Good News!

We just got some wonderful news! My MIL's blood work came back from her cancer testing. Her initial cancer marker level was an 80. Her levels as of last week were 30! Her brain tumors have shrunk significantly as well and her sight is improving due to the release of pressure. Praise God! Prayer is working. Please, please, please keep Sally in your prayers. She's still weak and very tired.

Recent Sewing!

I've sewn up a bunch of new diapers lately. 5 for a friend having a baby next week, and one for Bryson. Bryson LOVES his new orange diaper. Now for pics!

Summer Movies!

Cinemark, one of our local theatres, has $1 movies for the kids once a week during the summer. I loaded up my two kiddos and two neighbors and we went off to go see "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything." So $5 got us into the movie, $15 got us all snacks. $20 bucks for an entire morning's entertainment. Not real bad considering I could have dropped much more by going to Wal-Mart or Target. All the kids except for the shortest one (a.k.a. Bryson) were pretty good. Short dude kept tormenting the family in front of us. He was kicking their seats, trying to pull hair, all sorts of generally annoying things. We did get through the movie okay though! We ran into several friends there as well. Amazing how you seem to find everyone you now in the same places you are, especially when you're not in a small town (not that B/CS is a large city or anything).

So, now Mikayla is with a friend we saw at the movies. She won't be home until time to go to VBS. Bryson is napping. And me.. I'm trying to get work done, blog, do laundry, and everything else on my list before said Short Dude wakes up!

Well.. It's today..

Nothing really of note. Just wanted to update everyone on all the goings-on.

My MIL (who is undergoing treatment for cancer) is slightly better. Better meaning that her brain tumors have shrunk, but her lung tumors have not. She's still on oxygen, still getting chemo and getting steroids once a week. The steroids help her feel better for a day or two before she starts spiraling down again.

The belly bean is growing, kicking and causing heartburn for me. Baby refuses to share gender, so we will be having a surprise baby. Hopefully, gender will become painfully obvious at birth :)

Mikayla starts Vacation Bible School tonight. And man oh man is Bryson upset that he isn't old enough to go yet. He really, really wants to go.

We got about 15 tadpoles from a friend. They are currently living in a rubbermaid container on my kitchen counter. I've gotta figure out what to feed them before they die!
