Our Sweet Sweet Babe is 10 months old tomorrow.

May the angels protect you, trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it's time to go home
May you always have plenty, the glass never empty
And know in your belly, you're never alone

May your tears come from laughing, you find friends worth having
As every year passes, they mean more than gold
May you win and stay humble, smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble, you're never alone

Never alone, never alone
I'll be in every beat of your heart when you face the unknown
Wherever you fly this isn't goodbye
My love will follow you, stay with you, baby, you're never alone

Never Alone - Lady Antebellum w/ Jim Brickman

I am excited to announce that Ry & I are getting married on August 25th.

We are keeping it quaint, simple, small and beautiful. This is something we've wanted to do for a long time and with all of the mountains we've climbed this year it seems fitting to end it with a brand new start, the first day of the rest of our lives. We don't know what the future holds for our family but I guarantee it's got an abundance of blessings in store for us. To have our 2 little girls there to celebrate this huge milestone means the world to us. We love Jillian & Mallory with all our hearts.

And 1 month after our wedding our sweet sweet peanut will be 1! I can't believe I'm already talking about getting stuff ready for her party. When she was 2 months old we were told she had "cancer", and now we're planning some wonderful birthday shenanigans, a birthday we weren't so sure she'd have. But Here we are, planning a birthday party for our sweet sweet babe. It's going to be an open invite birthday, we would like to share this amazing day with all the people that helped us this past year. That cried with us, hugged us, sent us cards, and prayed for our family. Without you guys, I don't think we would have made it over the mountain.

She's our little SUNSHINE and we want to share her with the world! She still has at least 3 years of scans, blood draws, and urine checks before she's deemed cured but we're taking it day by day. We want the world to know who Mallory is, what she fought, and that there are so many children just like her. That are fighting for there lives, who inspire us everyday. We continue to pray that with the Lord's help we find a cure for these beautiful souls. We are very very blessed to have Mallory, to have reached this point, and we couldn't have done it without the Lord watching over us, without all of your prayers, without all of your support. So please feel free to message me on here or add me to facebook if you would like to celebrate this beautiful life with us.

We will be doing a balloon launch on this day as well, so if you cannot join us but want to celebrate please let a balloon fly high on the 23rd for the kids that are fighting or who have gained there angel wings.

She's come a long way from this day.
