giveaway game!

I think I cheated, but if I still won, then thanks, Rachel! I'm excited for my gift. :P

All right, this is how it works..... The first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive a hand made gift from me during this year. When and what will be a surprise. BUT, in order for you to leave a comment on my blog, you have to post this on your blog first. (That means that sometime during this year you will send a gift to 3 people as well.) Get it? So, the first 3 people to comment on this post will be the lucky ones! Good Luck!

sweet little oliver

Last Saturday, my sister Sarah and her husband Jared's little Oliver passed away in Primary Children's Medical Center.

He has always been such a sweet boy, and lucky me who looks a little like my sisters, he would come to me without a fuss and let me hold him. I could sit for an hour or two with him on my lap and he would just sit there, contented. Just a week and a half ago, at my uncle Ron's rememberance party at Buca di Beppo, Oliver tried to eat my place mat and had me doing acrobatics to keep him out of my ice water. He almost laughed that day, if I remember right. We were all pretty funny looking, so I don't blame him for wanting to.

He died in his father's arms, after being admitted for influenza type A the day before. He will be missed.

So, to Oliver! May we all remember him and remember to show love and support to his family.
