Carson's 4th Birthday

First, lets note that I finally changed my banner. It's nothing fancy, but at least it's not Christmas! ha

Why this big blank space is here, I don't know....this post is on my last nerve!! Everything is spaced out all crazy...sorry!!!

Back on April 2nd (yes, that would be 3 weeks ago), we celebrated Carson's 4th birthday at Old Milo Tree Farm. He wanted a cowboy birthday party, so of course, mama game through. I'm sure the pictures will speak for themselves, but I think every kid enjoyed themselves. It was a GREAT place to host a birthday party. They also had a petting zoo, but I never made it over there for pictures. I love a party where I don't have to clean my house or clean up afterwards. In my book...that's the best kind of birthday party!

Once again, Beth came through with our birthday cake. So cute!!

What can I say....

I am absolutely the worst blogger! I did so good for such a long time and now....blaahhh!! I keep waiting for life or something to slow down, but so far, we are still just as busy. See, I told you I would still have that Merry Christmas banner up!! I think actually what is keeping me blogging so much is facebook. It's so easy to update FB so I totally neglect my blog. Let start with our last Houston trip which was (hold's been so long I have to check my calendar for the dates) o yeah...March 7th and 8th. Alan received an AWESOME report from our scans. The only visible sign of cancer was only in the liver. I mean, if that's not some answered prayers and a miracle, I don't know what is. I mean, we weren't just stable, we were NED is some areas. Yes, that's right NED...say it again...NED!!! After 2 1/2 years of fighting. We will be heading back to Houston the first part of May and praying for the same results!! We did have to tweak some of Alan's treatment b/c the side effects were just at a point of being unbearable, but praying that the tweak is ok and we don't have to find a different treatment. This is what's going on in our life for March, April and May...birthdays and ball games!! O me get through these months!! I have a friend that has a senior in HS and a daughter that is 7 (like Sydney and just as active) and she seems to be a little more stressed, so I'm going say she is winning the "see who's stressed out the most" contest! Carson's birthday is this weekend...turning 4. We're having a cowboy birthday so this should be interesting. Maybe I'll post some pictures. Next weekend our relay team is hosting a softball tournament in honor of Alan. All proceeds will benefit our local Relay for Life. Can't wait for this. It's going to be a blast....and a very long day! ha My SIL has started a be in prayer for them. Christian delivered their baby boy Cannon (our nephew..;-) about 10 weeks early last night. I don't feel it is my place to give all details, but just know that Christian and baby are doing good, but we all know they have a long way to go. We love them dearly and can't wait for the day Cannon gets to come home. Well, I'm sure there is alot more to talk about, but for now that's all I got. Thank you Lord for these beautiful days and thank you for giving Alan the strength and ability to enjoy them! Praying for many families on my mind today. Melissa
