"My Little Pumpkins"

Here is a new pic of the little ones at the pumpkin patch last weekend. They had so much fun riding around in the cart holding tightly to their treasures! Even the rest of us had a great time walking around enjoying the weather and all the decorations.
Another busy week almost over, Connor did so terrific at playgroup today and really enjoyed helping make the pinata to my surprise :) Next week should be fun getting to whack it apart with a bunch of toddlers! LOL
Love to all,

A Sight To See!

Connor has spent most of the weekend running around exploring like most any other two year old boy. Just the way we like to see him! Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch with all the kids-they each picked out a pumpkin, except Ryan who got an ear of corn, lol! It DID look pretty cool...alll dried out and funny colored. Connor kept trying to eat it.

Then we went to the park-even Belle came along. Ryan and Samantha fed a loaf of bread to the ducks, Stacy walked Belle, and poor Sam tried to keep up with Connor-who almost fell in the lake and manged to step in some ducky doo-doo :-) I felt helpless with my broken foot to do very much, but it was pretty out and a good day to be outside.

We are going back to Atlanta for Connor's treatment right before Halloween, and he does his next steroid dose at the beginning of the month, so for now we are just enjoying our little boy getting a chance to be just that-a little boy. Not on drugs that help him but also make him so mad and upset and hurt all the time...we have about two weeks each month of "our Connor" and it is wonderful to see the real him again. It is almost like he is in disguise or in costume when he is taking the steroids it changes his personality so drastically. So for now-we are just taking it all in and enjoying every second.

Thanks for checking on us!

All Is Well!

I am so, so, very sorry for the time between updates...quite a few of you have let me know I have scared the daylights out of you and for that I apologize. The scan came back stable-music to our ears! No cancer, free and clear for a whole year now-praise the Lord! Thank you everyone for all the love and support and mostly the prayers made on Connor's behalf for healing and for peace during his struggle against cancer and OMS. It is far from over, but we have come so far, and it has been so much easier with all of our family and friends love and friendship.

Hope you like the new pics! They were actually taken is August and early September. Samantha and Connor went to a princess birthday party (the girls dressed up, not the boys, lol) and Samantha was TinkerBelle. Connor had fun hanging out with cousin Adam and watching all the silly girls :)

The other pics were taken opening night at the new restaurant "La Margarita" In the last picture, Ryan is on the left, and Stacy is on the far right. Cousin Kevin is in the corner looking handsome. We are loving the restaurant, it is a fun place to just hang out and have fun-I see a lot of parties there in our future!

Anyway-back to why we have been MIA...Viruses! On the computer, not us, fortunately. Anyway-wiped out everything and we had to start over from scratch...luckily-Sam had my pics saved on disc so they were spared. And the other reason...

I broke my foot. Actually fractured it. I feel really silly even talking about it I am so embarrassed, but the fact is I slipped in the kitchen and did a very ungraceful sliding split, that ended with my left knee crashing into the tile floor and my left foot cracking as it got jammed sideways into the floor.

The culprit of the slippery spot? Her picture is posted on this site (not sure for how much longer, lol) And she immediately started licking me as I hit the ground! You'll be happy to know that her housebreaking IS coming along nicely, despite this incident that caused the fracture...anyway, hopefully I'll be all better soon, but in the meantime the trip to Seaworld has to be bumped back a few weeks. There is just no way I can walk that much at a theme park right now.

We are having fun with all the "fall happenings"...festivals, pumpkins, parties, cookies, etc...I am going to try and get some pics of the kids this weekend when we go to the pumpkin patch. Connor thinks the pumpkins are pretty cool, he just stares and points and them, absolutely fascinated!

Love and miss all of you! I have so much catching up to do. I have tried to stay up to date on all my on line friends, but I am way behind-so send me an email if I have missed anything major I should know about. Take care and God Bless,

*Our Family*
