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.

Happy Birthday Burke and Conrad!!

(These boys are our twin nephews, and they turn 2 today! Here are a few pictures from the celebration on Sunday.)

You gotta love it when the birthday presents are twice as big as you are. This is Burke, a true Angels fan, waiting to open his first present.

Here's Conrad pulling out a giant stuffed monkey. In Burke's big bag was a giant stuffed penguin. Both given by Uncle Andrew.

Conrad and Burke. Behind them is the favorite toy of the day ... the 80th anniversary edition of Mr. Potato Head.

Burke is just sure that's where the glasses go.

And so Conrad takes his brother's advice and shares in the wearing of the glasses as a chin strap.

Of course, its not true fun if Uncle Caleb doesn't get involved ....

Christie made a Winnie the Pooh cake for each of them.

Conrad loved the candle on his cake, a big number 2. He kept trying to touch it, so it eventually got blown out for him.

Burke enjoys dessert the way the rest of us wish it was proper to enjoy dessert.

He's actually getting better ... this time the frosting didn't end up in his hair.

Conrad is a bit more composed, content to finger all the icing off his cupcake ...

... and lick his fingers.

Happy Birthday Boys!
