Congrats Jim, it’s Sarah’s 2nd birthday!

Jim:  This was one of Jim’s big goals.  To make it to Sarah’s 2nd birthday.  Not only have you made it, Honey, but you are back at work and full of life!

Jim did have a fun birthday weekend.  The party started in Austin on Saturday, then moved to Johnson City and Fredericksburg for the weekend.  It was a fun time with family.  Plus, this was another of Jim’s goals.  (Can you tell he’s goal-oriented?)

This coming Monday, Jim will have a CT scan.  Tuesday, Jim will go in for blood work, get his port flushed and discuss the results of the scan with Dr. DeLeon.  He hasn’t had any chemo since January, so we are eager to see the results.  It has been a nice three months.  He’s going to take Wednesday off, and that’s when I’ll post the next blog.  I’m so glad he’s going to have a series of distractions leading up to Monday.

Beckie:  I can’t believe I was in labor at this time just two years ago…  Well, the partying for Sarah starts today.  Then, we’ve got Friday to get the house ready for the “big” party on Saturday.  That should be a really fun day.  On Sunday, “boocoos” (Jim’s description) of family members will join us for Easter service at our church.  We have many things to celebrate and be thankful for.  Then, we’re all going out to lunch, and after Sarah’s afternoon nap, we’ll have her very first Easter egg hunt!

Sarah:  Happy Birthday, Babydoll!  You have been through a lot this year too.  Thanks for always being such a wonderful little girl.

Note: Below you’ll notice Jim’s “Sarah smiles,” the type reserved for when he’s just with her.  😉
