This past week we had the most marvelous family time, celebrating Thanksgiving, hanging out with friends, and most importantly, celebrating Allie's life!
As mentioned in my last post, Allie just turned 12 on November 15th. Each year for Allie's birthday Zach and I make custom birthday t-shirts. In the past, Allie has picked the theme (wolves, islands, etc), but this year she was open to suggestions so Zach took creative license. This year's tee ended up being a long list of awesome things about Allie. Needless to say, she liked the shirt. :)
I have loved every second of quality time with Allie this week and as usual, tried to just soak it up. We've had some wonderful conversations and worked together too. Allie and I did some cooking together this week, which not only included Thanksgiving, but some fresh chocolate chip cookies to give to her friends on their way out to play.
