Arts and Entertainment

Five doses down and one to go for this round of Erwinia shots and NO reaction so far. Georgia has powered through the last week, and we couldn't be more proud of her! She's feeling pretty good to boot, but we're looking forward to a little break next week.

Yesterday, she got a real treat - two, in fact - thanks to our friends at the clinic and the Starlight Foundation. First, Georgia made a new friend named Will:

He was in town for a few events to promote and fundraise for Cancer for College, which awards scholarships to cancer survivors. He had stopped by the clinic to visit with the kids, and we caught him in the hallway just as he was leaving. He was beyond sweet, posing for pictures and an autograph, and Georgia gave him one of her bracelets. It was really quite something.

Later, we went to see Ballet Austin's production of Coppelia, and we loved it. Georgia has taken classes at the Academy, so it was fun to see former teachers and members of the company again. She is really excited to get back to classes in the fall, already thinking about what part she might get in The Nutcracker this year. Nothing's going to keep this girl from dancing!


  1. That sounds AWESOME and I CANNOT believe you met WILL FERRELL!
    You rock,

    Will Ferrell?! You lucky ducky!! Keep going good with your new shots girl!! I got the yarn for your hat today and have started on it!! Love .....Claire

  3. That's so cool you got to meet Will! You continue to wow me, Georgia. Give that mom of yours a big smooch tomorrow for me, ok? xoxo

  4. Hi everybody! Hope y'all had a nice weekend-- I hear you have a week off and the WBCs were really high!! Right on Georgia! Oh-- and meeting one of my favorite movie stars-- totally cool. I have never met any one famous. I once saw Richard Simmons randomly filming a sweating to the oldies video in a New York subway but that wasn't cool at all.
    Have a great week!

  5. Hi Georgia!
    Wow! How neat that you have a picture of you with Will Farrell! I saw his movie "ELF" and thought it was hysterical! Lolly told me that you have aleady seen it but it's funny even after two or three "viewings."
    I'm so happy to hear that you are doing so well! Lolly called me and told me the good news!
    I'd like to mention again what a nice time Sandy and I had visiting with you, your Mom and Lolly! We'd like to come see you again after school is out.
    I hope that you are having a fantastic week!
    Hugs and Kisses,

  6. That is sooo super cool!!! Will Ferrell is one of my favorites!!! Great picture!!!

    Will - not Ferrell - "TNT" Will :-)

  7. I have to ditto what "my Will" said...SUPER COOL! He beat me to posting...he must have saw the update at work before I did. So glad that all is going well with the shots!

    Love, Dianna

  8. Georgia, it was great seeing you the other day. You look terrific. Enjoyed seeing your grandmother Winters also. Hope you are working on the puzzle and making bracelets without losing too many beads. Love your pictures on this blog especially you and Will. Know we are thinking of you. Love, Beverly
