We decided to cut our tree Christmas tree down this year. We found a great place in Augusta,NJ. It was a great idea and great memories to make. The kids had a great time and Mikayla managed the mountain and the snow better than we expected.
We will be doing this again next year.

Dr. Phil should air another show apologizing.
Below is the letter for the Magic Foundation.
Dec 4, 2009 10:36 am (PST)
: D Dr. Phil:The recent segment of your show which dealt with "designer" children was horrifyingly negligent. The children who are taking HGH are prescribed such BY A DOCTOR. They have a medical condition in which their body does not produce enough of the hormone for their body to function. It is NOT all about linear growth, as your show tried to make it. If a child is diagnosed as diabetic, no one would THINK to refuse treatment. This is the same thing...the correct amount of growth hormone is MISSING in these children and all the injections do is REPLACE what is supposed to be there. Why was there no pediatric endocrinologist on your show who specializes in this treatment? I know why...because you would have gotten a response that didn't fit into your sensationistic aspirations for this topic. You don't WANT to show the truth, because that isn't what gets ratings. But you are being very unfair to those whose families are dealing with growthdisorders; and remember...some of them are (or were) your viewers too.---ear
Date: Thursday, December 3, 2009, 1:32 PMDear Families-Unfortunately the Dr. Phil show aired a segment about Designer Kids yesterday... .and guess what....he led with kids on GH!

" Your support has been spectacular. In just the first seven days of taking donations towards the goal of $25,000, we have already surpassed the $8,000 threshold. THANK YOU!
George Chmiel will be competing in the Sahara Race in the Western Desert of Egypt on October 25th, 2009. This 7-day, 155-mile foot-race through the Sahara Desert takes place in the hottest region in the world with a ground temperature that touches 140F each day. Approximately 150 athletes from 30 different countries will be participating in the event; competitors are required to carry all their food, clothes and gear along the way. The Sahara Race is a part of the prestigious 4Deserts series, which was named by Time Magazine as the second most grueling endurance competition on the planet.
George will be supporting Luci Horvath, the Horvath family and the MAGIC Foundation in this quest. Luci, a beautiful and gregarious three-year old girl from Houston was born with panhypopituitarism, a pituitary condition impacting growth and auto-immune functions that is chronic, life-threatening and widely misunderstood. This is a very rare condition that is quite scary and would be too much for many families to handle. But the selfless love and compassion within the Horvath household has given them the strength to deal with it and is nothing short of inspirational.
To that end, George's focus is to raise money, awareness and widespread support for the MAGIC Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to children with disorders similar to Luci's. The MAGIC Foundation has twenty different divisions, including the Panhypopituitarism division, which is the only one of its kind in the world. Please support Luci, George and the MAGIC Foundation in this noble cause so that future generations are more educated and better equipped to fight this disorder.
As a response to an injury, George started running marathons just two years ago. The Sahara Race is a daunting challenge compared to a one day marathon in normal conditions, however the most daunting challenge will be reaching the goal he has set for supporting Luci and the Magic Foundation: To reach 1,000 donors and raise $25,000.
Of course big donations are welcome, but what is also meaningful is the number of supporters that come together for Luci, Magic and George’s quest.
Here’s how you can help. Reach out to your network of friends and share this amazing story."Jolie Horvath
