LIFE IS GRAND!!!!



So, it's been a little while since I posted. We got WONDERFUL NEWS on Friday about Ethan's scans and bone marrow biopsy. Everything was clear and Ethan is CANCER FREE! We couldn't be happier. Now we are awaiting news about a trial that we signed Ethan up for. It is an antibody trial to help keep this disease from ever coming back....that being said, it is a trial, so some of the kids get randomized to take the antibody and others don't. We should know more by tomorrow.


Today we're just hanging out at home and I have stamp club tonight. I actually got my cards cut so I'll get my stuff ready to go when the kids go down for a nap. We've been inside all morning even though it is nice outside because we were waiting on the Direct TV man to arrive. He was late, of course, but it is all hooked up now. The kids are watching a new station called PBS Sprout. Ethan seems to like it and Ava could care less if we had a TV.
Here's my card for Today's Splitcoasters Sketch. I haven't done one in quite a while so thought I would try this week.

I asked the kids if I could take their pictures this morning and I said that Ethan could lay on the floor and Ava could get on his back.....well I'm sure you can picture how all of this went. I'll attach a few pictures. I have some new pictures too. I'm actually working on something. We'll see if I get it up and running in the next couple of months. These cards are for an "order" that I had! That's a little clue. I've been thinking about this for a long time now and I'm in the process of starting up a website to sell my cards and other "ideas." Any advice from anyone out there. I'm going to start out small and add as I see that I can keep up.Here are my cards. ? I've been using my computer some to print out sentiments and then cutting them out with my cuttlebug.

Oh my goodness! I found your blog after you posted a card for Page Plans sketch. I am so happy to hear that your little one is now cancer free! I'm also so sorry you all are going through this! I am also a cancer survivor and have always said that me being sick wasn't nearly as hard as if it had been one of my children. I will be keeping y'all in my prayers! I am now 5 years out. Your Ethan will be there before you know it! Take care! Hugs! :)
