BraveHEART Baskets and Lorelei, Wow Oh Wow!

Here are some recent pics: The first is of our first child Lola, she puts up with an awful lot from Miss Lorelei and she keeps coming back for more! Speaking of Miss Lorelei, she likes to do acrobatics and climb, tries to put on her own socks and tries to eat with a spoon! She is getting so big. She now weighs in at exactly 20 lbs and is 30.5 inches tall. We have faced her car seat forwards and she loves it! Her new favorite words are No!, Uh oh!, Mine, and Wow! Oh Wow! She totally cracks us up! Anytime there is any kind of music on she dances, even if she is tired some part of her will move a little.
Shannon and I are also getting the Golf Tournament together! If you would like to play just email me at and I will get you the info! The date is Monday August 31! Come join us, there might be some surprises!

Shannon and I have made 14 baskets so far and she is bringing the first round down to MUSC on Thursday because her son Derrick is having a heart cath. We have mailed the first basket down this week! I will let you know how it goes but we are having a Pampered Chef fundraiser to help with our baskets!
If you would like to help us out by ordering some really great kitchen stuff, go to Click on Shop Online. Click option 1 and put in Shannon Carter for the host. Then you can shop all you want. The goods come directly to your house, so it doesn't matter where you live! It's AWESOME, and we hope it raises money so we can buy more goodies for the kiddos. Thank you to ALL OF YOU who have made donations already!
We went shopping again for the baskets this afternoon and we have some awesome stuff! We will get some pics up on the BH Basket blog soon! The second round of baskets will be going to MUSC with us when we go for Lo's surgery on Sept 9!

We went to Dr. Shuler on Monday and he just wanted to go over everything again and to make sure we didn't have any questions. He said that she looked great! We are very happy for that! I am getting anxious though but I will get through it!

Golf Tournament and BraveHeart Baskets

Monday August 31st at 1:30pm Palmetto Hearts is having a Golf Tournament to raise money for families with children who have CHD's. If you know of anyone who would like to play or sponsor a hole, etc please go to Palmetto Hearts look on the left hand column for Golf Tournament 2009 and click which form you would need to use. We appreciate anything anyone would like to do for us!

Also, we are still looking for donations (monetary or otherwise) for our baskets that we are calling BraveHeart Baskets for ages 1 - 10. We are working on some so that we can put up some pictures and I will list what we need soon.

Thanks again for everyone helping! We are celebrating John and my birthdays and then we will start getting ready to go to MUSC, Sept 8.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
