In April, 2010, when Andrew was 2 1/2, a tumor was discovered behind his eye. The tumor was removed, but it was found to be an aggressive cancer. He endured seven months of chemo and six weeks radiation. In December of 2010, the day after his last treatment, he was rushed to the ER with an almost fatal bacterial infection. He survived.

He is now seven-years-old!! I don't visit here much, because during the ordeal, this is where I dumped everything--my rage, my fear, my sadness, my ugly, my hope, my everything. But I want all of you who supported and prayed for us to hear his updates. You helped me survive, and I am deeply thankful. Every once in awhile, I will check in to let you know how he's doing. Please continue to pray that cancer will never return to his body. Thank you.

Adventures in Egg-Decorating (and I have a new camera!!)

I have a new camera!  Hooray!
I am very excited.

Here are some of my very first shots.
Very colorful Easter shots.

The boys couldn't wait to get started. 
I believe their fingers were dyed before the eggs.

We had a green mishap along the way...

This is where my two-year-old spent his time. 

And while we were dying eggs, a package came in the mail from Grandma.
It was full of chocolate, gum, and candy.

Had to make a Thank You call.

And finally, after ten purple fingers and a green floor, we had 12 pretty, colorful Easter eggs.

Happy Easter Weekend!

  1. Very nice and messy. =)

    What kind of camera did you get?

  2. What fun! Dying Easter eggs used to give me a heart attack. I'd make each child take turns and send the rest out of the room. I just couldn't handle it.

    Congrats on the new camera! Have fun with it.

  3. Love your pictures. What's egg dying without a few green accidents and some green thumbs and fingers?

    Come on over for some mom inspiration and encouragement.

  4. What a fun day! Congrats on a new camera, how exciting!

  5. Aaaw, so cute :-) I love all the pictures! And what lovely, masterful eggs you ended up with :-)
