Loving Libbie

Saturday, we had the great pleasure of representing the 46 Mommas and the St. Baldrick's Foundation at one the best parties of the year: the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation's 3rd Annual Birthday Bash! We celebrated precious Libbie and helped raise money for the amazing Becky and her crew at A Trip to Bountiful bakery and cafe to continue their good work of feeding the children in treatment at our clinic, Dell Children's Hospital, and the Ronald McDonald House. There were games and activities galore, all sponsored by a variety of organizations from the childhood cancer community, but the stars of the show are always the macaroni and cheese and the birthday cake!

This year's cake was inspired by ColorCancer's use of the colors associated with different types of cancer to raise awareness and funds to fight those cancers. It was just as colorful on the inside, as you can see! The cake also featured the sign for "I Love You," which holds special meaning for Becky and her daughter, Libbie.

At the end of the party, Georgia presented Becky with her painting, "Still Life with Macaroni and Cheese," to thank her for all of the delicious food and cakes from Bountiful that our family has enjoyed over the past three years. Becky sent me a message today that said, "I am so touched and honored to have this painting from Georgia. I took it to work today and showed it off to everyone. You know how shy I am...not many people saw it...wink. Come in soon and I think you might find it hanging quite proudly with a fabulous frame in an important spot at the bakery."

It was a very sweet day.
