October 24, 2011 by Victoria Strong

Woowee! We have been going, going, going lately. And when we aren't going out with Miss G we have been working hard on some new changes/updates/projects with theGSF. We are pretty darn excited, but it means I haven't been blogging about my #1 girl as much as I usually do. There has been lots of...

Good Things For Gwendolyn—Valentines

February 21, 2011 by Victoria Strong
I can't believe it has been a week since Valentine's Day and I haven't posted about the many, many good things. Bottom line -- Gwendolyn loved all of it!

Valentine Party. Our Valentine fun began with a party hosted by our friend Marina a few days before the official day. Marina is one of those...

Christmas 2010

December 28, 2010 by Victoria Strong
The last few days have been really special...emotional. Seeing Gwendolyn fully embrace the excitement, the rituals, the stories that surround Christmas simply leaves us weak at the knees. We want nothing more than for our little girl to feel happy and included -- and she did in a big way.

We...

The Muscular Dystrophy Association was the first organization to really put a face to these many diseases with long and often hard to pronounce...

The Halloween Fun Begins

October 25, 2010 by Victoria Strong

We had a really great weekend of pre-Halloween fun. We have been so busy lately that we are getting a late start on all the Halloween goodness.

Easter Weekend

April 06, 2010 by Victoria Strong

We had a really wonderful Easter weekend. My dad and Bill's mom came up on Saturday and Gwendolyn loved it. She kept looking back and forth at them, listening to everything everyone was saying, and seemed extra content to have both Gramma and GrandPa around her. We had fun doing an Easter egg...

Easter Egg Fun

April 02, 2010 by Victoria Strong

Gramma is so creative and I am so glad. I have been busily collecting little gifts for Gwendolyn's Easter basket over the last few weeks (the usual sweets in the basket don't work for a child who doesn't eat by mouth), but I completely forgot about dying Easter eggs...and that's a perfect...

On The Mend/Lane Farms

October 19, 2009 by Victoria Strong
Gwendolyn is much, much improved. She is full of smiles, her eyes are bright, and she has her spunk almost completely back. We were all going a bit stir crazy after being stuck inside for several days, so we thought a morning jaunt to the darling pumpkin patch, Lane Farms, would be just the family...

Christmas Thoughts for Others

December 26, 2008 by Victoria Strong
This was Gwendolyn with Santa last year on Christmas day while we were in the hospital. And while we are proud our daughter was in the News-Press, we so wish it were under different circumstances. And so our prayers are especially with those who are in the hospital watching their children fight...

Hi, this is Gwendolyn. I love Christmas!!! I have had so much fun over the last few weeks, but today was extra special!
