You Say It's Your Birthday

It's Sarah's birthday, if you want to wish her a happy birthday go here. What can I say about Sarah, she's a fabulous mom and a fantastic aunt and a great sister. My son Ryne is a little bit in love with her. She can torture, tease, tickle and harass him and he laughs with delight. I try any of that and he goes ballistic. Sarah you are the greatest and I love you! Happy birthday we'll see you tomorrow.

A death in the family

Kate woke up this morning and told me that she thought there was something wrong with Spotty. She was right, Spotty the Frog passed away this morning. It was a sad day for the kids. Kate and Emma took it especially hard. Ryne kept saying he guessed he and Garett (a buddy of his) would have to find something else to play. Here's to you Spotty, you loved to jump on Nikki's head and freak her out, you scared just about every small child who thought they might want to hold you, you always peed on anyone who chose to pick you up, you loved to be behind the wheel of the Speed racer car. Buggy, the kids will miss you.

Now I can take naps


Matt receiving his purple heart from Marianne

How many chemo's left? ZERO

It's over, chemo is over. Matt graduated from chemo today, we said good bye to his super sweet nurses and we all cheered. It's been a long six months but it was worth it. Matt is healthy and we are all happy. Thanks to everybody for your prayers and thoughts we couldn't have made it through the year of hell without you!
