I know you are probably sick of seeing all of the ice bucket challenge videos by now, but I had to get this documented on the blog. If you know me at all, you know that I don’t do well with anything cold. I walk around most of the summer in a sweater. Seriously. I just freeze all the time. The thought of having ice water poured on my head was NOT something that I planned on doing. Then I was challenged by my two sweet friends Melanie and Jenni. After that, I knew I had to do it. Plus the fact that my daughter was reminding me every five minutes that I wasn’t getting out of it. ;-) As you can see in the pictures, she was QUITE excited about the whole thing! I thought it was COLD!!! There really was ice in there. Most of it melted because I kept delaying it because I was so afraid of the cold water. Yes, I am a wimp! I admit it!
I totally hate how I sound on videos or anything recorded, but I did it. It was for a good cause. I challenged my three kids Logan, Noah and Kendall, as well as my two friends Shawn and Jennifer. We chose to make our donation to the Gleason Initiative Foundation. They work directly to help ALS patients who are suffering with the disease.
Of course, Miss Kendall was right on my heels to do her challenge. I video taped while Logan did the pouring of the bucket! I couldn’t believe she didn’t scream or anything.
Still waiting on the boys to do theirs. Logan has been working all week so he hasn’t had time. Noah currently has a cold so he is waiting until he feels just a bit better before he freezes.
OH, and please excuse my deck. We had the chairs stacked up before a nasty storm that was coming through to keep them from blowing everywhere. We have the hammock all rolled up to take out to the trash because it’s faded and needs replaced. We really need to have the whole deck redone. So many of the boards are warped and it just isn’t a highest quality job in the first place. I am dreaming of doing this. While I am dreaming, I would love a living room like this along with the gorgeous view too. I sure hope my spot in heaven resembles something like that! Anyway… I don’t think we will be getting our deck redone until we get these three kiddos through college so for now I make due with what I have. I would like to get a sofa and chair set to go out there though. There is a lot more deck than what you see here so we have plenty of room. Sorry, got off topic there. I love daydreaming though. :-) Have a great day!
