Welcome to my attempt at keeping the masses up to date

Please note: my blog is full of my thoughts, opinions (which are not always "right"), random things relating to my family and friends and the occasional Cut and Paste news.... whatever is important to me. I ramble on from time to time (that's the St. Sauveur in me) and at the end of whatever I wrote you may question what on earth I was thinking or it may not even make sense to you.....sorry....I warned you. You may not always like what you read (I do have an insane case of "Potty Mouth" which I try to hide on here, but it won't always happen) or what you see, but we all have our own opinions on things. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. I do ask that you please leave your name so I know who I'm responding to. If you want to email me privately you may do so at Thanks


Little Miss Taylor Marie. My "Mayhem".

Born on September 24, 2008.

Our little family was finally complete.

My husband will never be the same....poor guy. Outnumbered, with two beautiful little girls, his wife and the family's dog, Courtney. Haha

And our family is never the same.

I can't even begin to think of how different our world would be had she been an "all-bits" kiddo.

We'd never know the love and generosity that would be given by Shriners. That there is more to them than wearing funny red hats (Fez's) and driving little cars in parades.

We'd never have connected with Sammy's Friends or Born Just Right.

I'd likely still be kind of weirded out at the sight of a prosthetic limb.
I wouldn't know the difference between LAE, LBE or theRight's and BK's or what ABS is. That amniotic bands and/or bloodclots can occur during pregnancy and they can cause amputation or even death. That babies can have and use prosthetics. That hook hands are NOT scary but very, very useful and helpful. Or that prosthetic limbs can be designed in several different patterns of TinkerBell, Dora the Explorer and Hello Kitty (Jordan your Armie is awesome!) or anything else that you can come up with.
We wouldn't have met half the people we have since Taylor was born.

I'd still be looking for a way to help others while not having a clear avenue to walk down. And I wouldn't know how awesome life is the way we now know it.

Thank you Taylor for being you and being Born Just Right.
