FAMILY
It has been a year in March since my Nephew was diagnosed with a very fast growing cancer and had to have a brain tumor removed. He is still coming down from Prescott every week to get radiation. I got to see Jonathan a couple days after Christmas. It is always amazing to see him. Look at his countenance and smile. It really puts life into perspective to think of this 14 year old boy going through what he has been through, so much pain that no one on Earth could understand,countless hours of radiation and Chemotherapy, and still have the cutest sense of humor and love for life. He is truly an inspiration not just to me but to many, many, people. I love you Jonathan, you are a Hero! Roxcy(7 months) and Jonathan (14)

Cousins at the Dinosaur museum. Carson, Jaden, Malloy, and McKay. We have been to this place more than I would like to admit, and more than I would ever like to go. My kids seriously love it here and act like it is the first time they have been here every time we go.

This Christmas was one family party after another. Juliette was down for a week and we went to movies, had spend the nights, and went out to eat almost every day. Here is me, Juliette, Cherisse, and Amber (Our adopted sister) at Oregano's our favorite place on Earth. I feel so blessed to have such amazing, talented, loving sisters. We can laugh so hard that we pee, and cry so hard until there are no more tears. We know every shortcoming and weakness about each other and still love each other anyway. Thank goodness for my sisters.

I can't believe it has been a year. What a trooper...he really does have a peaceful look about him.

And, not offended at all or anything, but seeing that I am sisterless and sister-in-lawless, please feel free to call on me when you need sister moments...I would be happy to oblige!

Love your haircut!

I didn't realize all of those posts were under one title, so here I am again! Your nephew is a doll! People like him are a great reminder of what is truly important in life! We'll keep him in our prayers.
