And we're back!

Mar 7, 2011

I’ve decided that it’s much more fun being public than it is private…and I’ve been struggling to figure out how to allow people to see this blog, using the permission restrictions I had on it before.  So, I’ve thrown caution to the wind and decided to open this up again.  Hopefully it will inspire me to blog more.  I’ve been slacking more than ever before and I’m sure I’ve got some angry aunties that want updates on our little one.

We’ve been busier than ever lately and I can certainly attribute that to my ‘Katy’s Creations’ project on top of having a newborn and Bennett delving deeper and deeper into his photography craft.  Only crazy people like Bennett and myself would decide to pick up hobbies after a baby arrives.  What were we thinking?

I wanted to let everyone know about our fundraising efforts that we’ve been involved in lately — hopefully to inspire some people to pitch in as well.  We will be participating in ‘Light the Night’ again this year, this will be our third time doing it!  I can’t remember exactly what we were able to raise last year…but I don’t care either! I want to blow it out of the water!

Here’s the link to the site: Light the Night – The McKinleys.
If you’d like to donate, I’ve also got a bit of a promotion going on with Katy’s Creations.  During the month of March, I am doing a raffle drawing for each person who has donated.  Every dollar is a ‘name in the hat’ and you will receive a custom hat of choice from me.  On top of ‘Caps for Chemo’, I’ve been busy trying to fulfill my New Year’s Resolution of being proactive.

Just so I have at least one cute thing to share on here involving the little guy…here’s a video we took of him the other day ‘practicing’ new noises.  He is so ridiculous. 🙂
