I scream you scream for CACREAM?!

Summer is almost here!!! So you know what that means! ICE CREAM!!! Or as Gavie calls it CACREAM! I swear every time he says that word I have to giggle!!! It just does not sound right! But none the less it is way to cute! Every night after dinner he asks for some CACREAM. This pic was taken the day before we left California. We had stopped for dinner and he had to have some CACREAM. I just love the look on his face. He was so happy.

I must of been a great Mommy this year!

I never expect anything for Mother's Day although handmade gifts are ALWAYS welcomed :o) .... Well this year with their Poppy's (my Dad) help they got me a new 500GB External Hard drive for my laptop. I feel so lucky to have such WONDERFUL lil men! They can be a handful at times and I want to pull my hair out! But I would never trade them for anything!

These are my guys! I am truly blessed!!!

Kaylie Gunn 1/16/06 -5/13/08

Sadly we have lost yet another of Gavie's Cancer Buddies. Kaylie gained her Angel Wings this morning around 9:30am.

When is this madness going to end!!!! Kaylie is just a month older then Gavie so this hits us hard. She was way to young to have to leave so soon! Our thoughts and prayers go out to her Mommy who has been so strong throughout her journey.

RIP Precious Angel.

A Pair of Shoes ...

A Pair of Shoes

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes.
There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has a child with cancer.

I received this poem from a dear friend of mine named Allie. Her little boy Jeremy is battling a brain tumor. This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read. I thank her for sharing it with me.
