Wigs and Giggles

So Mom decided it was time to find a wig. We went up to the cancer info floor to take a peek. Oh my, big, poofy, way too blonde wigs....the girl let her try some on and ...bring on the laughter. To be fair to me, my mom started it, she would crack up and I was quick to follow. So after 3 wigs and tears rolling down our cheeks, we left. Then we found another wig program in another hospital, alas, good, more natural, less blonde and poofy. She tried on 3 and we didn't laugh once. We found a good one that looked a lot like her old hair, plus stocking caps and a wig stand, all free of charge, there are some wonderful programs for cancer patients here. So, she has a wig to wear out now, she wore it yesterday and we didn't laugh once!!!
Two days until I am with my lovely family again, Madi told me all about playing in the snow and sledding down our neighbors hill. She said that hill was the most "poplier" place in the neighborhood and that she wasn't cold, "you wouldn't believe how much I am sweating" she claimed. She is having fun with Nana and I miss them all so much!!

Chainsaw Maniac and Fancy Boy

Clay got a chainsaw for Christmas and knew just what to do with it, holding it over his head and sometimes he moves his head around in a circle like a crazed chainsaw man!!! It is so funny...

Ok, sometimes we call him "Fancy Boy." It is this look on his face and he will tilt his head to the side and stick his hip out and carry around one of my old purses. We don't see Fancy Boy that often, amazingly, my cousin was able to capture the Fancy Boy face on film.

On a roll here in Little Rock

I am so lucky to be here with my mom for a week. I have MISSED her. She is looking good, last day of the 2nd round of chemo today, then comes the hard part when her immune system goes to the crapper. I am glad to be here to help her through this week. We are watching "Gone with the Wind" like old times and reading a lot. It is weird to have so much down time between visits to the chemo room, but that is how it goes, you just roll with it. I got to meet some other patients yesterday and I am so inspired by them, some way too young, with young families, but their spirit is what gets me, big smiles and a "bring it on" attitude, I pray for them too everyday. I miss my family back home, I called Corby yesterday and he was giving Clayton a bath at 2:00 in the afternoon. I asked why a bath now, he said something about some BBQ sauce? Ha ha!! This week will make me appreciate my little family, messes and all......

Land Shark

Clayton is a biter, always has been since he was a nursing (ouch) baby. I thought it would go away, but no, it's worse. I asked my pediatrician about it, she said to use a code word every time he bites to make him stop. I am going to use "RELEASE" because that's what Steve Martin said to that scary dog on some movie and it's appropriate and a little funny. This picture would only be better if the shark was biting Madi's little neighbor friend for no good reason. Wish me luck!! (I used to rag on "biter's" because they would get hold of Madi when she was little, that really came back to bite me in the A@#, literally)

My Sweet Bike

Corby saw this random old bike in a warehouse. The story was that some guy had it forever, it used to be his Grandma's bike, and he used to ride around in the basket. He begged Corby to take it and fix it up to ride again. Alas, my Christmas present....It is like a geriatric Trike!! I love it, I can ride around with Madi and carry a ton of stuff in the back. No Clayton in the basket, he would put his fingers in the spokes or crawl out, maybe in a couple years?? Anyway, it is fun, it does have a gangster lean to the left, but I only ended up in the ditch once. As if my neighbors needed another reason to think I am crazy :)


Christmas was a whirlwind as usual, crazy but fun and we have so much to be thankful for.

Clay and Hanna

Clay more interested in breakfast

Madi pumped and shocked about her digital camera.

Opening presents can be fun!
