For those of you who took your kid’s out trick or treating… How did your kid’s make out? Any good snacks in those bags?

My kids lasted a total of 10 minutes outside on our street and then came in wanting to hand out candy. I literally ate their candy bowl in 5 days! I felt so sick. It is me who ends up suffering.

Now we can look forward to preparing for the Winter Holidays 🙂

HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

I am sorry for this heart breaking notice, but these Halloween costumes below were supposed to be for Jennifer Neville-Lake’s Children this year. Her beautiful babies were ripped away from her due to a horrible decision made by an ignorant person. If you have children, please think about Signing The Two Petition Letters to help push Marco Muzzo to get the maximum jail sentence. The letter information is below these pictures. It literally takes 1 minute or less to do.

11026331_10156137396360024_2315070811813824688_n 12191489_10156137396280024_7121450792633642909_n

12011144_10156137396155024_8549536921350696961_n

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!

THANK YOU FOR CARING…
