doing good

I took this pic this morning during pancake breakfast. Ohhh, Noah is so happy, such a sweet baby. Everything is going good..no job yet. Danny running slight fever but, feeling good..didn't even know about the fever. So, hopefully he won't get a cold or anything. Feeling a little stuffy myself :-(

Anyway, he'll have next to last treatment this week. Blech! Almost through..

Kids are doing good...Mac is working on an evening gown for herself..she's very excited ;-) Danny and Derek are...well....playing video games..something about Black Ops..LOL. Noah taking yet another nap. Sounds good actually.

Now Mac wants to be a fashion designer AND a dentist now (she went to the dentist earlier this week who is a friend of ours..and loved it) LOL

Hope everyone is doing good and thank you for your continued prayers. Thank you so much!!

Busy and hectic week..Noah is 10 weeks and such a sweet baby! Very good natured and happy, always laughing and smiling..wants to talk..he fits right in! LOL

Danny had 10th treatment this week (2 left). Had an allergic reaction to one of the drugs..after something to counteract it...he's doing good. The "symptoms" of the chemo has lasted a little longer this time. But, as always I'm amazed at how well and with such grace (is that the word I'm looking for?) he handles everything.

Started working out this week...yay me. Really need it..physically and mentally :-)
Have a great week everyone!!

Did anyone else roll over this morning and find a wet diaper between the sheets that somehow didn't get thrown away in the middle of the night, a leaky bottle and a wet outfit? No? Just me then.

The only time Noah even gets remotely fussy is about 9 or 10 at night..just when I want to go to bed and watch Modern Family on dvd...it's like he knows! After that he does great and actually sleeps through the night.

Today he figured out if he kicks his feet the bouncy seat moves. He especially likes an orange monkey in his sisters room. Loves books very much. His favorite right now seems to be The Hungry Caterpillar..(certain pages of it), Dream Snow, and The Best Mouse Cookie.

Today it is snowing hard and the kids (not Noah;-) are out playing in it. I think I'll bake. Have a to do list for January..so far only gotten a couple things done on it. I'd really just rather redesign all the kids rooms...paint, fabrics...ohhh, maybe that's what I'll do today.

Happy New Year!

We had a good holiday week, rented a couple movies and had a fire in the fireplace...very nice! Kids had a good break and back to homeschool this week.

Today we made soup for Danny while he was at his 9th treatment, actually I made the soup, Noah napped and Derek and Mac made a movie. Not sure who directed this one. Should probably take note as I'm sure it'll be on Leno..(is that still on?) Haven't watched tv in a while. Danny's relaxing now. Only 3 left. Can. Not. Wait.

I'm working on my patience and where does God want me..? Am I doing what I'm supposed to be doing? Is it enough? Think I should be doing more. I need a kids room to design...ahhhh. Any advice on how to move forward??

Very, very thankful for our friends. Thank you we are blessed :-)

I'll write more this week..whole wheat, oatmeal, chocolate cookies are ready to get out of the oven (they're better than they sound) and Noah is getting up from his second nap. :-)
