First Day of 2007

We begin the new year with a mix of emotion. My brother Bruce's daughter, Brenda, her husband Christian, son Jaiden (one day older than our grandson, Gentry David) and Christian's brother Sam hhave been here since the 23rd. My sister Debbie and her family have been staying with us since the 29th. And what could be better than a new granddaughter--baby Jenda?

But Dad is still in the hospital after bypass surgery on a coratid artery three days ago. He is clear of mind but is having trouble articulating his thoughts and expressing himself. Our prayers are for a full recovery. Please pray for Boyd and for my mom, Vi as she has been with him 24/7 since the surgery.

Last night we had a few friends and family over for paella...this may be our new New Year's eve tradition!

So this is wishing you and yours God's very best in 2007

How is your dad doing now? life can be so sweet and sour sometimes, can't it.Realities auch as your dad's surgery mixed in between your Christmas party, the bowl game and your family and Andy and Natalie's baby.
You have made a real differece in my life in 2006. See you soon.
