C'mon and join us, Let's Get Happy

Well, friends it's official...

I'm CANCER FREE!!!

We had a doctor's appointment last Wednesday and the scan was clear and my numbers are down. So, Let's Celebrate.

Like I said in a previous blog, our whole family would L.O.V.E. for you to join us

NEXT SATURDAY, JULY 9TH from 2-5 at Newcom- Founders Park in the Oregon District (45402). The park is on the corner of Green St. and Brown St. in Dayton if you want to do a Map Quest. (If it rains, we'll move the party to my house- just excuse the mess. The address will be at the park if that happens since I don't really want to post it here.)

There will be dessert, snacks and drinks (sorry, not THOSE kind of drinks!) Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket to sit on. There is a nice jungle gym/swing area for kids and we're hoping to have some corn hole too. We just wanted a time to celebrate together and say thank you for all the prayers, gifts, notes, emails, comments, dollars and encouragement that friends, family and even complete strangers have given us these past several months.

If you think you can make it, it would be great if you wouldn't mind leaving a comment (just so we can know how many treats to have.) 'Cuz it would be really awesome to have snacks for 100 people and have 20 come... or better yet, snacks for 20 and 100 come. Either way, come! And please forgive me if for some reason you come and I have to ask your name... that's the weird thing about blogs, right? You know when I poop and when I don't, but there's a chance I don't know anything about you.

We are off to wrap up our July 4th festivities but I thought I better post the details before you made other plans;)

Just got back in town from our family's vacation and had to check out your blog to see what you've been up to. So thankful to read that you are cancer free!

Praising God for his healing powers and for giving you the strength to endure and share your journey with us.
