Christmas Trees with a… popsicle stick?

Hi friends! Who is ready for the holidays? Not me! In my family we don’t put the decorations up until closer to Christmas. But I definitely have been trying to get my family to tell me what they want for Christmas.     At work we’re not ready yet either. The donations for Santa’s workshop […]

Special Agent Sarah reporting in!

We had a fun time recently hosting a secret agent activity for our patients and families. My coworker came up with the idea as well as the activities, and I along with my pod helped her put the event on. It was lots of fun and I thought it would be cool to share it […]

The Power of Halloween

So yesterday was Halloween and once again I was amazed at the creativity that goes into the holiday. I saw not only some pretty awesome costumes (cardboard army tank, anyone?) but some really cool decorations. While it’s often marketed as a holiday for the kids, adults definitely have fun too on Halloween. For example, my […]

Let Your Flag Fly!

If you life in America, you probably noticed that the Super Bowl was tonight. If you are an American Football fan, you probably watched the game, and maybe even went to a Super Bowl party. I am guilty of the latter two this year, even though I wouldn’t define myself as a fan. Which is […]

Popcorn Party: Your Healthcare Companion

Last night I got to see “Big Hero Six” at the movie theater. I was super excited to see the movie since I had heard so many good things and the trailer looked so good. In fact, the movie trailer I shared with you a few weeks ago for a Friday Fun post was one […]

The Power of Art Over Radiation Treatment

I wanted to share with you all this week a great article about kids taking control over their radiation treatment. Did you know that for some types of radiation treatment patients must wear a special mask that keeps their head in just the right spot during radiation? The mask itself can look quite scary, even […]

I am so excited about an article I just read that I wanted to share it with all of you readers, especially since it applies so well to the goal of this blog. The Guardian just released a piece on how singing to children can impact their language development. You can read the article in […]
