Our 3 Cue Balls


For the sake of those who don't read our family blog I thought I should post a picture of Jackson's latest transformation. Since Kate was diagnosed the kids have planned on becoming "The 3 Baldies". After we cut off the rest of Kate's hair Jackson was ready to let his go too. We wanted to be able to capture the moment and all be present as a family so unfortunately he has had to wait a week for his big moment. Well, last night he got his wish and what a cute bald head he has!

Every few hours Jackson will giggle and rub his head. Then he'll say, "I forgot I was bald". What a sweet gesture of support Jackson has shown to his sister. We are unbelievably lucky to have our oldest son be such a kind, loving and sensitive child. He is everything that I ever wanted in an older brother.

What beautiful children you have!

Have you heard of St. Baldrick's Foundation? Our neighbor participates each year - it's a great way to show support and raise a lot of money for kids' cancer research, etc.

I found your blog through a link on a blog of a friend of mine. My uncle has lymphoma and we are doing a "light the night" walk at UNLV for the leukemia and lymphoma society, I will be thinking of your little girl that night. she is just a doll.

Hey Hansen Kids -- You've got a cute bald cousin in Lindon, too. He's proud of his bald head and wears his pink band faithfully every day. You are loved by many -- the hairless and the hairy!!
