Since Lilly just rang the bell, and Emery's 4th Birthday was fast approaching, we decided it was time to CELEBRATE!!! What an exciting day!
It wouldn't be a party without the mascots. So glad they came and partied with us. And Felix lived up to his deal and wore a DRESS for Emery! She is still very nervous around the mascots, but I promise when they aren't around, she talks about them constantly!!
Lilly sure loves Felix!
We had snow cones and popcorn and cotton candy and treats galore! Thank you to all who brought goodies to share! YUM!!
It was a FUN party! Whenever there's water balloons involved, it has to be fun, right? There were a lot of soaked kids.... and mascots too!
Willy snuck up on Lilly and dumped a bucket of water on her head! OOh cold!
Love you Willy!
We love our friends!
Who's faster than a Wolverine??
Lilly got a special bracelet from the mascots that says "She believed she could so she did!" I love that! Very fitting for my brave Lilly!
So grateful for the Mascot Miracles Foundation. They have brought many many smiles to our family the past two and a half years. Thank you is not enough.
Lilly has a special relationship with Michalla's brother Logan. Thank you for coming. It meant the world to her.
Nurses, Princesses, Cancer Moms.... What more could you ask for?
These pictures melt my heart... This is one of our cancer friends Hazel. I loved watching her from afar as she watched a video of Lilly ringing the bell!!! You'll get there Hazel! Next year it'll be YOUR TURN!
The amazing cakes we received from Icing Smiles. It's an awesome foundation that makes cakes for kids with serious illnesses and their siblings. Emery wanted a Jessie and Bullseye cake, and Lilly wanted an elephant cake - because elephants don't get cancer!
The bakers who provided our cakes! Heather from HeavenLee Kreations made Emery's cake, and Melissa Randolph made Lilly's. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I love my family so much! We have learned and grown so much in the past two and a half years. I wouldn't wish cancer upon anybody, but the people we have met along the way and the experiences we've had have changed our lives for the better.
Choose to be Happy! That's what we did!
