Welcome Home Paola!

Yesterday was a magical, miraculous day. My sweet friend Paola was able to come home from the hospital. She has been diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer that is found mostly in young children and it shows absolutely no warning signs until it has bloomed. She has had one round of chemo and a blood transfusion. Her grandparents traveled from Mexico and family has traveled from California to help this family through a difficult time.
I cannot look at this picture of my sweet friend coming home without getting emotional. I love her so much.

Here is Paola's father driving home with Paola and her mom in the van. I can't imagine the feeling he is going through bringing his only daughter home.

Here are some of Paola's cousins and brothers waiting so patiently for their family to arrive. These funny little boys had drawn tattoo hearts all over the body to show Paola their love.

Earlier in the day I had told Cotton and Tristan that Paola's cousin had let Paola shave her head because Paola's hair is starting to fall out. Cotton immediately said he wanted to shave his head to support Paola and Tristan loved the idea.

We had a sweet time together doing this. My heart is full when I look at my sons' shiny heads. I am so grateful for them. Paola has a long road ahead of her and she will be in our families prayers. Love you Paola.

Excited for convention!

I will be attending Scentsy's INTENSITY convention in Denver Colorado soon and I can't wait. We have a team spirit day and I have made these straw hats for my team members to wear and I found some awesome KAZOOS at Broadbent's for noise makers. I have a great Scentsy team and I am excited to see consultants that I have not seen since convention last August.

Purple Turtle

When I was very young my Nanny and Papa would drive from American Fork to Pleasant Grove to the Purple Turtle to take us for an ice cream cone. Sometimes we would have Sherbet and sometimes ice cream. I remember the cones being so big.
We went for a 'cone' last night and I ordered a large one. Holy cow, I was almost embarrassed when the gal brought my cone to me because I am accustomed to the wimpy cones that every other establishment serves. I had no problem eating it and now I will forever be loyal to the Purple Turtle for a 'cone'. Love you Mr. Turtle.

Summer Night

Tonight I spotted the first blooming Shasta daisy of the season in my yard and had to share it with you.
While I was taking pictures in the yard I spied Huck the cat drinking from the bird bath by my front door, what a character. I wonder if it tastes like bird broth?

I decorated my $15 bike that I purchased from my cousin Trenton's yard sale left overs. I have wanted a vintage bike for many years and I finally found one. My favorite part of this bike is the reflector on the back fender. Isn't it sweet? Mike and I went for a bike ride before I started decorating my sweet ride for Independence day and this bike is a keeper.

Do you remember being a little kid and decorating your bike with crepe paper for the children's parade? To make this bike complete I just need a clothes pin to attach a card to the spokes so everyone will hear me coming! Have a wonderful 4th.
