Grams Update

Thank you all for your prayers and kind words for my grandma. She is actually doing well. We don't know for how long, but for now she is somewhat stable. My dad made it out there on Thursday and now he and his 5 brothers and sisters are there with her now. She is thrilled to have them all with her.

They've given her some steroids which have opened her lungs to allow her to breathe better. She is very alert and talking. If she does get out of the hospital, she will probably go straight into hospice care. We are just taking it a day at a time. One minutes she's doing great and the next minute they are not giving us much hope. My dad just spends all day at the hospital and then goes back to his brother's house at night. I'm so glad he is there with his brothers and sisters.

In other news, we took the girls to see the Mini-Nutcracker last night and they loved it. It was preformed by 13-18 year old girls, and 2 boys, and it was so well done. The set and the dancers were amazing. Sydney just started ballet so she loved seeing the pretty costumes and all the girls on point.

This morning, my sisters and I are throwing a baby shower for my sister Heather. She is due with a little girl, Lily Jane, at the end of January. I'm so excited for her and can't wait to welcome another niece into our family. While I am at the shower, Brian and Uncle Eddy (whose back from Chicago, Yeah!) are taking the girls to ICE at Opryland Hotel. This is something the 4 of them do every year. It's a tradition. This year it's theme is "Santa Clause is Coming to Town".

Tonight, Brooklyn has a choir show at church 5:00 and Sydney has a ballet performance at 6:00. Still not sure how we are going to pull this off, but we will make it work somehow. This time of year is always so crazy so if my blogging is sporadic you will know why. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We may get some flurries here in Nashville tonight which would make the girls so happy. They want snow so bad.

I'm glad your dad made it to be with your grandma!

I used to dream of dancing professionally until a knee injury ended my ballet "career"...I can still remember the first time I saw the was love at first sight! I also remember how excited I was to (finally) get my first pair of point shoes, a right of passage for every ballerina! Hope you have fun with all your holiday recitals and shows!

I read your blog once when you posted on Kelly's Korner. It was the one regarding your brother-in-law. Very attractive and looks like your girls really enjoy him. I saw that he moved to Chicago, which is where I live now. Sad to see he is not in Chicago anymore.
