Throwback Post: Fundraising With Books While at the Park With Treats and Celebrating

**THROWBACK POST**

June 1 2015:

Lillian has raised $33 so far for Demi’s Difference!! She is selling prints of The Egyptian Eye to raise money for attending the Chromosome 18 Conference this July and also donating 15% of money raised to this beautiful non-profit. She’s also decided to include her bookmark design in the fundraiser. Would anyone be interested in the bookmark? I can check into how to go about getting those made. Here’s her blog post about the conference and The Egyptian Eye.

Throwback Post: One Loving or Liked Quality

**THROWBACK POST**

June 1 2015:

We did something new last night rather than our traditional compliment cards. First, we did a 5 or 10 minute mindfulness exercise. Then we each thought of and wrote down one loving and/or liked quality of each other. I read each one aloud and we discussed what that meant for each of us. That was so inspiring and amazing.

Thomas’ qualities: How flexible he is and how thoughtful he is. Lillian’s qualities: She can be fun and her love of reading. Camilla’s qualities: She makes me feel loved and she tells me stuff like this. This made for such heartfelt and fun conversation! Give it a try! xoxo

Team TLC – Halloween 2022

November 1 2022

We had fun on Sunday participating in the C18 Halloween Zoom Dance Party. 👻👻🎃🎃👻👻

November 4 2022

I keep forgetting to post these. This was most likely Thomas’s last time hanging out with us for Halloween, so he took Lillian around without me this time. After about 20 Halloweens, I got the night off! 🎉👻🎃🎉

They both came back alive, and Thomas even took pictures while they were out. 🤣
