Jack Turns 3

Jack had a wonderfully blessed birthday! He woke up super happy and excited for the events to come! I made him his favorite breakfast, green pancakes! I left a little later to get the party set up and Jack came later with my Mom (Nama). We had it at this beautiful park under a gazebo. It was perfect for all the little kiddos. Plenty of open space to run around, and we had bubbles and snacks and coloring sheets! He loved opening his presents and of course eating a cupcake (or two)!

Later that evening we had just family over to the house for cake and ice cream and some more presents! My Mom made a magnificent monkey cake that was almost too perfect to cut in to! Jack loved it! He got some great books, some fun bug catching things, CARS stuff, some puzzles, some clothes and a Radio Flyer Slider Trike and helmet! He was pretty excited and wasted no time jumping on!

In Oregon the law is anyone on a bike under the age of 16 must wear a helmet, and I think the perfect time to train them to do this is when they get a trike! That way, it becomes second nature and they don't fight it! Plus, why not do everything you can to protect that little sweet head! :)

All in all it was a fabulous day, despite the fact that I have a nasty cold :( Hoping the babies don't get it!! Enjoy the pictures!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
