Antique Game Night

Once a month, we have an event at our church
for the women of the congregation and their friends.
It is a time to just hang out and get to know each other
and each others neighbors and friends better.

This month, we had what was billed as an Antique Game Night.
We played games from yesteryear.
It was so much fun to have several of our teens
attend. We enjoyed vintage snacks such as
cokes (in bottles) with peanuts dropped in for excitement.
There were also Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes.
Hopscotch kept us on our toes.
And some of us on the ground.
Hula Hooping

Jump Roping


Simon Says and Mother May I?
Musical Chairs got a little competitive.

Pick Up Sticks



Candy Land
The very best part of the night was the sound of laughter
as women got to know each other and
enjoy each other's company.

If you live in the Colorado Springs area, we hope
you will join us for our March event.

What a Neat Thank You!

My sweet husband is always doing
something kind for someone.
His kindness is only exceeded by his generosity.
Recently a friend made him a cookie bouquet
as a thank you gift for something kind he did.
Check out these beautiful cookies.
And Jeanette, they were delicious too.

And did you notice the great vintage
sifter that serves as a vase?
I'm hoping David might share that with me.

Happy Birthday Poppy!

My sweet daddy (Poppy)
passed away a little over a year ago.
God is so gracious in providing us with
comfort in a variety of ways.
In this picture taken by
at Kelly and Adrian's wedding,
notice the image that appears
over Poppy's head.
I am reminded of the Amy Grant
song "Angels Watching Over You."
Poppy definitely does not need angels
watching over him. He is praising God
right now as I write this, but thank you God
that your angels are watching over all
of us who he left behind.
We'll all meet you one day, daddy.

Health Upddate February 5, 2012

Many of you read my post about the
when I completed my Radiation

I had my own personal ringing of the
bell this week for what I believe is
a milestone. I am not advertising
this blogpost on FaceBook as I
often do because there might be
more information that some of you
want to know, but if you are interested,
please read on.

On February 1st, I had my first
3 month check-up with my oncologist.
All blood counts and the examination
showed that I am doing very well.

Then on, February 2nd, my plastic
surgeon did surgery. He replaced
the temporary, expander implants
with permanent implants.
He also removed my chemotherapy
port. What a special way to
"end" this part of my journey.

Thank you God!
Thank you friends and family for all your
support and prayers.

Any Valentine's Ideas?

I bought 100 of these
little hearts at a resale
shop last weekend.

Does anyone out there in Blogland
have a good idea for what I
should do with them?
