In the Clear!

This little pumpkin stayed the night with me last night... and it was so good to see her! As some of you might remember, my niece, Ivy was dealing with a tumour on her kidney this past summer when she was only seven weeks old. I wrote about it in this post.

She spent the last few days in Vancouver doing follow up tests, and everything is normal! She's a healthy happy little baby. I didn't want to let her go this morning. It will be summertime before I see her again and she will be walking. Why can't babies stay babies for much longer?

Just wanted to share the happy update.

Shayne and Carly, it was so good to see you. I love you, and I miss you already. Give Sarai a big hug and a kiss for me. xo

They are a happy little vegetable. I mean, look at them all spilling out of the container like they know they've got to live it up while the going's good. That kind of youthful energy must be good for the body. Baby broccoli sprouts are not my favourite veggie... to me they taste a little like dirt. But I eat them anyway because I know how incredibly full of nutrients these little guys are.

And they are kind of adorable too. Some of them are even shaped like little hearts. That alone has got to do something good to the body, right?
