It's Wednesday already?

Although this photo was taken the week before we left on vacation - both Nora and I have worn these same outfits while here in KY while we visit family. We drove it straight through and made it in record setting time from TX to KY - only 14 hours! We arrived Saturday around 9am

...and since my broken camera is still broken - really really broken - as in - stuck in video mode only - I've not been able to take photos while here in KY visiting :( and that makes me very sad!

However you can betcha that I have been grabbin up my step moms every chance I get and using it! I'm sure she won't mind since there is no worry of wasting film! ;) and LUCKY for them and us - we had an extra photo printer that we got free with a rebate still BRAND NEW in the unopened box that had been sitting in the garage for a year that we brought with us to GIFT to them this year for Christmas! :) Dave Ramsey would be so proud of our baby steps, as we just started the "Total Money Makeover" November 1st.

Just wanted everyone to know that yesterday my daddy got a good report from his most recent PET Scan tests. Edited to Add: I missed it yesterday when they came home from the doctor - but today heard that the scan found a small spot of some sort. Something to do with the liver or normally located near the liver but Dad's wasn't.. so they will do a MRI test on it after the first of the year. The doctor said that it could be normal for Dad but that he didn't know what it was and in appeared to be in a different than normal spot... but all in all a GOOD REPORT :)

Thank you for all of your prayers for my Daddy, Ollie Newton during this past year!! He learned that he had Stage 2 Rectal Cancer in April and underwent several radium and chemo treatments before his surgery in July of this year.

It has really meant a lot to my Daddy that so many people form ALL OVER were thinking of him and prayin for him.....

and even took the time to send him a get well or thinking of you card!!

Just look at that stack of cards he showed me - ALL from my online QUILTING friends! You all are so AwEsOmE!!! :)

Look at this funny one from my HGTV friend NICUnurse! ;)

Love from Kentucky!
