To Close it Off

2gb less photos in 2011 than in 2010.

I know why, but it is still a surprise.  Some whole months skipped without a single photo taken, though admittedly there were months this year in which it was hard to find the joy.  Still we had some happy times, both with and without Dad, but I for one cannot wait to see the end of 2011.  I was a bit loathe to use the first song in case I jinxed us.  What if the Dog Days are not over?  Surely they have to be, it seems like year after year has been getting harder, but I feel things are definitely on the upswing!

Have an awesome New Year everyone!

Love from Us xx

Nine Months

Two weeks ago the worst two weeks of my life began.  Actually they began nine months ago when Dad came home from work early one day.  Really early.  He walked into the house  and said “I might have cancer”.  That was the first time we cried.  We haven’t stopped crying yet.

Dad did what he needed to do.  He fought the whole damn nine months.  He refused to ever consider even for a second that this was a battle he couldn’t win.  He looked to the future, he tried whatever options were available to him and he was the husband and father we knew and loved right to the end.

To the bestest Dad in the world, you are my hero xxxx
