I want to start out by posting these pictures that were from the end of the day. But i felt they were so important. You can not tell by this picture, but my mother was very exhausted and overwhelmed. It was a long day for her physically and emotionally. But I'm round to say that she still looked as beautiful as ever, and you could not tell that she was tired. And I'm ever so proud to have a mother like her, and to be her daughter. This leg of the Susan G Komen had more than 6,600 participates and around 500 breast cancer survivors. The community raised $372,500, and all that money will stay in Central Valley helping women like my mother. I'm so happy that my mother was apart of this, and i hope every year following we still attend one of these in our area. I think that my mom needed this day. It is so important for women to know that they are not alone, and that there are others just like them. All 500 of these women my have a different breast cancer story, but they all have one thing in common they are survivors. And each of them are fighting for the same thing a cure....
The Crew: I'm so happy to say that we had a very memorable day. I'm so thankful that my Mother and Father In-Law "Lynn & Mark", where there with us to make this day the best we could for my mother. I think that i can speak for everyone and say, that we were so impress by the volunteers and the committee of people that put on this event. They made it a special day for everyone involved. Someone recently asked me, if my mother has a support group to attend. I told them of all of her friends, and how each of them bring something different to my mother's life. I guess i should have said her support group goes to her. Lynn has been a great friend to my mother for many years. And a even better friend to her since we have all learn she was diagnosed. But i guess we should just say family, 15 years is a enough time to call each other family. It is nice to know that my mom has friends and family that care so much about her. It is reassuring to know that she is being taken care of when i can not be there. So a huge thanks goes to many..
The 1 walk.... I was wondering before we even left how my mom would do? Even though in the back of my mind, i knew she would finish and do great. She had all of us cheering her on. Before the walk start, my mother and i went to the car. She has told me that it was not very far. I did not want to tell her that she was wrong. "I know mom you will be reading this, but i figured you would figure it out, and i know you don't like me to tell you what to do..." anyways it was a long walk, she was literally needing a break. So we stretched out the blanket, and she relaxed until it was time for the walk. I'm happy to report that we walked through the pink balloons as a family..

Last year we went came to the Bear Creek pumpkin patch and we really enjoyed it. This year now that we live in Madera, we looked for one in the Fresno Area, but we did not see anything that we like. So we decided to head back to this one out in Planada. It is small, but everyone is super friendly and they have a Corn Maze that is small enough for Christopher to enjoy. We were not sure, what to expect this year with Chris. Since he is a year older and all. But it was quite a morning. As long as we stay in the area, this will be our yearly pumpkin patch trip. Luckily we went during Jaime's Birthday weekend.
This year the Corn Maze was a little wet. We are guessing from the rain the previous week we had. And we are guess that the corn was down, due to the wind.
Christopher was thankful to get his wagon back, and get to the pumpkins. We told him he could pick out 2 big one for the family and then one little one to call his own.
After we picked the 3 out, Christopher started throwing the rest. There was a big hill down the back side of the barn, Chris thought it would be fun to roll them down. Luckily they did not make any more
Christopher just loves Mr Potato Head, ever since his teacher brings them over. When we were at Costco with Grandma Ramirez we seen the Potato Family set and she bought it for him. He loves to get out the Mom, Dad, and just one of the kids. He gets them just like he wants them, and then pretends they are mom, dad, and Chris. It is just hilarious to watch them role with them. It is so funny watching him put all the body parts on. Sometimes daddy gets the pink lips, and he is not that happy. But most of the time they look like this. This night Chris wanted mommy eyes, and he gave me 2 noses. But it is so much fun. He also wants me and Jaime to play with them, and then he asked us for hugs. Anyways just wanted to share. Me and Jaime get a huge kick out of it.

In this picture Christopher wanted to put a bandanna on like my mom. They were looking in the mirror, and Chris was laughing that he looked like his grandma.
Thanks mom for letting me take at least 2 pictures with just your naked head.
Ok so the funny story. Me and Jaime wanted to get out of the house one night that we were all staying with my mom. My told me she was sorry, that she was not thinking about how Christopher would react, but she came out of the bathroom and at the same time took off her wig. She said Christopher's eyes got really big as she walked into the room to put her wig on the manikin head. Christopher got off the couch looked at my mom and then at the wig. He was like were is your hair, it just came right off. LOL Then the last night we were there, me and Chris slept in bed with my mom. Right before we went to sleep, he looked over at my mom. She was bald. He said grandma's hair and rubbed her head.. needless to say i wanted to cry. My mom will have her 3rd chemo treatment in 1 week. The Dr's told my mom she would not lose her hair until after the 2nd one. But she lost it 3 days after the 1st. We love her just as much with or with out hair. She is still beautiful.
