Merry Christmas!!!

I guess the old saying, "No news is good news" applies to my posting blogs....
I didn't mean for it to be over 3 months since posting....but it is actually because the saying must be true!
Zoe has been wonderfully well since her 3 weeks of antibiotics in August!! I'm pretty sure this is the longest she has gone without oral antibiotics to treat a cough/infection in... I can't remember how long!!! :-)
We truly feel blessed!

Alex, Madison, Sydney and Zoe are all taking Kung Fu, Jiujitsu, and Gung fu...they all absolutely love it! It's been amazing to watch them learn the different stances. They have already received several stripes on their white belts.
Zoe cannot do the full impact parts, like sparring or the Jiujitsu due to her Port A Catheter. Which, by the way, has been amazing for her!! Her anxiety about going into the hospital is pretty much all gone. We apply a numbing cream to her Port site an hour before any needle is put into she feels zero pain. IV's are no longer a horrible anxiety issue for her.

We spent a lovely Thanksgiving in south Florida with Scott's wonderful parents. They spoiled us with tons of amazing food, fishing and boat trips! They are such a blessing to us!!

We are now gearing up for Christmas! House is finished being the baking and shopping starts. All the kids will be here this year except Dalton. Donna and our grand baby, Ella, will be here though. Dalton has a job opportunity to get his foot in the door at a business close to us....hard choices have to be made sometimes in order to look out for your family's future. We will miss him terribly!

I hope and pray that you and your's are doing just as amazing as we are right's crazy how 3 months of your daughter not being sick can make you "almost" feel normal.

Take care of YOU and YOUR'S.....
