My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

a dressed up weekend

This weekend Caleb and I drove to Phoenix for a 30th birthday party of one of his friends. Tammy's birthday is actually on Halloween, and loves dress-up parties. So this one was a costume party. We were loaned King and Queen costumes by friends of ours (thanks Slausons!). We were, of course, the handsomest couple there. But there were a few other clever entries. See the pictures below for the costume parade.

This is Jon and Tammy (the birthday girl) and their daughter Malena. We were all a little worried about Jon's short skirt, but thankfully there were no embarrassing Peter Pan moments.

This is Tammy's brother Kevin, his wife Crystal and their son Brody. Kevin won the Best Costume prize of the night ... perhaps merely for the guts to show off that midriff all night.

This is Andy and Mary. Andy was a Jr. High Basketball star (obviously) while Mary was the human whoopy cushion, complete with sound effects!

This is Rick and Helen, Tammy's parents. They were our hosts for the weekend, and totally got into the costumes!

This is Mark and Lisa ... er, Magnum P.I. and a classy woman from the 20s.

This is the Superhero family ... the Fryes! Travis as Batman, Jayden as Robin, Carrie as Batgirl, holding Gavyn, Bat BABY!

And presiding over this entire kingdom was the Burger King, and his Dairy Queen.

The following are pictures of two of the cutest girls of the weekend. They just needed to be added to the menagerie of pictures here.

This is Ashya Hupp ... the miracle baby. You might remember last year us asking for prayer for the baby born 3 months early to good friends of Caleb's, Paul and Deb? This is Ashya now, a healthy 14-month old! (Unfortunately, I missed getting pictures of Paul and Deb in costume ... they were awesome pirates, and Ashya was a monkey!)

This is Malena Mathis ... Jon and Tammy's little girl. They're now pregnant with their second, another girl, due in March.

King Caleb doesn't look too happy or was he trying to look regal? I think Jon, Tammy and Malena should have won for the best family group! Jon was very brave!
