CATCHING UP

Can't believe it has been so long since I posted. Started several times and something came up and didn't finish.

On the 19th of December, Elizabeth's 9th birthday, we had SNOW not much but it it made things look like Christmas.
Sadness struck our family on the 21st of December. Some of you may recall last year our Daisy was ill. Doctor was afraid of lymphoma and she had early stages of kidney disease. But she perked up and was back to her usual self for almost a year. And it was decided she didn't have lymphoma. Then all of a sudden she started acting strange. I took her in and she was full of lymphoma tumors and nothing to do but send her to heaven for healing there. Picked up her ashes after Christmas. This was the same veterinarian who had to send our precious Beau (Black Lab) to heaven on the 23rd of December nine years ago and had not forgotten.

But, Christmas was wonderful with 18 from ages 1 to 92 gathered at our house to celebrate. Things were hopping with seven grandchildren from age 1 to almost 16.






Elizabeth turned 9 on the 19th but her mom was sick (she has an outer ear infection and still fighting it) so we all celebrated a few days after Christmas.

I looks like you had a lot of wonderful celebrations. I am so sorry about the loss of your pet. It's hard to have one put down, and so much so around the holidays. Take care, it is good to see you back to blogging.
