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...

free falling!

Charli was full of funny and important things to say this weekend!

Chad took her on a drive the other day, because she wanted to see something "neat". He took her to see Lake North...she is certain it is the ocean, and is in total awe of it!

While saying prayers the other night I gave her free reign on what to say, with no hints or cues. She said "Dear God, thank you for taking my cancer away. Thank you for my angels, mommy and daddy, who took care of me when I was sick." and later she added "Thank you for daddy who washes my blanket, it keeps me warm"!

Her new phrase is "I'm serious"

She has learned what 9-1-1 is for and is now practicing "what do you do if a stranger offers you something" and "what do you do if a stranger wants to give you a ride". At this moment she is quizzing Harper on what to do too!

I am starting to see, day by day, how fast she is growing up and I am not sure how that happened! When did she get old enough to put her own shoes on, play by her self, eat all her food, ride a bike, and get dressed without my input or help? Her Independence is a scary thing...this world is a scary place when you love someone so innocent.

Enjoy the pictures!

Charli was running across the room to jump into her beanbag! So much fun! Her faces were priceless!

I bet she asked me to take 50 pictures while she did this! She was having so much fun, and Harper enjoyed taking in every second of it! He even tried his best at crawling as fast as he could to flop on it too!!



Harper was able to enjoy some alone play time for a bit this weekend...and he eats it up! He is so very busy...probably busier than Charli has ever been, including now! It is impossible to get a picture of him, because he is always on the go!

sharing some sucker time! Harper got green to match his shirt and Charli got blue to match hers!

so pretty!

Harper was enjoying the sucker, and Charli was enjoying teaching him how to eat it.


one day they will look back and think...the good days!

Oh boy...Harper with a sucker? I wonder how soon until he will be pointing to grandma's rooster cookie jar for one :o) I'm sure Charli will teach him soon enough! Great pictures, Brenda...they are really growing up quickly! XXXXOOOOPPPP

P.S. The prayer was absolutely precious...nothing more profound than a child talking to God.
