MRI on Tuesday

Things are going well around here for us. We are enjoying a little bit cooler weather and fun Halloween activities. Jaylie has her MRI scheduled for Tuesday morning. I can't believe 3 months has gone by already. It seems like yesterday that I was writing a similar post about 3 months already going by (that was 3 months ago!). This will be her 9 month post treatment scan. Please keep her in your prayers that the scan will show no cancer in Jaylie's little brain and that the cancer will never come back. We are getting more and more nervous by the day, but feel at peace at the same time. Heavenly Father always gives blessings in times of need. We are scheduled for our appointment to get the results a week later. Waiting a week is torture, so I am going to try and call and get the results. I will probably update when we have the actual appointment a week later though.

Jaylie and Breklyn were in the primary program at church today. They sang songs and Jaylie gave a talk. It was so fun watching them up there, they were so cute. Jaylie did amazing on her talk and was not even nervous. There was probably 200ish people there and she got right up and gave a 2 minute talk into the microphone in front of them all. I was so nervous for her, but she seemed just fine. We were so proud of her. She talked about how Jesus Christ's example helps her to make good choices. Kip and I were crying when she was done, just thinking of all she has been through and how amazing she is to us. We are so proud of her and her sweet little spirit. She continues to love school and is so excited to go everyday.

Please pray for Jayile and the other cancer warriors, there are so many and they really need prayers. 

Here is a picture of Jaylie from a week ago, all dressed up as princess Ariel :)

Breklyn is 4 now!

My little Breklyn is 4 now! I really wish I could stop time! Breklyn has been looking forward to a party for a long time and changed her mind about the type of party she wanted a ton of times, but ended up choosing a Tangled party and dressing up as Rapunzel. All the little girls that came dressed up as princesses. They had lunch, played games, did a pinata, did a lantern release (with balloons) had cupcakes and opened presents. It was a lot of fun!

Fun things about Breklyn:
is my best eater and loves most fruits and vegetables
is tender hearted
is so sweet to her little brother
loves and looks up to Jaylie so much
loves all things girlie
loves pink and purple
loves to cuddle and be held
loves her Papa and guys in general
loves playing with friends and having playdates
loves gymnastics and dance
loves puzzles and painting
loves taking walks
loves when Jaylie gets home from school
loves preschool

 We were looking online at ideas for her party and she saw this and loved it. I think it turned out pretty good, thanks to help from my mom!

 Dancing to Tangled music

 Love this picture of the girls laughing!

 They played pin the frying pan on Flynn Rider

 Decorating their lanterns

 This kid is so funny and crazy!

 She was very specific about the food she wanted :) She wanted pink lemonade, peanut butter and honey sandwich, strawberries, apples, grapes, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots.

 My girls :)


 Breklyn wanted to release lanterns into the sky like on Tangled, but we opted for balloons instead, and she had to have pink ones :)

Breklyn goes to preschool & Random Pics

I try to keep up with Jaylie updates but its hard to find time for everything else! I have lots of other pictures of the kids and fun things we did that I want to blog, its just hard to find time.  Here are a few pictures from the last couple months. I am going to start just doing Jaylie updates on this blog and doing a private family one for everything else. 

Breklyn started preschool for the first time! She was sooo excited to go to school and have a backpack just like Jaylie! She loves it and loves having 4 other girls and 1 boy to be with twice a week! This girl loves friends and play dates. Every day she wants to play with friends. She said the other day as we walked past some flowers in the store, that she wanted to buy some for Cassie and Abigail, two of her good friends :) She's a sweetie!

More Cancer Awareness picures

Crew seeing the dentist (daddy!)  He did way better than I though he would!

Jaylie lost her first top front tooth! The permanent one is already coming in a lot!

My precious girl who loves doing fun poses for the camera. I took this before school one day :) I really can't get enough of this girl. I miss her when she is gone to school all day. 

Breklyn loves my shoes! She puts them on and thinks she is the most beautiful girl in the world! Love her poses too!

Jaylie and Shelly. Shelly got her a jewerly kit and scrapbook kit after her good MRI results. She always gets Jaylie something after her results and Jaylie loves it! Shelly is so awesome!

Jaylie wearing her necklaces and showing us the scrapbook from Shelly. She is wearing a headband Shelly got her at the MRI before this one :)

 Kip had a birthday!! We celebrated his birthday for 2 days by going out to eat and giving him a bunch of presents throughout the 2 days. It was fun and the kids loved surprising all the time!
