Halloween Fun For “Dorothy”

Gwendolyn has had an absolute amazing Halloween. She was so darn excited about everything. She quivered with thrill reading about all things Halloween, every special Halloween thing at Preschool was off the charts in her mind, and we both loved using the fun crafts she made there to decorate our front porch. And at home […]

Pumpkin Patch and A New Four Year Old Attitude

Woowee! We have been going, going, going lately. And when we aren’t going out with Miss G we have been working hard on some new changes/updates/projects with theGSF. We are pretty darn excited, but it means I haven’t been blogging about my #1 girl as much as I usually do. There has been lots of […]

Birthday Part 3: The Actual Day and Lion King 3D

This is the last birthday celebration post. We had so much fun that it was just too much to cram into one post; hope you aren’t tired of the big 4 hullabaloo. To be honest it has been nice for us to reflect on this milestone and truly appreciate all the good things for Gwendolyn […]

Birthday Part 2: A Cowgirl Party

Yee-haw! Gwendolyn decided she wanted to have a cowgirl birthday party to celebrate turning F.O.U.R.

With everything that happened with Gwendolyn’s health this summer, we didn’t even start getting organized until a few weeks before the shindig. But […]

My dearest darling Gwendolyn, Today you are four years old and I am so proud of you. At four you are such an incredible little girl — so certain of yourself, so eager to live life to its fullest, so patient when the world isn’t always ready for you. And I am so proud of […]

Health Net Health Insurance Premium Increase: 18% this year, 136% over last 4

Health Net — our health insurance provider — is at it again this year raising our health insurance premiums at ridiculous rates. This year it was a clean 18%. Yup, 18%. That number is crazy on its own, but what % do you think Health Net has raised our health insurance premiums over the last […]

First Day of Preschool! Miss G is a Big Pre-K Girl!

Yep, you read that correctly. Miss G had her first day of preschool yesterday and it was AMAZING! Absolutely positively a very, very “Good Thing for Gwendolyn!” The second we asked Gwendolyn if she would like to start going to school again, her little fingers tapped so fast and her eyes rolled up quickly to […]

Super Miss G Is Home Rocking New Super Powers

Super Miss G is doing great. Really great. As in almost fully back to normal. The blood transfusion was a success and we were sent home after just one day with Gwendolyn’s lips more ruby than we have seen in weeks. I’m so sorry we are just posting now. I know that worries people. To […]
