First Christmas Event

Goodness! I can't believe how fast time is flying! We went to the county Christmas tree lighting last night. Mollie's Daisy troop led the audience in saying the Pledge of Allegiance. They did a great job and Mollie had a blast! We ran into some friends we hadn't seen in a long time (Hi Doris! Hi Amy!) and with all the Daisies and their families and Hannah and her mom, we had a nice time despite the chilly weather.

Mollie also went to a friend's birthday party earlier in the day. It was a princess tea party- right up her alley! It is fun to see her personality emerge. She is definitely one of the more quiet kids and is very sensitive to people's feelings. She doesn't like to see people be excluded or hurt. I can't help but think that her own experience with cancer has turned her into an even more caring person.

Today our whole family participated in a 5K to raise money for Wagon of Wishes- a campaign to purchase red wagons and toys for MCG Children's Medical Center. The organization sponsoring the wagon purchase was started by friends of ours; their son is a 5 year leukemia survivor. And the run was organized by another friend. It was a small group of people, but it was a lot of fun and they raised $500- enough to purchase 7 or 8 wagons for the hospital!
