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...

here's to you 2011!

We have really enjoyed the extra days at home. It feels like we have been home forever! Charli got the stomach flu early this week and was home for two days. Coming off of a long weekend, and going into another long weekend...the week went very quickly! She is feeling much better now! Major BIG thanks to Linda for getting Harper to daycare Wednesday, you are a lifesaver!

We got a lot done this weekend, but always wish we could do one or two more things! When I took the tree down earlier this week Charli informed me "but mom, I am still celebrating Christmas!" She wasn't sure why we would ever think about taking the tree down!

big vs. little!
The top bite is Charli's bite, the bottom of the cookie is Harper's bite after taking it from Charli!

they have a little village set up of all their cars, trucks, semis, tractors, people, etc. It is a nice little get away for them to play and think they are hiding!

Charli was drawing a person and wanted to cut it out so we could try to make it into a paper airplane. We were not successful!!

the pictures got out of order here, sorry! This is the after effect of the picture below...

they love to be spun around, Charli will BEG for it! She doesn't think it is a "good one" unless she can't stand up when she is done! What a life :-)

My New Years resolution is to get better at sending "fun" mail, so keep an eye out! I got a few pieces out over the weekend, so I guess I am doing 'so far, so good'! I don't have to go back to work until Tuesday (our holiday is Monday, yay us!), so I have a few more hours of trying to be productive around here! Hope you start 2011 out on a good note!

Brenda and family,
I have followed your blog since I first heard of Charli's journey. I enjoy coming here each week for a glimpse of your life & love the spin on life you give me! I cannot wait to watch your family grow in 2011. I know it will be amazing for you, because that is what you expect and that is what you deserve.

Thanks for being you, and letting us take part.
