New Years Eve And A New Year

I had chemo 2 days before New Years Eve.  Day 2 after chemo is always my worst day.  Let's just say for the most part I layed like a limp noodle on the couch and watched all the bowl games all day long.  It was fantastic that I could watch football all day even though my mom hated it.  Tanners girlfriend Kayla drove from Utah to spend the holiday with us.  She is cute and super fun.  Towards evening the kids, Grandma Betty and Grandma Jeanne came over for appetizers and prime rib.  I did eat a little tiny bit.  My taster if always off when I have chemo.

Can you tell that we are absolutely in love with this little guy?
We played the candy bar game which is our tradition, I drank some sparkly and was unfortunately in bed by 10.

Happy for us, Tenielle, Tony and Tanner decided to stay one extra day, which we spent watching bowl games.

It's always kind of a let down when everyone leaves, but I will admit it's also nice to get back home and to some kind routine.

My friend Pamela came out to Idaho for 3 weeks while her husband had to work.  She is a super mom to her 4 kids.  She was suppose to go back to Baltimore the day before I came back to Phoenix, however her flight was canceled.  I was sitting in the airport on Wednesday and noticed her diaper bag, which I gave her and looked up to see her.  She and her kids were on my flight to Phoenix.  It was the quickest flight I've ever experienced because we chatted the entire way.  I sure love this friend of mine.  A few days before she left she brought me her first banana pie.  Oh, my it was out of this world delicious.
