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...

never underestimate friendship

Charli and I had a great welcome home from work & daycare today...GOOD LUCK SIGNS from our friends the McMeekins!!!!! I will post pictures of the sign, and close-ups so you can read what they had to say. It was such a sweet gesture, and made us feel so special!

Charli got to play in the leaves again today, she really enjoys being outside. Cute pictures from that too!
what's up there?!!

running to see daddy when he gets makes everyone happy!!

let me in - let me in!

look at this awesome leaf mommy!

Charli's eyes seem to be doing better - but we aren't' sure! She has been on antibiotic eye drops since Monday, we will see how she is doing after the weekend. If they work, that will be the end of it! If they don't work...well, then it won't be the end :-(

We are heading to Omaha tomorrow for Charli's CT scans. She will have her scan at 10:30, and should be back with us by 11:00. After that, we don't really know what the future holds. We really do need to talk to the doctor, but unfortunately that doesn't mean much! There is a chance that her doctor won't be in - or will be busy when we are ready. So, I don't really know what to expect for tomorrow. I do know that we have several questions we would like answered, but we aren't sure if we will get them answered in person or over the phone.

If we make it back in time (cross your fingers for us!!), Charli has her daycare Halloween party at 4:00. She will get dressed up and take her treats for the other kids! I know she doesn't' understand, but we do...and she is so cute when she is having fun playing with the kids at daycare. That place (daycare) is such an amazing place - we have been so blessed to have found them. I think about it - and realize how much God must have had a hand in our finding them to watch our child. We couldn't ask for a better place to take Charli, or better people to help raise and form Charli's life. Tomorrow is going to be fun!

Oh - this weekend our country church is having a celebration and I will be singing Sunday.
I may...or may not have news to post tomorrow night. Feel free to send me an email if you are wondering about anything...I know the wait can be hard on your end too. GOD BLESS everyone, tomorrow is going to be such an amazing day - I can feel it in my bones!

Oh...and PS. Elizabeth, Charli's friend from daycare, cut her hair yesterday and donated it to locks of love! She is awesome, and looks so cute! Her hair is almost identical to the color Charli's hair was before she lost it, so I am SURE that if Charli needed a wig - she would have gotten her hair :-) everyone! I am going to get good news tomorrow, and WHAT is better than that?!

Hugs, kisses and prayers are being sent your way. I have scheduled my cell for 10:30 so I can be in meditation and prayer for the beautiful Charli Ann as she goes in for her tests. Can't wait to see Charli's Halloween costume. I bet she is going to be a princess, or maybe not, since she is a princess every day!! I know she can trick the cancer and make it go away. What a special sweet treat you have in that precious little one.
