After a rather hectic and scary week, life at our house is getting back to normal. I NEVER WANT TO TAKE NORMAL DAYS for GRANTED. Jack is feeling good. No sick kids that I know about. Tonight we had a wonderful dinner that Micah and Amanda cooked and a fun game of cards. I had a chance to love on my little man Jack...and tomorrow will post some cute pictures...He just makes me SMILE and how he loves his POP.
Jack and I are leaving tomorrow on a trip to Canton and then on to Dallas for a few days of R & R and a stop at market. I EVEN got a 5 star hotel on PRICELINE for $50 a night....and its a hotel we love.
So tonight I am VERY thankful for a very normal day. THE WINNER for the final giveaway celebrating my
1 year blog anniversary is
Carrie/AKA Mama Bear at 4 THE LOVE OF FAMILY

and you know one is never enough for a runner-up prize for the second name drawn will go to

Have a wonderful weekend. I am hoping to have some time to visit my favorite blogs while at the hotel.

Next week I am going to post pictures of my home makeover that Terri did while we were in Vail. Hope you will visit her BLOG....I want her to love blogging and make lots of new friends. My new design is in the works. I hope to have it up in the next week. I love a NEW LOOK!

Have a wonderful, wonderful, restful, relaxing trip! And I do so totally understand "loving normal"! (after going through the period of time when our then 14 year old was diagnosed with cancer and going through chemo...thankful and blessed that he is a healed and healthy 19yr old college Sophomore, normal is very, very good!)

Blessings & Aloha!
