Good Saturday morning!  Thanks to everyone who did a "Happy Dance" with me yesterday!  Susy were the first one.....that was a fun way to start off the day at school!  It was great of Jessica to provide the music!  lol  So, so thankful for moments like that!  I can't believe that it is already May 1st!  So happy to have the weekend off.  We are heading out in a little while to get Tyler's 6 month pictures done.  Looking forward to seeing how they turn out.  I have lots to do this weekend so I am sure that the time will fly by.

Thank you so much Ashley Gundy for yesterday!  That was great! 

I would like to wish my cousin Claudette a very "Happy Birthday" today!  I also want to wish my nephew Scott a very "Happy Birthday" tomorrow.  Have a wonderful celebration!  Aunt Maryann.....can I come over for the Texas BBQ???  Oh I wish!  :)

Terrie O......have a great time in Texas with your beautiful granddaughter's!!

Brenda you have an update on your dad?

Here is a picture of Tyler who had just woke up from a nap and was snuggling with his mommy.

Psalms 34 verse 1 &2:  I will praise the Lord no matter what happens.  I will constantly speak of his glories and grace.  I will boast of all his kindness to me.  Let all who are discouraged take heart.  Let us praise the Lord together, and exhalt his name.

Have a wonderfully fun and relaxing weekend!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  See you on Monday!!

What are you planning on having for dinner tonight?  What did you have for dinner last night?

Good Friday morning!  I want to thank you for all of the good wishes and prayers for me yesterday.  Everything went really well at my oncologist's office.  Dr. McClay said that I should be very happy because I was doing extremely well.  I told him I was thrilled and so very thankful!  He had nothing but good news for me and it was great to actually visit with all of the office staff and see all of my chemo nurses without having any anxiety.  They treat Mike and I like we are part of their family and are just as happy to visit with us like we were with them.  God could not have led me to a better place.  I cannot say enough good things about Dr. McClay.....he genuinely cares, is in no hurry, listens and has a great relationship with his patients. 

The Cheesecake Factory was sooooo good!!  I had the red velvet cake cheesecake with cream cheese frosting and Mike had the pineapple upside down cake cheesecake.  Both were so awesome that we took some more to go!  I think I am still stuffed from it all.

I have one last picture to show you from the party Saturday night.  This one is of Tyler and what he did to his Hawaiian lei.  He really tore into it. Ha! Ha!




Could you all please keep my friend Bill Cartwright in your prayers for healing and strength.  I also got a prayer request for a woman who recently got pink slipped from work, house was very damaged in the earthquake and found out she has breast cancer and had a mastectomy.  That is a lot to hit you in just a few weeks.  She could really use our prayers. 

Psalms 33 verse 21: No wonder we are happy in the Lord!  For we are trusting him.  We trust his holy name.  Yes, Lord, let your constant love surround us, for our hopes are in you alone.

Have a fantabulous Friday everyone!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Thank you God for healing my body from cancer!

Strawberry shortcake or pineapple upside down cake??  I love both!!!

Good morning!!!  WoooooHooooo!!!!  I already got the good news that my PET scan was clean!!  No signs of any new or active tumors!!!  Praise God!!!  We are all rejoicing at this great news!!!

So Mike was at work yesterday and went to see if they had faxed the PET scan report to my oncologist.  The radiology dept. handed him the report and he went ahead and read it.  It was all good news!  I was so happy that I wanted to cry!  It has now been 1 1/2 years since I have had a new tumor........."happy dancing" here!!  We are headed to San Diego this morning and I am going totally relaxed.  I have been thanking God and giving him 'high fives' in the sky since I have heard the news.  I will let you know how my appointment with my oncologist goes tomorrow.


We are celebrating by going to the Cheesecake Factory today.  I think that is what I am going to order for lunch instead of food.  Yep.......just a big slice of cheesecake.  Don't know which kind yet.....just know that it will all be good!

I want to wish a very "Happy Birthday" to my friends Amy Bonillas and Edna Clary!!!  Have a fantabulous day girls!!  Hope your day is full of fun!!

My American Idol favs are still in!  Yay!!  I was not sad to see Shioban go.  Now there are only 5.  Eeeekkk.....It is starting to get to the contestants I like.  Well as long as Lee or Crystal win I will be okay.

Psalms 33 verse 1:  Let all the joys of the godly well up in praise to the Lord, for it is right to praise him.  verse 5: He loves whatever is just and good; the earth is filled with his tender love.

Have a super day everyone!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Thank you God for miracles!!!  Tomorrow I will post some more pics.

Good Wednesday morning!!  I hope everyone is having a good week so far.  Tyler Michael is 6 months old today!  Can you believe it?  Time is flying by.  I keep telling him to stop growing.....but he keeps doing it anyways! lol  Later this afternoon I am going to take some pictures of him with his 6 month candle.  On Saturday Jenna has an appointment to get his pictures done professionally.  Now they should be able to get some good pictures of him on his tummy.  Can't wait!

So what did you think about American Idol last night?  The four I have always liked Crystal, Lee, Casey and Mike are still in the competition.  All six did pretty well last night.  It will be interesting to see who gets voted off.  I hope Crystal and Lee make it to number 1 & 2.

Tomorrow I leave in the morning for San Diego to see my oncologist Dr. McClay for my PET scan results.  Thank you so much for keeping me in your prayers for a clean scan.  As soon as I get the results I will call my sister again and she will update you here.  My appointment is at 11:00 pacific time.

Here are some more pics from Saturday's party. ( Aunt MaryAnn....I am 5'4 and Jeff is 6'3.  I have been looking up to him for a long time....Mike also wanted me to tell you that Texas is famous for their BBQ beef brisket)  :)  This is the happy couple Donald and Noni.



Jenna and me.




My nephew Chris and Noni.




Mike and I with our precious grandbaby Tyler.  He was very sleepy here.



Psalms 29 verse 11:  He will give his people strength.  He will bless them with peace.  30 verse 2: O Lord my God, I pleaded with you, and you gave me my health again. verse 4: Oh, sing to him you saints of his; give thanks to his holy name.  31 verse 23  Oh, love the Lord, all of you who are his people; for the Lord protects those who are loyal to him.

Have a wonderful day everyone!  Today is another gift from God and He is so good!

Anyone remember the name of the first dog or cat they had?

Good Tuesday morning! Had another nice little earthquake last night.  Just when we think they have stopped another one comes along to remind us that they haven't.  Hope they end fully soon.

Thank you to everyone that has come to me with the most positive encouragement about Thursday.  I feel the prayers! 

Here are some more pictures from the luau party at Donald and Noni's on Saturday.

More pics tomorrow.  Hope you are enjoying them.

Psalms 27 verse 14:  Don't be impatient.  Wait for the Lord, and he will come and save you!  Be brave, stouthearted and courageous.  Yes, wait and he will help you.  Chapter 28 verse 7:  He is my strength, my shield from every danger.  I trusted in him, and he helped me.  Joy rises in my heart until I burst out in songs of praise to him.

Have a terrific day everyone!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so good!  Thank you God for joy!

What is your latest "go to" snack.  I have been addicted to Pepperedge Farm Goldfish crackers lately.  Any one else like them?
