March 30th brought a big Emmie Anniversary. It was a year ago March 30th that Emmie had her halo removed. We celebrated with our traditional cookie cake! It’s still so amazing to look back and see how far God has brought her in her NF journey already.
April 27th brought another anniversary. It’s been two years since Emmie had her first ever surgery (and the first surgery for any of our kids). I can’t believe it’s been two years since our NF journey became so much more than a mild case. But, we are so grateful that it has been two years watching her grow and get stronger as each day passes.
Once again…a cookie cake (that I whistfully changed from a three to a two).
We’re gearing up for our second annual NF Walk. And that means it’s time to fund raise for Children’s Tumor Foundation and research to end Neurofibromatosis.
I bring to you Emmie’s NF Walk 2017 Fundraiser.
We’re selling them for $10 each (plus shipping if needed) and will run the sale until June 30th. So, who is ready to show support for our pigtailed super hero?

As Facebook is wont to do, an ad appeared in January that grabbed my attention. I totally succumbed to the click bait and fell in love. With my new found fondness, I created a LoveBook for Mark for Valentine’s Day. It was totally fun, unique, and completely us. Each page is a different reason I love Mark. Complete with my unruly and curly, frizzy hair and Mark’s beard. If you have a loved one who is difficult to buy for, this is just the thing! Mark loved it, by the way. Emmie pregnant with a ball. Funny as it is, this was right before we found out I was pregnant. She cracked me up walking around with this ball under her shirt. Born a fighter and cute! Getting ready for a night at the theater. Our local college put on Camelot and four of the nine wanted to go see it. They all enjoyed it and only Malachi slept through the second half. All kinds of cute. Static Slide Hair times 3.
I took four of the kids to see Winter Jam this year. They occupied themselves in line by drawing in the sand. Everyone enjoyed it but Silas fell asleep towards the end. Speaking of falling asleep. She is precious when she crashes on me. Zoe won the t-shirt design contest for her local AHG. They’ll be modifying it to work on an actual shirt but I thought she did an amazing job. Two cute kiddos reading books. Note Emmie’s crossed leg to hold up her book!
This is what my house looks like when we come home from the library. They act like they don’t have two weeks to read all their books.
Emmie rocking her new outfit made by moi! Mark took Zoe, Ace, and four of Zoe’s friends to cash in on her birthday gift….a trip to Mastermind Escape Games. They had a blast and escaped with five minutes to spare.
