Homemade Crafts

For the past 2 weekends we've had some sort of craft to make. Two weekends ago, Casey's parents came over and we put them to work. Casey is teaching elementary during his student teaching this semester and next week he'll start high school. He has to have teacher examples of all the art they make, so Mr. Colson put us to work. My brother and his family were in town that weekend as well, so my nieces and nephew (ages 12, 13, &14) came over to help. We made individual trains to hook together. Unfortunately we didn't take a picture of the finished product.But apparently it was the hit of the school!

Hee..hee..I love Larry's face right here! He looks so proud of his 2nd grade train! We had to dry them faster so we could put buttons and do dads on them!! There were 8 trains total.

Then last weekend, Casey and I decided
 to make Valentines for our family. It was so fun!! I love having an elementary school teacher in our midst. It brought me back to my childhood. We had so much fun painting and decorating our valentines and then attached some caramel Hershey's kisses on them. Hee..Hee! Who knows what we'll be doing next weekend!

Good News!

I have great news!!! My dad is finished with chemo/radiation and we got the results from his PET scan which shows if there's any cancer anywhere in the body. And.....he's cancer free!!! Praise the Lord! This has been a long journey these past 7 months and we are so thankful for God answering our prayers. He's lost 100 pounds since June, but the good thing is he's only needing his insulin at night now. He's been a diabetic for 10 years so this is great news!! He's finally getting a little bit of appetite and learning to eat small meals since his stomach is now his esophagus. He finally has some energy and is able to work. It's tax season and he owns his own business so we were worried he wouldn't be able to. But God has answered all our prayers. He'll get another scan in 6 months, so keep praying the cancer stays outta there. Thank you thank you thank you for all of your prayers. God definitely heard them!!
