SUPPORT RILEY HOSPITAL and get a Christmas gift for someone on your list :)

Buy the Majic Miracle Music CD Volume 3 and 100% of the proceeds will go to Riley Children's hospital in Indianapolis. The CD insert has a photo that I took awhile back of Aleigha for the Littlest Heroes. I also have a daycare kid who receives treatment at Riley, so it's a charity close to my heart:) You can buy the CD online at http://www.sweetwater.com/feature/majic_miracle_v3/ or if you are local, I will be selling some of them as well, so let me know and I will hook you up! :)

Aleigha update! Great news:)

If you remember I did a littlest heroes shoot recently for a beautiful little princess named Aleigha. You can read her original story HERE and the rest of it HERE .
I got news recently that Aleigha is considered NED which stands for No Evidence of Disease. She has had her last chemo treatment. Please keep her in your prayers that this is IT and she'll never have to battle with that horrible disease again:)
You can leave well wishes for Aleigha at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/aleighasweet.

A few more of the kids and Jeremy

It sure takes me forever to get my own shoots done! haha.
I am making shirts with this top image on them to wear at his deployment ceremonies and things... and whenever we're missing him:) Each of the kids' has a different picture in the clip (well the boys' is the same). This one is mine. If you click on the image you can see it larger. I don't always allow this on here, but this one definitely needs to be seen bigger :)

Then these are just a few of the kids wearing his dogtags:)

A few more of Emmy

Emmy I am done with your photos and will have your gallery up sometime tomorrow!
I could post these pics all day long. They turned out gorgeous! :)

My way ... hehe

Emmy seemed like a very agreeable nice girl when I met her, so I'm not making any assumptions or anything, but I thought this pose was cute and fitting for most any teen. Mom was amused by it as well, so there was probably a little truth to it ? ;) Anyway, too fun not to share!

A couple more of Emmy

I am no where near getting through all of these, but I keep running across ones that I really want to share :)

Homecoming sneak peak

This is my "little" cousin Kaleb and his homecoming date. Kaleb was the ring bearer in my wedding when he was like 3, so it makes me feel REALLY old to take pics of him going to homecoming! Aren't they cute though?

So I lied...

I FINALLY finished editing the entire set of Aleigha's pictures and I can't stop with the last image I put up yesterday. I have just a couple more I can't help but share here. This is really it though.

Thanks again for this opportunity. Aleigha is amazing! So glad I got to meet her.

So sweet! Lovin mama

The rest of Aleigha's story ...

Aleigha's dad sent me an update from last November till now of Aleigha's story.

In November 07 Aleigha relapsed. Her Drs. told us that this time the cancer would take her. That hit us hard, but Aleigha she looked at her Dr. and told him he didnt know what he was talking about, and preceded to tell him she would beat it this time too. Aleigha was put on an experimental clinical trial in Nov. 07. She goes to Riley ever 21 days for one day to start each round of chemo. She has 3 chemo meds to take. The first one is only on the first day. She gets that thru her PIC line and then the other are for 5 days and they are oral chemos. Day one is at Riley and days 2 thru 5 are at home. She cant stand the taste of them but takes them anyway. Then once a week we go to Lutheran Hospital here in Fort Wayne for lab work and check ups.
It was very hard to hear that the cancer would eventually take her. We had long talks and decided to live with no regrets. That is to do what ever Aleigha wants to do. That way we never have the regrets of not doing something. We also let everyone know that Aleigha was in charge and we will fight this with her as long as she is able.
The scans started to show small shrinkage in each of the three hot spots. Then in June the scans stayed the same no changes. That was good that they stopped growing and are now stable. In August 08 we went to teh PPB family get together and conference in Bloomington Minnesota and met other PPB families and the top Drs. in the study and treatment of PPB. Aleigha is patient 203 in the world and now there are only 254 cases in the world. We learned both good and bad news, and made connections with the other families and we keep in touch with them. The bad news that we leaarned was that no one with stage 3 PPB has survived after relapsing. We learned that our Drs. are doing an awesome job, and we believe Aleigha will survive this and pave the way for others to beat it too. The trial we are on ends in November 08. We will discuss with her Drs. what the next best coarse will be and continue on that path.
Aleigha has been just amazing through all of this and has maintained a positive strong attitude that she will win. Aleigha is our Hero and has many followers on her web-site that encourage her and the rest of the family to fight on. Thanks go out to God, Aleighas Power of Pink, and all thoughs who pray for her.

Daddy of the Pink Princess

I'll leave you with that and this final image from my photo shoot with Aleigha. I just had her look out the window, but the way she's looking up in this one almost looks like she's having her own conversation with God while I'm snapping away. I love it.

For those of you who are following this blog and Aleigha's story, I encourage you to keep visiting her site and leave her a message of encouragement now and then. After meeting this little girl, I know if anyone can beat this, she will :)

More Aleigha! In her princess attire;)

I brought along this Cinderella costume just in case Aleigha might want to wear it for some pics. She IS a princess after all... ;) She did (obviously) decide to wear it for a bit and she LOVED the shoes that went with it, and I'm not sure they showed in a single pic! Go figure! She kept commenting how comfy they were and you have no idea how hard it was for me not to say "you can have them!" But since the costume is my daughter's (not that it fits her anymore) she wore it on her 5th bday so it's sentimental to her... I figured I'd better show a little restraint. haha. I did at least tell them where we got it. Hopefully they can find some shoes just like them:)

and we definitely had to do some lollipop shots

I know it was killing them to touch each other this long;) haha j/k

One more for today...

Not much diff than the others I posted, but w/out the hat :)

Which one ?

I like parts about all 3 of these... I can't decide which is my fave. Not that it matters, they'll get them all! This one really speaks to me. I think there's a lot of symbolism here.
