I’m Lovin My New AppleCheeks Cloth Diapers ~

In my search for more microfleece diapers or natural fiber diapers, I ran across Applecheeks! I’d heard about them before, but I’d never given them a try, as we had previously been completely set on diapers.

Family Update ~ Healing Prayers Requested

UPDATE: Here is a link to her update: WVU Children’s Cancer Center   I just received news that my 4-year-old grand niece is extremely sick! This is what I know so far.

Urgent Care said she was extremely anemic and needed a blood transfusion immediately, so they rushed her to the local hospital. She was examined and they found a cancerous tumor on her kidney. They know […]
