Yesterday we celebrated our granddaughter’s third birthday, time certainly does go by quickly, at least for me! Here are some fun facts my daughter wrote about her on the family blog. A little peak into our precious little girl.
- She is a chatterbox, basically talking all day long. She also likes to make sure that you are hanging on her every word, by repeating herself until you acknowledge EVERYTHING that she’s said.
- She is a constant ball of energy.
- Her favorite color is pink.
- She loves to sing and dance.
- When she dances or plays any kind of musical instrument she closes her eyes and sways from side to side, so we affectionately call her “Ray”.
- Her favorite restaurant is Moe’s.
- She loves Dora and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
- She has a memory like an elephant…I am constantly amazed at the little details she remembers.
- She LOVES her Daddy and tells everyone that she’s Daddy’s girl.
- She has strong opinions and isn’t afraid to tell you what she wants.
- She loves her little brother and always wants to know where he is and what he’s doing.
- Although she had a traumatic start, she is a daily reminder of God’s goodness.
- We love her to pieces!

Today is a local dog walk, Paws for a Cure, the walk raises money for Cure Search, the world’s largest childhood cancer research organization which brings together the Children’s Oncology Group and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation. This is a personal fund raiser for me organized in my area by my dear friends Sharon and Rob whose oldest daughter Sarah died of cancer 5 years ago at the age of 12 after battling the disease for 7 years. CureSearch is a relatively new organization providing assistance and information for parents. When Sarha was sick there was a great deal of information on the web about cancer, but children’s cancer is different than adult so in order to find to information about a child’s particular type was harder to find. Sarah was a blessing to all whose lives she touched, we love you Sarah. You can see a picture of Sarah here, at Alex’s Lemonade Stand website, Sarah and Alex knew one another, they and their familes were connected through CHOP, Sharon and Rob are active with Alex’s Lemonade Stand as well. If you care to make a donation to help fight childhood cancer.
