Prayers Please

In the next few months our family will be experiencing 
two, very, important surgeries.

Kimmy and Mark have 6 children.
Two of them will be having surgery, shortly.

Lulu is 11, soon to be 12 years old, will be having ASC,
which is a non fusion spine surgery to correct her scoliosis.
It is a new type of surgery, only been around for a couple of years.

Lulu's surgery is on April 1 and taking place in New Jersey.
Kimmy and Mark are flying back with Lulu
(and Nathan because he is still being breast feeding), for 10 days.
Tom and I will be staying in Idaho to take care of the other children.

Nathan and Lulu

Nathan ( 6 months) was born with a closed skull or Craniosynostoisis.
His specific type is called, Sagittal. 
He will be having surgery to open his scalp and repair his skull.  
Giving his brain room to grow, normally.

Nathan's surgery will be in Salt Lake City,
on June 14th.
Tom and I will be traveling to Salt Lake City,
with the family.

Prayer requests:

Lulu's surgery
is a complete success.
Recovery is quick and comfortable.
Kimmy and Mark will be comforted before, during and after surgery.
Traveling to and from, will be easy.
Tom and I will be able to care and comfort the other children to their needs,
They will come home safely.

Nathan's surgery is a complete success.
Recovery is quick, that he will sleep well and be comfortable.
Kimmy and Mark will be comforted before, during and after surgery.
And that God's hand will be on all of us before, during and after wards.

One Fun Day, One ???? Evening

Tom and I babysat two of the six grand kids.
Silas, 5 years and Isaac, 2 years.

We had so much fun.

One of the funnest things was
watching the washing machine, while it was going.
We turned off the lights and Silas held up the flashlight.

Then they watched the dryer.

Totally fun!

 Monday night was date night!

Let me tell you...
this is one fancy, lite up cinema!
Just pulling up to the outside was impressive.

This is the concession stand.
You can hardly see it.

 Even the ceilings were lit up!

Being a cold, Monday night,
we had our pick of seats.
We even talked out loud to each other.

We were the only ones in the theater.

Can you see Tom's head?

Before the movie started,
we questioned why we were the 
only ones in the theater.

After the movie we KNEW why...
crummy movie.

Save your money!

Flu Season, Are You Ready?

People have been making Elderberry Syrup for years.
The benefits are amazing.
The berries help prevent and treat flu, colds, coughs, sinus pain. 
Well, the lists goes on.

click here for more info.

 I have been taking a tablespoon a day,
since the end of September.
Not even a cold!

Tom on the other hand,
 just finished with the worst bronchitis!
He didn't take the syrup.
(no, it wasn't part of a scientific experiment, even though he thinks it was)

 I ordered my dried berries from Amazon.
The process is very easy.
Boil, strain, add honey, pour into a bottle
and refrigerate.

It's amazing, only one tablespoon.


Yesterday, we received a little bit of snow.
Not much, but enough
to cover the ground and make everything white.

This neighborhood boy (green jacket) was out 
shoveling our neighborhood sidewalks.
It was so thoughtful.

Here's Tom taking out the trash.
Shorts and flip-flops!
At least he has a hat and coat on!!

"Oh Tom!
I have something for you,
And it's really good for you!!"

I think I'll order more berries today!


"Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well."
 3 John 1:2
