For quite a while I have been battling problems with my thyroid. In the last year, I have been up, I have been down, I have been diagnosed with Hashimotos disease, I have had a biopsy and finally given the news that radiation therapy is my last resort. I'm not going to lie, I'm a little nervous. I have to leave my family for 3 days and be in isolation. I know that Chris will do a great job taking care of the kids and my family will be amazing and help out, but I can't help but worry. I don't really know what to expect afterwards. The idea of having to be on medication for the rest of my life is not exactly floating my boat! I am the WORST at remembering to take pills! I know that this is going to make me healthy in the long run and I am going to feel SOO much better, but I still wish I didn't have to do it! I do my first session on Wednesday to find out exactly how much radiation I need and then next week I will be given my doses and I will say goodbye for 3 days. Who knows, maybe in a few months I will be a spry young chicken again! I can only pray!!

Help my friends

My friend Curtis and his wife are trying to adopt a child. They need our help to get their name and profile out to as many people as they can. I have added a button to the side of my blog that you can push to get their profile. Please read it and tell everyone you know about them and how wonderful they are. I know they will be amazing parents one day, all they need is the opportunity! If you know of anyone who knows someone or is thinking of putting their child up for adoption themselves, please have them click this button. Everyone deserves to have a child. You may just give them the chance.

Happy Birthday Christopher!!

On Jan. 6th, Christopher turned 27 years old! Now, being the horrible wife that I am, we didn't do much! I always feel so bad for him. His birthday is right after Christmas and this year, we went on vacation right before as well. He always gets lost in the commotion! My mom did make a delicious dinner of his choosing (I told him I was going to make whatever he wanted and his response was, "Um.. I thought your mom was going to make dinner." Now I don't know how to feel about that!! On one hand, I didn't have to worry about making anything, on the other hand, I'm a crappy cook! Oh well, the food was scrumptious!) I had a very beautiful cake made for the occasion and we spent the night with family. Maybe next year will be a little better!

Every couldn't figure out who Nomie was! It really say Happy birthday HOMIE!

He thought it would be funny to put his face between the plumpers, and my dad thought it would be funny to....

put his face IN them! Happy Birthday Honey! I love you, even if you like my mother's cooking better then mine!

On Christmas Eve, we tried making a snowman but our attempts were short lived. Wouldn't you know, "the best snow on Earth" was too perfectly fluffy that it wouldn't stick together!! Kenna wasn't too upset, she settled on making snow angels instead.

After we came inside, we had some surprise visitors! Kennedie was so excited that she ran and gave Santa a huge hug! She couldn't wait to tell him that she wanted him to bring her a pink camera! Zai wasn't as sure about him as she was. He just stared at him and didn't move a muscle! It was really cute! Mae and Lucy gave Kenna a huge doll that she just loved! And Ash, if you read this, that thing freaks me out EVERY time I go in her room!

Christmas morning my parents came over and watched the kids open their presents.

Kenna was SOO excited that she got the pink camera that she had been begging for for the past few months!!After we opened presents we went to my parents house for breakfast. Here is Kennedie enjoying our traditional mickey mouse pancakes!

On Saturday, we drove to SLC to spend some time with Chris' family. It was a great ending for a very stressful year! The last present for the kid's showed up a little late, but Kennedie was thrilled!! She named her new puppy Saki. Pretty clever for a three year old!!
