many she has....but she sure does love them, and they love her! Thank you, Hallie, for the warm welcome into the world of blogging.
Meet Postcard Cindy. Here is one awesome woman who earned her nickname not from blogging but from DOING! That's right.....Cindy doesn't have a blog, but she donates time, money and postcards. She is there when she is needed. Cindy painted Christmas plates to raise thousands of dollars to help families of cancer kids. She never asks for anything in return. I thank you, Cindy! Ok, Veronica! Veronica loves me....and I love her. Who the heck are you, Veronica? I made your outfit fancy with spots on it and I put some cows out to pasture because I do know you live in Texas, and if you live in Tx then it's all about the cattle....sort of. So keep visiting me, and tell me more about you....girlfriend!My oldest daughter Kim , is a blogger from Southern CA. She is a Trojan, and don't ever forget it. Some Trojans like to show their colors by wearing USC Hawaiian shirts...because they aren't in Hawaii.... Kim has three little kidlets. One is a cancer survivor and Kim has become a strong advocate for pediatric cancer research. Her kids love baseball, swimming, dancing and anything Disney!
Meet Kelly , she is my baby. Kelly lives in Colorado where they have big mountains and very little oxygen. Her two boys are total jocks and love all sports....you name it! They call me Grandma DeLux...and we can all guess why! I know she doesn't hang out in blogville much but she had to take a peek. I heart Kelly and her family.
Briana is someone most of us know. We know her and admire her, yes! If you are wondering why she is the only one wearing spandex pants it's because she is nothing if she's not riding for a cure. Briana runs too. She raises tens of thousands for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and Team in Training. Marey and Kim do too....as well as others but Briana LIVES it. I like her so much I gave her a water bottle shaped like a rocket. Yep, nothing is too good for Briana.Thank you..for all you do. This is Marey . I have known Marey for over four years. Marey is a kindergarten teacher and a good one at that! We've never met in person but I have followed her oldest daughter's cancer journey and now she's cancer free and in college. Marey also makes hundreds of Christmas Santa plates to raise thousands of dollars for pediatric cancer families every year. Hopefully your family will never be on the receiving end of Marey's generosity...you can check them out and make a note to order some next year...EVERYONE should have one...I do! Meet Cortney . I know Cortney through other blogs. She is an AGGIE....and Aggies don't have long horns. I don't know what they have except good sports and sports fans. Actually Texas A&M is a mighty fine institution academically as well. Cortney likes vollyball too...that's why I gave her one. She's blurry because she just can't stand still....sort of. Thank you, Cortney for making me smile, and we really have to get together some day since we are both in CenTex...which is much more than a home builder....yes, way!
There you have it! I love my Peeps! I won't blog tomorrow on Good Friday, but I want you to all have a Happy Easter, and remember it really is all about HIM.
Love, Grandma J
