Though Bart wasn't able to join me for Christmas this year (he's crossing the Atlantic ocean right now!), I had a great time with my family and friends. This year has been really great as I reflect on all of the busy-ness, accomplishments and blessings. Next year will be just as busy with the upcoming shower, bachelorette party, and wedding... not to mention spring semester at Flagler and all of the planning and studying that accompanies the previously mentioned things. It's all exciting and I love the changes and fast pace that life offers right now. For now, I'll leave you all with a link to the pictures from Christmas Day. The pics can be downloaded to your computer individually by clicking on the picture and then "Download" above the pic.
Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you all have a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year!!

All wedding plans are right on track and I really have everything decided that's important. I can't wait for all of our family and closest friends to be with us on our exciting day!
I'm officially over the hump with my Flagler degree and have only spring (starting January 5th) and next fall before I'm finished with my degree. Wohoo! It's been difficult to do both work and college full time, but Bart's so amazing and supportive (especially sharing me with the classes and my study time).
Hopefully by now everyone has received Save the Date cards for our wedding, and ladies, be sure to keep your eye out for shower invites too... comming soon!
I hope that everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year!!

We went out for a picnic to Washington Oaks State Park today and took Tinkerbell with us. We had a great time bike riding and having lunch, but we couldn't go into the garden because they don't allow dogs in there. (He was going to ask in the garden.) After biking and lunch we came home and Bart took Tinkerbell to the back yard. I went to the back yard to let them in through the sliding glass door and Bart was sitting on our garden bench with Tinkerbell. He asked me to come out and see something and put Tink down to come up to me. She had a little note tied around her neck with a bow. When I bent down to read it read this:
(front)Mommy, The daddy wants to know...
(inside)Will you marry him?
(back) I hope you say yes! (signed with a little paw and Tink's name)

"Today the oncologist told us that Johnny's lung cancer has been diagnosed malignant non-small cell lung cancer in stage 4. He recommends chemo therapy (which will not cure - only relieve symptoms and reduced the tumour.....it has entered the bloodstream and spread to the adrenal glands.)He will start tomorrow afternoon and every three weeks for 3 sessions then evaluate progress after that with a pet scan. The prognosis is 6-12 months with the chemo and 2-3 months left without treatment.
This is a very difficult day for Johnny, Scarlett, and me, spent in tears of shock and unbelief. We have not called anyone yet except Mom and Dad to tell the news. We want to wait. Today we rallied together as we have weathered every other past crisis in our lives and spent alot of time hugging and praying as we strengthen our faith. We have cried our eyes out together and allowed ourselves a one day pity party. Now we are ready to face this giant and give the ole devil a boot in his pants!"

"Today, as a result of the biopsy, the doctor gave my dad 6 months to a year. Through the tears that keep flowing, all I can do is play this song over and over. Despite what the doctor said, my family and I are choosing to still believe in a miracle and God's goodness. Thank you for believing with us."
You can see the song she's talking about at her blog bookmarked on my page. Please keep her family in your prayers.

Hope and her family: As some of you know Hope's son, Jaylon, was born a premie. He's been making great improvements with The Sharpe Family's continued faith and prayers. For 67 days Hope and Jaylon have been in Orlando at the Ronald McDonald House and the Florida Children's Hospital. Through the ups and downs their family has kept an amazing positive attitude through it all and their faith in God has been such an inspiration to those of us who are blessed to know them. Please pray that Jaylon's improvement continues and they are able to come home soon.
Jane (Bart's mom): she was diagnosed with breast cancer, had to have it removed and then went through chemotherapy once a month for 4 months. Through it all she has kept a wonderful outlook and been so positive. Please pray that the cancer stays out of her body and that her blood work continues to look good.
