My current mission is "CRAFTING FOR A CAUSE".
What is my cause you may ask? We have some dear friends Nathan and Megan who have recently began their adoption process after a long awaited answer on which direction to go for starting their family.
Read more on their story HERE

What is my craft you may ask? My craft is this: do I make something that you are willing and wanting to buy? Is it a pillowcase dress? Burp clothes, bibs, blankies, diaper pouches? An applique onsie or shirt? An embellished tank top? Handmade cards?… and so on…
I'm no master at crafting but I enjoy it and am excited to pass the joy on.
So here's the deal. IF there is something crafty that you've been wanting or needing or have someone in mind to give it to let me know. We'll see if there is something that we can come up with and the money will be donated to the adoption.
Nathan and Megan have decided to have a garage sale to raise money for their adoption read about that HERE the sale is June 17th and 18th.
Do you have something you'd like to donate? Items you'd like to sell for a great cause?
Do YOU craft and would like to get involved? If so we'll take it!!!!!!!
Maybe you make jewelry or sew or do some sort of artwork?
Maybe you have big items sitting in your basement needing a new home. Obviously not all my readers can donate their big items due to the distance. But some of you may be able to do that. Some of you maybe able to stick a few handmade things in the mail that they can set out at the garage sale.
If you answer yes to any of these then we are the people for you! "Send me a fax, send me a letter give me a call that would even be better." " Hey mister post man look and see, is there a letter, a letter for me?"
Send me a text, shoot me a message on facebook, send a telegram, you get the point. 
We need YOU to make this possible! We need YOU to help make a couples dream of becoming a family a reality. Whatever the case may be, if you the Lord lays it on your heart to help I know one family that will be more than happy to take it.

So here's what to do… leave a comment on the blog if you have something in mind, or email me at: [tammihamilton @ gmail DOT com]


Your prayers are more than appreciated as they go on this journey of adoption.

Silver Dollar City

A few weeks ago Cooper and I got to go to Silver Dollar City with our good friends Barron and Betsy. We were excited this trip actually happened because we had been getting SO much rain and the forecast was calling for rain that day too. With a check of the radar and jacket in hand we headed out only to find it was sunny and 80 degrees for us when we got there!
We had a nice time walking around, sampling the saltwater taffy and eating kettle corn. 
Barron and Betsy wanted to see the Russian Circus while we were there but we weren't sure if Coop would sit through it or not. The sitting through it wasn't the issue it was the giant spot light cutting through the darkness near us that was the problem. He absolutely freaked out! He loves flash lights and any other kind of lights so it was much to our surprise when he began to freak out. I'm not sure if it was the dust particles in the air that he could see in the light or that the beginning of the show was really loud so it just started us off on the wrong foot or what but he was not a fan! So Coop and I endured the show standing up at the back behind the spot light. He would have been happy if I would have let him play on the stairs but little did he know those stairs lead to the sound booth AND spotlight! I didn't think they'd appreciate him playing around the equipment.  

We snapped a few shots of him in the jail. Betsy and Barron we so good to wait and let him do things or be slow at walking up hills. Barron even sat with him while Betsy and I rode a crazy disk ride. They sat and enjoyed a frozen lemonade while we spun around way up in the air!

Here are some shots of us on the buggies. He didn't quite know what to think I don't think. He surprisingly didn't want to push the button that made us go up so I took the controls and made sure he got the most of the ride.

Asking if he wanted to go UP

Trying to get him to put his arms up like we were on a roller coaster. 

All in all we had a good day and Coop did great even though he didn't have a nap. On our way home we stopped for pizza at a place called Pizza Chef. If I'm ever in Branson West again I'll be sure to stop here. We all really enjoyed it!
Thanks B&B for such a fun day at that City!!
