purple day (a picture marathon)


We purpled it up today for Trevor and all the other brave seizure fighters around the world!



How cool are these two?




It's handy that purp has always been Bri-bee's fave color...


but even Tobes was excited to root through his closet until he found something with a hint of purple! His own idea...no mommy pressure involved!

::sniffle sniffle::




All for that guy up there... The one with the cheesy grin...who likes to spill milk (any liquid really) ALL over mommy's freshly mopped floors! That habit's getting really old...


We wear purple for him...


Our very own little seizure fighter hero!





I know we...





make it look easy...







n' stuff....








but seriously...







snapping a pic with Trevy...




i


is kinda like huggin' a greased pig! Not that I would know or anything... I'm not from NE you know!


::grin::







We even convinced Jonathan joined the purple party...




Grab your magnifying glass...




lean in reeeeeeal close...




shut one eye tight...




then blink ten times rapidly...




And you'll see it! The itsy bitsy lavender pin-stripe! Easy to miss...but it's there!





You should wear purple more often, Babe...



I think it's hot!



::wink::





Okay sooooo...



I don't typically get into things like Purple Day (does that make me snob?).



Buuuuuut...



I really needed an outlet to invest energy into a happy...positive...warm n' fuzzy stuff!



Besides I've gotta say...



It was stinkin' overwhelming how many people FB-ed...emailed...called...to say they'd be wearing purple for Trevy! (and by default his fam...and seizure fighting friends...) That was a much needed heart boost at exactly the right time! Thank you...







I say let's do this again next year!

I wore purple for Trevor, my son and everyone else on the planet who deals with this. Just helps to send out the positive vibes.

I think this is a wonderful cause to help get the word out about those suffering Epilepsy and other seizure disorders... I can see this getting bigger and bigger each year.
There was a time when I didn't talk about my Epilepsy but now, I'm beginning to feel a little more relaxed about it!
Hugs to you all... you are a very strong family! =)

Thanks for the support all! I was happily surprised by all the peopl who contacted me to say they were wearing purple in honor of Trevy. It's so crazy how something that seems so small can mean so much...ya know.

btw Michele I popped in at your site...love your pics! If you're ever my way...and inclined to give rookie some pointers...*smile*

Sadly, I had nothing purple so I wore purple's cousin, a bluish purple. Kay wore head to toe purple. Even had purple on her shoes ;) Next year I'll have a purple shirt. It was nice to see all my IRL friends wearing purple though!
