Me: Ella, what do you want to do for your First Diaversary?
Ella: Have a party where we play fun diabetes games and invite all of my T1D friends.
Me: What are fun diabetes games?
Ella: Oh, you know. Like check your blood sugar and whoever has the highest & lowest wins...
And thus was born our
Diabetes Carnival o'Fun
|Ella's welcome sign. |
I heart Diabdy. Even tho it stingks.
DT1 & DT2 Rock! We Can Rock the Night Away
More Carb-counted goodies
Lots of Buffer (aka crystal lite)
Carb Muncher Game
Pop the Balloon with an Insulin Needle

Guess the # of Sharps
Go ahead...take your best guess!
And, of course, prizes!!
We had a great time.
I love being surrounded by Type 1 Families.
And Type 1 kids are just the absolute best.
I also had our family photographer, Amy Fink at Belliveau Photography take some photos of Ella & her Diabetes Gear. I LOVE the way they turned out.
Because they show a happy, healthy, joyful girl who just happens to have Type 1 Diabetes.
And who looks darned cute rocking it!
This is me & my bag o'goodies...
This is my insulin needle...
Take that, Diabetes!
I am Strong
Mom told me to check my blood sugar.
This just happens to be my favorite finger to poke.
Mom laughed and said: PERFECT!
354?? Ummm...I think there's something wrong with the new site!?!
Me & My Low Busters.
I get to eat more candy now than before I was diagnosed!
Happy First Diaversary, Ella!
