No, I haven't fallen off the earth. I was just taking a break for a bit. Our lives really haven't been that interesting, and man it sure seemed like 2011 flew by. We have had some sad news in our family recently. Around Oct. my oldest brother was diagnosed with cancer. It was located on his tongue and safely removed. Cancer, however; wasn't finished with our family. My mother (a 2 time cancer survivor) was informed in Dec. the cancer we thought she beat in 2008, was indeed back. It is inoperable and they cannot do radiation. They will treat it with Chemo, and hopefully it will keep it from growing.
On with info on the kiddos..Danny has grown 2 inches since school started, he is now in men's clothing, and will be shaving soon I am sure. He is slowly adjusting with a new school, and is still his fun loving self. Riles loves her new school, grew an inch, lost five pounds and went back a size in jeans. We had to buy a belt to keep her pants from falling down. She is still as spirited as ever, but I cannot imagine my life without either of them.
Our Christmas was pretty low key and the kids managed to score lots of things from their Christmas lists. As for me, Chris gave me money for christmas and my birthday and I bought myself a Silhouette Cameo. It is simply the best machine. I am sure I will find things I am not so happy about, but for now..it cuts way better than my cricut. I haven't decided if I will keep the bug or not. Anyway, here are pictures of our christmas fun.
Happy New Year everyone.
