           HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!!!

Good morning!!  For all of you that read my blog and don't live in the Imperial Valley we had a BIG earthquake yesterday.  It registered at 5.8 with lots of aftershocks up to 4.8.  Jenna and I were strolling Tyler into the mall when it hit.  It took us both a few seconds to figure out what was happening.  We stayed outside until we thought it was okay.  When I got home there were just a few things that had fallen from our shelves.  Other then that everything looked fine.  Haven't felt one that big in a while.  I pray that we are done with those now.  Where were you when it hit??  Any damage??

Had a nice lunch out with Mike, Jenna, Ryan & Tyler, Matt & Lacey and Leslie & Nick.  Leslie & Nick were out visiting from Tennessee.  It was great seeing you Leslie and meeting your new hubby!

Terrie O.....I have my *Believe* sign on the window of my back door and I told Mike that it is staying up until it falls off.  I just love it!  Makes me smile everytime I walk into the house.

So what is everyone up to tonight?  How are you celebrating the New Year tonight?  Mike and I will probably be toasting in the New Year at around 10:00 and then sleeping through the New Year.  I know....I know.....exciting stuff huh?  Mike has to work early on New Years Day so no big plans for us this year. The hospital is one place of business that never shuts down. 

Have a wonderful day everyone and if you are going out tonight have fun!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Thank you God for the start of a New Year!  May you bless us all with love, good health, peace and happiness.

So where were you when the quake hit???

Good Tuesday evening!!  I am blogging tonight because I have a Dr. appointment early in the morning.  I am having some sinus trouble so they got me in first so I don't have to be around anyone else that might be sick.

Thank you everyone for praying for me today!  I really appreciate it!  Our prayers were answered!  The PET scan went smooth.  They also got my vein on the first try!  Yahoo......the guy doing it thought he was going to have to try a few times because the vein wasn't looking good......but thank God he was able to get it on the first try!  I do have a real peace about the results too.  No anxiety so far.

Here is a picture of Tyler and I with my dear friend Terrie Olstowski and her adorable granddaughters Cori and Kasey (hope I spelled those right).  Her granddaughters live in Texas and they were out for a visit.  I was so happy to be able to meet them finally!  Can you believe that we are grandma's together Terrie??  What a HUGE blessing they are.....and so much fun!  Good to see you too Henryk, Alexa and Emily!

Terrie & Twins
We just got home from my in-laws house.  The Gilbert/Middleton/Stiegemeyer families got together for some Christmas fun.  (this was the night we could all be together)  We had a great time, ate a ton and had lots of laughs.  I am so thankful for them all!  

Tyler's Dr. appointment yesterday went well.  He is a healthy little guy.  I think his two month shots were harder on Nanie then Tyler. 

Well I have all of my Christmas decorations put away for the year.  I wish that the season lasted longer.  It flew by...... but I had an awesome time!  Looking forward to a great 2010.

Have a wonderful day everyone!!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Thank you God for all of the prayer warriors in my life!

When do you take down your Christmas decorations??

Good morning!!  How was your Christmas and how was your weekend?  We had a nice and relaxing weekend after all the Christmas fun.  I actually got to do some scrapping this weekend too.  I wanted to share a couple of pictures with you from Christmas morning.  Here is a picture of me and Tyler, still in our pajamas, on the floor in the middle of all the Christmas mess playing with a new toy he got from his Uncle Donald and Aunt Noni.  It had music and lights and he LOVED it!!

Tyler 10

Here is a close up picture of him loving his new toy!  He is soooooo sweet!

Tyler 11
Christmas was just so special having a new little one to share it with.  Tyler was so good through out all of Christmas Eve and Day.  Having Tyler and my good health were all the gifts that I needed and I thanked God so much for both!  I really appreciate all of the good times that I have with my family and do not take any of it for granted.  I am so, so thankful!

Today Tyler is 2 months old.  Can you believe that?  It also means that it is time for his 2 month shots.  Jenna and I are taking him to his Dr. today to get them.  Please pray that he does well with his shots.

Tomorrow morning Mike and I have to leave at 5:15 to be in Yuma, Arizona by 7:15.  They are only an hour away but their time is an hour later then us.  I always like to get an early morning appointment because I can't eat or drink anything until the PET scan is all done.  It is about a 3 hour process.  Mike and I always go out to a BIG breakfast when I am all done.  I have a BIG prayer request......could you pray that they find a vein on the first try?  They will not use my port for this test so they will have to try to get a good vein in my arm.  Pray that the test will go smooth and for great results!  I see my oncologist for my results on January 5th.  Also prayers for peace for Mike and I and our whole family.  Thank you very much!

I won't be blogging tomorrow because we will be gone.  When we get back we are celebrating Christmas at my in-laws house with the whole Gilbert family.  I will blog again on Wednesday.

Have a great day everyone!!  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Thank you God for JOY!!!

Good morning!!  How was your Christmas??  Our family had a great time!  Mike and I hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year.  Tons of fun and we ate tons of food!  I am going back to my regular eating schedule today.  It is absolutely the best time when our whole family is together.  Having Tyler here just made our Christmas even more special.  I will have a couple of pictures to share with you on Monday when I blog again.

I was so thankful to God for just being here this Christmas....healthy......not doing any treatments or anything.  Just cherishing and appreciating each and every moment.  Can't begin to tell you how much I thanked God yesterday for it all.  What a wonderful answer to not only my prayers but to yours as well.

It was so great to see you Susan Beach and family!  Had a great time and you spoil me!  Thanks for everything!

Be safe on your trip Christie and family.  Have a great time at your mom's house!  By the way.....I loved everything that I got with the 12 days of Christmas!  I'll tell you more about that later.

Love you Monica and Gregg!  Have a great time in Michigan!  So happy that you were here for Christmas!  Don't freeze too much Monica!  :)

Thanks Angel Linda for everything!!  Loved it!!

We all got together last night and watched the San Diego Charger game.  Another Charger win!!  WooHoo!!  We now have a first round bye in the playoffs!  Our last regular season game is next Sunday at home against the Washington Redskins.

I have received many prayer requests these past couple of days.  I want you to know that I got them....and have been faithfully praying!  It has been such a blessing for me to pray for you and to see the miraculous ways in which God is at work.  Please keep me posted on how things are going.

Happy Birthday Kriss Hobelman!!  Have a great day today Kriss!!!

I have a  lot going on this weekend so I am going to go and get started on things.  Have a great weekend everyone!!  I will be back here on Monday.  Today is another gift from God and He is so Good!!  Thank you God for great memories!
