Good Monday morning. All is well here. A bit of exciting news is that yesterday I bought Jack a pair of jeans for our Christmas Card pics this weekend.. To some that is not a big deal, but for Jack to be in jeans means he has gone back to his normal size enough that he doesn't need to wear expandable pants, i.e. sweats every day. Once he started taking his steroids for the swelling of his brain do to the gamma knife radiation, his weight started to increase dramatically. He was a size 8 and went up to a 16-18 in the course of months. So 18 months after all that started he is now back in jeans. It worked out that today was 'jeans' day at school, which I was not aware of when we bought our target jeans, but I am so glad that we had them ready when he figured that out. Yesterday when he tried them on and then sat down, he said, "hey mom, these don't pop open when I sit down!" Yeah God. Thanks for seeing us through.

If you haven't seen the pics I put up over the weekend be sure and scroll back, there are some fun zoo and family pics.

I will probably write this again, but this is my favorite time of year. I had a dream last night that I was listening to Christmas music in my car. Bebo Norman's Christmas Cd to be exact, Bebo and Mercy Me will be performing in town in a couple of weeks and I had heard that commercial in my car, along with the change of seasons, thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas, I guess I had sugarplums dancing in my head. So Merry Monday to all, and to all a good day. Ho-Ho-Ho

quick addition: Speaking of Bebo, that new Brittany S. song he has out is so powerful. The first time I heard it I wasn't sure what to think about it. Each time I hear it on the radio it is riveting to listen to, and I find myself praying for Brittany each time I hear it. What a great song, and what a bold man to speak those words over her life.

Okay, we are now officially kindred spirits! Bebo's new CD is my absolute favorite! I love to listen to it when I am out walking! It is pure worship for me. :)

See you tomorrow at 11:30! :)
