The Three Wise Men gave gifts...then they followed the Spirit and took another way home. Because they journeyed another way, Mary and Joesph were able to take baby Jesus to safety.

You have given our family a gift. You could have done other things with that gift, but you followed the Spirit and gave it to us. Because of that...we will be better able to help save our dad.

Thank you for that.

The Barrett's, Flake's and Taylor's

A very special "Thank You" to: Anthon, Ashley, Roman, Sterling, Homer, Connie, Brendan, Katie, Betty, Mckay, Sherri, Gerald, Eileen, Lydia, Micheal, Garrett, Shauna, Byron and Shannon.

I found this picture of my parents on my computer. I was taken in 2008
We had just hiked to the top of "Four Mile Knoll" here in Snowflake.
I can't wait for my dad to be healthy enough to do that again!

I feel like there needs to be a new post on this blog....but there's really not much to blog about and I guess that is a blessing! "No news is good news" sometimes, right?

My dad is doing pretty much the same. He's been on the transplant list for 8 days. I think his next doctor appointment is scheduled for the spring...unless his health takes a bad turn before than...which we obviously hope isn't the case.

My parents had a photo session yesterday. I am very excited to see the results!

Today is Cooper's 2nd birthday (he's my parents 3rd grandson...Eric+Kim's little guy). My parents are going to celebrate with him this weekend and than come celebrate with Adelin next weekend for her 6th birthday! (Being a Grandparent must be so fun!)

Things have been crazy busy for my mom who is working 10+ hours a day. She works at a this time of year is really busy....and they are short handed. She also has a Santa Claus size list of sewing projects!

I guess that's all for now! :)

Have a good one!!!
