What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

life as we know it...

Life as we know it is pretty good today! Charli seems to be feeling great - and her counts were good today. Granted, she is still receiving her daily shot...but they could be worse.

My brother is receiving his PhD from Virginia Tech tonight...I am so proud of him! He has spent several years working on it, but he is working on something he seems to love. LUCKY HIM. He is so smart and talented!
We hope that all of you have a very happy Mother's Day!!!

As you can tell, this is a pretty random post - enjoy all the chaos!!!

this is a picture of my "first" haircut. After I developed a bald spot earlier this week, mom & dad decided to give me a very mini cut, so we could keep a little peice of my hair. It was a hard moment for mommy, but Aunt Amanda was there for her!

daddy hates when boys where their hats like this! But seriously...what is cuter than this?!


mom is always sneaking around with her camera....!

just wanted to drop in to tell you all "hello"!!


My nephew graduated from high school last week. Isn't he handsome!

I loved your random thoughts. We are thinking about Randy tonight also...and thanks for the picture of Bryant. We were so sad that we didn't get up for the graduation, and, yes, he is extremely handsome. Charli looks so cute in her pink hat. Glad she had a good day and blood count was good. Love you,

AJ

Loved to get the pictures. She is cute and always looks so happy. She looks like she is growing so she must be eating better. I was glad you were able to attend Bryant's graduation-I think he is very handsome too and have been showing off his picture to my friends. His aunt is pretty good looking too.
I am very proud of Randy too-he has worked hard.NELL
I was pleased to hear the counts were good.

You don't know me, but I check your site almost daily. I love your positive spin on things. Most don't understand what it is like to be in this situation, and some may even think you aren't handling this well and that they would do things so differently. But trust me; from someone who has been there, you are doing an amazing job. I wish I could have been as strong for my family as you are for yours. God Bless you and your family. I pray for a quick remission for Charli, and NO RELAPSE! I hope NED comes soon.

I just wanted you to know that you are making a difference in this world, a good and big difference.
