Good Saturday morning!  Wow!  It has been a whirl wind of fun with the family the last two days!  Thanksgiving was awesome!  This year we were at Ryan and Jenna's home.  We hang out all day with each other and eat the best dinner ever.  After dinner since our family is so big we break up into teams (and have team names) and play games that compete against each other for "fabulous prizes."  It is such a fun competition and we just laugh so hard.  My sister Monica was in charge this year and did a super job!  Thanks Monica!   We always end the night with a kick off for the Christmas season with a gift exchange game.  (You know the kind of gift you bring for a guy or  girl where you can pick a gift or steal it from someone else?). 

Then we continue the fun by getting up to shop on black Friday.  Guess what?  I AM DONE WITH MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!!!  Yes.... even down to the last stocking stuffer!  I had to.  I am just not sure on how I will be feeling next month and wanted to at least get that done.  My family all goes together and we laugh all day.  Found the best deals and except for the first place we went to the crowds weren't bad at all. 

It was so nice to have two days of keeping my mind occupied on other things.  We are all biased when it comes to our families......but I have a great one.  Couldn't ask for a better one.  I know I am blessed.  I am extremely grateful.

Now today is the day to get my house all decorated for Christmas.......My journey to fight my cancer starts on Monday.  I want to get the house all ready so when I come home it is done and I can enjoy it while recovering.  We also have a fun 50th birthday party celebration tonight to attend. 

Thank you for the continued love, support and prayers.  They are literally what is holding me up right now.  Have a super Saturday!  God is so Good!

Hey Leslie-We just got back into town and I had a chance to catch up on your blog - what a week you have had. I'm glad you had a good Turkey Day!! It sounds like you are all geared up and ready to go with your treatments this week. We will be thinking and praying for you. Thanks for being such an inspiration to all of us!! Take care and we'll catch up later. Love, Patty

Thanksgiving sounded like a blast...I could hear all the laughter as I was reading your post. Totally awesome. Sounds like you really have a game plan for this upcoming battle...getting all the Christmas shopping done, decorating so you can sit back and enjoy it as you're got it all covered. No doubt in my mind that you're going to win that fight against cancer too! You're soooo strong, you'll do it. Remember little David easily defeated the giant Goliath, and you'll do the same with cancer...because God's on YOUR side. Have a few errands to run today, then off to church tonight. Shoveled lots of snow again last night...hope this 'clipper system' moves out quickly. At least the road has cleared off and is only wet now, last night it was iced over pretty good. Talk to you again soon. All my love! Angel Hugs! "Angel" Linda
