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...

quick update

Sorry for the lapse in posting - seems like we have other things occupying our time as summer is going on!! Charli likes to spend every waking second outside, and we have been busy doing things for the Relay...which is coming up NEXT Friday!!! (hint-hint-hint...love to see you there!!)

I think Chad had a good father's day, he took the family on a short 4-wheeler ride and I got to take her on a ride in the skid-loader :)

Watch for upcoming details about the Relay!! TIP: THE RELAY IS NOT JUST FOR CANCER SURVIVORS!! We want all friends, family, supporters, strangers, and soon to be friends there to see all the amazing people!! There is no cost to come, so you are out nothing but your time, and I PROMISE you won't regret the time you spend there, you will leave inspired...and who couldn't use some inspiration :-)

Daddy loved to see mommy and Charli in the CAT with tracks :-)

We were at Wal-Mart last night and there was a man walking in front of us with a Charli Shirt! I was pretty excited to see it and think of your family! Have a great day!

I have to agree with Jen (although I didn't know Amanda when she was little) but I think the picture of her in pigtails by the door REALLY looks like pictures I have seen of her Aunt Amanda when she was little. Charli will probably grow up as beautiful as her, too. How could she go wrong with such a beautiful mommy and handsome daddy, too :o)
