January 17th - Ice Cream Day!


Are you looking for a way to celebrate
Kyle's amazing life on his birthday?


January 17th would have been Kyle's 9th birthday. Nicolas and I have been talking about what we want to do on Kyle's day and the obvious answer is ICE CREAM DAY!

Some of you may remember a list that Nicolas and Kyle made of things they wanted to do together. We were able to turn many of those wishes into memories, including their wish to eat ice cream all day - breakfast, lunch, and dinner! So for us, January 17th from this year forward, is Ice Cream Day. We invite each of you, grown-up or kiddo, to make January 17th Ice Cream Day too!

We'd love to know you are joining in the fun so please write a quick comment letting us know about your own Ice Cream Day and a favorite memory with Kyle. I can't think of a better way to honor Kyle than to generate awareness of pediatric brain cancer and how much needs to be done to find a cure and to that end I'd like to piggyback on a recent Facebook experiment...on Sunday post your favorite ice cream flavor as your status update and ask your friends to do the same. When people ask why you have a flavor in your status you can proudly say "Because today I am eating ice cream to celebrate a little boy who loved his life, loved his family, loved his friends, and loved when his mom let him eat ice cream all day."

January 17th - Ice Cream Day!

Happy Birthday Kylie Wylie.
We love you.
xoxo

My friend Christina and I went and had gelato over in Fairhaven last night to celebrate Ice Cream Day! Chocolate and Hazelnut!

Favorite moment with Kyle: Jocelyn was my chemistry teacher and yearbook advisor and I don't think I've ever seen someone smile as big as he did when his boys ran into the classroom to visit :)

Happy birthday to a very special guy!
