Picture of the Week *Fight On for Family*

My extended family received some tough news lately so I thought it was time to take a little break from the baby countdown and focus on some completely amazing people in our life…  people who I want Beanette to be able to grow up and spend time with so she can see just how lucky she is to be born into a crazy, funny, supportive, AWESOME family!!!

It was Labor Day weekend two years ago that we had a very special family reunion in Buffalo at our house!  My Dad is one of five kids, and from those five kids we’ve grown to a family of about 45 people (what can I say, we are apparently good at procreating).  We don’t get together as often as I wish we did, but when we do spend time together it’s like we’ve never been apart.  We couldn’t get the entire clan together two years ago, but we had representation from Canada, Cali, Michigan, Florida, Ohio and Pa!  Not bad!


The group Q photo! Love, Love, LOVE this family!

We got crafty and made a Q collage… each person had their own square to decorate!

During the recent years our family has been touched deeply by cancer… and I think it’s time to show our stance on this completely stupid disease and focus on making some good memories again.  So, from now on, there are new rules in the family…  Cancer is NOT invited, NOT welcome, and NOT allowed to visit our family. 

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, cancer!

As a family we will Stand Up and Fight this stupid disease! 

Cancer, you clearly don’t know who you are messing with; your party is O-V-E-R!
