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...

i love you, you love me

For those of you who knew me growing up...please take a moment to read this and chuckle - Charli is a mini-brenda. God has showered his irony upon me! Charli has started to sing every single thought that pops into her head. A few nights ago her song was something like this "the moon is out, I want a sucker but mom says no, super bear, i love you, you love me" and I think you can see where this is going!! Ahhh, she is me and all I can do is chuckle because I know what my parents went through, and I have a feeling that now is a little too late to say "sorry"!

she was so excited to have him lay in her bed....she LOVES to love on him, I think he is thinking "mom, get me out of here!"

"mom, she is doing it again...get her off!!!"

he was warming up a little here, but still looks a little unsure

and finally...the annoyed look! However, notice how proud 'big sister' is and how nicely she shared her favorite "super bear" with him so easily!!

finally - some alone time to play!!

the truck load of potatoes that my dad (and a few others from our "country" church) picked to donate to our city mission

check out this huge sweet potato!!!!!!

Charli came along to help - thought it would be good for her to help out!

she was a pretty good helper!

and finally...the last of the bunch!

Charli ran in the Humphrey Fun Run Sunday

#1 - she gets her running ability from the Borg side - Grandpa Borg should be so proud!!

Vrrrmmmm - Vrrmmmmmm

Charli saying hello to another little Charli, who was named after her!

showing off the ribbon :-)

run - run - run

in our house "we" start young with this kind of play...and by we, I mean Chad!! (he was being thrown up in the air...sorry about cutting your head off Harper!)
