THIS is what life is all about

What an AMAZING few days we have had! Saturday we braved the "crowed" and went to the Duncan Rib Fest with my parents, Grandma & Grandpa Preister were also there! Charli was bored but handled it well!

Sunday Chad and I thought all day about what we could do to make the day special...finally at 3:00 we decided to load Charli up and take her to Humphrey to visit the baby kitties that she saw a few weeks ago. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen! I can't post all of the pictures, because she was pretty "violent" with them, but I PROMISE that no baby kittens were hurt during her experience, in fact they loved her even more after she loved them so physically! I guess what my brother used to say is true, if you are mean to cats, they love you even more - a bit odd but tested and confirmed!

Today Charli and I went on a nice walk this morning and came back for a short nap. When she woke up we met her Aunt Vicki and three of her boys at the park for a picnic and swing ride! I will post pictures from that later, they are not uploaded yet!

It is such an amazing feeling to know that Charli is not going back for chemo anytime soon. Although, I will admit I do feel like I still have a "monkey on my back" not knowing what is to come in that department. I know that to most people, our fight is over - that is far from true. But, unless you have been in these shoes you don't really know how they feel - and I understand that...and I am sure it appears that way, but trust me when I say that it isn't. And, although we have received great news, it isn't over...it will never be over.

Enjoy the pictures :-)

If there is one thing that I have learned with Danielle & Zoe and now with you & Charli is that each day is truly a gift...that we need to take the time and live in the moment...to enjoy each and every second we get with our children...to understand how truly blessed we are to have become parents!! Enjoy the day!! Love the new pictures...Charli you are absolutely beautiful!!!!
