Helping Where I Can...

I feel like these days, I post nothing but baby updates and product reviews...which is about all I have time for, but I feel like a total slacker!  You guys want recipes, chicken & garden updates, and craft ideas...right?

Well, those are all going to have to wait a little bit.  (You thought I was gonna be productive here, huh?)  Today I want to talk about another Mommy in my Facebook Mommy group(s) [We splintered into three or four groups a few months ago.]  Yesterday, her family was devastated by a fire that engulfed their home, she, her husband, their little girl, and the family dogs are unharmed (physically), but they lost everything else in the fire.  I'm doing what I can by sending off the size 2 diapers that our son has outgrown (her baby is on the smaller side), but that's only about half a package, along with a box of Rice Cereal, a package of wipes (that I swiped from Gabriel's stash), and then I plan to add a bag of dog treats and maybe a few small toys to the box to help fill in the space left.

She uses Gerber brand formula, so I'm looking for coupons for that (it's the one formula I do not have sample cans of, of course, or I'd send those too) and anything else I can help provide her family.  Luckily, we have an awesome group of women and many others are also sending items to her family (clothes, essentials like shampoo, and housewares), I just wish I could do more!  Heck, if I was closer, I'd make a road trip and take some clothes to them too (but, Pennsylvania is a bit of a drive from Washington)!

If you or anyone you know gets Gerber coupons, but doesn't use them, please consider passing them on to a Momma in need!  I do this with all my "baby coupons", I signed up for all of them while pregnant, but since Gabriel is a breastfed baby, we don't use them at all (and we're also doing "Baby Led Weaning", so we don't use baby food either).  I pass them along to those that do use them as they come in the mail to me (just sent a package of coupons out to a Mom using Similac and have an Enfamil coupon sitting next to me waiting to go out today/tomorrow to another Mom.

Triple Fun Exersaucer!
In other news...we got Gabriel a "new to us" Exersaucer at Sweet Repeat over the weekend and he loves it!  I picked it up for $36 after using my 20% off card I had been saving!
Baby enforced weaning!  He wanted to try my Apple slice!

Our freezer(s)!  The bigger one is new because we filled the small one up!
New freezer packed so we can defrost little one! 16 soda boxes all filled with boob juice in there!

Crocheted "dynamite" in progress! Just needs stuffed and finished off!

Baby shades!

Easter!  He was unsure about all the "stuff" (Cadbury's were for Dad...).
