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...

We have had a week of milestones in our family!

Last week we attended they Relay For Life in Lincoln and Charli walked the survivor lap all by herself!! This was her first time doing so, and she was so grown up! Her apperance there caught the attention of the 1011 news station who interviewed us for that evenings news! While I was in Lincoln for work on Wednesday I was showna copy of that days Lincoln Journal Star, which Charil was in as well!! Fun times!

I also took both kids swimming by myself. I was afraid of how this would work but a freind gave me a little trick and we had a great time! Charli wore a lifejacket most of the time and floated around enjoying her freedom! When Harper wore the jacket he laid on his back and was so relaxed he almost fell asleep!!

After swimming we took a trip to the Children's Museum which was a great idea - however having our arrival time line up with the spring game - not such a great idea!!

We had a great weekend!

And...finally the milestone I just reached --> I have officially ran out of room for pictures on this blog! I am trying to get our books printed so I can take old posts off, however that may take awhile! In the meantime I will either have to create a second blog and/or delete posts as I go. If anyone is looking for a part-time job to get these books created...look me up :-)

getting ready to start the lap! she was so brave and the other survivors were so supportive and nice to her!

nice to see her on the other side of the law!

they each wanted to go in opposite directions while we were there, but they found a few common things to enjoy!

Charli played "dog" and Harper played "vet"!

he was not able to get his foot high enough to attempt the boot...but he tried and tried!

BIG tire! I tried to get Harper in the same tire - but he was too interested in the big semi next to it!

they two huge chairs which I love because it makes you feel so tiny! Harper just bailed off the sides when I tried to have them sit together!

harper, the puppy!

Charli was a hippo -- not a puppy! please don't confuse the two or she may get crabby! she just started the "peace" sign, not sure where she picked that up!

fun in the water!

i love this picture!!

doing chores!

they both take their job of feeding the goats very seriously! Harper runs around the fence with his lips puckered up trying to kiss them after they eat!

just like grandpa?! at one point he even had one hand on the throttle and one hand holding the diet pepsi!!!


egg time!

fun (and messy!!) times!

the jewelry (candy) box Chad made for Charli on her "fun" day out in March for her cancerversary. he told her that when she was super good she could look here for treats!

Charli's plate for 2011. She even painted her fingernails orange!

I made a bowl - which has sat empty...not sure what to use it for now that I have it!

Two of my nephews came to the Relay, which made it extra special! I have pictures of them with the kids...great pictures of them with the kids, which I am very sad to not be sharing! I will post them as soon as I have room on the blog for them!! They loved on the kids and I could tell they were proud to be there with Charli -- and had fun playing with Harper! It's fun to see the big boys in my life take care of the little boy in my life! :-)

I love reading your blog and seeing your pictures, I would love to help you get your book going, but I do not have any idea how to start.

It was such a pleasure reading it. I have bookmarked it and I will show it to my friend, she is a huge fan of this subject.
