You Snooze, You Lose

I think she's as tired as I am today!

It's been a busy few days and nights for us here, and I snoozed and snoozed and snoozed this morning as soon as my alarm started going off at 4:45.

Prison Break

This is what happens when you send your two oldest to play in their room because they're running around like wild monkeys nearly stomping on their baby sister.
You find a note on the floor stating:

Can we come with evry one else.

I did let them come out - eventually.

Maileen's Journey - October 17

August 2011
Going in for my 3rd CT scan...after 3 months the cancer in my liver had diminished to half...praying these last 3 months did more than that...God knows best...thanks for sticking through this journey with me/us.

We walked with over 7000 others, did more than 3 miles when you add just going back and forth to where the car had to be parked. Moving to see so many supporters and encouraging to talk to several survivors. Tomorrow I have my 3rd CT scan...praying for a clear liver, God knows best...;D

Check Yes or No

You would think two sisters, a hermit crab, some fish and two dogs would be enough for these two.
Not so much.

I was given two notes one morning before school -  literally.
We were getting ready to walk out the door.
Gianna exclaimed, "Read them!"
Espy told me she would get a pencil so that I could give them my answer.

Dear Mom,

Friday Faves

8,000 lanterns floating over Poznan, Poland to celebrate the summer solstice or Midsummer Night.
Love it.

An Innovator

Steve Paul Jobs
"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.
Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend
and an inspiring mentor.  Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built,
and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

Praying for his friends and family.

We Heart Sleepovers

The girls love spending the night at Tito Evan and Tita Sarah's house!
They would do it every weekend if they could,
but they can't -
