Lately...

I have been enjoying life with my beautiful family. Absolutely love it here,its everything i have dreamed of! Kids are loving it too! Landons 3rd birthday and Logans 6th is coming up, they both are so excited! Logan wants a white cake,with vanilla frosting,with the writing on his cake to be yellow. Landon wants a chocolate cake.

The school year is about over,it has literally flown by,i cannot believe it. Logan is growing up so fast.
I cherish every moment I get with him,and Landon! Being a mom is one of the greatest jobs in the world.


Thankful

I am very grateful. We've had a son battle cancer, and survive. We've helped him get to where he is today which he remembers the trauma,but doesnt understand what was wrong with him or why he went through what he did. But I held it together when i really wasnt together,and hopefully some day he will understand. I have my best friend, my husband, who has been there for me,been there to help me through,been my shoulder to cry on,i am so very lucky to have him in my life. Someone who cares about our family and I,someone who works hard for our family,and who makes me happy. Thats the most important right there, being happy !  When you enjoy the little things,it is so easy to be happy in life. The little things is what its about !  We have lived in our new house for a little over 8 months and we love it. We have such a great school district,and community,my cup runneth over. Found out Logan will have to have one more brain scan in 6 months,then he will have only one brain scan yearly,for that i am so overwhelmed with joy. Logans coming up on his 4 yrs mark since he got diagnosed with his cancer and they said if he made it 5 yrs without it coming back,then he will be considered that of a child that has never had it in the first place. I am just beyond happy we have made it this far.  Im so thankful and take pride that i was able to be there every step of the way,I love you son!

Its already been 2 yrs...

It has already been two years since our son Logan finished his last Chemotherapy treatment at
 
Childrens Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. I am beyond blessed to say he is still doing well today.
 
Logan completed a year and a half of Chemotherapy and has made it two years without the Brain
 
 cancer coming back. The statistics are if he makes it five years without the cancer coming back then
 
 hes considered like he never had it. Logan has come so very far these last two years, I am just so
 
 very proud of him. He is doing very good in Kindergarten, and I love the school he goes too.
 
Congratulations buddy, I am so happy you are my son, and my cancer survivor.
 
 
Here's some pictures taken over the years of Logan

My Boys are My Everything

Logan started Kindergarten in Riley about a week and a half ago. He is really liking school. I am so impressed with the Riley school district, I am so glad we moved here, I couldn't be happier. The teachers here are just remarkable, and you can see they really care about all the kids they teach.

Logan has been cancer free for 2 years now, so he only has to go and get a brain scan once every 6 months. I  am so proud of how far Logan has come since that day of his brain surgery. He has matured and learned so much. I am one of his biggest teachers, I work with him daily to teach him new skills. I have been very lucky to be able to stay at home with him for his first 5 years, he will be going all day in Kindergarten this year. I will miss him greatly, but I know it is time to let him go to school to learn new things, and meet new people. I know he will do great.



Landon is staying home with me this year, he is not quite 2 1/2 yet. I will be working with him when Logan is in school to try and get him ready for preschool next year. There is so much they need to know nowadays its insane, a lot more then when I was young. Landon is talking a lot, and doing a lot of independent things, he doesn't like to hold my hand when we walk, he likes to guide himself,  yeah I know I'm pretty sad, he's growing up, he is a toddler now.



Logan and Landon have a wonderful bond, I am so happy that they look up to each other so much, they play together so well.  I love to see them play and interact together, it makes me so happy inside. The boys love to color, and paint, and read books. Being a mom is really one of the best jobs ever. I am forever thankful for my beautiful children.

 
 




My husband is so loving, and caring. We have been together for 6 years. Our relationship gets stronger and better everyday. I am so thankful for his humbleness. He would do anything for our family and myself. He really just wants me to be happy, and I am.

Being Happy

So my husband and I recently bought a house, and we absolutely love it. Its the size we wanted, and its a Ranch Style house. It has a basement too, which we definitely decided the house we bought had to have one.  We have always wanted to live in Riley, and have our kids grow up here. We have been talking about moving here for 6 yrs! Well I'm so glad we finally did, I love it here in Riley. Logan will be in Kindergarten, and our kids will get to grow up in a smaller town.

I always strive to do better each day, to try and eat better, communicate better, strive to improve my marriage, strive to be a better mom, and spend lots of time with my kids, and to make the time to do things for myself. Most importantly I try and find positive in each situation. But I try to improve myself everyday. My family means the world to me.

 My husband is my world, we have gotten thru a lot of hard times with our son, and worked together to make our marriage stronger than ever. My husband is a very supportive man, he is very open. In order to stay positive, u need to surround yourself with people who love and care about you.

 I have the most awesome sister-in -law, she moved closer to us a couple months ago. She has made me realize a lot of things. She has a girl that's my youngest' age. They have a wonderful time together. When her and I are together, we are so happy. We can relate a lot, and laugh together like it's not a thing.

Logan is 5 yrs!

Logan you are 5 yrs old, I cannot believe it. You are one of  the strongest boys I know. You were diagnosed with Brain cancer at 1yr and 10 months.You had brain surgery and you completed 1 1/2 years of Chemotherapy, and are now 1 1/2 yrs in remission. It was harder than words I can write to seem strong when you were going through your cancer, but I'm writing this because it will always be a big part of who you are. You like to watch cartoons, and play with your younger brother. You are a picky eater, just like your dad! You love to go to school and play outside. You are very proud of what you know.




 I will be here for you for the rest of your life and I want you to know that. You are capable of the same things as any other child. You have been in speech therapy for 2 yrs and have come a long ways, I am so proud of you. You will be in Kindergarten next yr, I cannot say how happy I am for you.  I love you so much!
You and I at your last Brain Scan :)


You still go up to Kansas City, to Children's Mercy Hospital every 3 months for a Brain scan, to make sure your Brain cancer has not come back, and Dad and I go up with you. I cant wait to see what life brings for you. You are loving, caring, and sweet, and you have a beautiful smile, my heart melts every time I see it, and I'm just so very thankful you are here with us, I love you!
