Bathtime for Sam and Cam!

Sorry everybody.. I know it's been a while. You can email me if you miss me. I'd love to hear from you!

So, I've started a MySpace thingy. If you want to see it, go to

I'm really liking it and would like to get in touch with any biola/alturas people that might be out there! I think you all are swell!

This picture is of Sam staring at a light at Downtown Disney. We finally got our passes again, so now we can go whenever we want for the next year! (We're going this next wednesday!)

Well, after all this hullaballoo, Greg's probably going to go back to teaching. No, it's not our favorite plan of the ones we've had so far, but it's teach again, or move to the other side of the continent where houses don' t cost near as much and you can still find a job that pays enough for life. He's putting in his application this next week.

Greg's cancer is also looking very positive. No tumors anywhere in his body that we know of. He gets his CT scan done on the first of march.

Other than that, things are kind of boring 'round here. We're just hoping to find something to do with ourselves until whenever Greg works again. Sam keeps us pretty busy, though. :)

Silly Lil' Guy!

Cameron is my nephew. He's a chunk! We think he's a lot of fun.

We went and saw my sister's new baby this last week. Wow. What a teeny tiny lil' guy! He was 5lbs. 13oz when we got there. He's so amazing, though. He's really a miracle. I had no idea how close he actually was to not making it. We thank God so much that he did. His umbilicle cord was wrapped around his neck three times and they had to recessitate (sp?) him. He must have been super active in there. Poor Karlie. A C-section is no fun. I wish I could put movies on here because we got a really funny one of Karlie "making him talk".

My sister had her baby today! Crazy huh?

His name is Hayden Asher. I don't know much about him yet (weight, hair color, etc.) because she had to go in for an emergency c-section because his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. Thank you God that he's safe! Sounds like he and Karlie are fine, but I'll know more tonight.

The picture is of Sam a couple of months ago, but I just love it so much. Don't you? He's such a goober!

We are doing really well. Christmas was super-great! =) We had a really nice time visiting my family in good ol' nor cal. The snow was crazy on the way back, but it kept us awake. We did the overnight trip thing because we wanted Sam to sleep through it all and not be awake and crying all day. He got sick while we were up there.. we took him to the emergency room because his temp got up to 103. We were really worried for a little bit, but he's doing much better now. It was just a viral infection of some kind. He was really generous and gave it to Greg and I too! What a sweetie.

Please pray.. there's another job prospect out there for Greg as a networking tech at one of the nearby school districts. This would be a BIG load off our shoulders as far as our financial situation goes.

Greg had his second (and hopefully final) round of chemo on Wednesday of last week. It seemed to go well. He got the hiccups again.. a little less often this time, thank goodness. We think we've got the cancer taken care of, now. He's got another checkup in 4 months. Thank you so much for your support and prayers through this tough time. I know that they have helped soooo much.

Sam's keeping me busy. He's gaining two more teeth on bottom and four more on top, the poor little guy. Between naps, he's been a bit fussy. I think he's also a little bored with his parents.
