Tomorrow Cole will be six. Boy has the time flown. It seems like he was just born yesterday. We are having his party on Saturday. When asked what he wanted for his birthday he said 4 lbs of money. He sure keeps the joy in my life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLEMAN!!!!!!

Sunday we went to Disney on Ice. As you can see we were having a great time. What fun would it be with out the goodies that goes with it. We had cotton candy, snow cones, and popcorn. The kids loved the skating and seeing the Disney Characters. I do believe the adults had as much fun as the kids if not more.
It also was a great day for my sister Fran (Julie and Lorrie's mom) to spend time with the kids as she is going in for surgery Friday for kidney cancer. She has renal cell cancer that normally is a very slow growing cancer and the tumor is very small. But this wicked tiny tumor decided to settle near the collecting system which if it grew could cause the cancer to spread through the blood stream. Thankful that I work for the doctors who will be doing her surgery so I know she is in good hands. I will give you an update this week end. Please keep her in your prayers.

Where has the time gone...It has been forever since my last post. The holidays have come and gone. Each year they seem to fly faster and faster. I can't believe we are almost 1/2 through January already and my middle child will be 30. Where have those years gone????
Next week my oldest sister Fran will be having surgery for Kidney Cancer. Normally it is a tumor that they would watch because it is so slow growing, but this is growing into the collecting system so the decision is to remove the whole kidney. The out look is really good and her other kidney is in good health. But always a little scary when someone is having surgery.
Over the holidays one of my Christmas presents was the news that I'm going to be a grandma again in August. My youngest Ryan and his wife Karlee are expecting their first. It will be a very exciting year for them. They will move into their new house next week and the baby in August.
Julie is back working on my home to get it ready for workshops. She is working this with my nickle budget and is doing an amazing job. Hope to post pictures very soon...
This week end going to Disney on Ice with the grandkids. I haven't been forever and think will be a great time for the boys. Hope to get some great pictures and will tell you all about it.
Hope everyone has a great week and will not wait so long to post again.
