Isn't She Lovely?

Last Saturday was Dana's Winter ball for school. She had the nicest date, her friend Jay. She looked amazing-my only regret is that I didn't get a picture of her by herself (we were hurrying) I won't worry too much b/c Prom is only a few months away (wow-I guess I should just plant a money tree in my backyard with all these dances! ;)

I Double Dog Dare Ya!!

Just when you think your kids are really smart.......

Leah went outside to go ice skating at the park across the street on Monday nite. Paul was watching her from our front window having a great time. The next thing he knows she is crying and blood is streaming from her face. His first reaction is that she knocked out her teeth (does the story of Cameron sound familiar here?), no, that's not the case!!!

Leah decided the "lick" the frost off of a metal pole, panicked, and proceed to rip her tongue off the pole. We just went over the results of doing such a dumb thing last week while watching America's Funniest Home Videos when someone else did that!!!

Needless to say her tongue is quite raw and painful!! We now call her "Flick"!!

Leah's Friend Needs Your Prayers

Leah came home this week and told me that a friend at her school (who was always so little and sickly) was at Children's Memorial Hospital. I guess she was bumped to the top of the list for a heart transplant. Her mom emailed me last night and told me she almost didn't make it thru the night. Today she is going thru a 12 hour surgery for a heart bridge (?). You can visit her website at The user name is Memorialfamily and the password is mustangs. Then it brings you to another password and that is Sharebearreed.

It's pretty sad since I know that I take healthy children for granted everyday. It makes you realize how good you really have it. Leah has always had a heart for this girl, her dad tragically died while cleaning out his gutters and fell. We are also thinking of ways we can raise money for her family so if you can think of anything, requests would be great!

So prayers for the family would be great also!! Thanks!!
