Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

How time flies!  It has been more than 6 months since I have posted anything here!  Shame, for shame!  :D  I will try to do better in 2015, but no promises!

I have gone from scrapbooking to beading to crocheting/knitting to sewing this year in my crafting.  And I'm finally back to the scrapbooking!  All of my grandbabies are growing up!  And, I'm thinking Araya Lynn Jones, born October 27th, will be the last grandbaby for us.  She is number 9 and that makes 5 girls and 4 boys.  We love them all dearly, too!

Since I've been out of scrapbooking for almost a year, I decided to start back up with my first layout being of Araya.

Jessica took her for her 2-month doctor visit.  She weighs 13 lb. 12 oz. and is 24.5" long!  She is going to be a TALL girl!  :D  She is so sweet!  She is sleeping most of the night (6-7 hours) and wakes in such a pleasant mood!  She does her best "talking and cooing" with you at this time!  :D

In other news, the family was in this past weekend to celebrate our Christmas together.  Unfortunately, Cheryl and Adalina got the flu, with Nat feeling like it was coming on, so they could not come.  I was so sad they had to miss out on our gathering!  Adalina was admitted to the hospital, but is home and doing much better now.

Here is a GREAT family picture that Liz captured on her camera.  We took the group outside this year.  The photo turned out FANTASTIC!!

What a good looking group!  :D  Well, I just MIGHT be a bit prejudiced!  :D  Doesn't Tim look great?!

Speaking of Tim, he will be getting more scans to see how the cancer is doing.  There are a couple of spots that just are not going away and there is another lump that the doctor wouldn't say was cancer until he sees the scans.  And, the uveitus in his eyes is much better!  He still has bouts of diarrhea from time to time.  He doesn't sleep well, but generally takes a nap in the afternoon to help with his tiredness.  He is able to keep up with his pastoral duties and studies, to which I am so thankful!  I would love to hear those words, "cancer free" in the year 2015!  Continue to pray with us towards that end!  But, if not, we will keep on keeping on!

Happy New Year, Vicky! One of the highlights for me this past year was seeing you, even briefly.

We're praying 2015 brings those wonderful words "cancer free" to your ears. :)
