Update in pictures!

It's been very busy here in my neck of the woods lately.  On top of that, I've been having some health issues (yes, again!).  It seems that this is my life lately.  Anyway, I'm 99% sure that the issues are NON cancer related, but I won't be completely sure until I see a few more specialists.  So, please keep me in your prayers.

I had wanted to post about Father's Day, Independence Day and our new cat....but time just got away from me.  So, instead, I'll just post some pictures to show you what we've been up to.


The kids and I decided we would make Daddy's present this year.  I had this idea in the back of my mind from Family Fun Magazine (I think) and thought it was something we could pull off.  I just went to Hobby Lobby and picked up 3 cardboard block letters and some paint.  Here is what we did:

Each of the kids got a letter to paint in Daddy's favorite color (maroon).  After everything was dry, we got cleaned up and went down to church to take a few pictures.

My handsome boy, Nathan.

Aren't they cute?

I am so blessed!

This is Shake n Bake.  He showed up at church one day and has never left.

I think he's beautiful.  We all just love him.

The bell tower.

We were blessed to be able to spend this holiday with some wonderful friends!  We had an incredible  FEAST at their house and then were treated to a fireworks extravaganza!  Thank you, Susan!  We had a blast...literally!

That's it for now.  Will be back to posting regularly again this coming week...I need to finish my 60 Day Photo Challenge...I think day 30 is next!

Have a great week everyone!

Nancy, I'm reading this post after your post today about the loss of your dear friend and the three others who've lost their lives to cancer. This burden you carry is great since it's hitting so close to home. I'm praying that your tests come out negative and you continue to be cancer free!

Love the pictures of your children... especially the ones where they are posing with the letters for Father's Day! God Bless you Nancy!
