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.

Christmas Day

Since we came home from the hospital on Christmas Eve, we kept our Christmas Day extremely low key, complete with lots of rest and naps. But we did spend the morning with my parents and opened presents and had breakfast together. It was a nice, mellow morning. We celebrated Christmas with the Westons on New Year's Day and we'll be celebrating with the Hammers on the 9th, after my brother and sis-in-law come into town from Washington. If ever there was a drawn-out holiday, this is it! I'm enjoying all the celebrating though, and taking it slowly has been really nice for me as I continue to heal from the c-section and adjust to life with TWO little girls to care for. Here's a few pics from Christmas morning ... as well as a few others just for fun.

Josie had fun playing with tree decorations. Currently she loves to take things out of whatever is holding them and put them back in ... out, in, out, in, out, in, out, in ... these strings of beads kept her busy for an entire afternoon.

Don't come between me and my yogurt!

Grandma Weston gave Josie this doll as a big sister gift when Ella was born. She took to it immediately and now it goes with her everywhere.

Christmas morning was a learning experience for Josie this year. As it will be for a few more years, I suppose. She certainly enjoyed ripping packages open.

Legos! Not sure who had more fun with these, Josie or Grandpa.

The best Christmas gift we got this year.

Eleanor takes it really personally when you make fun of her extra chin.
