3531 Days

3531 days ago, my only sister was diagnosed with cancer.
Brain surgery removed a softball sized tumor.
Lots of treatments, lots more open brain surgeries, and she is still here.
My oldest niece Maia decide to put together a team for Relay for Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Pretty amazing for someone that won't even be able to drive for a couple more years.
We raised money, walked, ate licorice and pizza and walked some more.

This video is mostly so she can remember what life was like when she turned 8.

The big 3-0

Conversation at dinner last night.

Me: Do any of you know what special day it is tomorrow?
#2 excitedly: Yes! it is uncle G G's birthday.
Me: You're right. Is it anybody else's birthday that we know?

blank stares and crickets chirping

Me: Do any of you remember that it's your mother's birthday?

I guess i am not very good at building up for birthdays.
The kids were all disappointed that there would be no singing gorillas with balloons.

At least they remembered Jeremiah's birthday.

Happy 30th Megan
